California is breaking all kinds of barriers. Mostly the skin barrier, with discarded heroin needles (see
Experts Now Comparing San Francisco to the 'Slums of Developing Countries'
). Their latest accomplishment -- making history by hiring the first illegal alien for a government position. Spoiler: she's from Mexico. Double spoiler: the position probably isn't making delicious tacos in the staff lounge. Although... nobody said the position
for taco making.
Lizbeth Mateo, an illegal alien and citizen of Mexico who came to the country with her parents when she was 14, is the first undocumented person to be appointed to a statewide government job in the United States. The job, to serve on the California Student Opportunity and Access Program Project Grant Advisory Committee, is an official government position that seeks to aid poor and “underserved communities” in gaining access to college.
Mateo’s appointment was approved by the California Senate Rules Committee Wednesday.
In a statement, Mateo said
illegal aliens are “underrepresented” in government.
“While undocumented students have become more visible in our state, they remain underrepresented in places where decisions that affect them are being made.”
That was an actual sentence uttered out of Mateo's mouth. A jet stream of bull crap flying at record rates. We're making all kinds of history here.
We don't see many illegal aliens in government because they're not citizens. They don't have American rights. Having law-breaking criminals affect law seems somewhat redundant. But the real kicker here? This illegal immigrant apparently has a degree in law. As in the same law she continuously breaks by lounging about in the California sun.
Thank you Sen. @kdeleon for appointing me to the CalSOAP Advisory Committee. I look forward to working w/ the rest… https://t.co/zItPXdA9VH
