I once believed government officials represented U.S. citizens; they were “government of the people, by the people, for the people.” Yet Gov. Jerry Brown signed laws allowing noncitizens to serve as poll workers, to apply for professional state licenses, to obtain driver’s licenses, in-state tuition, student loans, and legal aid for thousands of undocumented illegally in this state. This will attract more noncitizens who will use California resources while greatly burdening those who pay taxes and taking jobs from U.S. citizens.
When the president of Mexico visited California, Brown did not attempt to secure the release of a U.S. soldier who took a wrong exit into that country.
Congresswoman Lois Capps said she will work for the middle class, but why weren’t promises she further made not done during her 16 years in office?
Incumbents in office for many years have forgotten they “serve” people of the United States, not to fulfill their ambitions or to “play God.”
We need a new infusion of representatives with common sense and principles to ensure that the “government of the people, by the people, for the people shall not perish from the earth.”
