A California resident who emigrated to the United States legally pushed back on Tuesday after California Governor Gavin Newsom approved a plan to allow undocumented residents to obtain state IDs.
Mike Diaz told Fox & Friends First host Carley Shimkus that the idea “is part of a much bigger problem” that will drive illegal immigration to the United States.
“It’s a small part of a much larger agenda that Democrats have, and the message that liberal Democrats in California are sending is clear,” he said.

“They say, ‘Look, the border is wide open. Use it,'” he added.
Diaz then listed the ways illegal immigration is encouraged in America, including free education and resettlement where they wish to reside.
He said it was “clearly not fair” to people like him who came to the United States through a legal process and waited years for citizenship.
Diaz also pointed to the fiscal implications of the policies, noting the mass exodus of Californians to other cheaper states such as Texas and Florida.

“These policies are clearly not sustainable. You can tax Californians to death, and that’s why Californians are moving to other states…” he said.
Diaz said Democrats are “absolutely” implementing the new ID policy in an effort to allow illegal residents of the state to vote in the future, especially in hopes they will lend their support to the Democratic Party. .
