“But tonight America’s biggest state is making the biggest statement in America,” Newsom said. “We’re saying unmistakably and in unison that it’s time to roll the credits on the politics of chaos and the politics of cruelty. Now is the time for going far and going together.”

Why President Trump has not arrested these criminals running these sanctuary cities is very confusing to me. He is trying to drain the swamp, (so people say) but these people are breaking the law and good American’s must suffer the fallout of their offenses. The once beautiful state of California has been reduced to squalor worse than in many 3rd world nations. 1,000’s are leaving California every month, moving to other states that don’t want them because half the time they bring the same pathological ideologies that brought CA to the state it is now in, in the first place.
