California’s ‘Sanctuary State’ Governor Upset Migrants Were Sent Here for Sanctuary

In 2018, Newsom told President Trump: ‘California will remain a sanctuary state, and your attempt to intimidate will not stop us’

California’s sanctuary state Governor Gavin Newsom and Attorney General Rob Bonta were quick to blame Florida Governor Ron DeSantis for Friday’s migrant flight into Sacramento, and then accused  Florida of “state-sanctioned kidnaping” for transporting migrants from the Texas border to a Sacramento church.

However, when he was still Lieutenant Governor, Newsom proudly declared and reaffirmed California’s sanctuary state status after the Trump Justice Department threatened to charge state or local officials who enforced sanctuary policies protecting illegal immigrants.

As California Lieutenant Governor, Newsom issued a warning to the Trump administration a Tweet. “Let me be clear, @realDonaldTrump: California is a sanctuary state. We believe in the power of diversity. We have defied and resisted the xenophobic, hateful policies of your administration at every turn. We will do it again.”

And he posted a video on Facebook saying, “California will remain a sanctuary state, and your attempt to intimidate will not stop us.”

So which is it Gov. Newsom – is California a Sanctuary State which welcomes illegal immigrants and releases them from custody? Or are you sending them back in disgust?

Is all of this bravado and bluster grandstanding for future Democrat voters? Newsom is clearly running for President, and Bonta has announced he wants to be the next California Governor.

As for the two flights into Sacramento, there still is uncertainty if Gov. Ron DeSantis is actually behind the flights. Thus far, all reports about the illegal immigrant planes appear to be speculation, and DeSantis is mum.

Governors DeSantis and Greg Abbott (Texas) have sent planes with illegal immigrants to sanctuary cities Chicago, New York, and Martha’s Vineyard to share in the housing and care of the migrants they claim to want sanctuary for.

Democrat President Joe Biden has called this movement of mostly Latin American migrants “playing politics with people’s lives” and said it is inhumane, especially in areas such as New York City, which have services brought to the brink already because of the migrant influx, the Globe reported Monday.

However, officials from Texas and Florida, including DeSantis, have fired back that “every community in America should be sharing in the burdens.”

The federal government has also sent secret flights full of illegal immigrants into Westchester, New York in the middle of the night, stirring controversy of their own:

Leaked video shows migrants being transported on secret charter flights under the cover of night from southern border states to Westchester, New York.

“The government is betraying the American people,” a federal contractor told a Westchester County police officer in a conversation recorded on the officer’s body camera on the tarmac of a Westchester airport on Aug. 13, 2021.

Westchester Police Sgt. Michael Hamborsky asked the contractor hired to transport migrants around the country why: “You know why. Because if this gets out, the government is betraying the American people,” the contractor said.

Gov. Newsom and Sacramento Mayor Darrell Steinberg turned on the rhetoric claiming, ‘Human trafficking is not only despicable; it’s a felony. I urge authorities to investigate how 16 vulnerable people were lured from El Paso, to Sacramento. ” ‘Is there anything more cruel than using scared human beings to score cheap political points?'”

Both Steinberg and Newsom support open borders, and illegal immigration.

And it isn’t human trafficking or kidnapping to take illegals from a non-sanctuary state to a sanctuary state that claims to welcome them.

Rich with irony, Gov. Newsom has been releasing dangerous felons from state prisons, most of whom reoffend or end up living on the streets, addicted to meth and/or heroin.

Perhaps the most ironic Tweet summed up their hypocrisy best: “Lol yes you are not worried about them coming across the dessert and risking their lives but put them on a private jet and send them to your cities, now that’s a travesty.”

  1. No one is buying Gavin Newsom’s faux outrage over a few illegal migrants who were willingly sent to a city like Sacramento that Democrat Mayor Darrell Steinberg has designated as a sanctuary city. Florida and Texas should send illegals that the Biden regime has allowed into the country directly to the mansions of Gavin Newsom, Rob Bonta, Mayor Darrell Steinberg and other California open border Democrats who have made the state a sanctuary for illegal aliens. Gavin Newsom has an 8 acre estate in Fair Oaks with a 12,000 sq. ft. mansion that can accommodate many illegal migrants.

    1. That’s for sure, Samantha. And at this point the only purpose of the fright-wigged, red-bulb-nosed, giant-shoed Democrat circus clowns you’ve mentioned is to be fodder for our mockery. But even that is wearing thin. Meanwhile the empty threats these clowns spew only become emptier and more farcical with each passing day.

      What have we learned from this unfortunate political era besides “once a horse’s ass, always a horse’s ass”? Maybe that anyone who still thinks our elections aren’t rigged in light of this endless Dem clown car of state office-holders and legislators simply hasn’t been paying attention.

  2. Sacramento’s Mayor:
    ” ‘Is there anything more cruel than using scared human beings to score cheap political points?’ ”

    Did he forget how he used Stephon Clark, the homeless, and numerous others for his own political gain? The hypocrisy of the left on full display.

  3. Well whoever is sending them to Sacramento, needs to finish the job with a free shuttle to Newsom’s mansion.

    It could very well be Homeland security. Many illegal immigrants are being given court dates to appear in 2027. Guess what some of these courts they are assigned to are right here in Newsom’s beloved sanctuary state. It is all recorded and documented.

    So Newsom must know this. His faux outrage is for the cameras and nothing more!

  4. Just released video tape of these “kidnapped” illegals totally busts Newsom’s faux outrage. They are totally happy and grateful, with all formal transit consent willingly granted.

    Tread carefully Bonta. What your investigation concludes will make or break your political future, and will be use against you. One way or the other.

  5. “Newsom is clearly running for President, and Bonta has announced he wants to be the next California Governor.”

    if this comes to pass, both the Nation AND the state are DOOMED to fail…

    This paragraph is LITERALLY a description of political hell on Earth…

    PRAY that it would never be so….

    1. It won’t work. It’s Newsom himself that thinks he is popular enough to be POTUS. Outside of that dumpster fire of a state he heads he is a nobody.

      1. Problem is, @DH, is that the cancerous spread of electronic voting systems (that have back-doors for vote tabulation or ballot manipulation (as indicated on the PDF at the CA SOS website) could enable Newsom’s WEF/CCP/$oro$ et al supporters to install this tool, much like they did with the current pResident….

  6. I find it hard to express how saddened it is to witness how the demo-rat party has stolen our voices with their corrupt election process. It is the only way that they have been able to steal our liberty. Cali-4-nia is the beginning of the end of the USA unless we can find a way to take back this state from corrupt politicians like, gavin newsom, nancy pelosi, maxine waters, adam schiff and scott weiner; to name just a few.
