On the issue of California, and on the Sanctuary State issue, it is a long standing American tradition to stand up and do CIVIL DISOBEDIENCE against things that we are against, we did it against England to throw off the rule of the British, and we did it on other issues, such as when people violated the law when the law required them to report runaway slaves, many helped the slaves and refused to report them, etc. Henry David Thoreau wrote about CIVIL DISOBEDIENCE and many people such as Gandhi and others practiced CIVIL DISOBEDIENCE and Gandhi was able to win independence for India without firing a single shot. Another case of CIVIL DISOBEDIENCE was when Lech Walesa helped to win independence for Poland and helped to bring down the USSR and helped to bring down the Berlin Wall, and helped to bring freedom, democracy, and improved human rights to hundreds of millions of people, without firing a single shot. Another case was when Martin Luther King Jr peacefully fought for improved human rights for African Americans, and when Rosa Parks used Civil Disobedience when she refused to sit at the back of the bus. There are many examples of people who stood up for what they believed in, even if what they believed in was against the law. There was also the case of people who defied Hitler and helped to save Jews, even though it was against the law. It is up to us to stand up against laws that are un-American, and that go against what we stand for. And we must change laws that do not represent what we stand for. It is up to us to stop the wall, and to stand up for our good immigrants, and to do CIVIL DISOBEDIENCE against things that we do not agree with, and to demand a GOOD NEIGHBOR policy with our good Christian neighbors here in the Western Hemisphere, Canada and Mexico, and we must demand that Canadians and Mexicans be able to legally live, work, and go to school, in the USA, and we must have a special path to citizenship for them, and we must stand up for all good immigrants like Reagan did when he made all of our immigrants legal and brought them out of the shadows so that they could legally work in the USA and join unions, etc. We need to be defiant of what we do not agree with, and we must stand up and demand what we do agree with, and California is behaving in a strong American tradition when California declares California to be a Sanctuary State and when we go against what we are against.
