While introducing Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto, Brown “spoke about the interwoven histories of Mexico and California,” the Los Angeles Times said. While nodding to the illegal immigrants in the room, he said it “didn’t matter if they had permission to be in the United States.”
“You’re all welcome in California,” he reportedly said.
Brown has made California a sanctuary state by signing the Trust Act, giving driver’s licenses to illegal immigrants. He has also expanded financial aid to illegal immigrants by signing the California DREAM Act. Peña Nieto reportedly “thanked state officials for embracing foreigners, citing measures that extend state benefits to immigrants.”
During the recent border crisis, Breitbart added, Brown promised to “find ways to shorten long waits at the Tijuana-San Diego international border crossing.”
“If we can put a man on the moon, we can put a man from Mexico to California in 20 minutes,” he added.
Nieto, who is set to address the California State Legislature in Sacramento on Tuesday, said said America is “the other Mexico.”
