California Appeals Court: We Might As Well Just Open the Borders

By Debbie Schlussel
We already know that plenty of major American cities are “sanctuary cities,” prohibiting police from asking people their immigration status or turning over known illegal aliens to Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).
But, now, not only is Los Angeles a sanctuary city, California’s Appellate Court says the whole state is. That’s the essential content of a 25-page decision the court issued, last week, in Harold P. Sturgeon v. William J. Bratton et al., Break the Cycle et al., Interveners and Respondents. With the involvement and backing of the ACLU, the court affirmed that it’s illegal to use illegal alien status–known illegal alien status–to start a police investigation.



Gracias & Shukran, Stupid Gringo Infidel Judges

It’s absurd. Being an illegal alien is, by definition, illegal. Thus, the adjective before the word “alien.” An illegal alien who is here is breaking the law. If you break any other law, the police can use that to start an investigation. But now, the People’s Republic of Granola’s appeals court elevates that crime above all others. It’s apparently no longer enough for probable cause or even reasonable suspicion.
We might as well just open the borders. We know that Los Angeles County, from which this case emanated, is the country that spends $44 million a month for benefits for the kids of illegal aliens.
And yet, who cares about the cost? We need to be tolerant of lawbreakers if they’re not here legally. We need to elevate them above all others.
Thanks, California, for the trend-setting of fruits, nuts, and flakes. The state has been the trendsetter in speeding up the moral and cultural death of America and now the border obliteration of America.
In case you were wondering, the black-robed idiots who issued this 25 pages of toilet paper are H. Walter Croskey, Joan D. Klein, and Patti S. Kitching.

California is the worst-run state in the country with the highest taxes and regulations. And the cost of housing is way beyond what is affordable. I’m glad I left and I’m not thinking about returning there. California used to attract the better sort of people. Now it attracts vagrants, freeloaders and criminals, most of whom are illegal aliens. The only thing left in California after all the productive citizens have left the state are the human cockroaches – its parasitical leftist political class and all the illegal aliens to whom they pander. California’s past, present and future – and the future of America!

Not to dismiss the seriousness of this ruling, but it’s my opinion that Appellate Courts are punters. The judges show up, collect their checks, and reverse the lower courts so that the state Supreme Court has to do the actual work of deciding the law. Keeps both courts and the trial lawyers (no personal offense intended Debbie) employed.

Why can’t judges be impeached for blatant disregard for the rule of law and making illegal rulings?
If we cannot remove corrupt judges we are toast- IMHO
This ruling is in violation of federal immigration law and as such these morons should be jailed for violating the law.

San Francisco D.A.’s program trained illegal immigrants for jobs they couldn’t legally hold.
As she runs for state attorney general, prosecutor Kamala Harris faces questions over a program that trained illegal immigrant drug felons for jobs, kept them out of jail and expunged their records.
And yes she was and still is a big Obama supporter.

Just as sickening is the story that came out of NY where the illegal alien, working for a roofing contractor in violation of law, fell through a part of the roof, sued the State of New York for $5.3 million (of taxpayers’ money) and won. The contractor was hired by the state and nobody looked into the status of any of the employees to determine of they had the right to be here and/or be employed legally.
No need to wonder where the priorities are, eh?

“Just as sickening is the story that came out of NY …”
Shh, it’s only post-worthy if if denegrates California. The same crap happening elsewhere is nothing worth noting. Sheesh.
