This week, California heard from citizens on a bill that would restrict local and state police from helping central government agencies to enforce immigration laws.
Lupe Moreno of Redding, California spoke out against SB-54, which is currently moving through the California state senate, and claimed it would endanger people in the Golden State, especially its children.
“I’m also representing the angel mothers whose children have been slaughtered in our communities, especially cities like Salinas, Cali., and Santa Ana, Cali,” Moreno began.
“Article VI, Section 4 of the United States shall guarantee to every state in the nation a republican form [of government] and shall protect each against invasion and domestic violence,” Moreno stated.
This is true, but it is the citizen militia who are “to execute the Laws of the Union, suppress Insurrections, and repel Invasions” (Article I, Section 8, Clause 15).
“Our beautiful children have been sacrificed at the altar of elected officials and non-profits as we can see how many non-profits are making money off of our dead children,” she continued. “I have it on good authority, our side wins! Even with all that that you have, our side wins, because you have weeping mothers not only in California but throughout the United States now. It’s not here, it’s everywhere now.”
“Stop trying to blur the difference between illegal and legal,” she thundered. “There’s a big difference. We’re Americans – we live the American culture and we have the American spirit. We don’t steal, we don’t lie and we don’t take other people’s things.”
Moreno also spoke of the traumatic effects of illegal alien violence against the citizens of California that last long after the illegal is deported. Then she testified that she had been a victim of an illegal immigrant.
“I am a victim of illegal immigration. I was molested as a child – as I know that you were Richard,” she said, speaking to one of the board members. “How dare you side with the other side, how dare you. I was pregnant by 14. I had five children by the time I was 22 – by an illegal alien. And I married him. So my city is a ‘Sanctuary city.’ I live in fear, horror and terror.”
“We’re going to plaster our dead children’s pictures all over the state and we’re gonna let them know what government elected officials have let the slaughter of our children happen in California and all these cities,” she added. “It’s a disgrace, a total disgrace. I ask you to vote ‘no’ on 54.”
