The California movement is statewide grassroots effort to form new state
A group of Californian yellow vests has urged President Donald Trump to “take action” in ending the state’s sanctuary policy.
The meeting was held following Newman city police officer Ronil Singh‘s death, who was murdered by an illegal alien on Christmas.
The California movement is statewide grassroots effort to form a ‘golden’ state.
There have now been 47 out of the total 58 counties in California that have joined in support of the movement.
Last month, the yellow vests posed with victory signs in a cafe in the small city in Santa Clara County, expressing confidence in the future of the golden state.
The activists of the movement have been wearing yellow vests since last December “in solidarity with French citizens” against socialism and globalism.
“Mass lawlessness is now the order of the day,” reads Grievance 49 issued by the New California State movement at the Newman event, addressing officer Singh’s death.
The movement has also been filing weekly grievances to establish how California citizens’ rights have been removed by the current State government, following equivalent constitutional method under which West Virginia departed from Virginia in 1861
“I believe that SB 54 sanctuary state status has been one of the reasons why we have lost so many of our American citizens,” said Paul Preston, who was the founder of the movement.
According to EpochTimes: SB 54, which was signed into the state law by Governor Brown in Oct. 2017, limits cooperation between local law enforcement agencies and federal immigration authorities.
Many residents living in Newman City believe that SB 54 was responsible for officer Singh’s death.
Based on the information from Stanislaus Sheriff Department, the shooter who fired shots killing officer Singh, Perez Arriaga, illegally crossed the border into Arizona a few years ago and had worked as a farm laborer in the Stanislaus County area.
Arriaga has two prior DUI arrests and ties to the Sureño Street Gang.
“This [the death of Singh] is probably something that could be prevented, had not we had sanctuary state. The suspected person, in this case, was arrested prior. If they were able to provide Homeland Security and ICE with that information, he might have been deported, and we might not be standing here today,” said Newman Police Chief Randy Richardson at Singh’s funeral service on Jan. 4.
“Illegal immigrants are dangerous,” said Pritpal Sinhm Gosain, who is a Sikh immigrant, and a resident of the nearby city Patterson. Gosain came to join the yellow vests gathering because he shares a similar cultural background with officer Singh.
“We are here to honor our officer Cpl. Singh, who was murdered by an illegal immigrant,” said Paul Taylor, one of the top leaders of the New California movement. Taylor said that he joined a protest against SB 54 last March.
Taylor said SB 54 allows illegal immigrants are coming to the United States to cause harm, while not having a way to vet them. SB 54 has made the United States lose its sovereignty, he said.
The grievance issued by New California movement claims that California has violated U.S. Constitution Article IV, Section 4, which is known as the “Guarantee Clause.”
This section in the U.S. Constitution requires that the state and federal governments must provide the citizens of the United States a republican form of government, protect them against invasion, and protect them against domestic violence.
The grievance alleges that the sanctuary state policy made by the current “mono-party” system in California has failed to provide California citizens with what was required by the “Guarantee Clause” of the Constitution.
The movement calls the sanctuary policies designed by the current state’s “mono-party” system “acts of insurrection against the U.S. Constitution.”
Under California’s sanctuary state policy, “we are going to see Singh’s case happen over, over, and over again,” said Preston at Singh’s funeral service.
The grievance also stated that the current California State “attempt to destroy the State of California and break down the sovereignty of the Union of States of America” by utilizing Marxist-Leninist and Maoist revolutionary tactics.
The movement urges President Trump take proper actions, based on the Insurrection Act of 1807, to stop sanctuary state policies in California.
