Thieves are targeting cargo cars as they slow down or stop before entering the city.

Even California’s Democrat Governor Gavin Newsom has admitted that this looks like the third world.

Newsom vows crackdown: Rail car looting like ‘third world country’

California Gov. Gavin Newsom (D) visited the site of a recent wave of freight train looting and said it “looked like a third world country,” according to reports.

“It looked like a third world country, these images, the drone images that were on the nightly news,” Newsom said on Thursday as the tracks were being cleared, Reuters reported.

“This is not a one-off. This is organized theft. They’re organized groups of folks that move from site to site,” Newsom added in a video shared by the wire service.

Newsom visited Union Pacific train tracks in the city to “highlight a multiagency effort to clean up the railway,” combat theft and hold the perpetrators responsible, NewsNation reported.

Union Pacific issued a statement on Sunday saying the thefts involve “criminals trespassing on Union Pacific property, climbing aboard trains and breaking into customers’ containers loaded with cargo, packages and merchandise destined to warehouse facilities around the country.”

It is sad to see what progressive policies have done to a once beautiful state.
