Governor threatens to build wall around California if Trump becomes president

What Gov. Jerry Brown, D-Calif., just promised to do if GOP front-runner Donald Trump becomes president may turn out to be the most persuasive pro-Trump argument conservatives have received this election cycle.

During an event in Sacramento, Calif., yesterday, Brown told labor unions that with Trump in the White House, they would “have to build a wall around California to defend ourselves from the rest of this country,” according to local area newspaper The Sacramento Bee.

Sincere apologies go out to any right-wingers still left in the beautiful state.

Immediately following the statement, Brown used a line from Hillary Clinton’s talking points which said, “That is a joke. We don’t like walls, we like bridges.”

Brown refers to the building of a wall around California, which has become a sort of liberal utopia, as a way to mock one of Trump’s most favorable policy positions to seal off the Mexican-American border in order to end illegal immigration and the flow of drug trafficking into the country.

For California, illegal immigration and Mexican cartel drug trafficking is one of the state’s biggest problems that has gone unaddressed by liberal policies, and sometimes even promoted.

The state has one of the largest illegal immigrant populations, coming in at around 3 million, and costing taxpayers in the state $25.3 billion a year for social services for illegals, according to research by the Federation for Immigration Reform.

To educate illegal immigrant children alone in the state of California, including expanded English language programs, costs taxpayers $14.4 billion annually; another $4 billion in tax dollars pays for the medical expenses of illegal immigrants in the state.
