    It's a heavyweight title match pitting the two most powerful politicians in the country against each other. Newly sworn in California Governor Gavin Newsom threw down the gauntlet during his inauguration speech, saying, "People's lives, freedom, security, the water we drink, the air we breathe – they all hang in the balance" - remarks clearly aimed at the president. He also doubled down on his immigration policies by saying that California would give "Sanctuary to all who seek it." The federal government is suing the state over its sanctuary law. Donald Trump is hitting back. Yahoo News: President Trump...
  • California Gov. Gavin Newsom seeks to add more illegal immigrants to state health care plan

    Newly sworn-in California Gov. Gavin Newsom, vowing to provide “sanctuary to all who seek it,” has proposed extending state health care coverage to more illegal immigrants living within the Golden State’s borders. Hours after assuming office, Mr. Newsom released sweeping health care proposals to raise the age limit for illegal aliens covered by Medi-Cal from 19 to 26, which would make California “the first state in the nation to cover young undocumented adults through a state Medicaid program,” according to a Monday release from the governor’s office. Mr. Newsom, who ran on a universal health care platform, also proposed expanding...

    California's new Governor, Gavin Newsome, gave notice in his inauguration speech yesterday that a bright new day was dawning for the state under his "progressive, principled leadership." Even for a liberal, Newsome's laundry list of promises leaves one gasping for air. FROM KCAL: “People’s lives, freedom, security, the water we drink, the air we breathe — they all hang in the balance,” Newsom, 51, told a crowd of hundreds packed into a tent outside the state Capitol. He says children should not be “ripped away from their parents” at the border, and they also shouldn’t be left hungry while Trump...

    Today’s Campaign Update (Because The Campaign Never Ends) All fake news, all the time. – If you still do not believe that our national media establishment is 100% in the pocket of the Democrat Party and coordinates messaging with that political party on a daily basis, consider the following story. We are now in Day 9 of a partial “government shutdown” that exists over the issue of illegal immigration. Early this week, in the midst of this “government shutdown,” a California law enforcement officer was murdered by an illegal alien who he was attempting to arrest for what would have...

    FULL TITLE: Senator who authored California’s ‘sanctuary state’ bill sends condolences to family of slain officer As Twitchy reported earlier, Cameron Gray posted a must-read thread about the number of House members from California who took to social media to demand answers about the deaths of two children in Border Patrol custody but never thought to tweet about Cpl. Ronil Singh, who was shot and killed by an illegal immigrant. Well, there was one tweet and another retweet at least. President pro tempore of the California State Senate Kevin de León, probably better known to out-of-staters as the Democrat who...

  • Portland’s next brainstorm: Cops without guns

    The tagline “keep Portland weird” never really seems to go out of style. The Oregon city’s mayor will shortly be rolling out a new program designed to expand the city’s police force. Given all the Antifa violence they’re dealing with, that sounds like a good idea. But these new officers aren’t exactly cops. They’re Public Safety Support Specialists or PS3s, and they won’t be carrying firearms or responding to emergency calls. So what exactly are they going to be doing?

    Pittsburgh Mayor Bill Peduto and local immigration advocates Wednesday called for a united effort to oppose proposed federal rules that would deny green cards to immigrants if they use Medicaid, food stamps, housing vouchers and other forms of public assistance. The mayor and others said the proposed rule change has spread fear among Pittsburgh’s legal immigrants, who are reluctant to apply for public aid programs even at the risk of losing homes and suffering health problems because they worry they will be denied visas. “What we’re talking about right now is nothing more than hatred,” Peduto said. “It’s hatred of...

    Either way, Michigan voters face a monumental decision in less than two weeks – will they defend their neighborhoods or will they allow progressive politics to sacrifice their communities on the altar of open borders? The midterms in Michigan. A choice between safety or sanctuary. Cities and counties that have had a large influx of illegal aliens, also see an increase in crimes ranging from identity theft to human trafficking. The FBI, for instance, has rated San Diego, California, which borders Mexico, as one of the 13 highest child sex trafficking areas in the nation. A joint study conducted by...

    The back seat of every Minneapolis police squad car will soon display a message in English and Spanish: You have the right to remain silent about your place of birth, immigration status and everything else. Mayor Jacob Frey has promised to keep Minneapolis safe for immigrants as federal authorities ramp up enforcement of immigration laws. After mentioning the placards in his State of the City speech in May, Frey held a news conference Wednesday to reveal them to the public. “Right now, cities have to step up and do what our federal administration and Congress won’t,” said Frey. “We will...

    Despite an Orange County judge’s ruling this week that California’s so-called sanctuary protections for immigrants who are in the country illegally are unconstitutional as they apply to charter cities, state Atty. Gen. Xavier Becerra said Friday that the state would continue to uphold its laws. Huntington Beach on Thursday became the first city to successfully challenge the California Values Act, also known as Senate Bill 54, after Orange County Superior Court Judge James Crandall affirmed that the law violates its local control as a charter city — one governed by a charter adopted by local voters. Huntington Beach City Atty....

    The sheriff of Pima County, Arizona said Wednesday on "Fox & Friends" that the rejection by county officials of a $1.4 million federal grant to strengthen border security is puzzling. The board reportedly voted to reject funding from Operation Stonegarden, a program that would bolster cooperation on border security between the federal and local government. Sheriff Mark Napier said that the same board of supervisors accepted the same grant the previous 12 years, and that the vote against it is jeopardizing public safety.

    A man accused of shooting a Colorado Springs police officer in the head in a shootout early Thursday while free on bond was known to immigration enforcement officials, yet evaded deportation despite a string of crimes, court records show. Why Karrar Al Khammasi wasn’t deported was among the questions left unanswered Friday as his bond was revoked. Cem Duzel, the officer he is accused of shooting, remained hospitalized in critical condition. The 31-year-old Iraqi immigrant appears to have lived in the Pikes Peak region for at least five years, and he had at least nine contacts with police in that...

    et me begin with an important question: are you okay with the notion that America will become (and I mean that literally) a sanctuary country in just a couple of years from now? Or, to put it simply, a country with no borders and an “allow anyone to stay” immigration policy? Let me elaborate on one of the most under looked stories of our time: as per a Washington Times report from Friday, quoting the Federation for American Immigration Reform, almost 50 percent (that would be half for millenials) of all Americans now live in a sanctuary city or a...
