Contrary to the messaging of the White House and his Democratic colleagues, California Gov. Gavin Newsom acknowledged in an interview that his “sanctuary” state is being overwhelmed by illegal aliens.
Newsom recently approved funding for new social programs for the migrants, but he told ABC News that “what we’ve got right now is not working, and it’s about to break in a post-42 world unless we take some responsibility and ownership.”
His reference was to the lifting of the Trump administration policy Title 42, which allows for the immediate expulsion of migrants who come from a country with a communicable disease outbreak.
“And I’m saying that as a Democrat, I’m not saying that to point fingers, I’m saying that as a father, I’m saying that as someone that feels responsible for being part of the solution and I’m trying to do my best here,” Newsom said.
Meanwhile, Border Patrol agents confronted Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas during a recent visit to El Paso, Texas, an agent in the room told the Daily Caller News Foundation.
A colleague, the agent said, accused Mayorkas of making empty promises about addressing the illegal immigration surge, falsely insisting that the border is “secure” and lambasting the force.
Newsom told ABC the federal government is sending migrants to California because of the good treatment his state gives them.
“The more we do, the burden is placed disproportionate on us,” he said.
He said there are nine migrant facilities on the California border that have breached their capacity.
“We can’t continue to fund all of these sites because of the budgetary pressures now being placed on this state and the offsetting issues that I have to address,” Newsom said.
In August, however, as The Blaze noted, Newsom signed a law expanding health care benefits to cover more illegal immigrants.
And in January, he called for universal health care for all in his state, “regardless of your immigration status.”
Newsom signed a law in September allowing illegal immigrants to receive state identification.

EDITOR’S NOTE: The “Climate Change Cult.” The “Anti-Racism Cult.” The “Cult of Wokeness.” The “LGBTQ Cult” and its predatory offspring targeting America’s children, the “Transgender Cult.” The “Cult of Abortion.” The “COVID Cult.” The “Cult of Globalism.” “TikTok Cults.” Every month the list grows.
To right-thinking Americans attempting to make sense of a nation seemingly gone mad, it’s becoming increasingly clear that the irrational, deranged – and often demonic – leftwing political and cultural movements currently capturing the minds of millions of Americans are nothing short of full-fledged cults.
Although the high priesthood of all these leftwing religious cults – i.e., university professors, academics and other Marxist ideologues and activists – may be true believers, the people actually wielding REAL POWER do not believe any of it. To them, these leftwing cults conveniently serve to disguise and distract “the rabble” from what the leader class is REALLY up to, which is the pursuit of ever more power, wealth and glory for themselves, and a total transformation of America and the world.
All of this and much more is explored in a powerful, insightful and absolutely unique way in the latest issue of WND’s acclaimed monthly Whistleblower magazine, titled “HOLY WAR: Defeating the growing cult of leftism and its total war on Christianity.”
