It looks like the Dems are about to lose their voter base.
California should have done this a long time ago but in California the voters don’t matter.
Ain't that the truth.
Pelosi and the Dimorats new they would lose a few seats at the federal level but they had NO IDEA about all of the states the have turned red...
California did do this a long time ago, but as is the norm around these parts, the courts reversed the will of the voters.

Thats been attempted before.
California Proposition 187 (1994)
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

California Proposition 187 (also known as the Save Our State (SOS) initiative) was a 1994 ballot initiative designed to create a state-run citizenship screening system in order to prohibit illegal immigrants from using health care, public education, and other social services in the U.S. State of California. The proposed law was initially passed by the voters through referendum in November 1994 but later found unconstitutional by a federal court, with appeals against the judgment being halted by Governor Gray Davis in 1999.
Proposition 187 heated up the ongoing issue of illegal immigration into the United States and the states large illegal Latino population. The law was viewed by opponents as based largely on xenophobia toward immigrants of Hispanic origin, and supporters generally insisted that their concerns were economic.
In the Golden State, the voice of the voters is ignored regularly.
It sounds like the bigger problem is lack of enforcement of EXISTING laws regarding illegals.
Rep. Hubbard is having a difficult time defending and supporting HIS bill.
Yep - that’s the example I was thinking of.
They are demanding definitions that aren’t needed and bringing up what-if scenerio.
