In today’s episode of ‘Everything in California is Backwards,’ Attorney General Xavier Becerra announced that his office will prosecute employers – legal, hard-working Americans – should they assist federal authorities in cracking down on illegal immigration.
In short, the AG wants to jail people who obey the law, in an attempt to help those who ignore it. This is the equivalent of a bank robbery in which the prosecutor goes after bank executives while protecting the guy who stole the money.
“It’s important, given these rumors that are out there, to let people know – more specifically today, employers – that if they voluntarily start giving up information about their employees or access to their employees in ways that contradict our new California laws, they subject themselves to actions by my office,” Becerra said regarding reports that ICE is planning a massive sweep of illegals in Northern California.
“We will prosecute those who violate the law,” he said, unaware of the irony that he is protecting those who violate the law.

How does a ‘loathsome little demagogue‘ like this get elected anywhere in America?
California is clearly looking for a fight with the Trump Administration and by extension, the majority of Americans who support the enforcement of our nation’s laws.
Acting Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Director Thomas Homan has already vowed to double the number of deportation officers in California.

Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen revealed her department has asked federal prosecutors to review if they can lodge criminal charges against officials in sanctuary cities who refuse to cooperate with deportation efforts.
Homan has previously stated, “We’ve got to start charging some of these politicians with crimes.”
What better place to start than the California AG’s office?
This is lawlessness on an administrative level, and Becerra needs to be one of the first officials jailed for providing aid and comfort to illegals in his ‘sanctuary state.’
