There is a reason that incrementalism does not work. As you inch your way toward the goal, your political opponent sees you coming. With the fight against illegal immigration, this has begun to take shape.
California is beginning to build bulwarks against the incoming Trump administration. The reason is their fear of losing as many as 1 Million illegal residents once Trump is sworn into office. The latest should have residents of L.A. County up in arms.
Los Angeles County supervisors Janice Hahn and Hilda Solis are asking their colleagues to join them in setting aside $1 million in county funds that can be used to help illegal immigrants fight deportation.
It is estimated that LA County’s illegal immigrant population is over 800,000, and the $1 million in funding would come from taxpayers’ pockets.
According to KPCC, supervisor Hahn’s spokeswoman Liz Odendahl explained that “The idea is to set up the legal fund with $1 million in the first year, then obtain matching funds from public or private donors.” The move is a preemptive one, aimed at short-circuiting President-elect Donald Trump’s pledge “to deport millions of immigrants living in the country illegally.”
This will mean that the County will use money from its citizens to defend those who have been known to break the law. Then we have an instance of absolute lunacy, where the law will be used to protect lawbreakers. And this is not all that is being done in California to prevent the federal government from upholding the law.
Breitbart News previously reported that amnesty groups in California are working to deny federal access to the database containing names of gang members in the state.
