Siskiyou Secession Talk

Siskiyou County Supervisors Brandon Criss (for) and Ed Valenzuela (against) talk about the declaration of desire to separate from the state of California.

The "State of Jefferson" concept never translated into an actual state, but the idea is alive and well.  Siskiyou County Supervisors recently voted to pursue seceding from California, due to frustrations with a perceived lack of attention from the federal and state governments.  How far will it go?  You'll hear from supervisors pro and con.  

The flag for the would-be State of Jefferson features not a pair of Xs, but a double-cross.
