The dream ends as California’s nightmare looms

The Justice Department has put California at ground zero because the state leadership has clearly said "we are a 'sanctuary state, and we will resist".

LOS ANGELES, June 21, 2017 — The California Dream is over, and the nightmare is about to begin.

The energy in the air is different; people believe that special interest groups, entitlement programs and endless Government subsidized programs are needed to save the state from self-destruction.

California’s civil war could be a reality on June 30th.

The Justice Department has sent letters to six sanctuary cities, two sanctuary counties, and the State of California escalating warnings that federal law enforcement grants could be withheld if the recipients do not prove by the end of June 30 that they are abiding by federal law Section 1373. The law mandates local city/state law enforcement cooperation with federal officials.

Section 1373 specifically deals with collecting information about a person’s immigration status.

The recipients of the letters reportedly included New York City, Chicago, New Orleans, Philadelphia, Las Vegas, Milwaukee, Miami-Dade County, Cook County, Illinois and the state of California.

The Justice Department has put California at ground zero because the state leadership has clearly said, “we are a ‘sanctuary state, and we will resist”.

That same leadership is forgetting the frustrations of native Californians whose daily lives are made more difficult as stores and markets emphasize Spanish and Spanish-speaking employees.

The golden state of opportunity has become the golden state of liability where English is a second language. Casual relationships of any kind—a conversation with the man in the line next to you, the woman pumping gas—are no longer with neighbors. They are with foreigners, between foreigners who have little basis for mutual understanding.

California’s leadership has created an us-versus-them situation that will lead to civil war. Everyday human sympathy for others is eroding. Whole families are homeless, but when we see them, we simply look the other way.

These are not Latino families; they are American families. Countless Black families are living homeless in the Great State of California. They are young, white Anglo-Saxons and American veterans with nowhere to go. The pain of the mentally ill has become unbearable. One cannot even look them in the eyes.

They are everywhere, every day, on the corners, underneath the freeway, in the parks. Despair is the new normal in California.

Meanwhile, the illegal immigrants are ascendant. People from El Salvador, Mexico and other Latin nations have taken over.

The liberal progressives have used brainwashing techniques on the locals, reducing our ability to fight for what is right. Instead, progressives demand that we accept what they have done to us.

One example of how Los Angelenos are being put at risk involves laws about selling food and merchandise on the sidewalks. These exist due to sanitation concerns, including the threat of hepatitis A.

Street vending is not yet legal in LA; it will take months to finalize a permit system for sidewalk vendors. But is anyone looking at sanitation and the conditions relating to public health, especially the provision of clean hands and lack of water and adequate sewage for these street vendors?

The reason for the sidewalk food ban was always supposedly sanitation, or the lack thereof. So it was surprising when in February, the city council voted 13-0 to change the laws regulating street vending in Los Angeles.

“It does not make good economic or moral sense to criminalize Angelenos who are trying to make an honest living and support their families,” said Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti. “Finding a pathway to regulate street vending is not just the right thing to do for vendors, it is also good for the public and our local tax base.”

According to “About Hepatitis,” 300 cases of hepatitis A, a virus spread through fecal matter usually transferred from unwashed hands, were reported between August and December of 2005. “Is this an epidemic with hepatitis A? That is hard to say,” Dr. Elizabeth Bancroft of the L.A. County Health Department said in the article.

That outbreak was traced to contaminated lettuce. County investigators identified two farms in northern California where the lettuce came from—but records show the farms were never inspected.

President Trump’s executive order to speed up the deportation of undocumented immigrants has pushed local elected officials to change the laws throughout the state of California.

Their goals are to exit the federal government and have California take a stand as a sovereign nation that will lead to massive tax increase upon the citizens of California.

California Governor Jerry Brown, Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garrett and other state and local leaders are willing to grandstand to the rest of the country that California will put on a united front against President Trump and The Department of Justice.

Even as Californians awaken to the fact that a nightmare is about to begin.

Some concerned citizens of California have pleaded for help from the Trump Administration asking for help to save the state before it is too late.

The state has vowed to keep an open border despite the warning of The Department of Justice and notwithstanding the natives stuck in the crossfire.
