New California declares 'independence' in bid to become 51st state

New California would be the 51st state to join the union 'New California' declares independence, wants to break off from rest of state to form new one

The new state, as envisioned, would exclude parts of California along the coastline from Orange County north to Napa County; New California would include all other parts of California, including San Diego County, leaving the coastal stretch as California.

The "declaration" called for a "free and Independent State" with 'full power to establish and maintain law and order, to promote general prosperity'.

Claiming the authority of Article 4, Section 3 of the U.S. Constitution, the aspiring 51st state plans to convince California's Legislature to split the state before submitting the resolution to Congress. According to a New California press release, the separation is authorized by the U.S. Constitution and has become necessary because the "current state of California has become governed by a tyranny". Despite being mostly symbolic, Preston said, the idea is gaining popularity among Californians who are critical of the state's Democratic leadership.

The Post reports past proposals sought to create six new states and one to combine parts of California and OR to make a new state called Jefferson. It seems to really be going across party lines at this point.

The example the New California founders cite is West Virginia, which broke away from the Confederate state of Virginia during the Civil War in 1861. This where the majority of the Black and brown people, while the other cities in "New California" are overwhelming white and segregated.

However, the group is not planning to march into Sacramento and overthrow the California legislature. Just take a look at this recent Public Policy Institute of California map, which has some striking similarities to the New California proposal: In any event, Humboldt County is listed as an "interested" county by the group, whatever that means.

Two men have captured this frustration in the New California Movement, which aims to divide California into two states. There have been multiple efforts for portions of the state, or the entire state, to gain independence.
