City To Name 2 Undocumented Illegals As Commissioners

This article got my blood boiling. How in the world is this possible? Why is there not a documented legal citizen in this position? How did these two get these qualifications to take these positions? These are not undocumented immigrants, they are illegals.

Who gave Johnny Pineda permission to dictate to our nation what is accepted or not accepted? They have no right to start something like this, I am not wrong on this.

As Reported By Deborah Meron for Los Angeles CBS Local :

Huntington Park may become the first city in California to appoint two undocumented immigrants as commissioners on city advisory boards, a lawmaker confirms.

City Councilman Jhonny Pineda has picked Francisco Medina to join the health and education commission and Julian Zatarain for the parks and recreation commission.

The 32-year-old lawmaker told CBSLA online producer Deborah Meron that he promised voters while running for office that he would create more opportunities for undocumented residents.

“Huntington Park is a city of opportunity and a city of hope for all individuals regardless of socioeconomic status, race, creed, or in this case, citizenship,” the councilman said in a statement. “Both these gentlemen have accomplished a great deal for the city. For that, on behalf of the city council, mayor, and our city, I want to say thank you to them both and I am confident they will do an excellent job on their commission posts.”

Pineda says he cleared the appointments with the city attorney, who confirmed there’s nothing that requires a commissioner to be a registered voter, a documented citizen or even a resident, which technically means someone here without legal residency can serve.
