Michelle Malkin: Jerry Brown Gave Away the Store

Michelle Malkin: Jerry Brown Gave Away the Store

“As if the nail had not been driven into California’s coffin enough, along come a raft of new open-borders goodies for illegal aliens. Gov. Jerry Brown has now sanctioned the practice of law by law-breakers. He also signed measures that will make it even harder to detain illegal alien criminals, further endangering the law-abiding populace (what’s left of it, anyway). And it will now be a crime for law-abiding employers to tell suspected illegal alien employees that they will report their status to federal authorities (those who are left who might actually do something about it, anyway),” says Michelle Malkin.

Selective Shutdown – Illegal Immigrants Allowed to Set Up Rally on Closed Mall

“The Park Service will reportedly allow a pro-[amnesty]rally to occur on the National Mall even though the site is technically closed due to the partial government shutdown,” The Blaze reported.

“Organizers for the event, titled ‘Camino Americano: March for Immigration Reform,’ set up a stage and equipment for the Tuesday rally as the public was kept out. A spokesperson for the event told the Washington Examiner that the Park Service has granted them permission to utilize the site.”

California Agribusiness Lobby Pushes Amnesty on GOP

“The monuments and memorials in Washington are closed, due to the government shutdown. But Tuesday afternoon the National Mall will be the site for a march for immigration reform. Organizers say it’s they’ll have access to the mall because this is First Amendment issue. They promise “tens of thousands” will rally to push the House to follow the Senate’s lead and pass comprehensive immigration reform. It’s the same message delivered recently by California growers,” says KPCC raido.

“In between last week’s votes to delay parts of the Affordable Care Act and fund pieces of the federal government, California’s Republican House members met with organizations representing the state’s agriculture industry.”

    The Problem with Michelle Malkin is she complains about the Democrats but not one word of her’s against Ted Cruz H1b Vista schemes that will bring in about 300,000 workers a year into the US. Also, Mr Cruz doesn’t want a cap on legal immigration from Mexico, China or India. Granted, he isn’t as bad as Democrats and some Republicans because his based changed his mind against legalizing folks but according to his interview with the New York Times he wants to legalized folks without citizenship when the border is more secured. Malkin represents the right that always complains but elects politicians that don’t create a good e-veirfy system to punished companies. Cruz comes from Texas, Texas can do that. In fact Arizona has more companies under e-verify than Texas. Also, Ms Malkin doesn’t care if a lot of people come as H1b Vistas into the US.

      I don’t disagree. Unfortunately we’re always stuck between the lesser of two evils with these two parties.

    What does the First Amendment have to do with holding a pro amnesty rally on the National Mall. If it’s closed to the public, then it’s closed to you also. You do not need to be on government property to express your first amendment rights. I really really doubt a tea party rally would get the same consideration. It should be one standard for all. This is just more pandering to illegals and how their “rights” trump those of American citizens.

    As for California, the census bureau has produced a recent study that calculates poverty as income earned against cost of living. in other words, reality. And the “poverty stricken” states like Mississippi actually come out ahead of California, which had the highest number in true poverty. Because the costs of so many things are cheaper in Mississippi. Like housing. Continuing population growth in California, driven by immigration, has produced sky high housing prices. Neil Diamond once sang about L. A. that “palm trees grow and rents are low”. Not any more.
