Bill O'Reilly and Ruben Navarrette on the California "Sanctuary State" Bill
By: Bill O'ReillyAugust 10, 2017

There are some typically bizarre stories out of California.  First, there is a movement among some citizens to secede from the United States.  While that is not going to happen, there is a very real chance that California will enact a law making it a "sanctuary state."  "California is basically saying we don't want to have anything to do with the federal government," Bill groused, "and we don't care if illegal aliens commit crimes." 

On that note, Bill welcomed California-based syndicated columnist Ruben Navarrette, who provided the latest on the "sanctuary state" bill.  "This will pass the assembly," he predicted, "and the only question is whether Governor Brown will sign the bill.  He is scared, he doesn't want the Democratic Party to be tagged as soft on illegal immigration.  He's trying to have it both ways, like a lot of Democrats on immigration." 

Navarrette scoffed at his fellow Californians who want to depart the union.  "This is a lot less serious than the first issue, it not going to happen.  This is 100% anti-Trump and a symbolic gesture by the left."  Navarette then tried to explain how California went so far off the rails:  "It's because of the power of public sector unions that own and control the Democratic Party.  Also, Republicans have done crazy things on immigration that scared off Latinos and put us in the Democratic camp.  The public sector unions have bankrupted the state."
