But here in California, the reckless, feckless, dangerous Democrats are busy readying the ramparts to protect the illegal aliens from the incoming Trump administration. This is truly laughable. They are indeed the ghosts of Confederates’ past. Democratic elites have banned firearms, and reduced the powers of the National Guard and local law enforcement to do their jobs. What are they going to do if Trump directs the National Guard to key cities, deposing rogue city councilmembers to enforce federal immigration laws?
That will be a sight to see, since the Bay Area snobs and the Los Angeles Anti-Social In-Justice Warriors only have signs, banners, and cups of Starbucks. Not much for fighting a rebellion! Has anyone seen Illegal Immigration’s Patron Saint Ricardo Lara? He boasted that he would fight in the streets before allowing one illegal to be removed. He could use a workout before working out such a fantasy. We the People (and Rising!) in California cannot wait for Trump to “flip the switch” (per Texas Congressman John Culberson), which will cut of all federal funding to cities which protect illegals.
Of course, California’s corrupt political class refuses to learn their lesson. Like petulant children threatening their parents with water guns, they are defying federal authorities and shoring meager funding to protect their voting base. Yes indeed, illegal aliens are registering to vote, especially now that California residents can register to vote online or receive automatic registration with a new driver’s license!
Then there’s this development: locally elected officials are scrambling to add their cities to the “sanctuary city” list. They believe strength in numbers will work against the Trump Administration’s immigration enforcement. We the People Rising received a tip that Rialto, California was holding a special “Sanctuary City Special Committee” on Friday, December 30: just before the New Year, during a date and time when the vast majority of citizens would have left the area. We arrived at city hall, and found newly-elected councilman Rafael Trujillo (see photo above), the puppet of amnesty-pandering Congresswoman Norma Torres. He was apparently waiting for the constituents he intended to plot with. He denied any knowledge about a meeting.
