If the federal well dries up where will we turn to next? How will we fund our black hole esque pension programs? We already pay a "bag tax" and a "sugary drink tax." What's next? A "crosswalk use tax?" I'm continuously perplexed by the city in which I reside.

Not enforcing something isn't really the same as undermining it.


It is when everyone knows your doing it. Their refusal to follow imagration policies is well known. And as such undermines the federal law.

Rumors have it that everybody must get an IPASS so they can pay for "Green Lights".

The Supreme Court will back the Justice Department and all sanctuary cities will lose.

In Arizona v. United States the Supreme Court ruled that immigration is federal law and states or cities may not pursue policies that undermine federal law.”


Citation please? I want to read about that

Lets say Michael Jordan didn't like the way his team was going about getting the championship so he sat in the middle of the court with his arms crossed as his team played their best. They then lose the championship.

By your logic Jordan didn't undermine his team's ability to win the championship by doing nothing. No one with an I.Q. above Forrest Gump or even Gump himself would go for this.

In that example he took to the court and used the resource of another player on the team. Not undermining them would be sitting on the sidelines refusing to go.

They announced to the world theyre a haven for illiagal activity so yes they undermining federal law and should lose federal aide til they change their tone and place resources to help one of their numerous crimes committed in Chicago.

Gangs and politicians (same thing) run that town and you want unrestricted haven?

This isn't about state rights this is about democrats seeking reelection

Now we are getting somewhere.

The officials that are refusing to uphold the immigration laws are therefore essentially refusing to play ball although they ARE on the court and ARE using resources by receiving a tax payer sponsored paycheck.

So, they are suing because they don't like the repercussions for breaking Federal Law? This is a LOL lawsuit and should be thrown out ASAP.


Not a fan of states rights I see.

The Supremacy Clause gives Congress the power to preempt state law. A statute may contain an express preemption provision, see, e.g., Chamber of Commerce of United States of America v. Whiting, 563 U. S. ___, ___, but state law must also give way to federal law in at least two other circumstances. First, States are precluded from regulating conduct in a field that Congress has determined must be regulated by its exclusive governance. See Gade v. National Solid Wastes Management Assn., 505 U. S. 88. Intent can be inferred from a framework of regulation “so pervasive . . . that Congress left no room for the States to supplement it” or where a “federal interest is so dominant that the federal system will be assumed to preclude enforcement of state laws on the same subject.” Rice v. Santa Fe Elevator Corp., 331 U. S. 218. Second, state laws are preempted when they conflict with federal law, including when they stand “as an obstacle to the accomplishment and execution of the full purposes and objectives of Congress.” Hines v. Davidowitz, 312 U. S. 52. Pp. 7–8.

No need to post a source, that's the law, Google it.

Attempting to defend your corrupt city is just sad. He makes himself look more so like the idiot he is. He's breaking the laws and wants Sessions to break laws as well.

Here. Arizona wasn't even allowed to help enforce immigration law the Fed wasn't enforcing.


In a decision sure to ripple across the political landscape in a presidential election year, the court's 5-3 ruling upheld the authority of the federal government to set immigration policy and laws.
"The National Government has significant power to regulate immigration," Justice Anthony Kennedy wrote in the majority opinion. "Arizona may have understandable frustrations with the problems caused by illegal immigration while that process continues, but the State may not pursue policies that undermine federal law."
