California is the place to be if you are an illegal immigrant

(My new American Thinker post)

In an earlier post, I protested that California is issuing drivers' licenses to illegal immigrants.   

It looks like California wants to become a "haven" for illegal immigration.   

"Go west young man" is now "ven aqui sin papeles amigo"!   

Governor Brown did it again:    

"Law enforcement officials in California who arrest immigrants in the country illegally will be prohibited from detaining them for transfer to federal authorities unless they committed a serious crime under one of several bills signed Saturday by Gov. Jerry Brown to ease conditions for immigrants.   
The Trust Act is the second milestone bill on immigration signed by the governor in two days. On Thursday he approved a measure allowing immigrants in the country illegally to receive California driver's licenses."

This is insane.   

We have immigration laws to protect our sovereignty and our workers from unscrupulous employers.    

Will the Obama administration be intervening in California to stop a state from sticking its nose in immigration (i.e. federal) law?  The answer is no but I'm the eternal optimist.  

In the meantime, the word will get out that illegals can drive in California and avoid ICE.    
The irony here is that California is attracting illegal immigrants at a time when it is a tough place to find a job:  11 of the 20 cities with highest unemployment are in California.

Memo to Obama: Stay out of the NFL

(My new American Thinker post)

Does President Obama have a lot on his plate these days?  I guess not because he has managed to inject himself in the Redskins' controversy:   

"President Barack Obama says that if he owned the Washington Redskins, he would "think about changing" the team name, wading into the controversy over a football nickname that many people deem offensive to Native Americans.  Obama, in an interview with The Associated Press, said team names like the Redskins offend "a sizable group of people." He said that while fans get attached to the nicknames, nostalgia may not be a good enough reason to keep them in place.   "I don't know whether our attachment to a particular name should override the real legitimate concerns that people have about these things," he said in the interview, which was conducted Friday."   

What exactly would he change the name to?   

Let's see "pieles rojas" to celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month.  Wouldn't that upset the native Americans who speak Spanish?  Wouldn't they complain their skin isn't really red?  

How about the "Washington Mixed Sox" to avoid any reference to a particular ethnic group.  

Political correctness is killing us and this is a good example.  

Team mascots are not intended to devalue any group or identity.  On the contrary, I've always associated the mascot with fun, as in the case of the Redskins.  

What about the Cowboys?  Should they be called the "Cowpersons"?  We can't discriminate against those single women who voted for Obama because Romney was going to take away their birth control pills.  

President Obama should govern rather than opine about the NFL.  He is got bigger things on his plate, a lot bigger things!   

We need a "break" from Washington on Sunday afternoons when the Cowboys play the Redskins!   

We already have enough Obama in our lives!  

P.S.  You can hear my thoughts about the Redskins controversy here.
