California civil rights lobby vows to oppose Donald Trump’s administration ‘to the bitter end’
Organization president dares President Trump to implement ‘fascist policies’ in Sacramento
Sacramento, CA, January 23, 2017—Organization President Amber Lynette of the California Civil Liberties Advocacy (CCLA) wrote an open letter addressed to incoming President Donald Trump at Trump Tower in New York, vowing to oppose the bombastic policies that Mr. Trump proposed during his campaign, including Mr. Trump’s ‘great wall’ on the Mexican border, the mass deportation of undocumented immigrants, and overturning the landmark case, Roe v. Wade of 1973. Ms. Lynette accused Mr. Trump of selecting cabinet members with ‘corrupt ties and blatant conflicts of interest,’ such as the nomination of ExxonMobil CEO, Rex Tillerson, whom the media has reported as having business ties to Russia and other foreign nations. Ms. Lynette openly ‘dared’ Mr. Trump to implement his ‘fascist policies’ in California and vowed to use ‘every last bit of our [the CCLA’s] limited resources’ fighting Mr. Trump’s policies ‘to the bitter end’ in Sacramento.
Ms. Lynette closed her letter by stating, “You may be the President of the United States of America, but the State of California did not choose you. Those of us who put our hearts and our souls, and all of our vital energy into fighting for the true and just cause—we will be watching you. You are not our president and neither your fascist rhetoric nor your policies are welcome here in California.”
