The University of California is the State’s third-largest employer according to the UC Accountability Report. For the most part, the $51.4 Billion university is primarily funded by the state General Fund and student tuition revenue, with a small portion coming from lottery funds, a share of patent royalty income, and overhead funds associated with federal and state research grants. Its governance is dominated by progressive communist democrats and serves as a petri dish for progressive policies.

So why am I now surprised that the university system is a hotbed of progressive indoctrination and radicalism—even to the point of supporting terrorist activities on its campuses?

And why am I not surprised that California continues to ignore federal immigration laws and provides substantial aid and comfort to illegal aliens surging across our border and decimating the social safety nets that we have funded with our lifelong taxes and contributions? Treating illegal aliens as super-citizens above the law is both unconstitutional under the law and abhorrent.

California Assembly Bill 2586 -- Public postsecondary education: student employment.

California Assembly Bill 2586 (“Opportunity for All Act”)

Prohibits the University of California (UC), California State University (CSU), or California Community College (CCC) from disqualifying a student from being hired for an employment position due to their failure to provide proof of federal work authorization, except where that proof is required by federal law or where that proof is required as a condition of a grant that funds the particular employment position for which the student has applied.


The state has demonstrated a commitment to undocumented students by qualifying them for state aid programs that help make college more attainable. AB 540 (Firebaugh), Chapter 814, Statutes of 2001, and successor legislation has created a nonresident tuition exemption for certain students, including undocumented students, from paying nonresident tuition (higher than resident tuition) and/or allows them to apply and receive state aid at certain California public and private colleges. Since the enactment of AB 540, several legislative measures have modified or expanded eligibility for the exemption from nonresident tuition in order to better accommodate the diverse student population.

Existing employment challenges.

On June 15, 2012, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) announced that it would not deport certain undocumented youth who came to the United States as children. Under a directive from the DHS secretary, these youth may be granted a type of temporary permission to stay in the U.S. called "deferred action." This program became called Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA).

In September of 2017 DACA was rescinded, a decision that placed millions of Californians at risk of losing their protection from deportation and work authorization that allowed them to be employed. Since the rescinding of the program several federal courts have provided rulings that have allowed current DACA recipients to continue to enroll in the program, however one of the federal court cases is currently pending at the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals.

These rulings have impacted current students, where multiple incoming classes have entered that are ineligible to receive DACA and work authorization. These students have limited access to career-relevant and sustainable work opportunities during college and after graduation. Additionally, many of these students do not qualify for critical safety net programs like CalFresh.

Segmental concerns.

The UC does not have a position on AB 2586, but did send a letter of concern. In their letter they identified numerous potential issues that could come with hiring undocumented students. These include:

1) The exposure of UC's undocumented students and their families to the possibility of criminal prosecution or deportation;
2) The possibility of employees involved in the hiring process like faculty, human resources, and legal professionals being subject to criminal or civil prosecution if they knowingly participate in practices deemed impermissible under federal law;
3) Civil fines, criminal penalties, or debarment from federal contracting if the UC is in violation of the Immigration Reform and Control Act (IRCA); and
4) The potential loss of billions of dollars in existing federal contracts and grants that are conditional on IRCA compliance

"In short, when Congress passed IRCA, Congress did not curtail states' historic power to determine the employment qualifications of state employees. As a result, IRCA's prohibition on hiring undocumented persons does not bind state government entities. State entities can lawfully hire undocumented students irrespective of employment authorization status under federal law.
And as the U.S. Supreme Court recognized long ago, California law provides definitively that the UC system is part of the State of California."

Warning Americans…

Congressional report finds half of all new jobs are going to immigrants

The House Budget Committee released a report Friday that found more than half of all new jobs are going to immigrants, including those in the country illegally.

The report comes after the Labor Department released its jobs report for May, which saw a small decrease in labor participation, which shrank from 62.7% in April to 62.5% in May, and the unemployment rate ticking up slightly from 3.9% in April to 4% in May. Immigrants have filled 840,000 new jobs since November, according to the Washington Times.

"Reports show that upwards of half the job gains under Biden have come from illegal immigrants, which belies a far weaker economy than Democrats want you to believe," committee chairman Jodey Arrington said in a statement. "Biden's illegal immigrant crisis has conveniently served as a 'two-for' - shoring up his vote tally and padding his dismal unemployment numbers."

Democrats celebrated the country's economy as a whole, and noted 40 months of strong jobs growth.

“Wages are rising, unemployment remains near record lows for the longest stretch in decades, and gains are widespread across sectors,” said Massachusetts Rep. Richard Neal, the top Democrat on the Ways and Means Committee, per the Washington Times.

House Republicans however slammed the report, and saying certain demographics took a dip in May, including Asian Americans, blacks, and Hispanics, who reported an increase in unemployment. <Source>

Bottom line…

By passing a law to mandate that illegal immigrants can be hired for taxpayer-funded jobs in state government, California’s progressive communist democrats Democrats are not only making our border crisis worse, they are openly violating federal employment laws that prohibit the hiring of illegal immigrants!

We are so screwed;m here in California-- more than the rest of the nation.
