Just or Unjust Laws: CA Government in Action (or Inaction)
From the California State Capitol Museum’s website:
LEGISLATORUM EST JUSTAS
It is the duty of Legislators
to make just laws.
This guiding motto, displayed above the podium of the Assembly Chamber, reminds Assembly Members of their responsibility. It is a responsibility that has grown over the years. In 1849, the first Legislature passed 146 laws and 19 resolutions. Today’s Legislature will propose, analyze, and debate over 6,000 bills in a single two-year session.
A friend of PolitiChicks contacted me to let us know about a Southern California delegation of concerned Patriots representing We the People Rising, who drove to their State Capitol in Sacramento on Tuesday, August 19, to meet with Democrat Senator Ricardo Lara regarding proposed Senate Bill 1159. But what they saw in Senator Lara’s office on a Tuesday afternoon during working hours was a shocker—a Gay Pride Block Party complete with a cross-dresser partying with the Senator’s staff.
So, what is disconcerting about S.B. 1159 that a group of concerned citizens spent 14 hours and two days to meet with the Senator?
The Los Angeles Times describes the bill which was passed by the Senate and is now headed to the Assembly: “A bill by Sen. Ricardo Lara (D-Bell Gardens) would ease the licensing process for [illegals to obtain professional licenses to practice as] psychologists and pharmacists, in addition to other healthcare professionals, and for about two dozen other occupations including real estate agents and security guards….”
“SB 1159 would allow about 40 state boards to accept a federal taxpayer identification number as proof of identification in lieu of a Social Security number (which illegals are not supposed to legally possess).”
According to We the People Rising’s website, Lara is the same Senator who authored “the CA Driver’s License Bill for Illegals (AB 60) and the Health Care For All Act (SB 1005) that would provide health care to illegals.”
While the delegation did not have the opportunity to formally meet with Lara, they managed to have a very brief encounter with him in the hallway before he ducked into another Senator’s office. When he came out, he was out escorted by the Senate’s Sergeant-at-Arms back to his office—keeping him away from the people he represents.
While in Sacramento, they spent their time lobbying Senators and Assembly members and testifying against House Resolution 51 which reads, in part,
“WHEREAS, The Assembly supports both state and federal efforts to formulate strong partnerships with Central American countries to promote economic development, education, and the rule of law as a means to improve, stabilize, and democratize their institutions, which will in turn help promote public safety and curtail mass immigration; now, therefore, be it:”
“Resolved by the Assembly of the State of California, That the Assembly declares that all Californians, as residents of the United States, have civic responsibility to respect the human dignity of immigrants seeking refuge in the United States and to ensure that those immigrants are afforded due process and equal protection under the laws of the United States…..”
In California, often House Resolutions turn into law.
LEGISLATORUM EST JUSTAS LEGES CONDERE. It is the duty of Legislators to make just laws.
Just laws in the minds of California Democrat legislators are healthcare and drivers licenses for illegals and now professional licenses for illegals.
According to Real Clear Politics, illegals also get in-state tuition, and they don’t have to fear being turned in to federal immigration authorities by without cause or saying anything to them that would “induce fear” of deportation.
Real Clear Politics continues, “The most far-reaching change of all is a bill known as the Trust Act, which prohibits law enforcement officers from turning over persons they detain to immigration authorities except in arrests for major felonies or sex crimes.
The Founder of We the People Rising, Robin Hvidston, states, “We want more citizens to get involved in their government, not only in California, but nationwide. Visit your respective state capitols, visit the representatives’ offices and attend hearings. Get involved! Our country needs you.”
Kudos to Robin and her colleagues who spent two days and 14 hours in the car: Carol Schaeffer, Patrice Lynes, Raymond Herrera, Raul Rodriguez, Mike McGetrick , Staysi Barth and Robert Newman.
