California: Immigration News

Because California isn’t already facing enough of a crisis with its southern border and illegal immigrants, now news about legal immigrants:

California Governor Jerry Brown just signed a new law that would reduce the number of legal immigrants eligible for deportation after being convicted of a misdemeanor, even crimes such as child molestation and identity theft.

SB 1310 will cut the maximum possible sentence for a misdemeanor by one day, a move that would halt deportation for immigrants convicted of the offense.

Federal law maintains that immigrants sentenced to 365 days in jail are eligible for deportation. The new law will set California’s maximum sentence at 364 days, making sure no immigrant is ever deported under the federal rule.

On top of this, it’s also been reported that Brown is being pushed to run for president in 2016. While Brown has not made a public statement about his plans, he has already raised millions of dollars…

In some good news regarding California and the border, the federal government canceled plans to fly illegal immigrants from Texas to California. No official reason was given, however, it would appear the protests may have had a lot to do with it.

The Customs and Border Protection agency on Monday gave no reason for the cancellation. An official with the agency’s union said the move reflected public opposition.

Gabe Pacheco, a spokesman for the National Border Patrol Council union, said the cancellation of the California flights was likely due to public pressure.

He said agents were worried about safety and being stretched too thin by the new arrivals, even as they collected clothes and shoes for the young people and families who make up the majority of those detained.

“It was political, plain and simple,” Pacheco said. “Public outcry after people found out that illegal immigrants from Central America were most likely going to be released here in California made them stop.”

  1. Well, he’s got to sew up the criminal vote!

    I think they stopped the flights, BTW, because California is already hopelessly and completely Democrat. They need to seed red states, not socialist paradises like us.

  4. Two possibilities that I can think of:

    1. Liberals like Brown truly do not have any notion of the Law of Unintended Consequences. Sure, it’s easy to argue that maybe a legal immigrant shouldn’t be sent home for bouncing a check, but this new law means that we might not even be able to send them home for passing off bad $20s. So when we hear of a bank robbery that went bad and led to the death of a security guard, and it turns out that it was committed by a legal immigrant who had previously served 364 days in jail for forging checks, we’ll have the never-ending compassion (for some) of the left to thank for it.

    2. They do understand the Law of Unintended Consequences, but they just don’t care.

  5. And the net brings news today that Jerry wants to spend $67B on his Delta Tunnel project (about the same amount of money he says his Choo-Choo will cost) and finance it by upping the taxes of property owners in Los Angeles and Santa Clara Counties – without a vote of the people (something that was written into Prop-13, passed back when Moonbeam was Governor in the 20th-Century).
    Oh, this will not result in one new net gallon of water available to water users – but should put a buck or two into the pockets of the usual suspects.

  8. 3. They do understand the Law of Unintended Consequences, and like them.

  9. Another president who hates the US.

    At least this one openly hates the middle class, too.

  15. He’s gettin’ testy. It won’t be long now before he starts threatening to put names on a list and turn them over to the Gestapo or to inform to employers. A dog returns to his vomit, and it isn’t that he can’t learn to behave himself, it’s that he just can’t let go of his pathological hatred, even if it eats him alive.

  16. Annnnnnd, the illegals have a 90% no-show rate because it’s in their best interest to remain in the system, or so I was told by a couple of our most prolific commenters. It was total bu!!$h!t then, and it’s total bu!!$h!t now. All we need is an epidemic caused by an illegal and you @$$w!p3$ will be batting .000. Good show guys. You couldn’t have been more wrong.

  18. If this keeps up there won’t be any “trash” or anyone of any color left who can afford to live in California, Vota. You may want to think through whether there is even a long term need for a bill such as the one you’re proposing, because it seems that a lot of smart Californians are in process of self-deporting, or plan to do so at first opportunity. I must admit that some days you don’t strike me as a particularly critical thinker, Vota.

  22. what’s the difference between the U.S. Justice Department’s Executive Office for Immigration Review and a syphilitic crack whore?

    the U.S. Justice Department’s Executive Office for Immigration Review reports to Barack Obama, the 44th president of the “United States of America”

    whereas the syphilitic crack whore remembers her pimp fondly

  23. ==it’s also been reported that Brown is being pushed to run for president in 2016.==

    I would love to see a decent Saturday Night Live sketch lampooning the potential 2016 dream team of Jerry Brown and Joe Biden. It almost writes itself.

    elissa (d14cd1)

  24. i’m LOLing at the idea of “puta” showing up at my front door with some bull5hit government forms and a handful of his fellow brownshirts, ready to evict me & my fellow native born wife from #Failifornia.

    that would be almost as awesome as a platter of bacon, served with bacon on the side, with a bacon salad and bacon for dessert.

  30. native americans aren’t actually americans cause of most of them live on sovereign territories called “reservations”

    they’re more like residue

    happyfeet (8ce051)

  31. My time spent on the res was a valuable experience. Should be mandatory for kids. Like a walkabout for America.

    One difference between Res life and regular life – Indians go fishing with a net. It really takes the hit-n-miss aspect out of the game.

    He should try running for the Presidency of Mexico.

  35. Papertiger,

    My recollection of the rez is piles of beer cans, monthly commodities and families being turned out of the tribe as soon as the casino profits came rolling in. On the upside, it was good to be kids and run around like wild animals, totally unaware of the bitter realities.

  36. Dana you forget the middle-management opportunities at the local Burger Kings and check cashing enterprises

    it’s all about franchising

    but you can’t go back and do it all over now

  37. After The New York Times published the article about Mr. Walsh’s paper online on Wednesday, the War College’s provost, Lance Betros, a retired brigadier general, said in a telephone interview that the college would begin an investigation immediately.

    Mr. Walsh’s paper will be run through an online plagiarism detection program, the provost said, and if there is evidence of a violation, the college will convene an academic review board to determine whether Mr. Walsh committed plagiarism and, if so, whether it was intentional.

    The school’s commandant would ultimately determine any punishment.

    “We’re not going to treat this any differently than with another student,” Dr. Betros said.

    But Dr. Betros emphasized that the War College’s students were repeatedly reminded about the strict academic integrity policy. “We drill that in incessantly,” he said.

    Located in Carlisle, Pa., the Army War College is a coveted career stop for ambitious officers, and its graduates since its 1901 founding include Dwight D. Eisenhower and Norman Schwarzkopf. Its current student handbook states that plagiarism will result in disenrollment and that discoveries of academic violations have led to degrees’ being rescinded and names’ being scraped off the bronze plaques honoring graduates on campus.

    here’s the best part of the story… hard to believe the NY Slimes ran this story (and hopefully this is withing quotation guidelines here)

  39. Red – the way I read it that guy was going to lose in a landslide anyhow. So the NYTimes gave him the symbolic kick, so to pretend like they’re a news organ.

  40. the Army War College is gay

    like Liberace gay

    wif sprinkles

    happyfeet (8ce051)

  41. 38, 40-
    I have a similar but slightly different read on Walsh. It’s better for “the cause” if he loses big because he’s a plagiarist rather than because he’s a liberal. They’re ((NYT) just taking that point home for readers so nobody gets the wrong idea and concludes that it’s his progressive ideas that cost him his seat.

    elissa (d14cd1)

  42. it’s like if Thad Cochran loses big because he’s a shameless statist ass-weasel rather than because he’s a drooling senile pudding-slurper

    happyfeet (8ce051)

  43. elissa (d14cd1) …

    Yeah. That sounds about right.

    papertiger (c2d6da)

  44. oh.

    i meant that vice versa it just came out backwards

    happyfeet (8ce051)

  45. “One difference between Res life and regular life – Indians go fishing with a net.”

    papertiger – I’ve heard tell sometimes of the use of dynamite before the use of the nets. Plus teh honkies don’t like them spearing teh fishies.

    daleyrocks (bf33e9)

  46. elissa,

    I’m always curious about those spinners of talking points: they know what they’re doing, of course, but at what point do they fully give in to the deception and actually *believe* they are not lying, but rather just doing what is necessary and politically expedient? How do they – if they can – separate such dishonesty from the personal lives? Clearly, Clinton couldn’t. I wonder if he’s par for the course… And how seared must a conscience be to not be bothered or have any sense of conviction in the spirit living so deceitfully?

  47. I remember vividly their using a boat to run the net clear across the Trinity river. Then two guys jumped in, corraled as many as they wanted, folded the show up , and went home.
    Gave us a ride up the hill.

    papertiger (c2d6da)

  48. On topic – Brown doesn’t have a salmon’s chance in Hoopa of winning the Potus.

    He should try running for the Presidency of Mexico.

    But if the US becomes and more more like Mexico — demographically (and, in turn, politically and culturally) — then your quip won’t be such a quip in the future.

    If this country turns into a larger version of a blue-state urban area, where just about any liberal/Democrat no matter how corrupt and nonsensical he or she is will nonetheless keep winning in elections, then lights out, America. Been nice knowing you.
