Joining the Health and Education Commission will be illegal immigrant Frank Medina and Julian Zatarain (also an illegal immigrant) will be joining the Parks and Recreation Commission in Huntington Park California.
History, it is in fact in the making as the city of Huntington Park will be the first ever to position illegal immigrants as commissioners within the city council.
Although Councilman Jhonny Pineda has no intention of backing down from this decision, he is not being met without opposition. Not everyone is happy about his choices and, perhaps, rightfully so.
According to CBS/KCAL9 reporter Kara Finnstrom, a woman screamed at the council-member’s saying, “You are out of order!”
“We’re sending the wrong message,” the woman said. “You can be illegal and you can come and work for the city!”
And would this woman be wrong? Isn’t that exactly the message being sent? It would seem, then, that a precedent will be set and every illegal immigrant will, therefore, have an argument for employment in the United States based by that precedent.
In many minds this is not a smart move.
32 year old Pineda, however, is defending his position and refusing to back down his endeavor to position illegal immigrants into City Council Commissioners.
Many American citizens are displeased and wondering where the alliance of Medina and Zatarain lies, with their native country or that of the United States. With all the chaos and terror going on in the world right now, their concerns are warranted.
An Official is someone described as “Someone who holds an office (function or mandate, regardless whether it carries an actual working space with it) in an organization or government and participates in the exercise of authority (either his own or that of his superior and/or employer, public or legally private),” according to Wikipedia.
The very disregard for our government authority is being played out by the illegal immigrants Medina and Zatarain. If they want the government official positions they should do the right thing and become Legal Immigrants. Councilman Pineda should be standing behind THAT and not the encouragement for future illegal immigrants to take over official positions or the jobs in this country.
Pineda has a different vision, however, saying, “We need to make sure that we bring everyone together to the table here in Huntington Park so that we make sure we’re sharing the same vision.”
What do you think America? America has already changed so dramatically over the last 7 years. Do we support the potential historic appointments or do we see this as the beginning of the end of an already dramatically changed America of our youths…an America left truly without borders?
