The following is a press release statement by John Cox, candidate for California Governor
California – Businessman and California Republican gubernatorial candidate John Cox issued the following statement in reaction to Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf’s efforts to help illegal aliens escape ICE.
“What Mayor Schaaf did threatens the public safety of her community and all California residents. This is symptomatic of the takeover of the California Democratic Party by the extreme Left. Their rhetoric is shrill, and she, and another former Oakland mayor and now Governor Jerry Brown, are treating federal law like a modern-day George Wallace.
The primary function of government is to protect the citizenry and ensure public safety – and on that basic duty Libby Schaaf fell far short making Californians less safe.”
