Governor Brown has expressed his intent to defy Federal / Presidential orders to deport criminal illegal aliens. But weather this past week has dumped enough rain to endanger 350,000 legal residents with sudden floods. The money that is being spent to maintain all the services for those illegal immigrants could have been spent on infrastructure, including the Oroville dam.
It looks like the whole west coast is in for another week of the same weather pattern. Brown may be swept away himself before this is over.
