Gun-Grabbing ‘Sanctuary Lawmaker’ Admits ‘Half of My Family’ Breaking Law

Oath-breaking California politician Kevin De Léon proving he doesn’t know what he’s talking about, and using that to scare the ignorant and the fearful into more infringements on their rights.

“California State Senate President Pro Tem Kevin De Léon (D-Los Angeles) that ‘half his family’ was in the country illegally, using false documents, and eligible for deportation under President Trump’s new executive order against ‘sanctuary’ jurisdictions,” former California State Assemblyman Tim Donnelly reported on Breitbart. “De Léon, who introduced the bill, made his remarks at a hearing in Sacramento on SB54, the bill to make California a ‘Sanctuary State.’”

In addition to defending the practice of obtaining fraudulent documents and dismissing citizen concerns over identity theft, De Léon “expressed outrage” that it should be a deportable offense for foreign nationals — already here illegally – to then falsely obtain a Social Security card. That’s even though any person who “willfully, knowingly, and with intent to deceive, uses a social security account number, assigned by the Commissioner of Social Security … to establish and maintain records) on the basis of false information furnished to the Commissioner of Social Security by him or by any other person … shall be guilty of a felony and upon conviction thereof shall be fined under title 18, United States Code, or imprisoned for not more than five years, or both.”

As is typical, the law is what De Léon and his fellow California “progressives” say it is. Laws they oppose are to be disregarded. In other words, he stands for lawlessness and tyranny.

The thing is, they don’t extend that same entitlement to the non-elite citizenry. They’re too busy stripping them of their rights.  Case in point, De Léon’s oath of office was a mere ceremonial formality. Because where the Second Amendment is concerned, he never saw an infringement he didn’t like, author, co-sponsor or vote for. He’s so against guns, he’s even against guns that don’t exist (except in his ignorant and/or opportunistic mind):

De Léon said he is trying to address a twin threat from what he called “ghost guns” — plastic guns that can slip through metal detectors and unregistered weapons that can fall into the hands of people who are legally prohibited from owning firearms under state law.

He brags about his citizen disarmament “victories”:

This year, he led the charge for the most stringent gun control policies in a generation, leading efforts to approve 11 measures, including his groundbreaking bill, SB 1235, which requires background checks for anyone who buys or sells ammunition.

So it’s no surprise that when purporting to hold a community meeting on ““California’s Gun and Ammo Pipeline to the Mexican Drug Cartels,” De Léon used it as a platform to stump for more citizen disarmament, repeating the tired old lie about the preponderance of “Mexican crime guns” originating in U.S. gun shops. He dismissed Congressional investigations into ATF’s murder-abetting Operation Fast and Furious “gunwalking,” instead expressing “[deep concern] that some in Congress are more focused on distracting the Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms from their core mission and getting to the bottom of failed policies of the past.”

De Léon is living proof that unchecked immigration and a “pathway to citizenship” represents an existential threat to the nation and its Constitution.

“His mom, the single mother of three children, originally entered the country illegally and worked cleaning upscale homes for a living,” AllGov reveals.  And his politics of culturally terraforming this country into one more like the one his mother fled is hardly unique.

All credible polls – and significantly, the California experience – show the MILLIONS of foreign nationals in this country illegally (and even legally, with current culturally suicidal policies) overwhelmingly favor Democrats and anti-gunners.  That means ultimately, the legislatures will look just like California, and will be able to pass whatever citizen disarmament edicts they like, and when that happens, judges will be nominated and confirmed to uphold those edicts, and reverse gains made to date.

True, not all fit the mold.  Everyone can produce anecdotes that don’t conform to the trend. But we’re talking overall and overwhelming numbers being the threat here, and those numbers continue to hold even after so-called “assimilation”:

Such confident Democrat affinity for immigration, both legal and illegal, becomes obvious when you look at the numbers, as Pew research did in a 2012 “Political Party Affiliation among Hispanics” poll. Whether you look at all, at registered voters, at native born, foreign born, unauthorized, legal permanent residents or foreign-born US citizens, that affiliation is overwhelmingly Democrat. Refuting those who would have us believe eventual assimilation will create more political homogeneity, the lop-sidedness continues as time goes on. Only 10 percent identify as Republicans after “20 years or more.”

The United States is under no obligation to admit and include foreign national. Any immigration policy it does adopt is supposed to comport with the reasons for its existence in the first place, as articulated in the Preamble:

“…to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity…”

You can’t do that by admitting foreigners who are hostile to those ends, and by then affording them political power with which to undermine freedom at the expense of ourselves and our Posterity. And you can’t do that by letting ignorance-exploiting lies become the basis for public policy, as exemplified in the following video:
