With a new year comes new laws.
In California, for example, marijuana is now acceptable for recreational use and the state has cemented itself with “sanctuary” status for illegals.
A street artist decided to have some fun with one of the new laws.
From Gateway Pundit:
Anonymous Street artists moved out to highways once again to ring in the new year by posting messages to the “Welcome to California” highway signs.
NOTE: It is unclear who originated this action.
More from Fox News:
Drivers entering California are being greeted with signs proclaiming the liberal bastion an “OFFICIAL SANCTUARY STATE,” according to photos and videos circulating on social media appearing to show a prankster attached the official-looking blue signs just below legitimate “Welcome to California” markers.
The Sanctuary State sign, which adds “Felons, Illegals and MS13 [gang members] welcome,” is similar to one hung up by a Malibu activist last year. Attempts to reach California’s Department of Transportation were not immediately successful.
“Democrats Need The Votes!” reads a message on the signs, which are plastered with the Great Seal of California and a donkey, one of the symbols of the Democratic Party.
More on the sanctuary state bill, per Fox News:
California became a “sanctuary state” Monday, as a bill that Democratic Gov. Jerry Brown signed into law in October officially took effect.
The law bars police in the nation’s most populous state from asking people about their immigration status or participating in federal immigration enforcement activities in most cases, Fox News reported.
The Golden State is home to an estimated 2.3 million illegal immigrants.
“These are uncertain times for undocumented Californians and their families, and this bill strikes a balance that will protect public safety, while bringing a measure of comfort to those families who are now living in fear everyday,” Brown said on the day he signed the bill.
The only reason Democrats in the Golden State allowed California to become a “sanctuary” was so they could ensure Democrat leadership for decades to come.
Who cares about going further into debt or the rule of law? Who cares what federal law says? That’s how Democrats think.
If people want to believe Dems made the state a safe haven out of the kindness of their hearts, think again.
This was a political move, plain and simple.
