This is a bitter pill for Californians to swallow but after 40+ years of democrat rule in Sacramento in which unions, public sector workers and illegals get more and more and more - the chickens are coming home to roost! Take it and like it!

The Sanctuary State: Jerry Brown Signs a Trio of Bills on Behalf of Illegal Aliens. California Dream Act, which will now allow immigrant college students to apply for, and receive, state-funded scholarships and grants. AB 1236, California cities and counties will be prohibited from mandating employers to use the voluntary federal e-verify program, which checks whether workers have legitimate papers to work in the country. Under AB 353, unlicensed drivers who get their cars impounded will be able to get their car back if an agent shows up the following day with a license and vehicle registration. This is similar to the reform in San Francisco Police Department policy we first reported on in 2008, which mandates that police allow an unlicensed driver 20 minutes to call a licensed driver to the scene to drive the car away. Welcome to Mexifornia. Flush Brown down!
