Is President Trump really “going to war” against California as Governor Jerry Brown claims? As Trump takes aim at illegal immigration, and AG Jeff Sessions makes moves to take the state o court for not cooperating with Federal authorities, you may be forgiven for thinking that teh Golden State is receiving more than its share of attention.
But the fact is that American citizens living in California need someone to look out for them.
Recently, they had the Oakland Mayor who informed hundreds of illegal migrants (felons no less) that ICE was due to raid…Of course, they ran or hid. Among those who escaped immigration enforcement officers were sex crime felons, violent assault felons, drug pushers and more.
And then there is the data about Californian poverty rates: The worst in the US! Is this because there is no industry in the state? Or could it be because of the rampant crime and masses of illegal immigration being allowed and encouraged by state lawmakers?
Governor Brown said:
“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.”
But perhaps a better way to look at this is not that Trump and his Administration is going to war AGAINST California, but that Trump is going to war FOR legal Californians?
As the mass exodus of middle-class folk continues from the state under pressure from crime, taxes, and oppressive regulation, perhaps it's time that the actual elected officials in the state begin looking at what they can do to protect Californians; not from Trump, but from their own deluded ideological practices?
