Newsom Threatens DeSantis with Kidnapping Charges After Illegal Immigrants Flown to Sacramento

Newsom Threatens DeSantis with Kidnapping Charges After Illegal Immigrants Flown to Sacramento

The response to CA Gov. Gavin Newsom’s tweet-screed against Florida’s governor have been overwhelmingly supportive…of Ron DeSantis

I would like to take a moment to recall that moment in history when Sacramento Democrats, drunk on an anti-Trump whine, decided it would be a great idea to declare California a “Sanctuary State.”

State Bill 54 was signed by California Governor Jerry Brown on October 5, 2017, and it created statewide sanctuary for those who may be living in the state as illegal aliens. The new law includes the following provisions:

  • State and local police officers now are prohibited from inquiring about an individual’s immigration status during the routine course of their work.
  • State and local officers are forbidden from holding illegal immigrants until they can be transferred into federal custody.
  • Federal agencies are prohibited from commandeering local authorities to work with immigration agencies and perform the work of immigration agents.

They patted themselves on their back for being tolerant, good, and non-orange.

However, actions have consequences. In the wake of the massive wave of illegal immigrants crashing into our southern borders, other states have decided to take California at its word.

A flight carrying about 20 migrants landed in Sacramento, California, on Monday as state authorities investigated the role Florida had played in transporting them from Texas via New Mexico, according to the California attorney general’s office and news reports.

The migrants carried documents that indicated their transportation involved the state of Florida, the California attorney general’s office said. More than a dozen migrants who arrived on Friday carried similar documentation, the office said.

The administration of Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, a Republican seeking his party’s presidential nomination in 2024, last year orchestrated a flight carrying dozens of migrants from Texas to Martha’s Vineyard, a liberal Massachusetts vacation island, which critics called a political stunt.

A political stunt? It seems to me that if California’s leaders are complaining about this move, then the declaration of a “Sanctuary State” is a political stunt…which is now backfiring.

Governor Gavin Newsom is so upset he has accused Florida Ron DeSantis of orchestrating the flight of immigrants and appears to threaten his Florida counterpart with kidnapping charges.

Gov. Gavin Newsom took a jab at Ron DeSantis on Monday, calling for kidnapping charges against the Florida governor after two group of migrants were dropped off in Sacramento.

Newsom took to Twitter saying, “@RonDeSantis you small, pathetic man. This isn’t Martha’s Vineyard. Kidnapping charges?”

He included a screenshot that included a portion of the kidnapping penal code from the California Legislative Information’s website.

Rob Bonta, California’s attorney general, said Floria was guilty of “state-sanctioned kidnapping.”

Bonta, meanwhile, also said Florida was guilty of “state-sanctioned kidnapping” if it was found to be behind the flights. He told the New York Times the migrants showed documents to California authorities that indicated their travel had been administered by the Florida division of emergency management and its contractor, Vertol Systems Company. Vertol Systems is the same contractor hired last year by Florida’s department of emergency management to move migrants from Texas to Massachusetts for $1.6m.

“While we continue to collect evidence, I want to say this very clearly: state-sanctioned kidnapping is not a public policy choice, it is immoral and disgusting,” Bonta said in the statement.

Interestingly, the response to Newsom’s tweet has been overwhelmingly supportive… of DeSantis.

Newsome is concerned that the illegals may have been under the false impression that he hadn’t really transformed California into one great big feces depository.

On a similar note:

“The Bexar County Sheriff’s Office has filed a criminal case with the Bexar County District Attorney’s Office in connection with the transportation of 49 migrants from San Antonio to Martha’s Vineyard in September 2022 by Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis’ administration.”

Lawfare. The process will be the punishment.

There are 80,000 missing unaccompanied illegal alien children and ANYONE is worried about 20 illegal alien adults that signed a document to be flown on a private jet?

How does kidnapping occur when one consents to be transported to sanctuary?

And if Newsom is going to allege charges can be laid if an act is deemed a crime in his state, doesn’t that mean he best not travel to Florida lest he be found in violation of local laws of some crime or another? The standard he’s pushing could be used to convict himself!

Guess I’m confused. All this time I thought it was Brandon flying and bussing illegals all over the country.

Governor Hair Gel…I thought your Aunt Nancy stayed that these illegals were needed to pick crops and mow lawns? Oh wait! You destroyed agriculture in Commiefornia and all the lawn jobs were already taken. What’s a political hack to do?

Newsom is loathsome. God save the Republic if this floating turd ever reaches national office.

    If you like the new San Francisco, you will LOVE Newsome!!! Poop on the streets all over America!! Yay!!!

      Hey wendybar, since the largest hotel in San Fran just pulled up stakes and abandoned it there will be plenty of rooms for the homeless and illegals to destroy.

Should Chris Christie rise in the polls, Newsom can accuse him of the Lindbergh kidnapping.

Rupert Smedley Hepplewhite | June 6, 2023 at 7:37 am

Florida has more coastline than California, therefore we could provide a plethora of sand Gavin could pound.

So, Rob Bonta runs to Newsome’s office saying, “Hey, boss, I have an idea for you to smack DeSantis with and you can gain control of a new narrative on Twitter.” “Let’s accuse that small, pathetic man of kidnapping! What do you think?” “I like it!” says the Sacramento clown.

“CHAPTER 3. Kidnapping 207 (d) Every person who, being out of this state, abducts or takes by force or fraud any person contrary to the law of the place where that act is committed, and brings, sends, or conveys that person within the limits of this state, and is afterwards found within the limits thereof, is guilty of kidnapping.”

How would a CA state law apply to the governor of FL?

It doesn’t appear to be against the law in FL to eject illegals.

What’s Newsome gonna do? Wait until DeSantis has a campaign event in CA and try to arrest him?

    He might be able to do exactly that. More likely, ever since the Lindberg kidnapping, it involves Federal crimes, especially when it involves crossing state lines. I expect to see the CoupBI involved eventually.

Fantastic! And just how does Governor Hairdo expect to enforce this? Send CA agents to Florida to extradite the governor? Good luck with that! Or maybe he could enlist the aid of his leftist compatriots in the Blue Cheka (fka FBI). (As far as I can tell the US Marshals have, so far, avoided being co-opted into the central tyranny’s dreams of having a Stasi.) Then we can have the ultimate test to see if a Red State has the fortitude to go full “Virginia and Kentucky Resolutions” on the Feds. I’d even kick in a few bucks to see “Blue Cheka vs. FL State Police” on Pay Per View.

I think the problem with a kidnapping charge is that these people volunteered for transport to sanctuary.

Florida has a new law against employing illegals and they would have a problem finding work in Florida.
I am certain there are thousands of illegals who would love a free flight to California.

So kidnapping by fraud is likely not possible.

Human trafficking charges are a better fit.

    CommoChief in reply to docduracoat. | June 6, 2023 at 2:12 pm

    Volunteering eliminates the needed elements of force, coercion or fraud which are necessary for any charge of kidnapping or human trafficking. It isn’t as if the kids being sold into slavery are voluntarily agreeing to work in sweatshops or to be pimped out as sex workers.

    FL is being careful to get volunteers who want to travel to X destination before sending them. They get all sorts of I dotted T crossed documentation to cover their actions b/c they are aware of this sort of BS claim being made.

Every time Newsom speaks, I like DeSantis more.

In 2006, when he was Mayor of San Francisco, Newsom had a drunken in-office affair with his appointments secretary who was the wife of Alex Tourk, his best friend and campaign manager. When the press discovered the affair, Newsom blamed it on alcohol and said he was quitting drinking. Four years ago he told a reporter he was drinking again. He is a bad guy. If he betrays his best friend, he would have no problem doing that with the voters

Is it the same troll down voting almost every comment?

(d) Every person who, being out of this state, abducts or takes by force or fraud any person contrary to the law of the place where that act is committed, and brings, sends, or conveys that person within the limits of this state, and is afterwards found within the limits thereof, is guilty of kidnapping.

So would someone please be kind enough to inform me which Florida state law is being violated? Because I can’t find a FL statute that states that it is illegal to round up illegal aliens within the state of Florida and transport them to another state.

“This isn’t Martha’s Vineyard”

That’s right, it’s Odette Estate Winery, Gavin’s model “rich boy” Vineyard.

Shouldn’t Gavin be selling off his business assets? Because those are the things the Left demanded of Trump.

Image of the homeless camp imbedded upthread? That’s probably the nicest “homeless” camp in California. The “homeless” camp not far from my house is heaped with stinking refuse – and stripped bicycle frames and rims.

The “homeless” steal bikes for new or good tires and unpunctured tubes. Then dump the bikes 10feet from their tent “homes.”

When I say heaps of bike frames and rims, I mean scores of stripped frames and probably 150+ rims. That’s just one camp not far from my house.

The police can see the bike dump from the street.

So Newsome are you going to go after the Feds that help the illegals move to California, the various free groups that help the illegals move to California, and go after the various Transport companies that move illegals to California? It seems that if you now have an issue with Florida you have many other issues.

Everyone is not giving Gov HairGel enough credit. Didn’t he just go to Florida and visit all those former Cali people who headed for greener pastures? What other Gov has done that?

“by force or fraud”

Governors of TX and FL aren’t stupid. They are only transporting illegal aliens that have not only consented to go to the specified destination but who have ACTUALLY SIGNED WAIVERS declaring so.

Unlike, say, the federal govt that has transported hundreds of thousands to wherever they please with no consent requested or given.

Unlike the State of MA that used the National Guard to forcibly remove the illegal aliens from Martha’s Vineyard, the same one’s that signed waivers saying that’s where they wanted to go before being flown up from FL.

Unlike the cities of NY and Chicago that are transporting illegal aliens to unsuspecting communities all over their States, without the consent of those being transported – or even bothering to advise the mayors of the towns they are sending them to.

But, N.B., its only “news” when an R governor sends a bus or two, 50 people per bus. Its NEVER news when D’s transport thousands, tens of thousands, or hundreds of thousands. No mention at all when they do it.
