Here's a new one, from the progressive land of Crap That Makes No Sense.
The ultra-leftwing state of California has hired its first illegal alien government official, in direct violation of federal law stating it’s illegal to knowingly hire a person living in the U.S. without proper documentation.
Fox News reports that “Lizbeth Mateo, 33, was appointed to a committee that advises the California Student Aid Commission, even though it is illegal to hire an undocumented immigrant.”
Mateo, 33, was born in Mexico and reportedly came to the U.S. with her parents at the age of 14. Now, thanks to nonsensical immigration policies in places like California, Mateo was able to go to school, graduate college and attend law school – all while being here illegally. She apparently passed the bar last year, presumably to practice the same law she doesn't feel the need to abide by herself.
And now, she’s an official government worker, appointed this week by the state's Senate Rules Committee.
Again, while still being here illegally.
“Mateo will not be a salaried employee, but California state policy entitles her to reimbursement for expenses - meaning that the state and taxpayers will be paying her although it is against federal law,” the report adds.
Of course, this is the same state that allows illegal aliens to avoid deportation even after committing crimes, gives them drivers’ licenses, pays for their abortions, hands them welfare benefits and taxpayer-paid health care, and clears them for in-state tuition and financial aid for college.
