Parents Of Kids Killed By Illegal Aliens Launch Ballot Initiative To End California’s Sanctuary State Status

Being a state that overwhelmingly votes Leftist, there’s a low chance that this would pass, but, then, who thought that the anti-gay marriage ballot initiative would have passed (which was, of course, thwarted by a Leftist judge)

(Sacramento Bee) The parents of two young people killed by immigrants (no, they are illegal aliens) are leading an effort to repeal California’s “sanctuary state” policy and criminalize officials who obstruct federal law.

“You’re already here illegally,” said Don Rosenberg, whose son Drew was hit on a motorcycle by an unlicensed driver who had been granted temporary immigration status to remain in the U.S. in 2010. “You already have no right to be here. Why are we bending over backwards for someone who commits more crimes on top of that?”

Senate Bill 54, which restricts the ability of local law enforcement to help the federal government enforce immigration violations, prompted the U.S. Department of Justice to sue California last month and survived an early referendum attempt that failed to qualify.

Now a group called Fight Sanctuary State is taking another shot at the law and announcing a new ballot measure initiative Wednesday to delete sections of the government code related to SB 54 and another law that penalizes employers who give federal immigration authorities access to employee records or buildings without a warrant.

It would mostly likely take till 2020 to make it onto the ballot. This initiative would require state and local police to notify federal authorities when an illegal alien is going to be released. And

The measure would also impose criminal penalties and fines on government officials who obstruct federal immigration enforcement, prohibit the Department of Motor Vehicles from issuing licenses for undocumented immigrants and require voters to provide proof of citizenship to register.

They aren’t playing around. Of course, the top Dems aren’t happy

Sen. Kevin de León, D-Los Angeles, on his way to a West Covina City Council meeting to defend the bill he authored, said the restrictions on rights of undocumented immigrants under the initiative suggests the “ghosts of Prop 187 are being brought back to life.” The 1994 initiative, which was overturned by the courts, eliminated public services for undocumented immigrants.

The part de Leon is probably the most unhappy about would be the stopping of driver’s licenses, which give illegals a sense of legalization, and proof of citizenship to register to vote.

Meanwhile, the city of Aliso Viejo voted to join Trump’s lawsuit against California on it being a sanctuary state.

    Apprehensions at the southern border have been flat since 2011 at 25% of the peak in the early 2000s. There has been a steady drop since about 2000.

    So why is illegal immigration the focus of white nationalist “president” sWamp? Politics!! Keeping his 30% amped!

    Rape! Drugs! Caravans of illegals! Build a wall! Send in the troops! National emergency!

    sWamp needs a war, and this is it.

    Gun homicides (non-suicide) have plummeted since 1993.

    So why is gun control the focus of liberal lunatics? Politics!! Keeping their 20% amped!

    School shootings! Assault rifles! High Capacity Magazines! Gun Epidemic! F**k the Constitution, it’s a National emergency!

    The Left needs something to distract from the abject failure of their social engineering ideas and guns is it.

    • Jeffery says:

      Your analogy, while entertaining, is flawed.

      Mass shootings have increased during that same time, hence the interest in limiting assault weapons. Most other homicides, which have decreased in the past few decades, are committed with handguns.

    Homicides using firearms have decreased about 50% since 1993. Thanks you, NRA. If they’re going to take the heat for mass shootings, they have to be praised for the decrease overall. Can’t have it both ways.
