    When police in Huntington Park shut down Pacific Boulevard in anticipation of the celebrations, fans moved one block over. CBS2 captured video as crowds shut down the intersection of Rita and Saturn avenues while a car did donuts. Rocks and eggs were thrown at patrol cars. One man was arrested on several charges. Dozens of people also hit the streets of Pacoima, celebrating at the intersection of Van Nuys and Laurel Canyon boulevards. A watch commander at the sheriff’s East L.A. station confirmed that extra units were deployed, but refused to go into further detail. There were no reported injuries. All...

    JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) — More than a dozen states banded together Monday to ask the U.S. Supreme Court to block a California law requiring any eggs sold there to come from hens that have space to stretch out in their cages. In a lawsuit filed directly to the high court, the states allege that California's law has cost consumers nationwide up to $350 million annually because of higher egg prices since it took effect in 2015. The lawsuit argues that California's requirements violate the U.S. Constitution's interstate commerce clause and are pre-empted by federal law. A federal appeals court...

    California Senate leader Kevin de León will hire two outside firms to look into allegations of a widespread culture of sexual harassment in the state Capitol. De León announced Monday he has hired the law office of Amy Oppenheimer to conduct an external investigation into harassment and assault allegations, and the consulting firm CPS HR Consulting to review Senate policies on harassment, discrimination and retaliation. De León also sent letters to lobbyists in the Capitol community detailing how existing rules protect non-employees. "There's always more employers can do to protect their employees," De León said in a statement. "Everyone deserves...

    There are two kinds of people who support the Calexit movement. People living in California who think that their state would be far better off without being hitched to the rest of the union, and people living in every other state who can’t wait to get rid of California.I’d wager that latter of those two know something that most Calexit supporters in California do not. They know that the golden state is a toxic influence on the rest of the country. It’s become a breeding ground for leftists ideologies, and the people who believe those ideologies have run the...

    "Kevin de León says Trump law enforcement policy based on 'principles of white supremacy' Patrick McGreevy APRIL 21, 2017, 12:42 P.M.California officials reacted with defiance Friday to a threat by federal officials to withhold some $20 million in criminal justice grants from the state and its counties as part of the dispute over so-called sanctuary city policies. “It has become abundantly clear that Atty. Gen.

  • It's Official: Clinton's Popular Vote Win Came Entirely From California

    Investor's Business Daily ^ | 12/16/2016 | John Merline
    Democrats who are having trouble getting out of the first stage of grief — denial — aren't being helped by the fact that, now that all the votes are counted, Hillary Clinton's lead in the popular vote has topped 2.8 million, giving her a 48% share of the vote compared with Trumps 46%. To those unschooled in how the United States selects presidents, this seems totally unfair. But look more closely at the numbers and you see that Clinton's advantage all but disappears. As we noted in this space earlier, while Clinton's overall margin looks large and impressive, it is...

    Latinos outnumber non-Hispanic whites in California, according to the most recent figures released by the Census Bureau showing that in July 2014 there were 15 million Hispanics in the state compared with 14.9 million non-Hispanic whites. Roberto Suro, the director of the Tomas Rivera Policy Institute at USC, said that the most recent figures represent "the official acknowledgement" of a process that has been under way for almost a generation. The number of Latinos in the United States currently stands at about 55.4 million and California and Los Angeles County have the largest percentages of Hispanics of any state or...

In the late 1950s, the largest flows involving California were all inflows to the state, generally from states in the Midwest or Northeast. This pattern contrasted with the flows in the late 1990s, where nearly all of the largest migration streams involving California represented out-migration to other states.
  • Buchanan Calls For Tougher Border Control; Candidate Wants to End `Invasion of the Country'

    Republican presidential contender Patrick J. Buchanan chided President Clinton and the GOP-controlled Congress yesterday for failing to secure U.S. borders and endorsed legislation that would deny automatic citizenship to children of illegal immigrants. Buchanan also called for legislation making English the country's official language and for at least a doubling of the Border Patrol. And he called anew for two other components of his immigration policy: a double security fence along the most porous section of the U.S-Mexico border and a five-year moratorium on virtually all immigration so that newcomers to the United States could be assimilated.

    Gov. Jerry Brown has signed legislation creating a new loan program for undocumented students in California’s public universities. California has already taken several steps to make college more affordable for undocumented students, including extending in-state tuition to undocumented immigrants who graduate from California high schools and making them eligible to apply for Cal Grant scholarships.

    The crisis is sparking heated debate in Washington, where critics claim the Obama administration’s immigration policies are to blame, including the DREAM Act, which defers deportation for some children. Nearby residents who oppose the Escondido center said they’re concerned it will hurt property values, increase crime and cause other problems. But some also decried the idea of federal tax dollars being used for such purposes, especially in their city. “We want our City Council and the Planning Commission to push back to the federal government and adhere to the laws,” said Kitty Demry, who lives about a one-third of a...

    VISALIA -- A 30-year-old Watsonville man was sentenced Wednesday to 50 years to life in prison after he pleaded no contest to killing his wife, the Porterville Recorder reported. Rafael Mendoza killed the mother of his children, 24-year-old Juliana Bravo of Tulare, on May 22, 2010, prosecutors said. He stabbed her in the eye, then repeatedly slashed her throat with a butcher knife, the Recorder reported. At the time of the murder, Mendoza was on parole for domestic violence against Bravo. He had been sentenced to 35 years to life in that case. In September 2013, Mendoza pleaded no contest...

    Gov. Jerry Brown on Thursday signed a bill that will temporarily require overtime pay for domestic workers in California, after he vetoed a broader measure last year that critics said would have opened the door for government regulation of part-time baby-sitting. "Domestic workers are primarily women of color, many of them immigrants, and their work has not been respected in the past," the bill's author, Democratic Assemblyman Tom Ammiano of San Francisco, said in a statement. "Now, they will be entitled to overtime, like just about every other California working person."
