Daily Wire: California police arrested 14 protesters after they chained themselves to the fence of Gov. Gavin Newsom’s home calling for him to release “all” prisoners.
Dozens of protesters gathered outside of Newsom’s property in Fair Oaks on Monday morning to push for the mass release of inmates because of the pandemic, as well as to stop state law enforcement from working with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, according to The Sacramento Bee.
“Gov. Newsom, you are responsible for the COVID crisis that’s happening in prisons and jails,” one demonstrator said. “You must act now to save lives.”
A group of protesters carrying a sign that read “Your actions save lives. Free them all” chained themselves together with others chained to Newsom’s gate. Police arrested and charged those chained together with trespass, unlawful assembly, and failure to disperse after a warning.
Newsom reacted to the protest outside his home in a press conference later in the day. more
