California City Appoints 2 Illegal Immigrants to Positions in City Government

History is being made in the Los Angeles suburb of Huntington Park as two illegal immigrants were just appointed to serve in positions of city government.

Councilman Jhonny Pineda seemed shocked that many of the town’s citizens would take issue with the appointments because, in his words, “We need to make sure that, you know, we bring everyone together to the table here in Huntington Park so that we can make sure that we are sharing the same vision.”

Apparently, Mr. Pineda does not share the same vision as many Huntington Park citizens who believe that illegal immigrants should not be serving in city government.

According to CBS Los Angeles:

Councilman Jhonny Pineda announced at Monday night’s city council meeting the appointment of two undocumented immigrants as commissioners…


“You are out of order!” one woman in the crowd yelled at the council members during the meeting.


Some critics say Pineda, who joined the council in March, specifically picked Medina and Zatarain because they worked on his campaign. Others say they don’t believe undocumented immigrants should serve the government this way.


“We’re sending the wrong message: you can be illegal and you can come and work for the city,” a woman told Finnstrom.


Frank Medina will join the health and education commission and Julian Zatarain will be working with the parks and recreation commission.
[Pineda] promised voters on the campaign trail he’d create opportunities for the city’s sizable undocumented immigrant demographic.

How do you feel about illegal immigrants running city governments? Does it set a bad precedent?

    What do you expect? This is one of the multitudes of reasons my wife and I moved to Kern County from los angeles county, it’s a patch of sanity in california, for now. Yes, I intentional “lower case” certain names and terms because I consider what they name illegitimate.

      And my family moved out of California long years ago the first time that state destroying brown became governor.

    If our nation had a legitimate government they would walk in on one of their counsel meetings, snatch up the illegal aliens, haul them to jail for a few years then dump their useless carcasses into their country/cesspool or whatever of origin after taking DNA, finger AND footprints. No, they don’t deserve our legal rights, they aren’t citizens. If I got caught in Mexico illegally do you think I’d be given a seat on the counsel of a city there? No, I’d get just what I said these clowns above should get, and rightfully so.

      Hopefully that will happen. Deport the aliens, kick ol’ traitor Jerry out of office, and Californians can get their stat back I’m even for deporting those leftist “entertainers” who want to leave if Trump is elected. Promises, promises. Did a leftist ever keep a promise?

    They need put in jail, not in public jobs. I think it is time for a giant sweep of CA and if you can’t prove you are a US citizen or there legally you get a one way plane trip. To your home country where you will be booted out of the airplane at about 2500′ above the ground in a parachute.

      Screw the plane trip round them up and put them in putrid dirty cattle cars bound for Mexico (or whatever land border they came through or on a leaky boat otherwise ( with Quad .50 cal escorts ) all that will make them feel right at home .

    This dip shit of Pineda should be removed from office himself. last I checked, This was still The United States of America….not of Mexicali. Wait till Mr Trump becomes The Pres. I will Be there to help him lay the first bricks of the wall. Oh….That wall should have steel rebars on top and 12 feet under ground with some 2 million volts of electricity to it.

    Not American! Absurd and disgusting! A travesty of justice! Unlawful! Deport all illegal aliens, they are against U.S. Law! The United States is for citizens, illegal aliens have no business squatting here!
