District 48, where was your Congressman yesterday?
Joining Forces with a well-known SoCal hate group leader to lobby against state protection for the undocumented.
As documented by the Los Angeles Times, Schaper is the California leader of Mass Resistance, a hate group marked on the Southern Poverty Law Center’s hate map for their anti-LGBT stance. According to the Times, “Schaper’s style — which includes showing up to Waters’ office with a sign reading, ‘Maxine Waters Go to Hell’ — caused the Republican Party of Los Angeles County to pull the charter from the Beach Cities Republicans club”, of which Schaper was President of the time. According to RPLOC documents, Schaper’s attacks on fellow Republicans caused the falling out.
The two men met up at yesterday’s meeting of the OC Board of Supervisors to lobby in favor of the board voting to defy SB54, the California “sanctuary law” that limits who state and local law enforcement agencies can hold, question and transfer at the request of federal immigration authorities. The Board, which is made up of five Republicans, voted as Schaper and Rohrabacher advocated.
