California is already arguably the most liberal state in America, and now they are trying to advance a bill that would given even more priority to illegal aliens.
California lawmakers have proposed a bill that, if passed, would give illegal aliens the opportunity to serve in state and local Democratic Party leadership positions.
The new bill, SB288, would allow illegal aliens to serve as state convention delegates and county committee leaders with the Democratic Party.
This would give those who broke the law to enter the U.S. the chance to be involved in the party platform and other issues that directly impact American citizens.
The bill would only be applicable to leadership and delegate positions within the Democratic Party, and would not apply to the California Republican Party.
Local Democratic officials, in discussing the bill, suggested it could apply to some undocumented immigrants including so-called Dreamers — young immigrants brought illegally to the U.S. as children who were given a temporary deportation reprieve under the Obama administration.
SB288 has been widely panned by Republicans in the state, who argue that the measure is less about helping immigrants and more about Democrats “pandering” to the party’s progressive base.
“It’s abject pandering and arrogance,” Shawn Steel, the Republican National Committeeman for California, told Fox News. “This is what happens when you have too much power…it’s just progressives trying to out-progressive each other.”
In an already liberal-leaning state, Democrats won supermajority control of both houses of the state legislature last November and retained control of the governor’s mansion when then-Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom easily defeated his Republican opponent, John Cox.
Given the party’s control in Sacramento and that the bill only pertains to the Democrat’s delegates and committees, SB288 appears poised to pass easily through the legislature and make its way to Newsom’s desk.
“Democrats can do whatever they want in California right now,” Steel said. “They think nobody is going to oppose them.”
The ultra-liberal state has been on a roll lately with outrageous bills that are aimed at prioritizing illegal aliens over legal American citizens.
Last month, California’s Democrat Gov. Gavin Newsom signed a $215 billion budget, which includes taxpayer-funded health care for illegal aliens.
Newsom signed the massive $214.8 billion funding bill into law, which includes a provision that would expand health care for people who are illegally in the U.S. and penalizes people who do not purchase health insurance.
Back in May, California state lawmakers said they entire state is a “sanctuary city” that will provide blanket protections to the millions of illegal aliens currently living in the state.
Last year, California state legislators passed a resolution demanding that President Donald Trump and Congress issue a formal apology to illegal aliens for “mistreating” them after the broke the law to enter the United States.
These are the radical policies many top Democrats are supporting, and now they want give illegal aliens the opportunity to serve in state and local Democratic Party leadership positions.
