HOW JOHN CHIANG WILL WIN THE CA GUBERNATORIAL ELECTION. (Part I)


The victory of John Chiang will ride on the backs of a grand multi-ethnic coalition. Among the biggest backers of John Chiang are American citizens (some of whom live outside of CA) and CA voters who have friends or relatives who are illegal aliens or undocumented illegal immigrants.

CA is the home of some 10-million illegal immigrants.

It is public knowledge that when then Sen. Barack Obama became the President in 2009, both Houses of the U.S. Congress were controlled also by Democrats.

Antonio Villaraigosa was the Mayor of Los Angeles (the 2nd-biggest city in the U.S.) from 2005-2013. Gavin Newsom was the Mayor of San Francisco from 2004-2011.


And yet both Mr. Villaraigosa and Mr. Newsom never pressured the White House under President Obama and the Democratic majorities of the U.S. Congress to enact into law many meaningful suggestions on immigration reforms.


And especially then-Mayor Gavin Newsom could have pressured his auntie, then-Speaker Nancy Pelosi, or his godmother, Sen. Diane Feinstein, to help President Obama in doing a historic immigration reform.

The truth was that some Democratic leaders like Speaker Pelosi, Senator Feinstein, Mayor Newsom, Mayor Villaraigosa and other national and local leaders of the Democratic Party paid LIP SERVICE to immigration reform. Yes, they spoke mere politically-correct sound bites that supposedly would pave the way to help illegal immigrants and outstaying aliens and/or the DACA recipients, many of whom have approved petitions by their American-citizen kin to become legal immigrants.

Yes, Antonio Villaraigosa is also a son of immigrants. But when he was in power as the Mayor of Los Angeles, he appeared to have turned his back against the illegal-immigrant community.

Like Gavin Newsom, Antonio Villaraigosa loved the limelight and the corridor of power as the "Teflon Dons" of CA politics. To them, "to hell with the illegal immigrants that cannot vote after all."

But both Mr. Newsom and Mr. Villaraigosa forgot that illegals have kin and friends who are U.S. citizens and the latter could vote in U.S. elections.
The 2018 CA gubernatorial election is payback time against Gavin Newsom and Antonio Villaraigosa and their fellow hypocrites in the Democratic Party.

Yes, these leaders like Gavin Newsom and Antonio Villaraigosa sounded good in TV or radio interviews and in press releases. But the truth is that they did nothing to pressure the national leadership in the U.S. Congress and the White House to undertake immigration reform.

Californians know that John Chiang is a second-generation American of Taiwanese descent. When the Democrats could have done immigration reform, John Chiang was the CA State Controller from 2007 to 2015. He did not have the clout then to pressure the U.S. Congress and the White House to go for immigration reform. But Mr. Chiang did his best in sending letters to the nation's policy-&-decision makers about immigration reform.

This is the official position on immigration and immigration reform of John Chiang, as tweeted to the Sacramento Bee newspaper: "As a son of immigrants, I've experienced the painful discrimination thousands across CA & the nation have faced. That's why I'll never turn my back on CA's immigrants, & why I'll always fight for CA's values of diversity, acceptance, & inclusion!"
