- Political activist Laura Loomer was in Sacramento Superior Court today after being prosecuted for trespassing on California Governor Gavin Newsom’s mansion nearly 2 months ago.
- Loomer, with the help of conservative radio host Ben Bergquam, was protesting Newsom’s questionable sanctuary city policies on his front lawn.
- The DA wanted them sentenced to 15 days in jail, 3 months of probation, and a trespass notice to stay away from the Governor’s mansion.
- This morning, Loomer and Bergquam’s attorney, David Wohl, was able to get all charges dismissed.
Prompted by the debate on illegal immigration, Laura Loomer and Ben Bergquam protested against California Governor Gavin Newsom’s sanctuary city policies at his Sacramento mansion in late January of this year. After jumping over Newsom’s fence onto his property and with loudspeaker in hand, Laura and her crew attracted the attention of local police rather quickly. She and Bergquam were both arrested and charged with trespassing.
The DA wanted them to go to jail, but all charges were dismissed after a court hearing this morning in Sacramento.
Laura had a post on Instagram discussing the court proceedings. She was wearing a t-shirt with a picture of Ruben Morfin, a 13 year old boy who was shot in the back of his head by an illegal alien from Mexico. His mother is now an Angel Mom who was also in court today supporting Laura and Ben.
Laura ended her post by saying, “The dismissal of my charges is a victory for America. This is a victory for LEGAL immigration. And it’s a victory for independent journalism!”
