It is unusual for a foreigner to get elected to office in this country, but an illegal? I do not get what people do not understand with the word illegal. Illegal means you are breaking the law, so how are these people getting into office?
California has become more wacky then even Vermont. It appears that everyday the state legislators get up and ask how then be more outlandish then the day before. Think about it, California thinks Dianne Fienstein is to conservative now to be elected on California’s behalf. California would rather mow the grass with Nancy Pelosi and the other left wing loons like Alan Shiff. California is now the poorest state in the union, it is flowing red ink with illegals who use hospitals, schools, other services and don’t pay a dime of taxes. They make the Hasidim look like up standing citizens.
It is time the federal government gets involved and begins to put an end to this madness. Sanctuary cities and the like, California by the way is now a sanctuary state. This can not go on for the people who live in land in California, more conservative people who are left holding the bag for the illegals. Taxes are going through the roof in California, homeless are all over the streets, needles can be found just about everywhere. California today looks like it’s not even a state in the United States.
California has its first illegal alien in state office, after Senate President pro Tem Kevin de León (D-Los Angeles) appointed Lizbeth Mateo to the California Student Opportunity and Access Program Project Grant Advisory Committee.
Mateo, an attorney, was born in Mexico and came to the U.S. illegally at the age of 14 with her parents, who are also illegal aliens, according to the Sacramento Bee.
She complained that illegal aliens are not adequately represented in state government, and described her appointment as a step towards correcting that alleged injustice.
“While undocumented students have become more visible in our state, they remain underrepresented in places where decisions that affect them are being made,” Mateo said, as quoted by Fox News.
De León, who is running for U.S. Senate against incumbent Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA), described Mateo as: “a courageous, determined and intelligent young woman who at great personal risk has dedicated herself to fight for those seeking their rightful place in this country,” according to Fox News.
Mateo, however, seems somewhat confused about which country she prefers.
In a Facebook post in 2016, apparently celebrating her graduation from Santa Clara University School of Law, Mateo declared, in Spanish: “[E]verything is dedicated to Oaxaca, Mexico!! to that land that I miss so much.”
While she is the first illegal alien to hold a state office, she is not the first elevated to public office in California. In 2015, the city council of Huntington Park, California, appointed two illegal aliens to city commissions, sparking a public backlash.
De León and other state officials are stoking an ongoing confrontation with the federal government over federal immigration laws.
