California's Gov. Gavin Newsom puts out a video for illegals on how to obstruct ICE
[American Thinker] I thought it was satire, something cooked up by his political enemies.

You couldn't put out a less attractive video than the one Gavin Newsom did for illegal aliens on Twitter, advising them himself on how to obstruct ICE from any deportation maneuvers. And sure enough, he wasn't hacked ‐ it really was blue-checked he.

Leave aside the fact that he's the governor of a U.S. state, supposedly there to represent the interests of that state's citizens rather than those of the foreigners who come here without papers, quite illegally, and run up the tab using his state's services. They're his constituents, too, now, in fact, the ones whose interests he chooses to represent over those of the voters (oh, wait...). He's acting as Their Lawyer now, advising them how to thwart ICE like some National Lawyers Guild activist in how to obstruct the feds legally.

It's also insulting to voters. Newsom cited Proposition 187 in the 1990s as something "we've been through before," as if to say voters never approved this measure to keep illegals from using "free" U.S. services until it was overturned by the courts. And more creepy still, he cites the "three strikes" law, as if to acknowledge that illegals commit quite a few crimes while they are here sopping up the services. It's also well out of the realm of reality, given that voters polled say they aren't happy with his handing out of free health care to the foreign population here illegally in a bid to incentivize more to come.

But what a strange presentation it was. Play it with the sound down and look at how he tosses and tilts his head back and forth, kind of manically, his chemically whitened teeth flashing forced and fake smiles, and his eyes widening and eyebrows rising, up and down, up and down... It's kind of like Peter Strzok's forced performance in the spygate hearings over in Congress. He looks creepy.
The Justice Department should direct the FBI to intervene and assist ICE at the local level. If obstructed by local law enforcement or pols, issue a federal warrant for the arrest of the obstructionists and haul them away to a federal prison pending trial. That should put a stop to this bullshi*.

#2 Active insurrection against the Federal government, send in the troops, hang the state government and install a governor for the next five years and make California re-apply for statehood.

#6 Victor Davis Hansen, The Case For Trump, page 91:

Ironically, the only way to turn Oaxaca's masses into middle-class voters, akin to conservative Cuban immigrants, would be to close the borders and allow in diverse and legal immigrants on a meritocratic basis. Only then could the formidable powers of intermarriage, assimilation, and intgration persuade illeal aliens inside the United States to emulate pior patters of assimilation as, for example, of the Italian Catholic diaspora. Today an Italian surname, whether Giuliani or Cuomo, hardly proves a reliable guide of voter preference. This fact is alos largely because half a million Italians over the decades did not inter the United States en mass illegally and perpetually.

Illigal immigration had become no longer a matter of a few thousand immigrants crossing the southern border or overstaying visas, often in search of low-paying jobs that Americans purportedly would not do. Nor was it even a dilemma about wat to do with a static resident alien population "without papers." Instead, the issue became a referendum on the future of US elections, the trajectory of the Democratic Party, and the idea of melting-pot traditionalism versus salad-bowl identity politics. In a CBS/YouGov poll of the spring 2018, a majority of Americans who had experienced firsthand illegal immigration felt that illegal aliens had made their own communities worse off, including a pluralty of black Americans.
