California Lawmakers Advocate Lawbreaking

Check out the link. Now the State Legislature of California has sanctioned the proposed walkout from work and school by those in favor of breaking the law (illegal immigration). I'm not sure, but I'll bet that these same lawmakers have to take an oath to uphold the Constitition and the laws of the land. Sounds like grounds for removal from office.
At least one of the members understands what's at stake:

But Sen. Dave Cox, R-Fair Oaks, said lawmakers should not encourage lawbreakers even if they disagreed with the law.

"It is irresponsible for this body to advocate that students leave school for any reason," Cox said.

He introduced a bill that would require a special school attendance audit on Monday, so that schools would not receive state aid for any student who was truant. School funding is based on attendance levels. O'Connell said the state would not grant waivers to schools that lose funding if students were absent while out protesting.

I'll be back
