Fed-Up California Conservatives Make Power Move Against “Sanctuary City” Status

Sure, we make fun of the liberal bastion of California quite often because a majority of the state are tree-hugging, crunchy hippies who are still waiting for socialism to kick in. But we must not forget our conservative brothers and sisters who live (mostly) in the northern parts of the state, where traditional American values still run deep.

Lately, a group of angry conservatives in the southern part of the state decided to fight back against the “sanctuary city” status that puts their communities in grave danger, and they scored a major victory…

Breitbart reports:

The city council of Los Alamitos, California, in Orange County voted 4-1 Monday night for an ordinance to defy the state’s new “sanctuary state” law, and to assist federal law enforcement in stopping illegal immigration.

As Breitbart News reported Sunday, the city took on SB 54, the so-called “California Values Act,” which constrains state and local cooperation with federal immigration enforcement. The U.S. Department of Justice is challenging SB 54 as one of three “sanctuary state” laws that, it claims, violate the U.S. Constitution’s Supremacy Clause.

Members of the city council were concerned that SB 54 required them to violate their oaths of office, which require them to uphold and defend the Constitution. Although legal experts say that there is a chance SB 54 will survive in the courts — since unlike the other two law it merely requires state and local government not to assist federal law enforcement, while the other two laws interfere with federal authority — city council members were still concerned,

The Orange County Register notes that the city council debate on Monday evening was intense on both sides:

While the crowd had dwindled both in and outside the chamber when the vote came, people erupted in cheers after the vote and began chanting “USA.” But on the pro-immigrant rights side, there was this chant: “The people united, will never be divided.”

Someone shouted out to Councilman Warren Kusumoto, who introduced the legislation, “great American patriot!” while someone else screamed out “America first.”

Throughout the night, many in the crowd of more than 150 people from Los Alamitos, Long Beach and other communities engaged in heated debate – sometimes in front of the dais, other times with each other.

Separately, Register also reported that Kusumoto was particularly concerned that SB 54 would require him to disobey the Constitution: “California legislators are bulling local elected officials into violating our oath of office,” he said.

The council also voted to direct the city attorney of Los Alamitos — the county’s second-smallest city — to prepare an amicus brief on the side of the Department of Justice in its case against the State of California.

Pro-Trump Protesters Rally Outside Oakland Café That Wouldn’t Serve Latino Cop

Pro-Trump protester at Oakland Cafe (AshtonBirdie / YouTube / Screenshot)

A group of pro-Trump Californians protested outside the Haste Muerte café (which means “Until Death” in Spanish) in East Oakland for refusing to serve a uniformed police officer last month.

“This is Trump country,” the protesters chanted, according to the East Bay Times. They also chanted, “Blue lives matter.” Supporters of the cafe reportedly showed up to the rally with signs and chanting, “Let’s go, Oakland!”

Some of the pro-Trump protesters who came out in support of Oakland Police Department Sgt. Robert Trevino, who is Latino, carried American flags and wore flag-themed clothing.

On February 16, Sgt. Trevino was refused a cup of coffee by the workers at the cafe due to “a policy of asking police to leave for the physical and emotional safety of our customers and ourselves.”

On its Instagram page, the cafe wrote its own account of why it refused to serve the Latino police officer:

Last Friday, February 16th a police (OPD) entered our shop and was told by one of our worker-owners that “we have a policy of asking police to leave for the physical and emotional safety of our customers and ourselves.” Since then, cop supporters are trying to publicly shame us online with low reviews because this particular police visitor was Latino. He broadcasted to his network that he was “refused service” at a local business and now the rumblings are spreading.

The post also featured a crossed-out Oakland police seal and badge in pink with the Spanish words “Habla con tu vecinxs no con la policia,” which translates to, “Speak with your neighbors, not the police.”

The coffee shop also supports convicted cop-killer Assata Shakur (JoAnne Chesimard), who escaped from a New Jersey prison and fled to Cuba after being convicted of the murder of police officer Werner Foerster in 1973. The Women’s March supports Shakur, and the felon has even received support from Congresswoman Maxine Waters (D-CA), who is being challenged by conservative Latino Omar Navarro (R) in California’s 43rd congressional district..

In an email sent to Breitbart News on Monday, one of the pro-Trump supporters present at the rally, Ashton Whitty, said that the anti-cop counter-protesters, ironically, threatened to call the cops on the pro-police protesters.

“After five minutes of standing outside the coffee shop, a man comes out and threatens to call the cops,” Whitty wrote in the email to Breitbart News.

She continued:

Basically he threatened to call the cops because we were peacefully protesting a coffee shop that hates cops. This coffee shop also has a picture of Assata Shakur, the famous cop killer, who escaped prison and fled for Cuba where she was protected by Fidel Castro. Funny, how the coffee shop supports a FBI wanted terrorist but not police officers who serve and protect. Shortly after this man threatened to call the police, a man stops his truck in the middle of the street and walks up to us, threatening us. He’s saying “there’s going to be consequences” as his friend is putting on black gloves and wielding a bat. Next thing you know a third guy shows up ripping down flags and attacks someone with a flag. Someone on the flag side tries to defend him with pepper spray, but someone from Antifa then pepper sprays all of them and also pepper sprays me. All while we’re getting pepper sprayed one guy is hit with a bat. Someone was also tazed as you can hear in my video. When the police show up, people start calling us nazis despite the fact they attacked us for peacefully protesting.

The cafe also featured a picture of a Trump hat, designed in the classic “Make America Great Again” style, but in blue, which reads instead: “Make Racists Afraid Again.”

According to the East Bay Times, approximately a dozen of the pro-Trump protesters left the cafe and showed up at the Temescal farmers market on the 5300 block of Claremont Avenue and confronted Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf during her “mobile mayor” gathering.

Schaaf has been accused of obstructing justice for informing her constituents of a raid by officials with federal Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) last month.

Trump Gets Instant Revenge After California Releases Illegal Alien Criminals

President Trump, with his decades of doing business in the most brutal market on earth, learned a few tricks along the way. One of them being: never let anyone undermine you.

After California liberals began releasing criminal illegal aliens, Trump found a way to make sure the American public knew exactly what was going on…

Daily Caller reports:

The White House released a list of criminal illegal immigrants set free by the state of California in lieu of allowing ICE to detain them, in a Thursday morning statement.

The Trump administration filed suit against the state of California Wednesday for classifying itself as a sanctuary state. “California is using every power it has — and some it doesn’t — to frustrate federal law enforcement. So you can be sure I’m going to use every power I have to stop them,” Attorney General Jeff Sessions said in his announcement of the lawsuit Thursday.

“When a foreign national in the United States illegally is arrested on criminal charges, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) can issue a ‘detainer,’ a request that local law enforcement notify ICE before the illegal alien is released from custody. As a Sanctuary State, California refuses to honor these detainers and instead releases criminal aliens back onto the streets,” the White House explained in its release.

The White House then listed several criminal illegal immigrants released by California, including:

On Aug. 2, 2017, the Santa Rosa Police Department in California arrested a citizen of Guatemala, on charges of inflicting corporal injury to a spouse/cohabitant, and booked him into the Sonoma County Jail in Santa Rosa, California. ICE lodged a detainer the same day. The next day at approximately 8:12 p.m. PDT, a Sonoma County Jail sergeant called ICE and advised that the suspect would be released shortly. At 8:36 p.m. PDT, Sonoma County Jail emailed ICE indicating his release.The jail provided ICE with only 24 minutes notice before it released the alien, despite the fact that the jail is located about 65 miles from the nearest ICE field office. ICE did not arrest the alien due to insufficient time given to respond. On Aug. 18, 2017, the Santa Rosa Police Department in California arrested the same individual as a suspect in the murder of his alleged girlfriend. He remains in Sonoma County Sheriff’s custody with an ICE-lodged immigration detainer.
On February 25, 2018, a citizen of Mexico, was arrested near his residence in Stockton, CA by ICE. On February 21, 2017, he was convicted of Lewd and Lascivious Acts with a Child under 14 and was sentenced to 180 days jail.

On February 14, 2018, a citizen of Mexico, was arrested in Anaheim, CA by ICE. Previously, in, 2004, he was convicted of Lewd & Lascivious Acts with a Minor under 14 and sentenced to 45 days in juvenile hall. No detainer was issued following this arrest. On August 10, 2016, he was convicted of Felony Possession of a Controlled Substance for Sale and sentenced to 3 years’ probation. An immigration detainer was lodged, but not honored. He was removed to Mexico on March 5, 2018.

EXCLUSIVE–California Sanctuary City Laws Likely Responsible for 5K Crimes by Released Criminal Illegal Aliens

Illegal Crime

The state of California and the sanctuary city laws that make it a safe-haven for criminal illegal aliens is likely responsible for at least 5,000 crimes that were committed by criminal illegal aliens released by local authorities rather than being handed over to federal immigration officials.

According to data conducted for Breitbart News by the Center for Immigration Studies’ Director of Policy Jessica Vaughan, the state of California — which refuses to hand over criminal illegal aliens to the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency — makes up about half of all non-cooperation with federal immigration officials in the U.S.

For example, roughly 50 percent of the ICE detainers — the hold that federal immigration officials place on a criminal illegal alien — ignored by local sanctuary city authorities across the U.S. occurred in California.

In mid-2017, ICE Director Thomas Homan revealed that about 10,000 criminal illegal aliens had been released by sanctuary cities across the U.S. and went on to commit more crimes. This figure, though, could be even higher for the year of 2017.

Based on this data, Vaughan told Breitbart News that it is “reasonable to assume” that about half of those crimes committed by released criminal illegal aliens occurred in the state of California.

“That is 5,000 crimes that occurred that could have been prevented if they had cooperated with ICE as federal law provides,” Vaughan told Breitbart News. “What is the cost to Californians for that crime spree?”

“Surely it is a lot more than the cost of the few minutes of a California jail officer’s time to notify ICE, or to keep the offenders in custody for ICE for a few hours,” Vaughan said. “But California politicians like Gov. Brown, Xavier Becerra, and Libby Schaaf would rather have the crime, apparently.”

This estimate was gathered by provided ICE data, as the agency says it has no way of tracking the figure of how many exact criminal illegal aliens have been released into the public by California’s sanctuary laws.

“Lack of cooperation from sanctuary jurisdictions means that they do not notify ICE when they release an individual on whom we have filed a detainer, so we have no way of knowing exactly how many such individuals they have released,” an ICE official told Breitbart News. “We often become aware of an alien’s release from a jurisdiction when we re-encounter the alien later during targeted enforcement.”

As Breitbart News reported, Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf recently warned criminal illegal aliens ahead of a regional raid by ICE, helping convicted illegal alien sex offenders, armed robbers, and drunk drivers escape deportation.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions’ Department of Justice is now investigating Schaaf for obstruction of justice. About 47 percent of likely voters say the DOJ should prosecute Schaaf for obstruction of justice, while only 36 percent of likely voters say the DOJ should not prosecute the mayor.

Sessions announced a DOJ lawsuit against the state of California, challenging three of its sanctuary state laws that protect criminal illegal aliens from deportation by ICE.

Jerry Brown: Trump ‘Going to War Against the State of California’

Gov. Jerry Brown

SACRAMENTO, California — California Governor Jerry Brown complained Wednesday that the Trump administration “is basically going to war against the state of California” after Attorney General Jeff Sessions filed a lawsuit Tuesday evening against California’s “sanctuary state” laws.

The lawsuit targets three laws in particular: the Immigrant Worker Protection Act (HB 450), the Inspection and Review of Facilities Housing Federal Detainees law (AB 103); and the California Values Act (SB 54). The Trump administration argues that California’s laws are unconstitutional under the Supremacy Clause, which states that federal law “shall be the supreme Law of the Land.”

Sessions flew to Sacramento to mark the occasion with a speech Wednesday morning to a meeting of the California Peace Officers Association, which had opposed SB 54. In his address, Sessions compared California’s resistance to federal immigration law to the efforts of the Old South and the Confederacy to resist the Union.

“There is no nullification.  There is no secession.  Federal law is ‘the supreme law of the land.’  I would invite any doubters to Gettysburg, and to the graves of John C. Calhoun and Abraham Lincoln,” Sessions said.

In response, Brown was enraged.

“This is really unprecedented for the chief law enforcement officer of the United States to come out to California and act more like Fox News than a law enforcement officer. This is a political stunt,” he told reporters, as quoted by The Hill.

Ironically, the Obama administration, through Attorney General Eric Holder, challenged an Arizona immigration law on similar grounds to those that Sessions is using to confront California — and prevailed at the Supreme Court.

Nevertheless, Brown warned: “This is basically going to war against the state of California, the engine of the American economy. It’s not wise, it’s not right, and it will not stand.”

In an additional swipe, the governor declared: “We know the Trump administration is full of liars. They’ve pled guilty already to the special counsel.”

And, echoing California Insurance Commissioner Dave Jones, Brown attacked Sessions’s own Southern origins, saying that the Golden State did not need “a fellow from AL coming to talk to us about secession and protecting human and civil rights.”

U.S. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), who represents the “sanctuary city” of San Francisco, chimed in as well, accusing the Trump administration of “brazen aggression and intimidation tactics.”

BREAKING: Chicago To Allow Illegals To Vote

And liberals always tried to counter the argument that Democrats pander to illegal aliens for the hope of extra votes. Looks like we were right!

Dangerous reports:

The nation’s third largest city is implementing a new government identification program that will allow non-citizens to vote.

The new ID cards, called CityKey, were designed with non-citizens in mind and the city of Chicago announced these cards will enable the user to register to vote.

Democratic Mayor Rahm Emanuel is facing down a 25% approval rating in the midst of Chicago being swept with an epidemic of violence and financial ruin. The mayor began the new CityKey ID program late last year boasting of its accessibility to the “undocumented” and people the mayor said were “on the sidelines.”

Emanuel is seeking reelection in 2019, and this unique ID can be used to register someone as a voter in federal, state, and local elections which have some people wondering who will be taking advantage of that.

The ID also purposely excludes some of the user’s information required by the federal government to allow ICE agents to track card holders.

Fox News’s Tucker Carlson reported, “[Rahm Emanuel] wants to get reelected even if it takes illegal voters.”

Chicago Alderman Ameya Pawar was a sponsor of the initiative for the cards and denies they can register an illegal alien. He is confident the card holder will need a separate ID for someone to register as a voter.

Pawar described the “misunderstanding” about the new cards, saying his own immigrant parents plan to use theirs for public transportation and the library.

Pawar told Tucker Carlson the consequence of an illegal immigrant defrauding the Illinois Board of Elections would likely be deportation.

Carlson asked in an interview with Pawar if he supports non-naturalized people voting, and if the card is a clever way to skirt federal law.

“When you let illegal aliens use this card… when in fact you are not required to show proof of citizenship to register to vote in Illinois, you’re abetting voter fraud and you know it,” said Carlson.

Pawar assured Tucker there were “laws in place” to prevent that and lectured Tucker on trying to “pit” neighbors against each other.

Already in California there is concern over the drivers licenses non-citizens are permitted to have which now automatically register the holder to vote. Towns in Maryland have already been suggesting legally allowing undocumented people to vote locally.

As of now, the city of Chicago requires no proof of citizenship to become a registered voter. The state of Illinois is home to roughly 511,000 illegal immigrants.

Report: Arrests of Illegal Aliens in Boston Increase by More than 50 Percent in 2017

Deported Illegal Aliens

Arrests of illegal aliens living in the Boston, Massachusetts area have increased by more than 50 percent, a new report reveals.

According to federal data analyzed by the Boston Globe, arrests of illegal aliens in the Boston area hiked up beyond 50 percent in Fiscal Year 2017, marking a new era of strict immigration enforcement under President Trump’s agenda of economic nationalism.

Agents with the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency arrested nearly 3,000 illegal aliens in the Boston region in Fiscal Year 2017. Compare that to the 1,858 illegal aliens who were arrested the year before when former President Obama’s immigration enforcement was far more lax.

The bulk of the illegal alien arrests came from ICE’s increased enforcement that no longer only strives to deport illegal aliens who have committed crimes against American citizens.

For example, more than 1,100 of the illegal alien arrests were for foreign nationals who did not have a criminal history. The year before, only 343 illegal aliens without criminal backgrounds were arrested by ICE in the Boston area.

The ramped-up interior enforcement of immigration — wherein the Trump administration increased deportations of illegal aliens living across the U.S. by nearly 40 percent — has helped secure higher wages for America’s working and middle class.

For example, the strict immigration enforcement thus far has led to historic wage increases for American workers in the construction industry, the garment industry, for workers employed at small businesses, and black Americans.

A reduction in overall illegal and legal immigration would potentially mean even higher wages for American workers who would see less competition with cheaper, foreign workers and a less saturated labor market where there are more workers than there are U.S. jobs.

Overall, Trump’s ICE agency in the full Fiscal Year of 2017 deported 226,119 illegal aliens, including those caught at the southern border and those arrested and deported from the interior of the U.S. This is a slight decrease from the Fiscal Year 2016 deportations, when more than 240,000 illegal aliens were deported, but ICE officials say this is entirely because of the record decline in border-crossings under Trump.

ICE Unveils New Tool, Makes Sanctuary Cities Regret Ever Issuing Licenses To Illegals

The battle against illegal immigration is not over yet. But, President Trump and the GOP might score big victories in the coming weeks. We might see DACA end and a better immigration plan created.

The wall might even go up by the end of the year. But that won’t stop the many illegals currently in the country.

Needless to say, ICE has a massive job ahead of them. They have to track down and apprehend a mass amount of dangerous criminal aliens.

Illegals that keep their heads down and don’t cause problems might be safe. But there are many who commit violent crimes, DUI deaths, and even child molestation.

It’s vital that we deport these fiends. And, a new tool might give ICE a serious edge.

From Breitbart:

Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents plan to utilize license plate readers to find illegal immigrants.

Police agencies throughout the U.S. use the systems to apprehend fugitives who have escaped justice, but open borders and amnesty activists are up in arms over the increased enforcement step.

License plate scanning systems use cameras and computers to determine the name of owners of vehicles.

ICE published its intent “to award a contract to obtain query-based access to a commercially available License Plate Reader (LPR) database” on January 8.

According to The Verge, an online technology publication, “[t]he system gives the agency access to billions of license plate records and new powers of real-time location tracking…”

ICE agents would be able to query that database in two ways. A historical search would turn up every place a given license plate has been spotted in the last five years, a detailed record of the target’s movements.

That data could be used to find a given subject’s residence or even identify associates if a given car is regularly spotted in a specific parking lot.

We know in sanctuary states like California, illegals can get driver’s licenses. They most likely also have registered vehicles. ICE will be able to use this loophole against illegals, by scanning their plates.

Liberals thought that giving them these privileges would help aliens. Instead, they are signing up for their own deportations!

In the immediate future, this technology will help ICE round up even more illegals. Then a shift will happen. Illegals will be far less likely to sign up for licenses and plates.

That means they will have a harder time staying in the United States. Fewer will even want to cross the border, knowing they will get caught.

That’s a brilliant stroke of genius by ICE. We would expect nothing less from one of Trump’s agencies.

Report: California Mayor Vows to ‘Go to Jail’ to Protect ‘Sanctuary City’ Policies Amid Immigration Crackdown

The mayor of Oakland, California, is vowing to face jail time to protect illegal aliens from facing America’s immigration laws as the Trump administration plans to ramp up its enforcement of those laws, a report says.

During his campaign for president and several times since, President Donald Trump has threatened to starve so-called “sanctuary cities” of federal funding. Some reports recently claimed that the administration is set to focus on California for a new wave of raids setting the stage for more deportations of illegals.

With the pressure on sanctuary cities, especially in California, Oakland mayor Libby Schaaf is grandstanding that she would risk going to jail to oppose immigration officials from deporting illegals in her town.

In an interview with San Francisco’s CBS affiliate, Schaaf slammed Trump as the “bully in chief.”

“It is no surprise that the bully in chief is continuing to try to intimidate our most vulnerable residents,” Schaaf said. “We’re very clear that our values are to protect all of our residents regardless of where we come from. We want to protect families, not tear them apart.”

“We are exercising our legal right to be a Sanctuary City and to protect our residents,” the mayor added. “The fact that the federal government is suggesting that it is actively retaliating against jurisdictions that are exercising their right to have sanctuary policies — that is what is illegal.”

Schaaf said she is willing to go to jail to protect illegal aliens.

The Oakland City Council firmly backed the mayor, too.

Firstly, Oakland has set aside one million in tax dollars to help defend illegals who are gathered up by immigration officials. Secondly, the council voted unanimously to discontinue cooperation with ICE officials.


Leaked: Democrat Plan Creates 8 Million New Voters Overnight

Liberals are willing to do anything for a vote, and they just proved that in spades with their latest move.

It doesn’t matter how much danger they put Americans in, their thirst for power puts the safety of our neighborhoods and cities in danger.

Liberals drag down the economy with their socialist policies and their open doors immigration.

And they’re playing the long game. A couple decades will go by in the blink of an eye. It is worth the wait for liberals to control every branch of government for life.

They have already made every change they need to control America unless Trump rolls it back.

From Breitbart:

“Every year, the U.S. admits more than 1.5 million foreign nationals to the country, with the vast majority deriving from family-based chain migration, where naturalized citizens are allowed to bring their extended family members to the country.

In 2016, the legal and illegal immigrant population reached a record high of 44 million. By 2023, the Center for Immigration Studies (CIS) estimates that the legal and illegal immigrant population of the U.S. will make up nearly 15 percent of the entire U.S. population.”

James Gimpel is a political scientist at the University of Maryland, College Park. He has studied the impact of immigration on voting patterns, and has released the following findings:

Immigrants, particularly Hispanics and Asians, have policy preferences when it comes to the size and scope of government that are more closely aligned with progressives than with conservatives.

As a result, survey data show a two-to-one party identification with Democrats over Republicans.

By increasing income inequality and adding to the low-income population (e.g. immigrants and their minor children account for one-fourth of those in poverty and one-third of the uninsured) immigration likely makes all voters more supportive of redistributive policies championed by Democrats to support disadvantaged populations.

There is evidence that immigration may cause more Republican-oriented voters to move away from areas of high immigrant settlement leaving behind a more lopsided Democrat majority.

Here’s an additional perspective on this:

President Trump wants the program ended. Of course, the Democrats see potential liberal voters and want the program to continue. Some confused Republicans want the program to continue as well.

What do the American people want?

Chain migration is increasingly unpopular with the American people. As Breitbart News reported, a recent poll by Pulse Opinion Research found that nearly 60 percent of likely voters said they wanted chain migration to end.

The majority of Americans also said in the poll that they wanted to see reductions to current legal immigration levels, where the U.S. admits a little more than 1 million new legal immigrants a year.

A majority of 60 percent of likely voters said they wanted to see legal immigration cut down to 500,000 new immigrants or even less.

Only 27 percent of voters said they wanted current legal immigration levels to remain the same or be increased beyond 1 million new admissions a year.

Once again, the president’s views closely align with those of a majority of Americans. And the left still cannot figure out how he won the election.

The Democrats will have to resort to tactics such as hurling charges of racism at those who oppose chain migration. That is if their plan to use immigrants to increase their representation in elected offices is to succeed.

It’s a pitiful way to gain voters. Why? Because it implies that you cannot convince the current electorate that your party’s ideas and policies have merit. So you bring in others to swing the vote your way.

It’s a tactic Democrats are employing that involves using people for political ends. They must be called out for this.
