I was listening to the Z-Man’s latest podcast when he mentions the story of the post I’m currently reading on my screen.
Illegal alien appointed to statewide post in California
The California senate Rules Committee has appointed an illegal alien to an advisory committee, the first illegal to hold state-wide office.
Lizbeth Mateo, a 33-year-old attorney and immigrant rights activist, will serve on the California Student Opportunity and Access Program Project Grant Advisory Committee. The committee advises the California Student Aid Commission on efforts to increase college access for California students from low-income or underserved communities.
“While Donald Trump fixates on walls, California will continue to concentrate on opportunities,” de León said in a news release. “Ms. Mateo is a courageous, determined and intelligent young woman who at great personal risk has dedicated herself to fight for those seeking their rightful place in this country.”
