Lloyd Billingsley, Gov. Newsom ramps up benefits for California’s imported electorate.
Last Friday, California Governor Gavin Newsom signed Assembly Bill 1876, which removes the requirement for a tax filer to have at least one child under the age of six to qualify for California’s earned income tax credit.
“Expanding the CalEITC,” Newsom said in his signing message, “will provide a critical boost to undocumented and mixed-status families across the state, stimulate the economy and make us all stronger in the face of economic uncertainty.” This was only California’s latest benefit for false-documented foreign nationals illegally present in the United States.
Newsom’s first budget set aside $98 million for illegals’ health care, and as the Sacramento Bee noted, made California “the first state to allow undocumented adults to sign up for state-funded health coverage.” Countless legal immigrants and legitimate citizens are not eligible for state-funded health care, and they also come up short in other ways.
California’s false-documented illegals get in-state tuition at state universities. University of California president Janet Napolitano defied the 1996 California Civil Rights Initiative, Proposition 209, to admit students on the base of ethnicity. The former Arizona governor and Homeland Security boss also made the University of California a sanctuary system, founded the UC Center for Undocumented Student Legal Services, and granted illegals an aid package of $25.2 million.
Legitimate citizens and legal immigrants did not get an aid package, and the University of California does not pay their legal bills. Napolitano also ruled that UC campus police would not cooperate with federal authorities. That mirrors the statewide policy of giving sanctuary to false-documented foreign nationals illegally present in California.
Senate Bill 54, the “California Values Act,” was authored by Senate boss Kevin de Leon, who claims his father was a Chinese cook born in Guatemala, and that he grew up on both sides of the border. De Leon authored the bill because half his family would be eligible for deportation, and despite claims to the contrary, his sanctuary law protects criminals.
If criminal illegals had been handed to federal authorities for deportation, Kate Steinle would be alive today. So would California police officers Ronil Singh, Brian Ishmael, Danny Oliver, Michael Davis and many others. As it happens, sanctuary laws are hardly the only special privilege false-documented illegals enjoy in California.
When illegals get driver’s licenses, the California Department of Motor Vehicles automatically registers them to vote. By 2018, the “motor voter” program added one million “new” voters, but secretary of state Alex Padilla isn’t saying how many actually voted. After the 2016 election, Padilla refused to cooperate with a federal probe of voter fraud, so one million is a ballpark figure for 2018, with many more illegals set to vote in November.
In May, Newsom issued an executive order to “send vote-by-mail ballots for the November 3, 2020 General Election to all registered voters.” Those will include those illegals automatically registered to vote by the DMV, and those who voted illegally long before. As a State Department investigation confirms, false-documented illegals have been voting in local, state and federal elections for decades.
As convention wisdom has it, nearly three million illegals live in California, but the true figure is doubtless much higher. Last year, the Trump administration moved to deny green cards to those who have used public assistance. In a legal challenge to the measure, California attorney general Xavier Becerra tipped his hand that 10 million “immigrants” live in the state.
Legal immigrants must certify that they will not become a public charge, so Becerra, once on Hillary Clinton’s short list as a running mate, seeks yet another privilege for foreign nationals illegally present in the United States. Democrats have made illegals a privileged, protected class and in return the illegals vote for Democrats. That’s a great deal for Democrats and illegals, and a bad deal for legitimate citizens and legal immigrants. As they know, it is illegal for non-citizens to vote in American elections.
With a crucial presidential election just around the corner, Gavin Newsom adds a tax break to the illegals’ roster of benefits. The governor, a crony of Jerry Brown and a one-time nephew of Nancy Pelosi, has also been busy on other fronts.
On September 11, Newsom signed Senate Bill 195, by San Francisco Democrat Scott Weiner,
Which says that non-forcible sodomy, oral copulation, and sexual penetration with a minor do not require mandatory sex offender registration unless there is a ten-year gap between the minor and the other person. The measure outraged even leftist Democrats such as San Diego assemblywoman Lorena Gonzalez.
“I cannot in my mind as a mother understand how sex between a 24-year-old and a 14-year-old could ever be consensual, how it could ever not be a registrable offense,” Gonzalez told reporters. “We should never give up on this idea that children should be in no way subject to a predator.”
Democrats have already made California safe for millions of false-documented illegals, their imported electorate. So for a trendy progressive like Gavin Newsom, expanding protections for pedophiles and predators is hardly a problem.
