Governor Brown And Mexico's President Nieto Make Mexifornia Official
According to California's Governor Jerry Brown, it doesn't matter if you're an illegal alien, you're more than welcome in California.
The governor, who made the remarks when introducing Mexico's Presidente Enrique Peña Nieto has already done his bit to underline that message. California is a sanctuary state, where law enforcement is forbidden to cooperate with ICE or even hold illegal aliens who have a deportation order outstanding so the feds can pick them up. California's social welfare agencies are also forbidden by law to check immigration status when handing out benefits, as are the public schools,there are no voter ID laws, the California DREAM Act extends full educational benefits, state financial aid and in state tuition rates to illegal aliens and California's Trust Act, gives driver's licenses to illegal immigrants using the easily obtained and forged Matricular Consular card as ID.
Presidente Nieto graciously acknowledged the governor's remarks by calling California "the other Mexico," and thanking Brown for his efforts and those of state officials for embracing laws that that extend state benefits to immigrants.
Well he might. Those illegal aliens represent billions of dollars repatriated back to Mexico, a major source of income. At the same time, the costs of medical care, education, use of California's infrastructure and other social welfare benefits aren't a concern for the Mexican government, because they're paid for by State and federal taxes.
Actually, I can't disagree with Nieto.California is becoming the other Mexico. According to Pew Research, Latinos make up nearly 40% of the state's population, the majority of whom are Mexican and an estimated one third of America's illegal aliens call California home...at an estimated cost per year to the state of between $19 and $22 million, depending on whose counting and how they're figuring.
Meanwhile, the state's unemployment rate continues to remain high and the flow of illegal aliens keeps jobs hard to find and the cost of labor low.
By the way, don't be misled into thinking this is just California's problem. It's coming soon to a theater near you, as they say in the movie biz.
