With every effort to take a step forward in cleaning up our country, people like California Governor Jerry Brown and New York Governor Andrew Cuomo take us two steps backwards.
New York is following dangerously close to California’s destructive decision to house and grant pardons to illegal immigrants. Nevermind the fact that their very existence in our country is a crime.
Cuomo just granted pardon to eighteen immigrants who were set to be deported per the federal government.
In a move seen as a rebuke to President Trump’s strict immigration enforcement policies, Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) granted pardons Wednesday to individuals who were convicted of crimes, but have since been law-abiding members of society for 10 years or more.
“While the federal government continues to target immigrants and threatens to tear families apart with deportation, these actions take a critical step toward a more just, more fair and more compassionate New York,” Cuomo said.
This is not his first pardon of convicted criminals though. He has already granted clemency to 61 people.
California Gov. Jerry Brown, a Democrat, took similar action this week, pardoning two men pardoning two men who were on the verge of being deported for committing crimes while in the U.S.
The pardons were given to two Northern California Cambodian men facing deportation under the Trump administration’s crackdown on criminal aliens.
One of the men was convicted in 2003 for felony joyriding and sentenced to a year in jail, while the second was convicted in 1995 on a felony weapons charge with a gang enhancement.
A man whose son was killed by an illegal immigrant in California lambasted Brown’s policies for “cost[ing] the lives of many Californians.”

It is disgusting to know that people like this are actually governing over American people. While he is supposed to be protecting Americans and ensuring their safety, he is literally allowing criminals to roam the streets and run the cities.
