New California declares 'independence' from California, hopes to become 51st state

This undated image shows a map in which California would be divided into two states 'New California' declares independence, wants to break off from rest of state to form new one

The putative state has issued a declaration of independence which says it wants to create a "free, sovereign and independent state of New California due to the past and current government of California having failed".

While there are many signs around the Mother Lode calling for a State of Jefferson, a new group has formed proposing to expand the area that would encompass a 51st state.

The proposed split would see most of the densely populated coastal cities stay in California, while the rest of the rural part of the state would become New California. New California would become the sixth largest state behind NY and "It's (sic) Estimated 25-27 seats in the US House of Representatives will go to New California".

New California founders argue current California is "governed by a tyranny" and that under the U.S. Declaration of Independence and Constitution, they have a right to institute a new government.

On its website, the secessionist movement claims that California is now ruled by "a tyrannical form of government" and promises that New California "will restore liberty and rights".

African Union: Trump 's***hole' remarks dishonor 'American creed'
In Senegal's capital Dakar, administrator Idrissa Fall said "we can not really say that he (Trump) is wrong". There is some internal West Wing debate over whether Trump said "shithole" or "shithouse".

"After years of over taxation, regulation, and mono-party politics the State of California and many of it's 58 Counties have become ungovernable", they explained in a statement. "We are over-taxed, the education system is beaten down, our business climate is awful".

The group said it will take 10 to 18 months before they are fully prepared to work with the state legislature.

"Yes. We have to demonstrate that we can govern ourselves before we are allowed to govern", founder Tom Reed told CBS.

But unlike other separation movements in the past, the state of New California wants to do things by the book, citing Article 4, Section 3 of the U.S. Constitution and working with the state legislature to get it done, similar to the way West Virginia was formed.
