Kirsters Baish| Out of the 50 states that make up the United States of America, there is one in particular that seems to be doing all they can to self-destruct. That state is California, and on New Year’s Day they got what was coming to them in a hilarious prank.
https://twitter.com/ed_hooley/status/948160835192573953The sign prank was well thought out and clearly a political statement from some angry conservatives. California officials had to explain that the signs were clearly not official when it came down to it.
The California Department of Transportation explained, “For safety reasons, Caltrans does not permit any unauthorized signs in the state right of way. If we haven’t done so already, Caltrans crews will take steps to remove them.”
A spokesperson from the agency spoke with Fox and explained that one of the signs was placed on Interstate 15 close to the California-Nevada border. There was at least one other which was located on I-40 near the California-Arizona border.
It was clear that the signs were poking at the new “sanctuary state” status that the state of California has dubbed for themselves which took effect on Monday.
Fox reported, “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. The Golden State is home to an estimated 2.3 million illegal immigrants.”
This isn’t the first time in our nation’s history that someone has gone after the state of California’s ridiculous sanctuary policies. In April of 2017, there was a very similar sign located in Malibu.
The parody message went on to read, “Cheap Nannies and Gardeners Make Malibu Great!’ (Boyle Heights Not So Much.).”
We must make it clear that tampering with road signs isn’t appropriate no matter what political affiliation you have. That being said, it’s still pretty hilarious to see the signs. Any good parody has elements of truth, so a message like “Felons, Illegals, and MS13 welcome” is pretty hilarious considering California seems to allow just anyone to come waltzing in.
Putting all jokes aside, the truth of the matter is that sanctuary policies are extremely dangerous. We are already seeing the consequences with crime rates skyrocketing in states which allow illegal immigrants to walk freely. The state of California has put themselves in a stick situation, so once we’ve warned them what else can we do?
