California: the land of nuts and flakes and loony politicians is at it again. Los Angeles' Huntington Park City Council has appointed two undocumented illegals to serve on the committee. (A move naturally supported by City Mayor Karina Macias). A legal citizen rightly yelled to the assembled councilmembers: “You are out of order.” Despite that, Councilman Jhonny Pineda, who joined the organization in March, specifically chose illegal aliens Frank Medina (health and education) and Julian Zatarain (parks and recreation) as political payback for working on his election campaign. Another woman said: “We’re sending the wrong message: you can be illegal and you can come and work for the city.” Well, they won't technically be paid as that is prohibited by federal law. On balance though the Feds have no authority to determine city policy.
Mr. Pineda, whose actions already demonstrate he is not among the law-abiding, promises that his illegal appointees will have "no power" to determine city policy. Therefore, their purpose must be a pro-illegal alien political statement as well as warm bodies to rubber stamp what is likely to be Mr. Pineda's lawless agenda. He said: “We need to make sure that we bring everyone together to the table here in Huntington Park so that we can make sure we’re sharing the same vision.” The contours of that vision remain unclear other than the fact that Mr. Pineda on the campaign trail promised voters that he'd create opportunities for that city's sizable undocumented population. One hopes that Mr. Pineda will not forget the needs of actual citizens in his fervor to socially engineer the community to his dystopian design.
