Outrageous Tempers Flare as CA City Appoints Illegal Immigrants as Commissioners
The city of Huntington Park, California, is making history and causing controversy by becoming the first U.S. city to appoint illegal immigrants as city commissioners, according to Fox 11.
Some critics say city councilman Jhonny Pineda specifically appointed Frank Medina and Julian Zatarain because they worked on his campaign. Others say they don’t believe illegal immigrants should serve the government this way.
"We need to make sure that we bring everyone together to the table here in Huntington Park, so that we can make sure we’re sharing the same vision," Pineda said.
"You are out of order!" one woman in the crowd yelled at the council members during the meeting on Monday. "This is the United States of America!"
Neil Cavuto told Democratic strategist Joe Lestingi on "Your World" today that Medina and Zatarain are illegally in the country and should not have rights, let alone positions on advisory boards in government.
"This is worse than sanctuary cities. Now we're giving them sanctuary boards," Cavuto said. "You know this is crazy."
