OAKLAND, Calif. (CN) – In the wake of President-elect Donald Trump’s vow to yank federal funding from cities that don’t comply with his administration’s plan to deport millions of undocumented immigrants, the Oakland City Council reaffirmed its status Tuesday as a sanctuary city and asked California Gov. Jerry Brown to declare the entire state a sanctuary for undocumented immigrants.

First California talks of seceding, then becoming a Sanctuary State.

Why not just give it to Mexico and be done with it?

Federal Preemption.

Sorry but California can't do this and neither can cities.

California Gov. Jerry Brown...


These people are old, delusional hippies. It can't be helped.





I am Governor Jerry Brown
My aura smiles and never frowns
Soon I will be president

Carter power will soon go 'way
I will be Führer one day
I will command all of you
Your kids will meditate in school
Your kids will meditate in school

California Über Alles
California Über Alles
Über Alles California
Über Alles California

Zen fascists will control you
Hundred percent natural
You will jog for the master race
And always wear the happy face
Close your eyes, can't happen here
Big Bro' on white horse is near
The hippies won't come back, you say
Mellow out or you will pay
Mellow out or you will pay

California Über Alles
California Über Alles
Über Alles California
Über Alles California

Now it is nineteen eighty-four
Knock-knock at your front door
It's the suede denim secret police
They have come for your uncool niece


Come quietly to the camp
You'd look nice as a drawstring lamp
Don't you worry, it's only a shower
For your clothes, here's a pretty flower

Die on organic poison gas
Serpent's egg's already hatched
You will croak, you little clown
When you mess with President Brown
When you mess with President Brown

California Über Alles
California Über Alles
Über Alles California
Über Alles California

This backlash could be seen coming a mile away. Cut the funding and watch them fold.

Now that we are done with Orwell's 1984 are we going to move on to Escape from NY and LA?

I had to look that up.

State law cannot preempt federal law, but states are doing it with marijuana legislation, aren't they?

Nullification in certain aspects is allowed.

But Constitutionally speaking immigration is the purview of the Federal Government and always has been.

There's no constitutional authority for drug enforcement.

California won't secede. They have only 2 paths to do so. Option 1 is by armed rebellion. Option 2 is by the consent of the state. So thats pretty much a moot point right now.

As for sanctuary status I think there should be a law that makes those who voted for sanctuary status as co conspirators should illegals commit a crime in their jurisdiction.

Cut off federal funding.

Once the law is laid down they will bow. Hang cutting Federal funding in front of them and they will lay down on the ground. We will never hear the word "sanctuary" again, I assure you. They will become "Sentry" cities, guarding against entrance. Just flash those Federal dollars and they will comply. I have seen this happen in my lifetime several times. One was in New Orleans with the drinking age. They dropped it fairly swiftly once the Feds threatened cutting highway funds.

and yet had Hillary won, California would be as quiet as a mouse and no-one would be any the wiser.

The Commerce Clause and Necessary and Proper Clause say otherwise. When drugs, legal and illegal, cross international and then state boundaries it becomes federal.

You have members of a city council desiring that their state become a sanctuary state.

You'd think that they would know better.

Members of a CITY council "think" they know what is best for the state. You can't make this crap up. In case anyone is still wondering how Trump won the presidency............

I gave up on common sense among elected officials some time ago. Hence the reason they should be charged as co conspirators. Its time they understand that actions have consequences.

That is true to an extent.

This is why states have managed to get away with legalizing marijuana.

Some states have also nullified gun control within their borders with regard to firearms manufactured and sold within their state borders.

Sanctuary, my buttocks! You know how many droves of Californians are invading my state because of how expensive and overpopulated CA is?

You know it's getting bad when even Californians don't want to be in California anymore.

Hell, we need a wall to keep Californians out!

Yup - Its also why the DOJ said they wont go after the marijuana industry in states that legalize it for medicinal uses. They also have taken a hands off approach to states with assisted suicide laws.
