Sen. Kevin De Leon (CA dude)A state lawmaker in California vowing to fight Donald Trump's crackdown on illegal immigration has admitted that illegal aliens obtain fraudulent documents – and defended the practice.

During a hearing before a Senate committee, President Pro Tem Kevin De Leon (pictured at right) said it's common knowledge that illegal aliens obtain fraudulent documents to "survive" and find work in California.

It sounds like a charge of criminal conspiracy if you openly talk about knowledge of a crime, says William Gheen of Americans for Legal Immigration PAC, or ALIPAC.

"He's talking about them flagrantly as if he has no fear of law enforcement," Gheen complains, "and that's what needs to change in America."

De Leon, in fact, was speaking before the Public Safety Committee in favor of his own Senate Bill 54, which makes California a so-called "sanctuary state" in defiance of Trump's threat to go after "sanctuary cities."

Gheen, William (ALIPAC)De Leon told the committee that "half of my family would be eligible for deportation" under a Trump executive order, because they have obtained false documents. He named Social Security cards, drivers' licenses, and immigration "green" cards as examples of false identification.  

The lawmaker didn't back up from his stance either. He went on a radio show the following day and named a Los Angeles location – McArthur Park – where the falsified documents can be purchased.

"You don't think purchasing a phony Social Security card and number should be a deportable offense?" the radio host, Larry Mantle, asked him, Breitbart reported.

"I can tell you I have family members specifically who came here as undocumented immigrants, and they did the same thing," he added. "That’s what you need to do to survive in this economy."

Such statements would not be made public if law enforcement officials were permitted to perform their jobs, says Gheen.

"Illegal immigrants and fraudsters, and people stealing identities like this senator's family members, they are the ones who need to be in fear instead of American citizens," says Gheen.
