California Governor Jerry Brown, succumbing to the forces of political correctness, signed a bill into law on August 10 that bans the word “alien” from the Golden State’s labor laws. The measure, SB 432, notes that “Existing law defines ‘alien’ as any person who is not a born or fully naturalized citizen of the United States.”
The Obama administration has extended amnesty from deportation to 664,607 illegal aliens by means of executive orders. This has been done through the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrival (DACA) program, which began in 2012.
U.S. District Judge Andrew Hanen of the U.S. District Court in Brownsville, Texas, who issued an injunction on February 16 blocking President Obama’s executive action to grant amnesty to four million illegal aliens, issued an order on July 7 in which he berated the Obama administration for reneging on its May 7 promise to take “immediate steps” to remedy its violations of his injunction, and he set a hearing for August 19, at which each defendant “must attend and be prepared to show why he or she should not be held in contempt of Court.”
