Your Central Valley reported on protester Ben Bergquam:
Before Gavin Newsom declared the eyes of America were on California.
“I object! I object,” shouted Ben Bergquam as he protested the swearing-in of California’s 40th governor.
Bergquam explained why he began to yell out that moment.
“He’s already broken that oath. It was a slap in the face to every American citizen, to Ronil Singh’s family in particular. Every American citizen that’s been victimized by the policies that he put into place. It was the absolutely appropriate time to call him out,” said Bergquam.
“Corporal Ronil Singh’s blood is on your hands,” yelled Bergquam before being walked out.
During the brief protest, Bergquam brought up the sanctuary state law. He says the murder of Newman Police Officer Ronil Singh should be blamed on politicians in favor of SB54. The man accused of shooting Singh to death, is Pablo Virgen Mendoza, a Mexican national who officials say entered the US illegally.
