Trump loses again in court. How many times? Now let's start counting up the bankruptcies, and my favorite for the religious right, casino bankruptcies. So moral! Cheating his investors, too!

Thank you SF & SC for defending the Constitution and the rule of law. Trump can't pass laws, only EO's like a little tinpot dictator.

California taxpayers send dollars to Washington to contribute to federal programs (military, courts, interstate, etc.) and to ensure that poorer states can meet federally mandated minimums - for instance, water projects, educational needs, etc. not to fund basic local welfare needs CREATED by LOCAL open door policies (SANCTUARIES) and FREE EVERYTHING policies. It isn’t ALL U.S. Taxpayers must pay for California’s excesses. If you want MORE homeless on the streets, more crime and drug issues, more overcrowding in the prisons, more competition for housing at the low end, keep endorsing the policies of those who open the gates, stop enforcing laws (still visiting S.F. in that new car?). You want migrants but you can’t provide for the needs of the desperate ALREADY here. That’s some policy! Pay for the drug addicts, the old in serious need, the honest poor, the orphans, the 65,000 foster children, the housing and transportation crises, the astronomical unfunded public liabilities, etc. that California needs before inviting the rest of central and south america to rush north.
As with the ‘homeless and drug navigation center’ - most, who advocate irresponsible policies like sanctuaries want the newcomers in somebody else’s backyard. You may have won a legal point but you won’t so easily escape the social deterioration so evident everywhere in this state.
