First for California: Undocumented Immigrant Appointed to Gov't Post

First for California: Undocumented Immigrant Appointed to Gov't Post

In a first-of-its-kind decision, the state of California appointed an undocumented immigrant to a statewide post.

Lizbeth Mateo, 33, was appointed to a committee that advises the California Student Aid Commission, even though it is illegal to hire an undocumented immigrant.

The state of California allows undocumented immigrants to practice law, get a driver's license, receive in-state tuition and receive some welfare benefits. The state will pay the person's legal fees if arrested.

A private company can still be fined by federal authorities for employing an illegal immigrant.

Mateo will not be a salaried employee, but California state policy entitles her to reimbursement for expenses - meaning that the state and taxpayers will be paying her although it is against federal law.

The appointment of Mateo seemingly further affirms California's sanctuary state status and resistance to President Donald Trump.

Mateo, 33, is a Mexican-born attorney and immigrant rights activist who came to the United States with her parents at age 14. She graduated from the Santa Clara University School of Law in 2016 and passed the California state bar exam in 2017.

Why do I get sick to my stomach when I read stuff like that? You would think I might be numb by now.

Don't worry Tom! There will be a time of reckoning and it will get worse before it gets better. Just stand fast on your principles!

Tom, I suggest you get the hell out of there before the SHTF, the wall gets built and you have to take an IQ test to be allowed to enter the 49 remaining states again.

I've been thinking ... what if we all went to the East side of the St. Andres fault and pushed really, really hard to the West? ....hey, it might work.

I compare watching the news these days to watching a really bad train wreck....you know what you are about to see is going to be bad but you watch anyway and it doesn't disappoint. Just when you think our country has hit rock bottom, another day brings a new low. All the values that this country was founded on are being trashed. It feels like its a bad dream you can't wake up from. There are so many wrongs being committed I can't keep up. What the hell is happening to our country!!!

I fear for my grandchildren!
