Legislation introduced Tuesday would give about 400,000 undocumented immigrants in California the same rights as citizens to unemployment benefits and various other government services.

Gov. Jerry Brown signed legislation, effective Jan. 1, that enables participants in the federal program to obtain California driver's licenses. AB 35 would provide them with rights to a state ID card, unemployment benefits and state-administered medical services.
AB 35 was proposed by Assemblyman Roger Hernández, a West Covina Democrat who was named chairman of the Assembly Labor and Employment Committee this month.
"California embodies the greatest diversity in the world," Hernández said in a written statement. "We recognize we will need the collective skills and talents of these young immigrants to aid out state in reaching our true potential."
As labor committee chairman, Hernández said, "I am ready to carry my part in making sure their integration into our workforce, economy and society becomes a reality."
So that what racialists like this A-hole think is happening in California - we're 'reaching our true potential'?
Utterly hilarious - to anyone who doesn't live here.
Santa Claus to the world
ReConquista takes money and soldiers.
Undocumented...Is that what they are calling criminals nowadays? Hey maybe I’ll not pay my taxes in April, make an undocumented withdrawal.
OMG! California is bankrupt, essentially, or so they claim, and went begging for more money from tax payers... and they do this? And taxpayers don’t get it? What is in the water there? Air? For God’s sake.
Ok, I even had to check to see if this was satire.
We need to adopt a certification process the lets states stay as members of the union. These people cant drag the people of the sane states down with them. Reverse secession (expulsion) as it were.
Where is the forehead slap guy?
Muy bueno amigo.
You can do things like this when you’re financially stable. /sarc
They already are, because they are using bogus paperwork to get their jobs. A friend who owns a construction business told me the illegals collect unemployment when they get laid off from one job, change their name, and get a new job while continuing to collect unemployment under the previous name.
The legislation will die, because federal law doesn’t allow states to pay unemployment to illegal aliens. However, if an illegal answers that they are a citizen, then their status isn’t even checked. So fraud goes on . . . .
Why doesn't anybody in the MSM revisit that topic?
What do we do when California begs for money from the rest of us? My vote goes for them and Ill to pound sand.
So, they need an overabundance of 6th grade dropout janitors and gardeners and dishwashers, etc. to achieve the glory of Mexifornia??? HAHAHAHA!!!!
Kaliforina, home of the Homeless & Illegal Immigrant.
Just as long as illegal aliens dont get them...
Hernandez, if you want to integrate them into the work force, give them work visas. If you want to bankrupt California, give them unemployment payments.
oh wait, California is already bankrupt.
Perhaps it is Hernandez that should be given unemployment benefits.
Our tragic national suicide continues.
“Legislation introduced Tuesday would give about 400,000 undocumented immigrants in California the same rights as citizens to unemployment benefits and various other government services.”
Give them those “same rights”, and the next thing you know, it won’t be 400,000 taking advantage of them, it will be 4 million....
And after that.... ??
