Sara Carter railed against California politics Sunday, saying that many in the state are “unhappy” with Governor Gavin Newsom. Meanwhile, taxes are on the rise and an increasing number of Californians are left unemployed. Carter appeared on The Next Revolution with Steve Hilton on Sunday to discuss the state’s issues.

During Carter’s visits to California to cover the ongoing border crisis, she’s spoken to locals about their political opinions. Plus, she grew up in the state and still has family there. “The fastest growing population in California is the Latino community,” Carter said. “They’re frustrated with Gavin Newsom. They’re unhappy with the way he’s running the state. Their unemployment rates are skyrocketing. Taxes are skyrocketing.”

Meanwhile, Newsom faces a recall election, which could remove him from office. According to Carter, his removal is likely.

Then, Carter shared her insight when she reported on the Pomona Valley School District in California. Her stories included gang relations among students and illiteracy rates among high school juniors.

“The foundation of our school systems, our public school systems, is rotten,” Carter said. “So, we need to empower parents. Give parents back the power to choose.”

Michigan asks residents to house migrants, enroll children in school and help adults find employment

Michigan is asking its residents to help with the mess its leadership created and house migrants in their own homes. The state Department of Labor and Economic Development said volunteers who participate must commit for at least 90 days as part of the refugee support program.

In addition to opening up their homes, sponsors are expected to support newly arrived refugees by greeting them at the airport, securing and preparing initial housing, enrolling children in school and helping adults find employment.

“Programs like the Welcome Corps advance the Office of Global Michigan’s mission to make Michigan the home for opportunity for our immigrant, refugee and ethnic communities,” said Poppy Hernandez, Global Michigan Director and Michigan’s Chief Equity and Inclusion Officer. “Expanded refugee resettlement pathways empower more Michiganders to support our state’s growing refugee population and build a more welcoming and inclusive Michigan for all.”

The migrants will come from Cuba, Haiti, Nicaragua and Venezuela, all points of origin where many have been hoping to apply for asylum at the U.S.-Mexico border.

Fox News reports “cities like New York and Chicago have also dealt with issues related to migrants committing crimes, as well as pushback from residents who have voiced anger and concern over the influx. Migrant shelters in those cities have largely been full, forcing officials to come up with ways to safely house the migrants.”

Last year, Massachusetts officials asked residents to open their doors as migrant shelters were full at the time. “Most importantly, if you have an extra room or suite in your home, please consider hosting a family. Housing and shelter is our most pressing need and become a sponsor family,” said Massachusetts Lt. Governor Kim Driscoll.
