    California Democratic Gov. Gavin Newsom signed a package of bills related to undocumented residents last week that includes approval of state identification for migrants in the state.

    Newsom signed the bill, AB 1766, that directs California's Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) to issue a restricted identification card to eligible participants by no later than July 1, 2027.

    "California is expanding opportunity for everyone, regardless of immigration status," Newsom said in a statement.

    "We're a state of refuge - a majority-minority state, where 27 percent of us are immigrants. That's why I'm proud to announce the signing of today's bills to further support our immigrant community, which makes our state stronger every single day," he added.

    The text of the new law states, "This bill would specify that immigration enforcement, as defined, does not constitute an urgent health and safety need for those purposes, and would prohibit a government agency or department, law enforcement agency, commercial entity, or other person from obtaining, accessing, using, or otherwise disclosing, noncriminal history information maintained by the department, for the purpose of immigration enforcement."

    The change would prohibit the DMV from using migrant status as a factor in obtaining state identification.

    The law follows a controversy in the state in 2018 in which 1,500 people were improperly registered to vote in California by the DMV, including non-citizens. Then-California Secretary of State Alex Padilla (D), who is now a U.S. Senator, said he did not know if any of those registered had voted in the state's June 2018 primary election.

    Approximately 1,500 people told the DMV they were ineligible or didn't confirm their eligibility during the registration period, according to the Associated Press. This group included at least one non-citizen living in the state in addition to other potential violations. People under 18 were also reportedly included, along with some who may have been ineligible due to a past criminal conviction.

    Other bills signed in the package of laws for undocumented residents include a variety of measures on behalf of immigrants living in the state.

    "Immigrant students will have improved access to in-state tuition at public colleges and universities, and to ESL courses at community colleges. Additionally, immigrant student borrowers will have more options to finance their college educations," the news release added.

    The controversial change as part of SB 1141 will offer in-state tuition at California public universities to qualified undocumented residents in the state, offering "exemption from payment of nonresident tuition."

    In addition, the new package of bills provides low-income residents, regardless of their immigration status, eligibility for legal assistance in civil matters affecting basic human needs.

    Another bill included in the package, SB 972, changes the state's retail food code to allow street vendors to more easily get local health permits "supporting better economic inclusion and opportunity." The bill was introduced by state Democratic Sen. Lena Gonzalez (D-Long Beach).

The previous poll on Eastern NC NOW showcased what are many of OUR Constitutional Republic's certain obstacles to remain viable, where the top encumbrance to that continuance as a functioning Republic was the Biden /Harris Wide Open Southern Border. Understanding this overwhelming concern to real America citizens: Do you believe it important to challenge the veracity of those legislated concerns of Democratic Socialists by transporting Illegal Migrants to their Sanctuary cities, counties and states for their direct care?
  Yes; test the depth of their "compassion" by giving Democratic Socialists an opportunity to enact all Sanctuary provisions in their communities to test how much they truly do care.
  No; the Biden /Harris Wide Open Southern Border Project is designed to only inundate "Red States" to begin their Demographic Upheaval for the benefit of we Democratic Socialists, our politics.
  I generally do NOT care about politics, but it is fun watching abject hypocrites squirm; maybe I will start getting more involved.

It has been far too many years since the Woke theology interlaced its canons within the fabric of the Indoctrination Realm, so it is nigh time to ask: Does this Representative Republic continue, as a functioning society of a self-governed people, by contending with the unusual, self absorbed dictates of the Woke, and their vast array of Victimhood scenarios?
  Yes, the Religion of Woke must continue; there are so many groups of underprivileged, underserved, a direct result of unrelenting Inequity; they deserve everything.
  No; the Woke fools must be toppled from their self-anointed pedestal; a functioning society of a good Constitutional people cannot withstand this level of "existential" favoritism as it exists now.
  I just observe; with this thoughtful observation: What will happen "when the Vikings are breeching our walls;" how do the Woke react?

Inarguably, the policies of the Democrats in congress and Joe Biden as the Executive is plunging the United States into a recession, if we are not already there; a recession that was completely avoidable. Will abrupt changes in policies occur in time?
  Yes, the Democrats have a bold plan, yet to be revealed, to save us.
  No, there will have to be a complete undoing of the damage done by these Democrats.
  I can't do simple math, so how am I to understand the concept of basic economics.
