Topic: Uber CA lib Gavin Newsom Pardons Convicted Felons to Shield Them From Deportation
Posted by .

California’s policies just get more and more nonsensical.

Their new governor, Gavin Newsom, has decided to continue former Gov. Jerry Brown’s policy of pardoning illegal immigrants convicted of serious felonies in order to undercut federal immigration enforcement. Apparently, being rightly targeted by ICE gains you a special status above U.S. citizens in his state. I’m sure there are a lot of Americans who’d love one of the clean records Newsom is handing out for political reasons.
Before we get into the details, take a look at this LA Times headline.
In a Rebuke to President Trump, Gov. Newsom Pardons Refugees Facing Deportation

Talk about whitewashing. Maybe mentioning they are felons in the headline would be prudent? Just a thought.
Here’s one of the men granted clemency by Newsom.
Hov, a naturalized citizen who arrived in the United States in 1985 as a legal refugee when he was 6, was convicted of solicitation to commit murder and participation in a criminal street gang in 2001, when he was 21, according to the Newsom administration.

The other crimes being pardoned aren’t quite as serious but are felonies nonetheless.
