CA governor Newsom: ‘Sanctuary to all who seek it’

California’s new governor, Gavin Newsom, gave notice in his inauguration speech yesterday that a bright new day was dawning for the state under his “progressive, principled leadership.”

He says children should not be “ripped away from their parents” at the border, and they also shouldn’t be left hungry while Trump pledges to spend billions of dollars on “a wall that should never be built.”
