Govt pulls funding for CA church, preschool serving low-income, immigrant families

State, fed officials unlawfully suspend Church of Compassion, Dayspring Learning Center in El Cajon from participating in federal food program

SAN DIEGO – On behalf of an El Cajon church and preschool that serve low-income, immigrant families, attorneys with Alliance Defending Freedom, the National Center for Law and Policy, and Advocates for Faith and Freedom filed an amended complaint and a motion for preliminary injunction Friday against the Biden administration and California state officials for unlawfully suspending Church of Compassion and Dayspring Christian Learning Center from participating in a food program simply because of their beliefs about human sexuality.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture administers the Child and Adult Food Care Program nationwide, providing funding to California and other states. The Biden administration radically expanded its interpretation of the definition of “sex” in Title IX to include sexual orientation and gender identity, and following that change, California’s Department of Social Services and the USDA issued new government mandates that prevent houses of worship and religious organizations that maintain traditional religious beliefs regarding human sexuality from continued participation in the program.

“The government is withholding food from families in need simply because their children attend a Christian preschool. This violates the U.S. Constitution and multiple federal laws that protect Church of Compassion and its preschool to operate according to the dictates of their faith,” said ADF Senior Counsel Jeremiah Galus. “Ironically, in the name of combatting discrimination, government officials have excluded the church and preschool from serving the El Cajon community based solely on their religious beliefs and exercise. This is antithetical to the First Amendment’s promise of religious freedom and only hurts needy families and children.”

Church of Compassion owns and operates Dayspring, a Christian preschool and daycare center. The church and preschool participated in the food program for nearly 20 years, receiving around $3,500-$4,500 a month to help feed impoverished students in its daycare and preschool daily during the school year and summer. El Cajon, where the church and preschool are located, has a large immigrant population and many of the families served by the church and preschool qualify for free meals under the food program.

Dayspring serves all families and children, including several LGBT families who understand and appreciate the religious instruction their children receive at the preschool. While the church and preschool serve all families, they do not teach or promote all messages.

Yet government officials demanded that Church of Compassion and Dayspring fully comply with new “sexual orientation” and “gender identity” nondiscrimination provisions, including in their religious employment practices, or forfeit the right to receive public funds used to feed needy children. Because the church and preschool’s religious beliefs and practices conflict with the new mandates, government officials unlawfully suspended them from the food program on Dec. 29, 2022.

The lawsuit explains that, by implementing the new mandates, state and federal government officials sought to force the church and preschool to surrender their sincerely held Christian beliefs and practices regarding human sexuality, including their right to hire those with shared beliefs. The government mandates also subject the church and preschool in all aspects to Title IX, including bathrooms, dress codes, and pronoun usage. The suit claims the new government directives violate the Free Exercise, Free Speech, Freedom of Association, and Establishment Clauses of the First Amendment, as well as the Religious Freedom Restoration Act and Administrative Procedure Act.

Dean Broyles of the National Center for Law and Policy and Mariah Gondeiro and Julianne Fleischer of Advocates for Faith and Freedom first filed the case, Church of Compassion v. Johnson, on behalf of the church and preschool in March. The attorneys are three of more than 4,700 lawyers who are part of the ADF Attorney Network.

In a similar case last year, Grant Park Christian Academy v. Fried, ADF attorneys successfully advocated on behalf of a Christian school in Florida that sued the Biden administration for threatening to pull the school’s lunch program funding because of its religious beliefs.

Alliance Defending Freedom is an alliance-building, non-profit legal organization committed to protecting religious freedom, free speech, parental rights, and the sanctity of life.

El Cajon Mayor Bill Wells Speaks Out Against New Law Giving Free In-State Tuition to People from Mexico

The message is abundantly clear to all Americans: many politicians seem to be out of touch with the people they represent.



El Cajon — On Friday, Governor Gavin Newsom signed a bill that permits individuals from Mexico to receive free in-state tuition in California. Virtue signaling like this is only made so much more ridiculous by how incredibly difficult the real problems are in our region. American students across the nation are grappling with exorbitant college debt burdens. Allowing Mexican students to pay reduced in-state tuition is a disservice to the millions of American students facing this financial challenge.

This is emblematic of a growing pattern in our county, state, and country, where the needs of U.S. citizens are being disregarded. San Diego County allocates resources to provide attorneys for undocumented immigrants in their immigration cases, alongside a $3 million expenditure on migrant services. Meanwhile, the state of California extends in-state tuition benefits to individuals from Mexico. At the federal level, billions of dollars are directed to foreign countries like Ukraine and Iran. All while Americans see inflation at record levels.

The message is abundantly clear to all Americans: many politicians seem to be out of touch with the people they represent. There is an alarming trend in our county, state, and country to overlook the pressing needs of Americans while allocating taxpayer dollars to issues beyond our borders.

It is time to elect leaders who will prioritize the needs of American citizens and work towards improving their lives.

March 27, 2024

The Eclipse YouTube channel has uploaded video of QUEENSRŸCHE's March 26 performance at the Hell's Heroes festival at Sycuan Live And Up Close in El Cajon, California. Check out the clips below.

The band's setlist was as follows:"Queensrÿche" EP

01. Queen Of The Reich02. Nightrider03. Blinded04. The Lady Wore Black

"The Warning" album

05. Warning06. En Force07. Deliverance08. No Sanctuary09. NM 15610. Take Hold Of The Flame11. Before The Storm12. Child Of Fire13. Roads To Madness


14. Prophecy15. Empire

Although QUEENSRŸCHE would score multi-platinum albums and hit singles over their career, their fans have developed an undeniable love for the group's early releases, the 1983 EP and 1984's "The Warning" album, when they helped trailblaze a style of rock that combined elements of metal and prog. And for the first time ever, QUEENSRŸCHE is performing both classic releases in their entirety as part of "The Origins Tour".

Launching on March 22 at the Hell's Heroes festival in Houston, Texas and running until May 12 in Ft. Meyers, Florida, "The Origins Tour" sees QUEENSRŸCHE — singer Todd La Torre, guitarists Michael Wilton and Mike Stone, bassist Eddie Jackson and drummer Casey Grillo — joined on most dates by another highly respected/influential band that also launched in the '80s, ARMORED SAINT.

When "The Origins Tour" was first announced, La Torre said in a statement: "We are thrilled to bring to you 'The Origins Tour'. This will be the first time in QUEENSRŸCHE's history that the EP and 'The Warning' will be performed live in their entirety. And to make this an even more stellar tour, we are so excited that our great friends and legendary metallers ARMORED SAINT will be joining us as direct support. We are all proud to bring you this touring package and we can't wait to see you on the road."

He added: "Join us for this unique and very special experience, as we celebrate the origins of QUEENSRŸCHE. Take hold!"

Early last year, QUEENSRŸCHE completed its 2023 U.S. headlining tour with support from former MEGADETH guitarist Marty Friedman and TRAUMA. On that tour, QUEENSRŸCHE's 18-song set included no less than five songs from the band's sixteenth studio album, "Digital Noise Alliance", which came out in October 2022 via Century Media. The record was once again helmed by Chris "Zeuss" Harris, who previously worked with QUEENSRŸCHE on 2015's "Condition Hüman" and 2019's "The Verdict" LPs.

Stone, who rejoined QUEENSRŸCHE in 2021, contributed guitar solos to the band's new studio album.

Since late May 2021, Stone has been handling second-guitar duties in QUEENSRŸCHE, which announced in July 2021 that longtime guitarist Parker Lundgren was exiting the group to focus on "other business ventures."

Stone originally joined QUEENSRŸCHE for the 2003 album "Tribe" and stayed with the band for six years before leaving the group.

For the past seven years, drummer Casey Grillo has been filling in for original QUEENSRŸCHE drummer Scott Rockenfield, who stepped away from the band's touring activities in early 2017 to spend time with his young son.

In October 2021, Rockenfield filed a lawsuit against guitarist Michael Wilton and bassist Eddie Jackson, alleging, among other things, breach of contract, breach of fiduciary duty and wrongful discharge. A few months later, Wilton and Jackson filed a countersuit against Rockenfield, accusing him of abandoning his position as a member of the band and misappropriating the group's assets to his own personal benefit. That dispute has since been settled out of court.

Queensrÿche storms back to town at Live & Up Close Theater on TUESDAY, March 26! Tickets start at $69 | 8PM Showtime. Get your tickets TODAY! Details:
