Sanctuary State signs pop up on California highways: ‘Felons, illegals and MS13 welcome!’

Thanks to a bill signed into law last October by Democratic Gov. Jerry Brown, the Sharia-compliant state of California officially became a “sanctuary state,” Fox News reported.

Marking the new law, anonymous street artists took to the highways to ring in the new year by posting messages on “Welcome to California” highway signs.

The signs were put up north of Lake Havasu, Arizona, Primm, Nevada and on Highway 95 in California and read: “OFFICIAL SANCTUARY STATE, Felons, Illegals and MS13 Welcome! Democrats Need The Votes!”

Dead accurate. Any place giving refuge to illegal aliens is an open invitation for the worst of the worst to come from around the world to live free of fear of being deported. Vigilantes from foreign countries will cross the border and seek refuge in these places. Illegal immigrant Women will fly over or cross the border pregnant to give birth and get benefits for herself and her new citizen baby. Not to mention free healthcare, child birth, wic, and you're even allowed to get your drivers license, how's that? Sounds like paradise for any non citizen. As California plunges to the highest poverty state with 1.5 trillion in debt. Crumbling dams, roads, and bridges. Graffiti everywhere you can't go for a hike without seeing it in our national forests, on rocks on boulders, creeks, trees on walls, bridges, schools trains, bathrooms. And Who needs vetting and medical screeening? As third world diseases flood into our state. Let's just inject every innocent kid with "vaccines" to keep diseases from third world countries from spreading! Say hello to your new neighbors California! Don't mind the gun shots and sirens. That's normal. You live in a high tax, high crime, police state now. Slave labor has returned to America in a different form! You pay the tab! Future permanent democrat voters! They are more important to your "leaders" than you! Don't believe me read the facts—-V https://fairus.org/issue/publications-resources/fiscal-burden-illegal-immigration-california-taxpayers #2ndamendment #backtheblue #fakenews #democrat #military #patriot #alllivesmatter #president #libtards #liberallogic #draintheswamp #supportourtroops #gun #constitution #capitalism #mikepence #teaparty #mattis #trumppence #guns #donaldtrump #freedom #liberty #veteran #prolife #goptaxscam #iran #taxplan #hillaryclinton #freeiran

It’s not clear who created the signs, but they certainly got noticed on social media:

According to Fox News:

The law bars police in the nation’s most populous state from asking people about their immigration status or participating in federal immigration enforcement activities in most cases, Fox News reported.

The Golden State is home to an estimated 2.3 million illegal immigrants.

“These are uncertain times for undocumented Californians and their families, and this bill strikes a balance that will protect public safety, while bringing a measure of comfort to those families who are now living in fear everyday,” Brown said on the day he signed the bill.

But the measure has drawn a rebuttal from an unidentified source, as signs mocking the law have appeared below the “Welcome to California” signs that greet motorists as they enter from Arizona and Nevada.

Thomas Homan, acting director of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, wasn’t impressed with the new law.

“By passing this bill, California politicians have chosen to prioritize politics over public safety,” he said.

“Disturbingly, the legislation serves to codify a dangerous policy that deliberately obstructs our country’s immigration laws and shelters serious criminal alien offenders,” his statement added.

The signs may have been intended as a joke, but California’s new law is nothing to laugh about.
