Why is liberal California the poverty capital of America?

It’s not as though California policymakers have neglected to wage war on poverty. Sacramento and local governments have spent massive amounts in the cause. Several state and municipal benefit programs overlap with one another; in some cases, individuals with incomes 200% above the poverty line receive benefits. California state and local governments spent nearly $958 billion from 1992 through 2015 on public welfare programs, including cash-assistance payments, vendor payments and “other public welfare,” according to the Census Bureau. California, with 12% of the American population, is home today to about one in three of the nation’s welfare recipients.

The generous spending, then, has not only failed to decrease poverty; it actually seems to have made it worse.

MAGA vs. DACA: How Trump Supporters Trumped Bleeding Heart Liberals on Late Night TV

Last week, Jimmy Kimmel, the late-night talk show host with a terminal case of Trump Derangement Syndrome, wanted to host a segment with voters who oppose DACA. To find willing guests, ABC casting had reached out to me and fellow Trump supporters to appear on the show. At first, I was reluctant. Kimmel uses every shame-inducing prop imaginable to attack President Trump and conservatives in general. I reached out to a friend and fellow activist, Robin Hvidston, director of We the People Rising, for advice. She encouraged me to go with her and four others: Chanell Temple, Wes Parker, Lorie Masonas, and Celeste Grieg. All of us know each in other conservative circles throughout Southern California.

After a brief “rehearsal,” we finally met Jimmy Kimmel who interviewed each of us about the program. I told him that nearly 50% of DACA recipients are fraudulent, and illegals commit proportionally more crime than Americans. He finished our brief interview with: “I want you to meet somebody.”

Latino Civil Rights Group “Caves” to Pressure from “DREAMers,” Withdraws Support for White House Amnesty

The president of the League of United Latin American Citizens (LULAC) has retracted a letter he sent to President Trump endorsing the White House’s proposal for an amnesty of 1.8 million illegal aliens.

Roger Rocha Jr., President of LULAC blames “bad timing” for the backlash to the letter, noting that it was sent before the State of the Union.  Many open border groups and illegal alien activists have called for Rocha Jr. to resign as the president of LULAC. From their point of view, anything short of a clean and comprehensive amnesty, with no enforcement provisions or changes to family chain migration, is unacceptable.
