I suppose any state that elects Jerry Brown as its governor — again — isn’t too firmly tied to reality, so it’s no surprise when California passes some profoundly ignorant legislation.
However, the state’s ignorance became positively sinister on Monday, when the California Senate passed a bill that would turn the Golden State into America’s first sanctuary state.
According to The Sacramento Bee, Senate Bill 54 would prohibit funds from being used for local California authorities to assist federal immigration enforcement. It passed Monday on a party-line vote, 27-12, and was headed to the lower house.
“We are trying to make our communities safer and be intelligent about this,” Democrat Senate President Pro Tempore Kevin de León said. “No rhetoric and no bluster.”
However, the bill faced heavy opposition from law enforcement and Republicans.
“This bill is unsafe,” said Sen. Jeff Stone, a Republican. “This bill is unlawful. This bill is designed to make California a sanctuary for certain dangerous criminals.”
“SB 54 shields child abusers, human traffickers, and elder abusers from deportation and guarantees their return to our communities, and that’s why our fight must continue,” Republican State Senator Joel Anderson said in an email, according to Breitbart.
“Over 31,000 Californians signed our petition and helped force the author to amend SB 54 so that murderers, rapists and child molesters would not be shielded from federal immigration authorities, but as long as felons are protected, we cannot stop fighting,” Anderson explained.
Of course, given the Trump administration’s policy of denying federal funds for sanctuary jurisdictions — and given California’s precarious financial state — passing Senate Bill 54 could also have huge implications for the state.
Sadly, California isn’t the only state that could make itself a sanctuary for illegal aliens. According to WJZ-TV, Maryland was considering similar legislation. There, though, the governor is a Republican who is vigorously opposed to the bill, which could present difficulties for supporters.
Whatever happens, it’s a dangerous precedent for residents of those states — and one that needs to be stopped. Please like and share on Facebook and Twitter if you agree.

Californicate Governor MoonBeam is safe with his Security constantly surrounding him . . . as for state taxpayers, he evidently doesn't care; as our leaders often say . . . . "do as I say, not as I do".
The only argument I've heard to support Sanctuary Cities is, they are safer than non-Sanctuary cities, which is bull crap!
Or, as for Socialist News reports, based on bogus numbers (otherwise forever known as obamba numbers):
"Safer? Not exactly. I responded that the study primarily cited crime-rate comparison by immigrants and non-immigrant populations, not illegal aliens."
The Left cooks their numbers in order to say Sanctuary Cities are safer . . . what they should be saying is "Sanctuary Cities are safer for illegal aliens" and more dangerous for American citizens.
I've heard all the hype, now lets see some of the punishment! It's time to cut the funds and start the crying and the sooner the better?
Did ya read CA SB54? See text https://leginfo.legislature.ca.gov/faces/billTextClient.xhtml?bill_...
This in my opinion, a native born Californian residing in this hell hole of liberal insanity!
living here in this demented state of Kalifornivsky and I pray that Trump cuts every federal dollar, dime and penny from this treasonous state. Not one cent to every Federal program here. Moonbeam is way out of line and so is his demon-rat majority in the State legislature.
Trump, PLEASE PLEASE, KEEP your promise and cut us off from all federal monies, straight across the board! The hue and cry may cause some of these brain damaged jerks to wake up and straighten out their priorities. The criminal Foreign Nationals, residing, working here and sucking of the government teat illegally, have got to go!!!!! They have no legal, constitutional or so called sanctuary right to reside in this county as so called immigrants/ dreamers. Calling them immigrants is an insult and slap in the face to every true immigrant who ever came here as prescribed by law instead of slithering across our borders.
CA's lefts is a nest of me, me self righteous mis-guided and mis-educated. Their "illegal" invaders harm other States safety. What problems has CA solved that is meaningful?
