“It will put a large kink in Trump’s perverse and inhumane
proposer California State Senate Leader Kevin de Leon (D)
I know of no other way to say it except to just take a deep breath
and let it be known that by his signing the abomination known as
SB-54...dubbed the 'California Values Act'...California's Gov. Jerry
Brown has proven himself to be not only an anti-American bleeding
heart liberal, but one who poses a danger not only to Californians
but to all Americans whose lives he has now put in danger. How
so...because this bill makes the entirety of California a 'sanctuary
state' which not only sets a dangerous precedent but actually gives
illegals...gives criminals...rights, freedoms, and protections, once
afforded to American citizens alone.
And with it being a direct slap in the face to President Trump,
Brown happily signed a bill into law that limits who California's state
and local law enforcement agencies can hold, question, and transfer
at the request of federal immigration authorities...and he did so on
the very day President Trump had set as the deadline for those
illegals currently protected under Obama's DACA program to request a
two-year extension before the program is finally and rightfully
Saying that SB-54 will ensure that “hardworking people who
contribute to our state are respected,”
Brown forgets that more
importantly is that 'We the People' now need laws to protect us from the likes of
him and from those he is trying to protect.
Bill SB-54...whose predecessor was the 'California Trust Act' which
weakened the impact of in-place federal policy on immigrant communities and
included in it how long illegals could be held by immigration
officials...was proposed by Latino Democrat and California Senate
leader Kevin de León, and it directly contradicts already on the
books federal laws by its baring California law enforcement officers
from arresting individuals based upon civil immigration warrants;
bars officers from asking about a person’s immigration status; and
bars them from participating in any joint task force with federal
officials for the purpose of enforcing immigration laws.
SB-54 prohibits local law enforcement officers from asking about a
person's immigration status in the course of routine interactions;
prohibits said officers from complying with ICE detainer requests;
and also prevents local jails from contracting with the federal
government to house their detainees and hold immigrants for any
reason if they are cleared for release based upon the adjudication of
their state criminal cases.
In other words...screw federal U.S. immigration laws for to those
like Gov. Jerry Brown and Sen.Kevin de Leon the 'supposed' rights of
the rights of we law-abiding American citizens...no matter that
illegal immigration in and of itself is indeed directly responsible for the
increase in the overall numbers of violent crime not just in
California but nationwide.
Simply put, while SB-54, which goes into effect on January 1, 2018,
does not actually stop ICE or Homeland Security from enforcing
federal immigration laws in California, it does ensure that
California will not use its own law enforcement resources to help in
those above stated actions. And it does so while at the same time creating
protections for illegals already living in California by setting into
place immigration 'safe zones' around schools, health facilities that
offer physical and/or mental health and wellness services, public
libraries, legal aid and social services organizations, and

And in his claiming that SB-54 is a "balanced measure bill"
that "will protect
public safety while bringing a measure of comfort to those families
who are now living in fear every day,"
Jerry Brown proves just how really
delusional he is as this bill puts Californians in danger
by allowing violent criminals to avoid deportation while at the same
time jeopardizing the state's much needed billions in federal
funding. And Brown signed this bill even after President Trump
publicly put cities and counties on notice that they will lose
federal funding if local law enforcement does not cooperate with
immigration agents. And with California being home to at least 35
sanctuary cities...including San Francisco, Los Angeles, and
Oakland...that means 35 cities...with some being highly populated cities...could and most likely will go broke thanks
to this what is truly a one-sided law.
And if losing funding wasn't bad enough get this, SB-54 requires
prisons to have written consent from inmates...from
criminals...before they allow federal immigration agents to interview
them...in other words 'make nice' to felons including those the likes
of five times previously deported illegal alien Juan Francisco Lopez-Sanchez, the very man who in cold-blood
murdered Kate Steinle.
In fact, according to Devin
O’Malley, a spokesman for the Department of Justice, “The
state of California has now codified a commitment to returning
criminal aliens back onto our streets, which undermines public
safety, national security, and law enforcement.”
And how right
he is for this now law places too many restrictions on law
enforcement’s ability to "communicate"
federal counterparts about releasing or not releasing criminals from
jail...that is except if said criminal has been convicted of one of
about 800 mostly felony and misdemeanor crimes. And law enforcement officers will
also specifically be barred from transferring illegal criminals to federal
authorities if said criminals 'so-called' rap sheet includes only
while not saying what those "minor
"It won't stop ICE from trolling our streets,"
angrily whined bill sponsor California Senate leader Kevin de Leon
(D) who wanted no concessions made to his original proposal...as if all stated above are really concessions.
And no matter how often Gov. Jerry Brown squawks that his signing SB-54
in no way prevents ICE or Homeland Security from actually
in California, the truth is that this law actually lays out the welcome mat for any and all illegals both currently
in our country and those planning on illegally entering here to just hightail it to California knowing they will not only get a
conglomerate of the requisite 'free stuff'...including driver's
licenses and the right to vote...but that they will be protected by
law no matter how many times or to what degree they act...to put it
Heaven help law-abiding Californians for the police will no longer
be able to.
'No longer be able to' as buried within SB-54 are words to the affect
that California's attorney general’s office will have to publish
guidelines and training recommendations in order to (forcibly) limit
immigration agents access to personal information, that all law
enforcement agencies will have to send the office annual reports
both on the illegals they do transfer to immigration authorities, and
to the types and frequency of arrests and said transfers.
And to make SB-54 all the more grievous, Gov. Brown signed with it an additional ten
immigration-related bills...including a bill limiting the
growth of detention centers by preventing cities and other local
California governments from entering into either new contracts or
renewing and/or modifying any existing contracts with private companies
whose business with the feds is to hold immigrants. Also signed was a
bill that expanded education services for illegals while at the same
time extending tenant and workplace protections for those Brown loves
to call "undocumented persons"...persons
who in reality we know are illegal aliens...criminals...who
came into our country by knowingly and willingly breaking our laws.
So what can the few duly-elected Republican officials in
California do now that this bill has become law...little to nothing
it seems. In fact, Atty. Gen. Jeff Sessions...who called SB-54
is already doing legal battle with some
sanctuary cities... including San Francisco...over the
administration's move to withhold Justice Department grant funds to
"discourage sanctuary city policies." And
least we forget that
on the very day California lawmakers
voted to pass SB-54, activist U.S. District Court Judge Harry Leinenweber in Chicago blocked
And with State Senate leader Kevin de León now saying that state
leaders are "prepared to defend it"
in court no
matter that some are trying to get federal officials to block the law
from being implemented, the chances of SB-54 not being implemented are
slim as the 10th Amendment and past court rulings in previous and somewhat
similar cases found that the federal government cannot "compel"
local authorities to enforce federal laws.
And this means that the uber liberal Democrats in the California
legislature; those who elected them to office; and the vile, way
overpaid, no-talent, big mouth Hollywood sorts; have succeeded in
commandeering once great California and turning it into a socialist's
free-for-all, do whatever you want, haven for the criminal sorts. But
then again this is the same state that under the same governor
recently reduced the penalty from a felony to a misdemeanor for someone who
knowingly does not tell their partner...whether they be gay or
straight...that he or she is infected with the AIDS virus. Nice
So with SB-54 now being law, the bottom
line is that American families who have suffered never ending
heartbreak and harm at the hands of illegal criminals will now be
pushed aside by corrupt California politicians who would rather
protect the more than 2.3 million illegals living in their state than
seek justice for innocent lives lost.
And what most forget is that as this sanctuary state scenario
progresses from bad to worse...as all-out socialism overtakes the
state...it will lead into a situation known as 'diminishing returns'
where eventually California's economy collapses as the state becomes
bankrupt under the weight of having to support the influx of
illegals with their hands out flocking to their state. And with
government funds rightfully being withheld, raising taxes even higher
than they already are becomes the only viable option available, but
with taxes being almost unaffordable for most as it is, the exodus
from California will turn the state into a true socialistic criminal
hub with mob mentality becoming the rule of law. And dare we forget
that socialism only works until you run out of other people's
money...meaning California is indeed on the path towards total
bankruptcy and economic collapse.
And the bottom line in all this is that what the 'big one' has not
yet done to California to date, Gov. Jerry Brown's signing of SB-54 will surely do. Adios California...bye-bye LaLafornia...you liberals truly did bring this
nightmare upon yourselves.
