Governor Brown talks about speeding up process during U.S.-Mexico border crisis

California Governor Jerry Brown in a speech this week declared that all Mexicans, including illegal immigrants, are welcome in California. While introducing Mexican President Enrique Peńa Nieto, who said America is "the other Mexico," Brown "spoke about the interwoven histories of Mexico and California." Brown reportedly "nodded to the immigrants in the room, saying it didn't matter if they had permission to be in the United States."

LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) - "You're all welcome in California," Brown reportedly said.

Brown has made California a sanctuary state by signing the Trust Act, giving driver's licenses to illegal immigrants. Brown has also expanded financial aid to illegal immigrants by signing the California DREAM Act. Mexican President Peńa Nieto reportedly "thanked state officials for embracing foreigners, citing measures that extend state benefits to immigrants."

Brown, even in the darkest days of the U.S. - Mexico border crisis, reportedly vowed "to find ways to shorten long waits at the Tijuana-San Diego international border crossing," saying, "If we can put a man on the moon, we can put a man from Mexico to California in 20 minutes."

In 2012, 28 percent of Californians were born outside the United States, according to The New York Times. Hispanic voters reportedly "made up 19.2 percent of California voters" in 2010. According to Pew Research, Latinos make up nearly 40 percent of the state's population and have made California "only the second state, behind New Mexico, where whites are not the majority and Latinos are the plurality."

While the University of California has admitted a record number of Hispanics, the Latino Caucus has vowed to make affirmative action and bilingual education top legislative priorities.

President Nieto also addressed the California State Legislature in Sacramento this week.
