I think that bullet train leads to Venezuela. That seems to be where California is headed.
GOV. JERRY BROWN TAKES ON PRESIDENT TRUMP IN STATE OF THE STATE ADDRESS
Gov. Jerry Brown is promising in his annual State of the State address to defend California’s laws on immigration, health care and the environment in the face of the Trump administration.
In his remarks Tuesday, Brown said “California is not turning back. Not now, not ever.”
Brown says the state will defend everyone who has come to California in search of a better life.http://abc7news.com/politics/brown-takes-on-trump-in-state-of-the-state-address/1718344/
On Friday, California Governor Jerry Brown sought federal help from President Trump by asking the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) to declare “a major disaster” in California in light of the damage done by recent storms.
The East Bay Times reports: “Brown formally requested the declaration for the series of storms striking the state between Jan. 3 and Jan. 12.” He noted that “heavy rains, winds and snow, particularly in Northern California, left eight people dead and knocked out power to an estimated 1 million Californian homes and businesses.”
Brown’s request comes as Gov. Brown has challenged the Trump administration on climate change, immigration, Obamacare, and other issues.
Other Democrat officials in California have been open about their refusal to comply with Trump administration orders regarding illegal immigration. San Francisco’s police chief, sheriff, and mayor all made clear they would not enforce Trump’s immigration order, long before the order was taken to court. The San Francisco Police Department went so far as to cut ties with an FBI counter-terrorism task force in order to prevent officers from being involved in action that targeted illegals.
