California and Donald Trump are going to war over the recent immigration ban. The President threatened to defund a few of California’s programs for defending its sanctuary cities (though if the state doesn’t remit federal tax, it’d probably be OK — it’s one of a few states that pay out more than it receives).
The more interesting movement is a tiny push for Washington State, Oregon, California, and maybe even Nevada to pull a #calexit, and maybe even join Canada. Which, to the delight of Cascadian-Americans, will open up a lot of the social programs, health care and general left-wing lovability that Canadians project into the world. Without Obama in office, Trudeau is probably the last “feel-good” leader left. Interesting to think about.
