California has been in an open rebellion against President Trump and conservatives for some time, but now, their beef with federal immigration enforcement belies a new front in the state’s war against America.
Donald Trump’s rise to power came as the businessman-turned-politician promised the American people that he would, as President, instruct federal officials to enforce the rule of law as it pertains to immigration in our great nation. This piece of Trump’s “Contract With America” was high on the President’s list of priorities as he began work in the Oval Office in January, but Trump has been stymied again and again by a liberal “resistance” that is creeping well into republican circles just 6 months in to his first term.
Now, as California has demonstrated their total hatred of all things conservative, including the President, the state has been completely defiant when it comes to pushing forward the American voters’ Trump-forward agenda. California has openly called for secession from the nation to be a ballot issue in 2018, but, in the meantime, the liberal stronghold is doing everything they can to ruin the President’s well laid plans.
“California’s top labor law enforcer wants federal immigration agents to stay away from offices where state investigators weigh claims about underpaid employees and workplace retaliation.
“Labor Commissioner Julie Su last month directed her staff to turn away Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents unless the federal officers have warrants.
“Her directive followed three instances over the past 10 months in which immigration agents sought information about California workers who had filed claims against employers. In two cases, immigration agents attempted to attend hearings where investigators discuss claims with workers and their employers, Su said. In all three cases, the agents left when they were asked, she said.
“Su, the state’s labor commissioner since 2011, did not know how the immigration agents learned about the appointments.
“Those contacts with immigration officers dovetail with a surge in complaints from California workers about employers threatening to have them deported. Last year, Su’s office in the Department of Industrial Relations investigated 14 complaints from workers who claimed their employers threatened them with immigration enforcement.“So far this year, the department has opened 58 immigration-based retaliation cases, Su said.”
