Cali Senate Leader Admits Half His Family Are Illegals
Cali Senate President Pro Tem Kevin de Leon (D-Los Angeles) made a statement during a debate on SB54, a bill that would make California a “Sanctuary” State, that has drawn unwanted attention. He said that half of his family are here illegally and could be deported.
” I can tell you half of my family would be eligible for deportation under [President Donald Trump’s] executive order, because if they got a false Social Security card, if they got a false identification, if they got a false driver’s license prior to us passing AB60, if they got a false green card, and anyone who has family members, you know, who are undocumented knows that almost entirely everybody has secured some sort of false identification. That’s what you need to survive, to work. They are eligible for massive deportation..” Kevin de Leon
Making the entire state of California a “sanctuary” state is foolish in the first place. They have already allowed illegals to obtain driver’s licenses (AB60), and register to vote when they obtain that license (yes that’s probably why so many illegals voted in the election in that state). They pay benefits to illegals to the tune of literally millions of legal citizens’ taxpayer money.
But having a sitting State Senator admit to this level of illegal activity is unimaginable.
Several questions come to mind:
Did Mr. DeLeon help them obtain the mentioned false documents?
The use of false government documents falls under several U.S. Codes:
18 U.S. Code § 1001 – Statements or entries generally.
18 U.S. Code § 1028 – Fraud and related activity in connection with identification documents, authentication features, and information.
18 U.S. Code § 1324c – Penalties for document fraud, which states that anyone who assists in preparing said false documents can be imprisoned for up to 15 years. Each false document can be subject to a fine of not less than $250, or up to $5000 under the civil assessment part of the code.
The only exceptions to those codes are undercover law enforcement. The reaction to de Leon’s statement on social media was “fast and furious.”

Mr. de Leon seems to believe that having false identification such as a Social Security card should not be a deportable offense because the “vast majority” of illegals are “hard working.” How many people have had their Social Security numbers stolen in these situations?
