Legal scholar pokes holes through Newsom's threat to pursue criminal charges against Gov. DeSantis

Legal scholar Jonathan Turley reminded America on Thursday that California Gov. Gavin Newsom's outrage over migrant flights to his state is little more than performative theater.

Newsom floated bringing kidnapping charges against Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) after Florida sent two flights of migrants to Sacramento. The state condemned the flights as "state-sanctioned kidnapping." Florida, however, said the migrants traveled voluntarily and proved it with video of the migrants signing consent documents.

But according to Turley, if Newsom wants to be mad at anyone, he only has himself to blame.

"California officials insisted that the consent must have been fraudulent, which seems a strange argument that the state itself is not an inducement," Turley said.............

I Believe in the United States of America as a Government of the people, by the people, for the people; whose just powers are derived from the consent of the governed; a democracy in a republic; a sovereign nation of many sovereign states; a perfect union one and inseparable; established upon those principles of freedom, equality, justice and humanity for which American patriots sacrificed their lives and fortunes.  I therefore believe it is my duty to my country to love it; to support its Constitution; to obey its laws to respect its flag; and to defend it against all enemies.
