California's Red Ripple

As you all know, CA is a blue sanctuary state. I've lived in San Diego county my entire life and 100% do not support being a sanctuary state. When Gov. Jerry Brown signed this into law back in October, my wife and I were disgusted. Thankfully, certain CA cities and counties are doing something about this:

"The ripple began in Los Alamitos where the city council voted to opt out of Californiaís sanctuary law. And it was followed by Orange County who voted to join the U.S. Department of Justice in challenging the stateís sanctuary city laws. This decision was echoed by the city of Escondido and later this month San Diego County will also vote to join their ranks in this federal lawsuit. Other municipalities are lining up to consider doing the same."

There are plenty of conservatives in CA and it seems like plenty of liberals that feel abandoned by their party because they're realizing it no longer represents them. Common sense Californians are sick and tired of these far left political views and it's great to see something being done about it.

I went to a meeting for my county's Land Use Plan for 2040 last week. It was a first experience for me.

If I wanted to hear the presentation, I had to go outside and sit with an English-speaking member of the team. There were 3 of us out there in the cold. Then we came back inside and participated in placing our allocated 12 dots on the things that were most important to us. The English description of each choice was second and in parenthesis.

I've listened to a few politicos (a la Sheriff Aripio) come into Council meetings. One is actually running for county sheriff, and showed up with his black cowboy hat, and I just KNEW the tone he was going to use.

"It's a bloodless invasion, and we have to turn the tide"

Even though I have met my wife's coyote, she went thru the process of assimilation and is a US citizen now. All these dreamers, who have gone thru school and become professional, ESPECIALLY the lawyers, amaze me that they just flaunt that they have never assimilated or made an effort to become law-abiding citizens.

This is silly, why are we so against enforcing immigration laws? And it can't be about fair - because these sanctuary laws punish people for going through the legal hurdles of doing things the right way, and promotes favoritism of people/countries that are geographically closer.
It can't be about "helping" them. You're not helping anyone by exploiting their labor, paying them less than you would otherwise have to. You're certainly not helping the US worker whose wages are depressed because they will refuse to take a job that literally doesn't pay "market rate" and won't compete against an illegal immigrant.

And You're not helping the US as a whole - all this does is set a precedent that states and cities can and should pick and choose which laws they want to follow, instead of going through the proper process of changing said laws. We fought a war on states outright defying the feds, the rebels lost.

It's stupid - the USA (and every country in the world) has a right and a duty to pick and choose who we want to immigrate to this country. Period.

My family spent a kings ransom to come here in the 80s legally and believe me it was not easy for two educated people to leave a communist country. It took almost 2 years to get all the paper work together, including all sorts of medical check ups. And all of this cost a ton of money. So it pisses me and my other legal immigrants when parts of this country look the other way to illegal immigration.

Against enforcing laws? Most of these people are against referring to these individuals as ILLEGAL ALIENS. They prefer the term "undocumented"... I am fairly certain if I start practicing Dentistry tomorrow and get caught I could not say I am an "Undocumented Dentist" or a "Dreamer Dentist".

(WHITE PEOPLE DON'T LIKE TO SEE BROWN PEOPLE) You guys only hate immigrants if they're latino or muslim

All of you white conservatives or just conservatives are so scared of change and different. The amount of Dreamers or even people that don't fall into the program isn't even a major number that would affect much if they did get papers. Most pay their taxes and live normal lives, considering you're all on this BMW forum I'm going to consider you're all well off in life while i hope you know most of the "illegal aliens" are barely making by with the jobs they can get, most Latinos come here and save their money for back home where Mexico is about 10x worse than the US. Now I understand it's "AMERICANS FIRST" but stop now you guys are just partaking in the political shit show where we blame the immigrants/ lower class for the problem whens in reality its the corporations and 1%, I mean shit I bet all of you must despise the homeless by now too (which are also mainly WHITE people here in LA which we get from across the country). Hell those "illegal aliens" would rather sell to make a living then beg like most of the white people out here, there is some pride you know. Just remember F the left, f the right. The're both working to milk all of the American People(AND Immigrants) for everything they can while they can. Honestly I'm a latino and I can tell you I don't agree with most politics they push out here in Los Angeles, some of them are just too communist honestly. But I strongly feel we need better dialogue between conservatives and liberals however you want to divide yourselves.

PS: STOP WATCHING FOX AND CNN, they are both trying to agitate you with opposing views.

Thought on Syria? Fake chemical attack video? would like to see how you guys are taking all that in.

religion and skin color do not matter; how one enters the country is the issue. secondly please do not use the term "you guys" you're painting an entire race with the same brush which is racist. lastly please do not assume my political affiliation, which party i contribute to or who i may have voted for because you're operating on assumption or opinion not fact and for the record i do not watch fox news or cnn.
