I recently drove through a checkpoint on the interstate entering California. Not a U.S. Border Patrol check point of which there are still about eight of them in southern California. No, this was an Agricultural Checkpoint operated by the California Department of Agriculture. The “Plant Health and Pest Prevention Services” check to be sure vehicles entering California “… are free from exotic invasive species that may be hitchhiking with them.” Pests and bugs, in other words.
Here is a California caveat in doublespeak, “Although submitting to inspection is voluntary, vehicle and commodities are not allowed to enter until released by an inspector.” Over 20 million vehicles a year are inspected, including “fruits, vegetables, plants, hay, and firewood.”
And there are the big-rig truck scales/weigh stations on every highway. They perform mandatory inspections and weighing to keep illegal vehicles off California highways.
California still has DUI and license checkpoints, which illegal aliens are alerted to on Facebook pages that cater to illegals. Never an admonition not to drive drunk, just where to avoid the checkpoints … and why would you avoid the checkpoint? No license, or drunk, right? No admonition to not drive drunk, just to “drive safely.”
However, California encourages flooding the streets and highways with illegal alien drivers, issuing driver licenses to all who apply.
The point is that the sanctimonious, hypocritical Sacramento crowd do not care about one of the most important, and dangerous, events to impact our country and culture … except to encourage it. They benefit from increased illegal immigration, electorally and financially. Like petulant children who want to defy their parents, they openly defy federal laws to the detriment of most of us.
California legalized marijuana for “recreational use” on January 1, 2018, but, because marijuana possession still violates federal law, federal agents continue to seize the drug at Border Patrol checkpoints in California.
The irony in all of this is that the State of California is a total sanctuary state, welcoming illegal aliens from everywhere in the world, defying the federal government and federal law.
