It looks like Trump is going to have a battle on his hands with certain states and their sanctuary cities. California, especially is focused on keeping their status quo as is.
Don’t they realize that on November 8, Obama and his progressive agenda were eliminated, and that Trump and the conservative movement have won the day. I guess not.
California has gone so far, being the home to former Speaker Nancy Pelosi, that they have hired former Obama Administration staff to prepare a fight for illegal immigration against the incoming Trump Administration.
From the Political Insider:
Former Attorney General Eric Holder has just been hired by the state of California to help “resist any attempts to roll back the progress California has made” by Trump’s administration.
California Democrats are allegedly worried that President-elect Trump will block their liberal agenda, which includes amnesty, ObamaCare and climate change. Holder will serve as “outside counsel” to the California Legislature, which is heavily controlled by Democrats.
Here is what the California Democrat legislators decided:
With the upcoming change in administrations, we expect that there will be extraordinary challenges for California in the uncertain times ahead.
The Legislature will work with the Governor and our next Attorney General to protect California’s economy and our sensible policies on climate change, health care, civil rights and immigration.
This is a critical moment in the history of our nation. We have an obligation to defend the people who elected us and the policies and diversity that make California an example of what truly makes our nation great.
To accomplish that we will assemble the best and brightest in defense of our values and constitutional guarantees, and towards that end, the Legislature has retained the services of an expert legal team from the nationally-renowned Covington & Burling law firm, led by former United States Attorney General Eric H. Holder, Jr. Mr. Holder and his team will serve as outside counsel to the Legislature, advising us in our efforts to resist any attempts to roll back the progress California has made.
Well, apparently the dreamers in California are terrified that president-elect Donald Trump will ruin their liberal Shangri-La they’ve built on free love and other people’s money, so they are planning on throwing some roadblocks in Trump’s path to slow him down.
They’re so worried about what Trump plans to do that they’ve assembled a crack team of lawyers to prevent Trump from stopping illegal immigration, drug trafficking, higher healthcare premiums, and wasting money on inclement weather.
Well, Donald Trump must be shaking in his boots by now, or more likely, he’s not phased even one iota and will continue forward with his agenda.
You know…the one that got him elected president!
