Democrat’s Slip Up Puts His Entire Family In Danger Of Punishment By Trump

With all the controversy currently going on around sanctuary cities, California may become the nation's first sanctuary state. At least, if a certain Los Angeles legislator has his way. The Senate Leader claims that half his family could be subject to deportation if immigration laws were enforced.

Kevin de Leon testified before the Senate’s Public Safety Committee for SB54. He introduced the bill, which if passed would make the entire state of California a haven for people living in the country illegally. The bill would give local lawmakers and authorities the power to disregard federal immigration laws.

If passed, the bill will prevent local and state police from collecting information about a person's citizenship status. If an illegal immigrant is caught committing a crime, they would not be turned over to federal immigration authorities. Persons here illegally would be able to continue on with their lives, not being questioned, using fake IDs or stolen Social Security numbers. They'd be able to collect public assistance benefits, but would not be required to file or pay taxes.

According to de Leon, “Half of my family would be eligible for deportation under the executive order, because they got a false social security card, they got a false identification, they got a false driver’s license prior to us passing AB 60, they got a false green card, and anyone who has family members who are undocumented knows that almost entirely everybody has secured some sort of false identification.”

“That’s what you need to survive, to work,” he added. “They are eligible for massive deportation.”

The Senate Leader really went out on a limb to disclose this admission, and he'd better pray it doesn't snap. Many people on social media have expressed outrage that the public official not only is not only advocating a state be allowed to disregard federal laws meant to protect people, but that he himself is complicit in illegal activity.

"Taking such irresponsible action would hurt our senior citizens, children, farmers, and veterans – these are not political games, these are real lives the President is targeting”, said de Leon about President Trump in an impassioned plea.

Aristotle said, "The law is reason free from passion."

Those allowing themselves to be ruled by emotion rather than reason right now might want to remember that.
