FOX: “Reform California” chairman Carl DeMaio on Saturday criticized California Gov. Gavin Newsom’s signing of a bill that allows some illegal immigrants to serve on county central committees — one of a number of bills signed to benefit those who entered the country illegally.
“These bills are not just symbolic wokeness, this is a fundamental redefinition of who gets to be elected to office in California, and they’re starting small but this is absolutely the first step,” DeMaio told Fox News.
The bill, was one of a number of bills that Newsom’s office described as “expanding the state’s humane immigration policies by protections and support for immigrants” and included a law ending the use of “alien” to describe non-citizens.
Included was a bill that amends California election code to allow what Newsom’s office described as “aspiring citizens” to be appointed and elected members in a county central committee. Proponents have specifically mentioned “DREAMers” or recipients of Deferred Action for Childhood Arrival (DACA) — which protected illegal immigrants who came to the U.S. as children from deportation. more here
