Californians who may think that the state’s immigration crisis is as bad as it can get should hold on to their hats. The extensive alien entitlement list which includes the Trust Act that exempts most illegal aliens from deportation, AB 60 that allows illegal aliens to obtain driver’s licenses and SB 4 which allows illegal immigrants to access Medi-Cal is about to grow longer.

After years of ludicrous accusations that enforcing federal immigration laws breaks up aliens’ families, Americans can now plainly see that Mexican and Central American parents are not only willing but eager to split up in exchange for the lure of permanent legal residency in the United States.

Last week I received a direct mail missile from a group I had never encountered before called the Senior Citizens League (www.seniorsleague.org).
