Illegal alien granted state post in California: ‘Undocumented students’ ‘more visible in our state’

Of course, California. We’re not surprised. The rogue state, already experiencing a mass exodus, just appointed its first illegal immigrant to statewide office. Lizbeth Mateo, backed by Senate President Pro Tem Kevin de León’s office, is a 33-year-old immigrant rights activist who will now serve on the California Student Opportunity and Access Program Project Grant Advisory Committee.

What’s the committee do exactly?

It advises the California Student Aid Commission. According to the Sacramento Bee, this office is tasked with increasing “college access for California students from low-income or underserved communities.”

“While Donald Trump fixates on walls, California will continue to concentrate on opportunities,” the office of de León said.

“Ms. Mateo is a courageous, determined and intelligent young woman who at great personal risk has dedicated herself to fight for those seeking their rightful place in this country.”

“While undocumented students have become more visible in our state, they remain underrepresented in places where decisions that affect them are being made,” added Mateo in a statement.

Mateo was born in Oaxaca, Mexico, and arrived in the United States when she was 14.

GLENN: So here's this: Wednesday, first illegal immigrant ever to serve in state office in California, was appointed by the California Senate Rules Committee.

STU: Hmm.

GLENN: Lizabeth Mateo, 33, who attended Santa Clara University Law School in 2016, passed the California bar last year, is going to serve as the California student opportunity and access program grant advisory committee, which advises the California student aid commission on ways to make it easier for students from low-income or underserved communities to attend. What are those underserved communities?

STU: I could guess.

GLENN: Yes, I bet you do.

Senate president Kevin de Leon, who announced the decision, took the opportunity to slam President Trump. He released a statement that read, while Donald Trump fixates on walls, California will ton concentrate on opportunities. Ms. Mateo is a courageous -- how dare him use Miss. Is that the proper pronoun? I hope to God so.

STU: Is that an assumption of gender?

GLENN: I think it is. Ms. Mateo is courageous, determined, and an intelligent young woman who at great personal risk has dedicated herself to fight for those seeking their rightful place in this -- in this country.

Now, Mateo followed that up with, while undocumented students -- in my day, we used to call them illegally here. Illegal aliens.

While undocumented students had become more visible in our state, they remain unrepresented in places where decisions that affect them are made.

So, in other words, in the House and the Senate. You can't legally vote, but now you can serve in the Senate.

STU: If you're Donald Trump -- let me run this by you. You're sitting in the White House.

GLENN: I'm Donald Trump. Okay. Got it.

STU: You are Donald Trump. You're sitting in the White House right now. You are a guy who occasionally likes the jousting of a good conflict.

GLENN: Yes. I like conflict. I'm Donald Trump. I like conflict.

STU: You kind of like it. It's kind of what you like about the gig.

GLENN: Yes. That's what life is all about.

STU: And you like to send the message that you're very tough --

GLENN: Yes. He likes that too.

STU: -- on illegal immigration. Right?

GLENN: Uh-huh. Yeah.

STU: You have to be tempted --

GLENN: Uh-huh.

STU: -- mid-speech to send a crew in there from ICE, and to remove her from this country, in the middle of a sentence.

GLENN: So, in other words, Ms. Mateo, assuming that is her proper pronoun, she is giving a speech, and all of a sudden the doors are kicked in on each side. And ICE maybe grapples down from the ceiling. And grabs her and flies her to Mexico.

STU: There's no reason to damage a door in this process.

GLENN: I think Donald Trump might say, you know, I kicked the door open. Even if it's open, lock it and knock it down.

STU: It's one thing, that we've talked about -- the Dreamers. We've talked about all these groups with all these wonderful names. All these wonderful people from other countries, who just couldn't make it in their own. And have made it -- no -- no issue of their own. No fault of their own. They're just here.

Look, that is one thing. And obviously, Donald Trump has supported DACA. He's a guy who has been -- he's had some sympathies for those arguments. Right? When you are -- when you are flaunting it so badly, that you have broken the law, that you're doing something illegal, that you would enter a -- the first ever state representative or whatever it is, to go into an actual state government role and then have it publicized in multiple news stories and tell everyone on earth where you're going to be every minute of the day. That is really a finger in the face of the president, of the border guard.

GLENN: Oh, my. Of the United States of America.

STU: Of the United States of America. And the legal system.

GLENN: So just one more thing, just to point out that, you know, not only is she here illegally and she's now serving as an illegal in the state government, she is -- she's also the one who played a key role in helping a group of people known as the Dream Nine. Do you know the Dream Nine?

STU: I don't know the Dream Nine. I know Ocean's 8, I don't know the Dream Nine.

GLENN: I didn't watch one through eight, but the Dream Nine were nine people that were returned to the US after being deported to Mexico.

So ICE came in, deported them, and she helped them come back into the country.

STU: Wait. How do you --

GLENN: I don't know if it happened in the middle of the night. I don't know how it happened. But I think I'm more and more inclined to enjoy someone grappling down during the middle of her speech.

THE GLENN BECK PODCAST

Dangerous Tech Oligarchs Who Answer to No One | Glenn Greenwald | Ep 104

Have you noticed how the people who call everyone a conspiracy theorist are the biggest conspiracy theorists of all? Like the Russia Collusion conspiracy theory that the Washington elite used to discredit Trump and force him out of Washington, D.C. Or how the CIA is the real power center of American politics. Glenn Greenwald, Pulitzer-Prize-winning journalist and author of the new book, "Securing Democracy: My Fight for Press Freedom and Justice in Bolsonaro's Brazil," is an outsider in the media because he calls out these abuses of power. For one, he agrees that the Deep State is real.

Greenwald is a rare breed these days: He does actual journalism. He explains things very well, like his description of Trump's appeal and Obama's mystique. He and Glenn cover so many topics: Woke corporations, Julian Assange, the #MeToo movement, Putin, Snowden, The Constitution, Big Tech censorship. Why does the Left call Greenwald right-wing but the Right calls him left-wing? For a journalist, that used to be a badge of honor. But as Greenwald points out, the journalism industry has become a Woke priesthood. So, if you want to learn about actual journalism, listen to this episode. It's totally worth getting through a couple of technical difficulties.

GLENN ON TUCKER: The elites are using COVID to reshape the world

Wasn't life supposed to go back to normal once the vaccines were widely distributed? The lack of information coming from the government elites should be a sign that maybe, just maybe — all their experts are out of ways to spin this? Or could it be the elites are using COVID to reshape the world into THEIR own image?

Critical Race TYRANNY: The Great Reset of Education

A virus has escaped the university labs and is super-spreading through our culture. It's called Critical Race THEORY and what used to be a fringe topic in the academic world is now a dangerous Marxist REALITY infecting our public schools where students are taught the U.S. is a "parasitic system" based on the "invasion" of "white male settlers."

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck exposes how some teachers are being instructed to "cash in on kids' inherent empathy" in order to train them to become "activist intellectuals," starting as early as first grade.

CRT is an absolute toxin to America and Glenn warns that in just one generation the Constitution, freedom, and true equality will be totally destroyed. Yet, any opposition to the spread of this disease is shouted down as racism and bigotry. If Critical Race Theory is not already in your local school curriculum, it will be soon.

Joined by Asra Nomani, Vice President for Strategy and Investigations at Parents Defending Education, Glenn arms you with the facts about CRT so you can stand up to this tyranny in your community.

NO comparison between REAL Jim Crow laws & Georgia voting bill

The left keeps comparing Georgia's new voting regulations to Jim Crow era laws, arguing the voting bill is too restrictive and even racist against minority populations. But Glenn argues that it's an INSULTING comparison to make, especially to those who actually lived and experienced the real, horrifying Jim Crow laws during the early 20th century. In this clip, Glenn explains what Jim Crow ACTUALLY means and how Georgia does not even COME CLOSE.
