BREAKING NEWS – Sacramento, California – California Gov. Gavin Newsom has proposed spending more than $300 million to help law enforcement and small businesses address a recent rash of high-profile smash and grab thefts.

Under the three-year plan, the money would finance a crackdown on organized crime rings, which are believed to be carrying out the crimes.

“The issue of crime and violence is highlighted recently by some high-profile retail theft operations,” Newsom said, announcing the money would be part of his proposed state budget in January.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez emphatically disagreed with Newsom’s plan. How dare he!” she began. “He prides himself on saying California is a welcoming all-inclusive state, yet he clearly plans on cracking down on people that has their own version of Christmas shopping. This is holiday season bigotry at it’s worst!”
