In a rebuke to President Trump, Gov. Newsom pardons refugees facing deportation

California Gov. Gavin Newsom on Monday pardoned seven former felons, including two Cambodian refugees the Trump administration wants to deport, in his first acts of clemency since the Democrat took office in January.

Newsom adopted a policy of his predecessor, former Gov. Jerry Brown, to use his state constitutional authority to issue pardons to shield immigrants targeted by federal immigration officials.

The pardons are an unmistakable rebuke to President Trump, whose fiery anti-immigrant rhetoric and demands for giant wall along the U.S.-Mexico border have been central to the escalating political feud between Newsom and the White House.

Newsom took another shot at Trump just hours before announcing the pardons while speaking to members of Asian Pacific Islander American Public Affairs Assn., a national nonprofit, nonpartisan advocacy organization based in Sacramento. Newsom compared Trump to the anti-immigrant “demagogues” in San Francisco who championed the federal Chinese Exclusion Act of 1882 — the nation's first immigration ban on a specific group of people.

he cannot pardon federal lawbreakers, only state felons.

Most states' citizens would raise hell if murderers, rapists or thieves were pardoned only because they are illegals..putting illegals welfare over citizens again.

Democratic states sure will defy the federal government to keep their cheap labor.

They think it is 1861 again.

Maybe Newsom is making his move to jump onto the carnival wagon with the other 2 dozen Democrat candidates.
