Parasitic Leftist Update: California City Councilman Appoints 2 Illegal Aliens As Commissioners

Huntington Park Council Appoints 2 Undocumented Immigrants As Commissioners – KNX

.

.
Huntington Park became the first city in California to appoint two undocumented immigrants as commissioners on city advisory boards, a lawmaker confirms.

City Councilman Jhonny Pineda has picked Francisco Medina to join the health and education commission and Julian Zatarain for the parks and recreation commission.

The 32-year-old lawmaker told CBSLA online producer Deborah Meron that he promised voters while running for office that he would create more opportunities for undocumented residents.

“Huntington Park is a city of opportunity and a city of hope for all individuals regardless of socioeconomic status, race, creed, or in this case, citizenship,” the councilman said in a statement. “Both these gentlemen have accomplished a great deal for the city. For that, on behalf of the city council, mayor, and our city, I want to say thank you to them both and I am confident they will do an excellent job on their commission posts.”

The announcement was met with uproar at a city council meeting held in Huntington Park on Monday night.

“You only want to appoint these specific individuals, only two, because they’re your personal friends that worked on your campaign,” one resident stated to Pineda at the meeting. “Shame on you.”

Community activist Sandra Orozco also spoke out against the appointments, stating that they send the wrong message to the community and to the country.

“We’re sending the wrong message to other cities that you can be illegal, and you can come and work for a city,” Orozco said.

Mayor Karina Macias, meanwhile, was vocal in her support of the appointments on Monday, arguing that those who live here deserve a voice, whether they are legal or not.

Pineda says he cleared the appointments with the city attorney, who confirmed there’s nothing that requires a commissioner to be a registered voter, a documented citizen or even a resident, which technically means someone here without legal residency can serve.

“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.

Appointees first passed a LifeScan background check.

Medina and Zatarain would not be paid for the volunteer positions and would not have a direct hand in constructing policy but would help advise the council on legislation. Other commissioners receive a $75 monthly stipend on months when they hold meetings.

Medina attended the meeting on Monday evening but did not want to get into a debate with critics.

“I’m not going to say anything,” Medina explained. “I’m just happy for the fortune that I have, and I’m going to do my best to represent every single resident in Huntington Park, regardless if you’re undocumented, regardless if you are a citizen. We’re just going to be working for everyone.”

Coming the same year that California allowed residents to apply for a driver’s license, regardless of immigration status, this move is the latest in an effort to recognize an increasingly sizable demographic in the state.

Pineda says at 13 years old he emigrated alone to the United States. He established legal residency and told Meron he feels blessed to have been able to come here and work. He’s served as a district representative on the California State Senate and legislative assistant for the U.S. House of Representatives. He currently is president of the California Latino Leadership Institute, an organization designed for young professionals interested in leadership development and serving their community.

This is Pineda’s first year on the Huntington Park City Council.

The councilman touched on his childhood in Central America and says there would be nights he’d come home to a house with no food.

He says the criticism of people who emigrate illegally often comes without understanding the hardship they leave behind.

When asked whether he expected any reaction to his commissioner selections, Pineda said: “Having worked at the federal level, I understand that not everything that you do reflects good on the entire nation. Of course, we’re going to have people who disagree with me, but I’m fine with that.”

Pineda says he selected Medina and Zatarain primarily for their contributions to the city.

A graduate from Cal State Dominguez Hills with a bachelor’s degree in sociology and Chicano studies, Medina interned for then-Assemblyman Gil Cedillo, who now serves on the Los Angeles City Council, Pineda says. Medina also organizes immigration forums aimed a helping working-class communities.

Zatarain is a student at Santa Monica Community College who came to the U.S. in 2007, according to Pineda. At Huntington Park High School, he served as ASB president and graduated with the highest GPA in his class. He acted as campus representative for English as a Second Language program and created a club to help ESL students prepare for college. Pineda says he created a local chapter of the Red Cross and organized several blood drives. Zatarain wants to attend law school.

Pineda says the decision announced at the City Council meeting Monday became official after being processed by the council.

Jewish NYC Councilman Obliterates Myth That Pro-Palestinian Activists Aren’t Raving Anti-Semites (Videos)

NYC Jewish City Council Member Slams Pro-Palestinian Activists For Anti-Semitic Protest – Right Scoop

These anti-Semitic sickos in New York disrupted a City Council meeting during a vote commemorating the anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz. They were upset because City Council members are taking a trip to Israel next month. Here’s the video of the disruption:

.

.

NY DAILY NEWS – Pro-Palestinian activists disrupted a City Council meeting Thursday to protest Council members’ planned trip to Israel next month.

Protesters in the balcony of the Council chamber unfurled a Palestinian flag and began yelling “Palestinian lives matter,” “Don’t support genocide,” and “Melissa, you’re a hypocrite,” a slam on Speaker Melissa Mark-Viverito, who will lead the Israel delegation.

Council members reacted furiously to the demonstration – especially because the disruption began as they were concluding a vote on a resolution commemorating the anniversary of the liberation of the Auschwitz concentration camp.

A few dozen protesters were booted from the chamber, with some physically removed, and were ordered off the City Hall property all together.

Orthodox Jewish City Council member David Greenfield fires back at the disruption, exposing the anti-Semitism of the protesters and pointing out in obliterating terms that these anti-Semites are angry because “Hitler didn’t finish the job”.

Democrat Councilman From New York Busted For Ripping Off $30,000 In Taxpayer Money

NYC Councilman Ruben Wills Arrested – Yew York Post

Do-nothing Queens Councilman Ruben Wills stole more than $30,000 in taxpayer money – and used some of the cash for department-store shopping sprees that included the purchase of a Louis Vuitton handbag, authorities charged Wednesday.

.

.
Wills, 42, was arrested on charges including fraud, theft and falsifying records as part of a scheme to fund a lavish lifestyle by pocketing money meant for causes such as childhood weight loss.

“[He’s] taking money that’s supposed to help kids who are suffering from obesity and all of the medical problems that arise out of that and using it to buy things at Macy’s and Nordstrom’s,” Attorney General Eric Schneiderman said.

“This is about as low as you can get.”

Wills, who has missed more than a fourth of all City Council meetings since taking office after a special election in 2010, allegedly siphoned about $19,000 in pork-barrel funds arranged by his former boss, state Sen. Shirley Huntley, for whom he served as chief-of-staff.

Wills also scammed $11,500 in matching funds from the city Campaign Finance Board by submitting a phony invoice tied to his failed 2009 race for the council, authorities said.

Schneiderman said the Democrat pulled off the “very calculating scheme” through a nonprofit he founded, NY 4 Life.

The charity supposedly helps single mothers and needy kids but was actually used to “defraud New York taxpayers while lining the councilman’s own pockets,” Schneiderman said.

Although Huntley, now imprisoned herself for corruption, obtained funding for Wills for four separate programs, Wills only followed through on a luncheon that cost $14,000.

.
…………

.
While he lived high on the hog, he failed to execute an “obesity initiative” for which he received funding, Schneiderman said.

Wills refused to cooperate with the probe by Schneiderman and state Comptroller Tom DiNapoli, invoking the Fifth Amendment.

At Wills’ arraignment in Queens Supreme Court, he pleaded not guilty to a dozen counts. The top charge carries up to seven years in prison. He was released without bail and defiantly proclaimed his innocence.

“I am not resigning on charges. This is America, people. We are presumed innocent before we are proven guilty,” Wills said.

“But because I know what I am, where I come from and the color I am, it doesn’t really work like that with you guys.”

Wills also boasted that, “I have full support from my district, and I have full support across the City Council.” But council Speaker Melissa Mark-Viverito immediately booted him from the chairmanship of the Subcommittee on Drug Abuse.

In 2011, Wills pleaded guilty to criminal mischief for stealing a fan and lights from a former contracting client 15 years earlier.

Democrat Councilman Arrested For DUI (Video)

Dem Councilman Arrested For DUI – Washington Free Beacon

Lorain City Councilman Dennis Flores was arrested for driving while drunk Wednesday night after police found him trying to free his van from a snowbank and appeared drunk.

Councilman Flores was put into custody after failing a field sobriety test.

The arresting officers filmed the entire ordeal and The Chronicle-Telegram was able to obtain copies of the tapes and has the rest of the story:

Kovach wrote in his report that Flores had difficulty following a pen with his eyes and had difficulty with a walk-and-turn test. When Kovach asked Flores to stand on one leg and count, something he had to explain several times, Flores nearly fell to the ground, and the officer had to reach out and grab him, the video shows.

Kovach then puts Flores in the back of his patrol car and takes him to Lorain City Jail, where he handcuffs Flores before taking him inside.

A second video shows Flores and two other officers standing inside the jail, and Flores appears to burp. One of the officers comments that it smelled of vodka, but Flores corrects him, telling police that he had been drinking Christmas ale.

Flores refused to take a breath test to determine how much he had to drink and was booked into the jail.

He pleaded not guilty to the charges against him during an appearance Thursday in Lorain Municipal Court.

The Food-Nazis Are At It Again

New York Introduces The Un-Happy Meal – National Review

This afternoon, New York City councilman Leroy Comrie announced plans to introduce a bill that would ban fast-food restaurants from giving away toys in children’s meals. New Yorkers must be thrilled that their council members are spending time on toys when the City’s unemployment rate hasn’t budged from nearly 9 percent since November. I suppose Comrie simply doesn’t trust parents in his district to make good decisions about what their children are eating. He obviously believes government needs to step in.

………………………..

These regulations are nothing new. New York already bans trans-fats, and in 2008 the city began requiring fast-food restaurants to post calorie information. The city only targeted fast food; those super fancy restaurants where they serve bone marrow and foie gras (basically pure animal fat) were exempt from the regulation (rich people must be better at determining when they can eat a high-fat meal).

Other cities have instituted similar regulations. San Francisco famously banned Happy Meal toys last year. Philadelphia requires posted calorie information, and, in a move that smacks of racism, the Los Angeles City Council actually barred new construction of fast-food restaurants – but only in neighborhoods where the residents are primarily African-American and Latino. Nice.

There is, of course, no evidence that any of these regulations changes the way Americans eat. But this hasn’t stopped Comrie’s campaign against toys – which he calls “predatory marketing techniques.” Not even condemnation from the Left’s favorite news source, The Daily Show, which mocked the San Francisco Happy Meal ban, has stopped the introduction of these measures.

I guess it’s going to take some outraged parents to finally call off the food police.
