My friend who lives in California tells me about this. It was the beginning of the end for the GOP in the state. Once they lost the LA area to the Democrats, it was over. Now they have lost the OC to them as well.
As Gov. Pete Wilson (R) plotted his reelection bid nearly a quarter-century ago, he turned to a secret weapon that would mobilize his core voters: a ballot measure to bar undocumented immigrants from accessing state services like nonemergency healthcare and public schools.
Ask anybody who lived in California through the 90s and they'll tell you they've seen this movie before.
Indeed. This is a President who has told sitting Congresswoman to go back to where they came from and suggested an Indiana born judge was unfit to try a case against him because of his Mexican heritage.Are you sure about that?
Anybody who thinks regular middle class immigrants haven't read through the lines, is dreaming. And now that white supremacists are executing minorities (not just immigrants) simply going about their daily business (what could be more American than shopping at Walmart on a Saturday), the line that Trump's rhetoric only targets illegals is getting more tenuous and indefensible.
Will add, the FBI is already warning of copycat attacks. White nationalists are jubilant and calling for more. If we start seeing monthly or even weekly attacks on concentrations of minorities, to argue that this won't have any political ramifications is laughable. And after the Trump administration defunded the office reponsible for combatting domestic terrorism, law enforcement are now likely operating from behind the curve and we should all expect more attacks:
The Department of Homeland Security quietly dismantled the intelligence group that was responsible for catching domestic terrorists
The group created reports about domestic terrorist groups and violent extremists, and helped local law enforcement handle those threats.
