  • Chris Marengo

    Exhibit A why people despise attorneys. This statist hack will enforce only laws he likes and slough off laws he doesn‘t like, like a good little Marxist.

  • L. Straus

    Mr. Becerra is just another grievance-groupthink spokesman who‘s never run anything but his mouth.

  • Jim Trott

    Piece of work. Just curious when he swears to uphold the laws, is he going to only enforce those he agrees with or enforce the law.

  • John P. Hurabiell

    What an ass. Illegal immigration is precisely that--illegal. You are there to enforce laws not to abridge them
