California state lawmaker, Sen. Scott Wiener (D-San Francisco), authored a bill which Governor Jerry Brown just signed into law last week, which prevents lawyers from revealing the immigration status of crime victims and witnesses in open court unless a judge rules the information relevant to the case.

Wiener said in a Twitter post Thursday, “CA won’t be bullied by Trump and his anti-immigrant zealots,” and added, “Embracing immigrants – not terrorizing & demonizing them – is how we build safe communities.”

However, Wiener said the nation has too many guns, and too many cars.

The California senator tweeted in response to the horrific school shooting in Texas on Friday, “We will never – ever – reduce gun deaths in the United States until we look ourselves in the mirror as a society & take aggressive steps to drain the swamp & dramatically reduce the number of guns whose sole purpose is to kill as many people as possible as quickly as possible.”

 

In an earlier tweet, on Wednesday, Wiener declared, “In Los Angeles County there are 24 billion (with a B) pounds of private vehicles that can freely cruise and park on public spaces at any time. Their drivers cause over 500 fatalities and 50,000 injuries a year.”

His solution to the problem of “too many cars” – more bike lines. Wiener tweeted on Thursday, “Sacramento is rolling out a whole bunch of protected bike lanes. We need lots more of these in San Francisco.”

Another idea was to make it easier to just close up the streets and host block parties instead. Friday Wiener tweeted, “Block parties & other creative uses of our streets lead to healthier, more connected neighborhoods. A few years ago, we obtained funds for a pilot program to make it easier to get recurring street closure permits. I’m thrilled the program is now citywide.”

Wiener lambasted ICE for “harassing” illegal alien in his speech Thursday, as he thanked Governor Brown for signing the bill to protect immigrants.
