Mexican Greatness: California Elected Leaders Head South

By Lloyd Billingsley| January 17, 2018

California on January 1 officially became a sanctuary state, refusing to hand over those who violated U.S. immigration laws to federal Immigration and Customs Enforcement. Economist and actor Ben Stein sees a rebellion and expects a civil war . . . in the courts. Meanwhile, the “Calexit” movement wants a sovereign nation or “an independent country.” But that’s not exactly what state leaders have in mind.

Last week, Assembly Speaker Anthony Rendon, a Los Angeles Democrat, headed a delegation of fellow partisans on a four-day trip to Mexico. “There is no sensible place for barriers between California and Mexico,” Rendon proclaimed. “This trip will send a message that California resists isolation and is willing to step up and work with Mexico if the federal administration abdicates that responsibility.”

This revealing statement was not a departure from the vision of speaker Rendon, who earned a Ph.D. in political science at University of California, Riverside and conducted post-graduate work at Boston University. On November 9, 2016, one day after Donald Trump’s election, Rendon and State Senate Pro Tem, Kevin de Leon (who also happens to have authored the sanctuary state legislation) released a joint statement claiming “we woke up feeling like strangers in a foreign land.”   :snip:
