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."


Thanks.

That's frigging crazy. I guess Arizona being able to enforce immigration laws depends on who is in office higher up huh?

Heads need to roll with these idiot city officials harboring illegal immigrants.

If Trump wants to end the sanctuary city policy, he should promote legislation that would make cities financially responsible for any illegal aliens that they capture and don't turn over to ICE who go on to commit crimes.

Simple

No need.. it's already illegal in the first place... Congress has a bad enough image creating more legislation than needed.

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.

How is this a States rights issue? Show me where the Constitution gives immigration policy to the States.

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

Right, it's exactly the same thing.

That would be the point of cutting Federal Funds to sanctuary cities. Without those funds, the city is financially responsible for all their citizens, illegals they are protecting included.

Learner's definition of UNDERMINE. : to make (someone or something) weaker or less effective usually in a secret or gradual way.

By not enforcing a federal directive you are by definition making said directive "less effective."

Play semantics all you want but not enforcing is the same thing as undermining.
