California Senate leader Kevin de León announces he will challenge Sen. Dianne Feinstein

California Senate leader Kevin de León on Sunday launched an audacious bid to challenge fellow Democrat Dianne Feinstein for her U.S. Senate seat, saying he was running to fight President Trump’s agenda and that the state has changed greatly during the quarter of a century Feinstein has been in office.
“We’re overdue for a real debate on the issues, priorities and leadership voters want from their senator,” De León said in an interview. “I think California needs a senator not just fully resistant to Trump’s presidency, but who understands the issues most Californians face every day.”
De León announced his bid in an email to supporters and a video, where he painted a dire picture.
“We now stand at the front lines of a historic struggle for the very soul of America, against a president without one. Every day, his administration wages war on our people and our progress. He disregards our voices. Demonizes our diversity. Attacks our civil rights, our clean air, our health access and our public safety,” he said in an email to supporters. “We can lead the fight against his administration, but only if we jump into the arena together.”
De León said he will focus on improving quality of life, increasing educational opportunities, cleaning the environment and creating universal healthcare.
“I am running for the U.S. Senate because you deserve a seat at the table...,” he said. “To achieve these goals, expand the California dream, and take the fight to Trump from California to Washington, D.C., I commit to working tirelessly to earn your vote here at home, and once elected, to do my part to work even harder to reunite this nation with a progressive agenda.”

The announcement sets the stage for a bitter intraparty battle next year, pitting Feinstein, who epitomizes the Democratic old guard, against a member of the party’s ambitious younger generation seeking to climb the political ladder. It also presages a costly and divisive fight at a time many California Democrats argue their energy and dollars would be better spent on several congressional races in the state that could determine who controls Congress.
Bill Carrick, Feinstein’s longtime political advisor, described De León’s bid as “wasting money and energy on what will turn out to be a rather difficult campaign for Sen. De León.… He’s a virtual unknown. He’s a termed-out politician looking for a gig.”
Carrick predicted Feinstein would do “very, very well” in the contest, noting her strength with female voters, her base in Northern California and her history of winning Los Angeles County.
“If he sees an opening, it’s a mirage,” Carrick said of De León.
Feinstein, who toured fire damage in Northern California with Gov. Jerry Brown and fellow Sen. Kamala Harris over the weekend, did not immediately comment about the challenge.
Earlier, Feinstein seemed unfazed about the prospect in an interview with The Times.
“I am what I am; I’m pretty well known and people, I assume, will come after me any way they can. That’s up to them,” Feinstein said. “If that’s of any value to people I’ll win, if it’s not I won’t.”
She made the remarks as rumors about De León challenging Feinstein — who, at 84, is the oldest member of the Senate — crescendoed.
Unlike previous years, she has faced heated criticism of late from liberal critics who have said her measured approach is no longer representative of a state that has become home to “the resistance” to President Trump and his policies. Feinstein also drew rebukes from members of her party when she called for “patience” with Trump this summer, saying he could develop into a good president.
De León faces significant challenges in his effort to unseat Feinstein. She is a well-respected party elder who is among the most powerful Democratic forces in the state and the nation. When then-Sens. Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton sought a detente during the 2008 election, it was hosted in her living room. She is also among the wealthiest members of Congress and could easily self-fund a campaign if she needed to. And since she was first elected to the chamber in 1992, she has earned seniority and bipartisan trust in a chamber where both are critical, especially for members of the party out of power.
De León said he is used to taking on tough battles.
“We’re taking on the establishment, there is no doubt,” he said. “But I’ve taken on the establishment all my life and I’ve been told to wait my turn.… Now is the time for change and I look forward to having this debate of ideas, of vision for the state.”
Still, he seemed cognizant that he must tread carefully. When asked about policy differences, he said he wanted to be “very respectful” toward Feinstein, before pointing to the use of the military overseas.
“Sen. Feinstein is an aggressive hawk on foreign policy matters and military intervention and a conservative incrementalist on domestic issues,” he said, adding that he would take the opposite approach.
The biggest endorsement De León received following his announcement was from Democracy for America, the progressive political action committee formed by former Vermont Gov. Howard Dean in 2004. He was also backed by Assembly members Lorena Gonzalez Fletcher of San Diego and Kevin McCarty of Sacramento, and former state Sen. Dean Florez.
The Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee announced on Sunday that it was backing Feinstein, not surprising since the group supports incumbents. She received several high-profile endorsements when she kicked off her reelection bid last week.
Political strategists say that although she enjoys institutional advantages, she can’t take for granted that this may be her toughest race since 1994, at a time when segments of the Democratic electorate are agitating for change and grossly dissatisfied with the status quo. Making her case to younger voters who are unfamiliar with her record as well as the most liberal wing of the party that is hungry for a flame-throwing critic of Trump will be key.
“It will be Dianne Feinstein’s job to reassure voters who are concerned about that that she is very much in tune with current issues and the current concerns of California,” said Darry Sragow, a veteran Democratic consultant who ran her unsuccessful 1990 campaign for governor. He added this was particularly true for younger voters. “The oldest of voters under 30, they would have been five when she was first elected [to the Senate]. They were watching ‘Sesame Street,’ not ‘Meet the Press.’ She has her work cut out for her.”
Among De León’s greatest challenges is likely to be fundraising. As a state party leader, he has cultivated relationships with some of the most prominent donors in the state, but some might be wary of challenging a sitting senator. De León lacks a statewide donor base. And the roughly $3 million he has parked in state accounts can’t legally be transferred to a federal race.
Other competitors may get in the ring, notably billionaire environmental activist Tom Steyer, who said Sunday he is considering a run. Feinstein is also being challenged by attorney Pat Harris, who announced a long-shot bid in August on a platform that includes support for single-payer healthcare and a pledge that he will only take campaign contributions from individual donors.
De León’s greatest strength could be his life story, which may appeal to voters hungry for change, noted Dan Schnur, a political communications professor at USC.
“It would be an uphill fight for any challenger, but if anybody could pull it off, it would be someone with a personal and political biography like Kevin de León,” he said.
The child of an immigrant single mother, De León, 50, spent much of his childhood trekking from his humble home in the Logan Heights neighborhood of San Diego to the city’s wealthier enclaves, where his mother worked as a house cleaner.
His upbringing would prove influential in shaping the political career that was to come.
He worked on campaigns and for labor unions, and won a state Assembly seat in 2006. In 2010, he moved to the Senate and was elected leader of that chamber in 2014 — the first Latino to hold that position in more than a century.
In the state Capitol, he has embraced high-profile legislative lifts, pushing state-sponsored retirement plans for low-income workers and background checks for ammunition purchases.

He has been a central figure in California’s efforts to combat climate change, including the setting of aggressive targets to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and extending the state’s landmark cap-and-trade program.
But his environmental advocacy has also led to high-profile setbacks. A 2015 proposal to slash petroleum use in the state by 50% by 2030 collapsed, and this year, his bill to phase out all fossil-fuel use by 2045 to generate energy sputtered in the legislative session’s final days.
He also has eagerly embraced positioning California as the heart of the “resistance” against Trump and the federal government.
That posture was most evident in his signature legislation of the year, the “sanctuary state” measure, which limits state and local law enforcement’s cooperation with federal immigration officials.

Sanctuary Cities Allowed Criminal Alien to Remain in U.S., Murder Kansas Deputy

An illegal alien who was drunk driving has pleaded guilty to killing a Kansas deputy sheriff after causing a deadly car crash last year. Sanctuary city policies in two jurisdictions allowed the previously convicted drunk driver to remain in the U.S. leading to the murder of the deputy.

Adrian Espinosa-Flores, a 39-year-old illegal alien, pleaded guilty to reckless second-degree murder charges in Johnson County, Kansas after crashing his vehicle into Master Deputy Brandon Collins, killing him, as Kansas City Star reported.
On Sept. 11, 2016, Collins had pulled a vehicle over on U.S. 69. Collins’ patrol car was parked when Espinosa-Flores recklessly drove into the sheriff deputy’s vehicle, crashing it into the SUV that had been pulled over.
Collins was killed at the scene of the accident. When the illegal alien was taken into custody, it was discovered that he had been driving despite being more than twice over the blood-alcohol legal limit. The illegal alien admitted to police after being taken into custody that he had been drinking that night.
The illegal alien’s sentencing hearing will take place next year. Should Espinosa-Flores be released from prison at any time, he will be deported back to his native country.
Espinosa-Flores managed to stay in the United States following a previous DUI conviction after California officials refused to notify U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officials of the illegal alien’s crime, Breitbart Texas’ Bob Price reported in September 2016.
Two U.S. Senators wrote to then-DHS Secretary Jeh Johnson, demanding an investigation into the failure of Los Angeles County to report the conviction to ICE.
“It appears that Flores was able to evade removal by taking advantage of at least one sanctuary jurisdiction. As a result, a law enforcement officer was killed, allegedly by Flores while again driving under the influence,” Senator’s Charles Grassley (R-IA) and Andy Alcock (R-KS) wrote.
The Overland-Park, Kansas Police Department arrested the illegal alien in 2013 for driving without a license. That department also failed to notify ICE officials.
“ICE was not notified by authorities in California or Kansas of either arrest,” ICE spokesman Shawn Neudauer wrote in his email response to an AP inquiry.
“It seems Deputy Collins died at the hands of someone who broke our laws and should not have been allowed to remain in the United States following his multiple interactions with law enforcement,” the two senators concluded.

"La Voz de Aztlan has produced a video in honor of the millions of babies that have been born as US citizens to Mexican undocumented parents. These babies are destined to transform America. The nativist CNN reporter Lou Dobbs estimates that there are over 200,000 (dated) "Anchor Babies" born every year whereas George Putnam, a radio reporter, says the figure is closer to 300,000 (dated) . La Voz de Aztlan believes that the number is aproximately 500,000 (dated)  "Anchor Babies" born every year."

In the state of California, of which Los Angeles is a large part, most payouts to illegals go first to educate them, and then to jail them after they commit crimes, and then to pay for their medical care as they clog up emergency rooms and help themselves to Medi-Cal benefits from funds they never paid into.  Welfare itself rates a distant fourth.  


Literally, LA RAZA DEM Gov Jerry Brown headed down to the open border with NARCOMEX to meet the dictator of Mexico and proclaimed “California is Mexico’s second home!”

Gov. Jerry Brown, on a trip to Mexico, seeks to position California as a more welcoming place for immigrants... $35 BILLION PER YEAR IN WELFARE NOT WELCOMING ENOUGH?!?

We’ve got an even more ominous enemy within our borders that promotes “Reconquista of Aztlan” or the reconquest of California, Arizona, New Mexico and Texas into the country of Mexico…. AND IT IS THE DEMOCRAT PARTY!

Mexicans cheat, distribute drugs, lie, forge documents, steal and kill as if it’s a normal way of life. For them, it is. Mexico’s civilization stands diametrically opposed to America’s culture.

The legal age of sexual consent in Mexico is 12 years old. Sex with children at this age and younger is socially acceptable in Mexico. For example: A Mexican Lopez-Mendez pleaded guilty to sexual assault on a 10 year old girl in West Virginia.


Natalio Vitervo-Vasquez was deported twice but returned to provide “cheap” labor. He can’t read or write and raped his 10-year-old daughter.

“Prosecutors say the girl, who was 11-years-old at the time, went to a medical center where it was determined she was pregnant. Officials say she would have conceived the child at ten years of age.”

Busted: Border Patrol Arrests DACA Recipients For Trying To Smuggle Illegals Across The Border

Busted: Border Patrol Arrests DACA Recipients For Trying To Smuggle Illegals Across The Border
Congress has been debating, among other things, the Obama-era Deferred Action For Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program and what to do with its 800,000 recipients who benefit from this constitutionally questionable executive action. The executive order issued by Obama shielded illegal aliens from deportation as long as they meet the criteria (i.e. no criminal record) and paid the $495 in application fees. DACA status had to be rented every two years. If accepted, DACA recipients had access to work permits. The program applied to illegal aliens that entered the U.S. as minors. What made immigration activists so jumpy is that these applicants gave very sensitive information about themselves and their whereabouts. They also had to admit they’re here illegally. The Daily Beast’s Betsy Woodruff reported on this back in September:
In deportation proceedings, the government must prove that the person they want deported is in the U.S. illegally. That can sometimes be tough. DACA recipients – nearly 800,000 of them – gave the Department of Homeland Security information proving they are undocumented so they could get relief from the threat of deportation. They also gave the government information about where they live, work, and go to school.  As soon as Donald Trump was elected, immigrants’ rights activists started asking what his administration would do with that information.
In a memo, the Department of Homeland Security answered this question. And its statement – full of wordy legalese – made clear that Immigration and Customs Enforcement officers will be able to use DACA recipients’ personal information to deport them.
“Information provided to USCIS in DACA requests will not be proactively provided to ICE and CBP for the purpose of immigration enforcement proceedings, unless the requestor meets the criteria for the issuance of a Notice To Appear or a referral to ICE under the criteria set forth in USCIS’ Notice to Appear guidance,” said the statement.
In other words, USCIS (United States Citizenship and Immigration Services, the agency which handles DACA) won’t proactively give immigration enforcement officers a list with the names and addresses of all DACA recipients. But if ICE officers ask for it, the agency will provide it.
The Trump administration signaled last month that they wouldn’t defend the law, as they didn’t see how they could legally. Democrats and members of the media have admitted that DACA is legally questionable, especially concerning separation of powers. Ever since it was enacted, the GOP has rightfully criticized DACA as executive overreach. Around a dozen Republican state attorneys general threatened to sue the Trump administration if they settle the DACA issue. The result was ending of the program with a six-month enforcement delay to afford Congress time to pass DACA-like legislation. It’s the only way to remove the constitutional questions surrounding the program, and there is enough GOP support to pass this. There was now a lingering question about enforcement. Senate Republicans, like Tom Cotton from Arkansas, sees this as a possible opportunity to get the RAISE Act passed, which overhauls our green card process to prioritize immigrants with high skills and adds a language provision. Any aspect of border security is anathema to Democrats. While Congress and the media debate this aspect of the immigration issue, the Border Patrol picked up two DACA recipients who were smuggling illegals across the border (Via DHS) [emphasis mine]:
LAREDO, Texas – On October 4, 2017, Border Patrol agents arrested a juvenile attempting to smuggle two illegal aliens. Agents at the Border Patrol Checkpoint on Interstate Highway 35 encountered a passenger vehicle at the primary inspection lane. The driver was questioned regarding his immigration status and was referred for further inspection after a Border Patrol canine alerted to the presence of concealed humans and/or narcotics. After further inspection, Border Patrol agents discovered two adult male subjects concealed in the trunk of the vehicle. An immigration inspection of the two subjects revealed that they were both from the country of Brazil. The driver, a juvenile, was identified as a National from the country of Guatemala and a recipient of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) in 2016. All subjects were processed for removal proceedings.
The second event took place on October 7, 2017, when Border Patrol agents arrested a juvenile attempting to smuggle one illegal alien. Agents at the Border Patrol Checkpoint on Interstate Highway 35 encountered a passenger vehicle at the primary inspection lane. After further inspection, Border Patrol agents discovered one adult male subject concealed in the trunk of the vehicle. An immigration inspection of the subject revealed that he was from the country of Mexico. driver, a juvenile, was identified as a National from the country of Mexico and a recipient of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA). All subjects were processed for removal proceedings.
As a result of their arrests, the juvenile drivers were processed for removal proceedings as a violation of the DACA conditions.
