I agree but as practical matter I wonder how it can be done. It would be nice if it was done simply because we could half the unemployment rate in this state over night. Sure, employers would have to pay a bit more to get Americans to do the job but they will do it.

How can the mayors who support this stay in office?
Elementary, my dear sunshine. They get the illegals and their citizen compatriots and fellow reconquistas to vote for them.

Capitol Alert: California's criminal alien population rises

How can the mayors of the sanctuary cities justify shielding illegal aliens? Oakland, Jerry Brown's old stomping ground, was a sanctuary city while he was mayor.
That same GAO report says
"...that each of California’s illegal alien inmates have an average of seven different arrests."

Capitol Alert: California's criminal alien population rises

"California spends $34,000 per inmate, per year for incarceration. By contrast, Texas spends $12,000."
