    Default City To Appoint 2 Illegal Immigrants As Commissioners

    Huntington Park Councilman To Appoint 2 Undocumented Immigrants As Commissioners

    August 3, 2015



    HUNTINGTON PARK (CBSLA.com) — 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.

    Appointees first pass a LifeScan background check.
    Medina and Zatarain would not be paid for the volunteer positions and would not have a direct hand in constructing policy but would help advise the council on legislation. Other commissioners receive a $75 monthly stipend on months when they hold meetings.

    Coming the same year that California allowed residents to apply for a driver’s license, regardless of immigration status, this move is the latest in an effort to recognize an increasingly sizable demographic in the state.
    Pineda says at 13 years old he emigrated alone to the United States. He established legal residency and told Meron he feels blessed to have been able to come here and work. He’s served as a district representative on the California State Senate and legislative assistant for the U.S. House of Representatives. He currently is president of the California Latino Leadership Institute, an organization designed for young professionals interested in leadership development and serving their community.

    This is Pineda’s first year on the Huntington Park City Council.
    The councilman touched on his childhood in Central America and says there would be nights he’d come home to a house with no food.
    He says the criticism of people who emigrate illegally often comes without understanding the hardship they leave behind.

    When asked whether he expected any reaction to his commissioner selections, Pineda said: “Having worked at the federal level, I understand that not everything that you do reflects good on the entire nation. Of course, we’re going to have people who disagree with me, but I’m fine with that.”
    Pineda says he selected Medina and Zatarain primarily for their contributions to the city.

    A graduate from Cal State Dominguez Hills with a bachelor’s degree in sociology and Chicano studies, Medina interned for then-Assemblyman Gil Cedillo, who now serves on the Los Angeles City Council, Pineda says. Medina also organizes immigration forums aimed a helping working-class communities.

    Zatarain is a student at Santa Monica Community College who came to the U.S. in 2007, according to Pineda. At Huntington Park High School, he served as ASB president and graduated with the highest GPA in his class. He acted as campus representative for English as a Second Language program and created a club to help ESL students prepare for college. Pineda says he created a local chapter of the Red Cross and organized several blood drives. Zatarain wants to attend law school.
    Pineda says the decision will be announced at the City Council meeting scheduled for 6 p.m. Monday and will become official after being processed by the council.

    California City Council Meeting Erupts After Two Illegal Immigrants Are Appointed to Commissions: ‘You Are Out of Order!’

    Aug. 5, 2015


    Emotions ran high Monday night as two illegal immigrants were appointed to city commissions in Huntington Park, California.

    “You are out of order!” one woman screamed at the council during the meeting.

    Residents told KCBS-TV that they believed Councilman Jhonny Pineda appointed the two — Frank Medina and Julian Zatarain — because they helped with his recent campaign in March.

    “We’re sending the wrong message — you can be illegal and you can come and work for the city,” one resident told KCBS.

    But Pineda said he made a promise to voters, not to the two men, while he was on the campaign trail that he would create more opportunities for the illegal immigrants who live in the area. The councilman said he cleared the appointments with the city’s attorney. Medina has a long history of volunteer work in the community, according to city officials.



    “We need to make sure that we bring everyone together to the table here in Huntington Park so that we can make sure that we’re sharing the same vision,” Pineda said.

    According to KCBS, the two appointees will not be paid, as they cannot receive federal money, and will also not be involved in any policymaking decisions. Zatarain will work with the parks and recreation commission, and Medina will work with the health and education commission. It is unclear what their tasks in the two commissions will be.

    KCBS reported that the appointments will not be official until Medina and Zatarain pass a background check and are processed by the council. Mayor Karina Macias has said she supports the appointments.

    Default BLACK WOMAN RIPS COUNCIL OVER ILLEGAL ALIENS

    LOS ANGELES — Chanell Temple, a black woman originally from Huntington Park, delivered a strident, politically incorrect speech against illegal immigration on Monday evening at the local city council meeting.

    Temple, who now lives in the Hawthorne area of Los Angeles, was protesting the council’s recent decision to appoint two illegal aliens to city commissions. She told Breitbart News she had not intended to speak at the meeting, but was offended when someone compared illegal aliens to slaves. She added that she supports Donald Trump “a hundred percent.”

    Here are her full remarks

    …undocumented illegal immigrants who have been assigned to the position of commissioner.

    The Huntington Park City Council is being paid with taxpayers’ money to do a job within rules and regulations. According to your board behind you, it says, “Where there is no vision, the people perish.” I want to paraphrase that and say: Where there is no law, the people perish.

    In the U.S. we have one rule of law. I also want to talk about the Fourteenth Amendment, which was added to the Constitution in regards to blacks being given birthright citizenship because blacks helped build this country, including the White House—twice.

    (Interjection: Right on!)

    Please do not tarnish the name of black slaves by comparing them to your plight. There’s no comparison. None.

    Black slaves did not break into this country, okay. They were brought here against their will. Also, black slaves are not immigrants. Immigrants are people with a choice, they come here by choice. Black slaves didn’t have choice.

    That’s offensive to me because I’m a descendant of a black slave. And trust me, Ancestry.com works and I can trace my people back from when they landed here on the boat. I know the village where my people came from in Africa, OK? So please, do not try to get away with using that. That’s very offensive.

    This country has been good to illegal immigrants. You have been given jobs, houses, tax money, free tax money, welfare, Social Security, they open up business for you guys, et cetera.

    None—I don’t know of any illegal aliens who have been hung from a tree. I don’t know of any of them illegal aliens who have dogs been sicced on. So that’s very offensive for you to sit up here and allow these people to say that and get away with it. Things that people are going to feel sorry for. That’s very offensive, OK? Do the right thing.

    My people get three strikes. I have a nephew in jail now–22 years!–for something he didn’t do.

    My people commit a crime, they go to jail. You people commit a crime, they get amnesty. It is wrong…

    (Cheers, applause)

    And we’re not going to have it. We’re not going to have a set of laws for you people and a set of laws for us.

    And if you can’t follow the law, talking about “perish,” your job needs to perish.

    You get paid with taxpayers’ money and you are misappropriating taxpayers’ money when you pick up your check.

    (Cheers, applause)

    In an interview Tuesday morning, Temple explained further:

    I grew up in the Huntington Park area. I was raised in that area. I live in Hawthorne now. That area over there has been a Latino area for decades, for a long time. They witnessed racial tension in that area. My mother was a property owner over in that area.

    What I said last night was not my intention. What kind of disturbed me is when someone got up and talked about slavery. There is no comparison. They need to stop pretending like they are being mistreated. They have pushed and disturbed the community. They have 95% of the jobs and they still act like they are mistreated.

    Yes I am black, but I’m an American. They are getting away with murder. I was in Sacramento recently, and I protested about Kate Steinle. Then they get a get-out-of-jail-free card, and my nephew is in jail. They release them–30,000, if not more–every year. They put them right back on the street and it’s not right.

    The black community–we’re tired of them citing civil rights because of people like Al Sharpton. They are being treated better than American citizens with our tax money.

    I’m just tired. I lost my job. I was told I did not speak Spanish and I was terminated from my job. Even now it’s difficult to get a job. They told me I was fired for not being able to speak Spanish. I applied to McDonald’s and they told me that they don’t hire blacks–and it was a black owner. I filed with EEOC (Equal Employment Opportunity Commission). I have my documentation. I was denied a job….But they didn’t do anything. They are putting illegal immigrants before blacks. I applied for three jobs with the County of L.A. and they didn’t give me a job, and when I filed a complaint they called me a racist. I ended up homeless.

    We have a rule of law. Why can’t they obey the law? Little do they know they are making us [Americans] closer. We are standing as Americans, as all races and colors. They want to throw out the race card. We are tired of being abused, and it’s got to stop.

    Our politicians are giving them the power in the fight against us–the people using our tax money, writing these laws and using them against us….

    Yes, black lives matter, but if we had jobs we wouldn’t be put in these situations to be attacked. A lot of parental rights have been restricted and are being taken away. There’s a lot in the black neighborhood that needs to be worked on. We need to get our house in order first and we need to get jobs back to get back on track.

    We have no recourse. We are not being represented. Now we’re in the shadows, we are being buried in the shadows.
