CA Gov. Gavin Newsom says Trump’s “Sanctuary State” immigrant relocation proposal is “asinine”
A look at Newsom’s recent, hypocrisy-filled trip to El Salvador!
Given that California’s Governor Gavin Newsom is a leading member of the #Resistance, nobody will be surprised that he called President Donald Trump’s idea of relocating illegal immigrants to sanctuary cities and state “asinine”.
California Gov. Gavin Newsom tore into President Trump’s proposal to send detained undocumented immigrants to sanctuary jurisdictions on Friday, declaring the idea “unserious,” “illegal,” “asinine” and “sophomoric,” among other things.
Mr. Trump singled California on Friday, when he declared he is seriously considering releasing undocumented immigrants into sanctuary jurisdictions. The president claimed he could release an “unlimited supply” of undocumented immigrants into Newsom’s state. California law offers safe harbor for undocumented immigrants who might otherwise be deported by federal immigration authorities.
Unlike my governor, I consider the approach a reasonable response to Sacramento’s disregard for federal law. However, I will remind President Trump that there are over 12 dozen cities that voted against the “Sanctuary State” rules imposed by our politicians…so perhaps they can be shipped to Sacramento or San Francisco directly.
Meanwhile, our governor is looking to reduce immigration…by building up the economy of another country. During a recent trip to El Salvador, not only did he smear Trump, but Newsom “focused on diversity” in an effort to help out the Golden State.
Newsom said he’s figuring out in real time what more California can do to help tackle the root causes of migration, namely deep poverty and gang violence. El Salvador is one of the world’s most violent countries, with the gangs MS-13 and Barrio 18 exerting strong control. The minimum wage is just $300 per month.
Mayor Ernesto Muyshondt of San Salvador, the capital city, said he hopes Newsom can use his political influence to halt the cuts to U.S. aid, saying cuts will halt the countries progress and could cause more people to flee.
In Newsom’s first three months in office, he has fought the Trump administration on perhaps no issue as much as immigration, suing over the president’s emergency declaration to build a southern border wall and pledging $25 million in state money to help asylum seekers.
…“How do you understand California without understanding all the diverse cultures that make it the most diverse state?” he said. “It’s fundamental it seems to me to governing a state. That’s why I’m here in the first months.”
Given this news, one might think Newsom prefers to virtue signal instead of govern. But as California reporter Katy Grimes notes, while Sacramento has banned travel to 10 U.S. states with social policies not aligned with progressives, El Salvador isn’t exactly a bastion of tolerance and acceptance.
El Salvador does not recognize same-sex marriage and civil unions are banned
According to this crowdsourced website tracking LGBT rights by country, unrecognized, same-sex marriage and civil unions are banned; transgender people can change their name but sex changes are illegal; and same-sex adoption is illegal.

Reuters reports that LGBT people flee El Salvador due to violence and threats
“Lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people are being forced to leave El Salvador, Honduras and Guatemala to escape ‘epidemic levels of violence’ and threats by criminal gangs and security forces, [Amnesty International] said in a report.”
Newsom might be shocked to learn this trip isn’t playing well among his actual constituents:
Governor Newsom, l’m so happy you enjoyed a fact finding trip to El Salvador to learn about the living conditions there. Have you ever given any thought to traveling around our state , of which you are the Governor, to learn about the actual living conditions of our citizens?

Ask your democrat politicians. Pelosi doesn’t care. Newsom went to El Salvador catering to complete illegal alien strangers, instead of taking care of his own. We have previously eradicated diseases making a comeback & feces all over the sidewalks. They won’t do a thing.

Newsom took a trip on tax-payers dollar to El Salvador to find out how he could help them to curve the influx of illegal immigrants from that country, so I don’t know what the problem is now. He wants to help them instead of Californians.

However, Newsom may be playing the long game. After all, Trump may be sending busloads of former El Salvadorans and future Democrats soon!
Donations tax deductible
to the full extent allowed by law.
The moronic Demoncrats (fascist, socialist, and communist) wanted sanctuary cities for illegal aliens. They are the perfect places to dump the illegals that Demoncrat federal judges say can’t be deported. Another perfect place for these illegals are the neighborhoods where Demoncrat and RINO appointed federal judges live.
Look up “hemorrhoid” in the dictionary and you will find Newsom’s picture.
Gavin– what happened to the inscription of the Statute of Liberty: “Give us your tired, your poor ..”. Not as important now?
This jerk and his fellow lefties have been lecturing the rest of us for years that the vast majority of illegal aliens are super hard-working, honest, law-abiding individuals of sterling character, who commit far fewer crimes than American citizens, and who are all budding class valedictorians and rocket scientists who just want the chance to become good Americans!
So why aren’t Newsom and his buddies jumping at the chance to welcome more of these virtuous folks into their cities and states?
It makes no sense! Unless Newsom and his ilk are all just a bunch of contemptible liars and hypocrites, that is.
“Gavin– what happened to the inscription of the Statute of Liberty: “Give us your tired, your poor ..”. Not as important now?”
That’s a poem written by a recent immigrant. It is nowhere in the Constitution, the Bill of Rights, or even on the statue as delivered by the French. It’s considered holy writ by proponents of mass immigration, but it is actually a bit of sentimental tripe.
& that has exactly what to do with the price of tea in China, or his point?
what happened to the inscription of the Statute of Liberty
That’s New York’s problem.
One uses the word “greasy” to describe unctuous and slick politicians, in a figurative sense, but, in the case of Newsom, the characterization is literally true.
The amount of hair dope that this guy uses is simply staggering. And, his nauseating Leftist politics aside, his slicked-back hair just comes across as totally affected. Men’s hair does not look like this, unless you are auditioning to join the cast of a TV show or movie that is set in the 1950’s.
But, that said, Newsom has the savvy and the clout to eventually win the presidency. Probably in 2024, at the end of Trump’s second term. It won’t be that hard, with the media worshipping and mythologizing him the way that they do every other Dumb-o-crat/Dhimmi-crat. Let’s do what we can to prepare ourselves and to minimize the damage that this imbecile will inevitably cause with his policies.
Vitalis v Brylcream, a little dab will do’ya.
That wasn’t nice. The guy looks like a cross between Ricky Nelson and The Penguin, what do you expect him to do?
Newsom may revel in violating civil rights, gerrymandering the vote, redistributive change, and a clear and progressive anti-nativism fueled by diversity, but Americans have grown weary of Democrat divergence.
More than weary, try outright angry. Democrats foisted Obama on us, and then tried to compound that with Hillary. They have backed the worst elements of the black community, actively promoted illegals and been cheerleaders for the Muslim invasion. Diversion of medicare money to Obamacare, bailing out and then greasing palms of those who brought us the worst recession I have seen. The list just goes on and on.
How is what President Trump proposes illegal? I believe the feds can dump asylum seekers anywhere they wish in the USA, right?
Though I suppose dumping them in Nome in winter might be cruel.
Obama dumped them in red states for vote fraud.
You’re 100% Correct!
That’s a Fact about Obama’s cruel Dumping.
So Newsom hates “undocumented immigrants”. What a surprise.
Assine? Gavin is finding his stride, a dominion of accumulated life experience! Shout it loud, damned fool.
gavin newsome, in releasing criminal illegal alien absconders into California communities instead of turning them over to ICE is in violation of California Penal Code Section 31: Aiding and Abetting. Any private person, including an illegal alien, can arrest gavin newsome per California Penal Code Section 837. Each illegal alien absconder released would incur a separate charge of 31 PC.
I think Trudeau wanted them. Send them to Canada.
I have seen it first hand, Canada already has far too many Muslims. It amazes me how so many politicians ignore what they are doing in Europe. They remind me of the lady who was malued trying to take a selfie with a jaguar. We don’t even have the muslims in cages yet.
Just another fascist under the democrat label.
I’ll pay for a seat on the bus for an illegal alien to move to Cali and live in the gov’s mansion with Gavin and his family.
Whatever one’s politics, one still has to love the Good Governor’s “Feral Cat” haircut.
Can’t we all just cat along?
So to speak.
Gutter Cats v the Jets
Newsom was looking in the mirror when he made the ‘asinine’ remark.
Trump should build his wall to protect Texas, New mexico, and Arizona. California doesn’t need a wall so save the country the money and don’t build one there.
It is more expensive to build around California, so it would make more sense to declare an invasion emergency and send solders to to drive all the illegals and their children out.
As a San Diegan, I have to disagree, Cleetus. Our San Diego wall actually does work and we need more of it. IF there is any chance of California surviving as a state, we need to continue building the wall.
Hey Cleetus … there are plenty of us Californians that want the wall … we’re not all left wing idiots pal …
