The Democrats are pushing insane policies all across the country.

California recently passed a law trying to allow non-citizens to become police officers in The Golden State.

Virginians are thankful for the veto pen of Governor Glenn Youngkin, which is protecting them from some insane ideas from their Democrat controlled legislature.

Winsome Sears praises vetoes from Virginia Governor

Virginia’s Republican Lt. Governor Winsome Sears is happy about a series of 22 recent vetoes made by Governor Glenn Youngkin.

The Governor nixed the bills from the Democrat-majority state legislature, including one bill that would have allowed some immigrants to become police officers.

Sears was also thankful for the Governor’s decision to reject bills that would “weaken criminal penalties.”

The Lt. Governor spoke to FOX Business, emphasizing that Virginians must be protected from the effects of the current border crisis under President Joe Biden.

Sears said that Virginia and states like Texas, New Mexico, and others are feeling the effects.

“Here’s the situation – we just have all become border states, and by the way, you notice that those states that claim to be… sanctuary states, sanctuary cities – suddenly they’re backing away from it when they realize that no, actually, Texas is not going to bear the burden of all of the folks coming across the border illegally, you’re going to have to share some of the pain,” said Sears.

Appearing on The Big Money Show, Sears said Youngkin’s series of vetoes was done for “the protection of the residents of Virginia” and to ensure that people coming into the state and the nation from other countries “mean us well and not ill.”

Sears was born in Kingston, Jamaica, and said she had to go through the same vetting process she expects today’s immigrants to go through.

She said, “I had to go through that process. When I joined the Marine Corps, I was actually a Green Card holder. But I swore to uphold, protect, and defend the Constitution of our great United States.”

The Lt. Governor added, “Some of these people… said that you could simply become a law enforcement officer. Excuse me, we don’t even know who you are. We don’t know your intentions. You could have good intentions, but we don’t know that.”

Youngkin vetoed bills to hold criminals accountable

Regarding the vetoes, Youngkin said in a statement that the ones he rejected were written to “protect illegal immigrants, or impede law enforcement officers, prosecutors, and judges from holding criminals accountable and bringing them to justice.”

Sears agreed that none of the original bills made sense.

Meanwhile, an initial plan to move the NBA’s Washington Wizards and NHL’s Washington Capitals out of D.C. to a new commercial area across the Potomac near Ronald Reagan-Washington National Airport has stalled.

The project was highly celebrated by team executives and lawmakers, which included legislation to create a $2 billion entertainment district in Potomac Yards.

However, the plan was blocked in February in the State Senate Finance & Appropriations Committee.

Sears hopes the plans aren’t doomed forever, noting that the legislature refused to allow an estimated $12 billion, 30,000 job boost, saying that it was “for the good of Virginia.”
