Democrat leaders of the California Legislature announced Wednesday that they had hired Eric Holder to represent them against the expected battles with the Trump White House. The state’s got lots of other people’s money to fatten the wallet of their intimate friend and communist comrade, Mr. Holder.
Kevin de Leon, the Democrat leader of the State Senate, said, “Having the former attorney general of the United States brings us a lot of firepower in order to prepare to safeguard the values of the people of California. This means we are very, very serious.”
They’d better be serious, because the Trump administration is serious as are the American people. Federal law applies to immigration, not state law, so they can expect to pay Mr. Holder a lot of money to file motions which are rejected for lack of standing.
De León expects California to challenge Washington in federal matters related to the environment, immigration and criminal justice. He said California Democrats opted to retain Holder when it became apparent that Mr. Trump intended to follow through on his campaign promises.
He said, “It was very clear that it wasn’t just campaign rhetoric. He was surrounding himself with people who are a very clear and present danger to the economic prosperity of California.” You just keep right on using that type of distorted logic, de Leon, be sure to include it in the arguments of every filing.
Last month Gov. Jerry Brown appointed former House Representative Xavier Becerra as state attorney general to succeed Kamala D. Harris, who was elected to the US Senate.
As an illustration of just how far gone the state of California is, the Democrat Party controls two-thirds of both the Senate and Assembly, with every statewide elected official being a Democrat.
Mr. de León said the final compensation for the firm had not been set, but would be publicly disclosed once it was. In an indication that it’s going to be steep, in the range of “name your price and I’ll sign the check,” he said, “The cost will be very minimal compared to the billions of dollars at stake if California doesn’t adequately make its case.”
These guys must really like Mexican criminals to go through all of this effort and expense to keep them here illegally.
