Part of the PROBLEM: Gov. ‘Moonbeam’ in Calif. PARDONS immigrant FELONS facing deportation

(National SentinelEnabler: California Gov. Jerry Brown angered immigration enforcement advocates on Saturday when he announced he would pardon immigrants who have been convicted of felonies in order to prevent them from being deported by the Trump administration.


As reported by the Sacramento Bee, Brown’s decision puts his state at further odds with President Donald J. Trump’s administration, which has vowed to crack down on illegal immigrants inside the country, as well as so-called “sanctuary cities,” or municipalities whose local leaders have forbidden their law enforcement officers from cooperating with federal immigration authorities.

California has scores of sanctuary cities including San Francisco, home of Kate Steinle, who was killed by an illegal immigrant felon in 2015.

The paper noted:

Brown extended a total of 132 pardons and 19 commutations. Since returning to office in 2011, he has handed down a modern-era record 1,059 pardons, along with 37 commutations, far more than the 404 pardons and one commutation he made over his first two terms as governor, from 1975 to 1983.

Brown signed “sanctuary state” legislation passed by the heavy Democrat majority in the state legislature. That law puts limitation on state and local law enforcement’s ability to help federal officials enforce immigration violations.

Among those Brown pardoned was Candace Lee Fox, 57, of Los Angeles, who had been sentenced to 15 years to life. Fox has served 33 years in prison for joining others in a killing and robbery.

Critics of Brown’s policies towards illegal aliens note it is already costing his state vital federal law enforcement funding.

The Los Angeles Police Department was denied a request for $3 million funding from the Justice Department for an anti-violence program that LAPD officials believe is tied to the city’s — and the state’s — pro-illegal immigrant policies.

The Justice Department has not said why it denied the funding.

  1. The one per cent are terrified of America becoming independent sgain,and in a perverse way Trump is sort of playing into their hands by militarising America like hitlercdid Germany.but the one percent always cover all the bases and plan for things to go either way so he won’t outwit them They are too entrenched in every level of government bureaucracy and all private corporate activities.only a direct bloodbath of them , the whole 70 million of them could even ever hope to restore democracy, and that will never happen I think one percent of 6 billion is either 70 or 700 million?its a lot anyway, of powerful and secretive actors scattered all over the entire globe stage.
