Last November, upon Barbara Boxer's retirement, Kamala Harris was elected to assume Boxer's U.S. Senatorial seat for the State of California. Senator Harris' first proposed bill as senator, the Access to Counsel Act, announced today, is true to Harris's six-sigma-to-the-left political ideology.
I shared my feedback with Senator Harris via her official web site. My feedback follows:
Dear Senator Harris:
Congratulations on your first term as Senator for the State of California.
I am insulted by and oppose on principle your first proposed bill, the Access to Counsel Act. Here in Los Angeles, we have a serious problem with homelessness. We have unemployment. We have crime. We have acts of terrorism (San Bernardino, for example). The fact that your first initiative as CA Senator is to propose the spending of my tax dollars to hire legal counsel for even one traveler who may enter the U.S. illegally, who may not be entitled to such counsel under the U.S. Constitution, or who may not be properly vetted, suggests to me that you have broken your oath of office and are not representing my interests.
I am disappointed in your first initiative as Senator of CA. You could have done something unequivocally in the interest of all Californians. Alas, you chose to divide and provoke your constituency.
