I’m sorry this is just UNBELIEVABLE.
I don’t understand why California doesn’t just change its currency to Mexican pesos and give up that silly bear flag. With the amount of free stuff it keeps giving to illegal immigrants, it might as well throw in the whole state.
According to the Orange County Register, “the same California legislators who helped get undocumented residents drivers licenses unveiled a package Tuesday of 10 bills that would also provide them with subsidized health care and other benefits, including protection from fraud and discrimination.”
Senate President Pro Tem Kevin de León, D-Los Angeles, said the flurry of bills “unequivocally state California’s commitment to immigrants.”
What a shame the state doesn’t have the same passionate commitment to its legal American TAXPAYING citizens.
“One proposal was floated last year: a bill by Sen. Ricardo Lara, D-Bell Gardens, that would extend Medi-Cal health care coverage to all Californians, regardless of their immigration status.”
“De León could not say how the state would pay for the extended health care program.”
In addition to FREE healthcare, bills were proposed to:
• Ban businesses from discriminating against residents based on their immigration status, citizenship or language.
• Create an Office of New Americans in the governor’s office to coordinate efforts on immigration relief, naturalization services and civic engagement efforts.
• Protect Californians from immigration attorneys and consultants who demand advance payment for services and require that clients be provided a toll-free number they can call to report them to the State Bar of California in cases of fraud.
• Protect immigrant workers by limiting misuse of E-Verify and creating penalties for abuse by unscrupulous employers.
“The proposed laws are the latest aimed at protecting immigrants in California, where legislators in recent years have passed a slew of bills benefiting undocumented immigrants. The most prominent included the California Trust Act, which limits state and local cooperation with federal immigration agents, and a law that allows people living illegally in the country to apply for California driver’s licenses. Since the new driver’s license rules went into effect Jan. 2, the Department of Motor Vehicles reports issuing more than 200,000 licenses to Californians residing illegally in the state.”
Where does this end? If you continue to reward illegal behavior, it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out what you’re going to get: more of the same!
