Apparently someone forgot to inform these judges that the Constitution grants the powers not delegated to the states to the people as well.
The 10th Amendment clearly depicts what the States can do:
The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to
I have yet to see anything the grants the Federal Government power over the states when it comes to immigration. Yes the have laws pertaining too
employment, but nothing within the Constitution that grants the power to supersede a states actions.
Now some would try to use the 14th Amendment as a basis of argument. How ever, that particular Amendment is Unconstitutional anyhow though it was
signed and passed on the premise of something good.
it is argued that Congress has complete authority over immigration. But i have seen no such wording with the Constitution. Only articles that pertain
to this topic.
Now USC § 1251. Original jurisdiction defines the governing authority over immigrants:
(a) The Supreme Court shall have original and exclusive jurisdiction of all controversies between two or more States.
(b) The Supreme Court shall have original but not exclusive jurisdiction of:
(1) All actions or proceedings to which ambassadors, other public ministers, consuls, or vice consuls of foreign states are parties;
(2) All controversies between the United States and a State;
(3) All actions or proceedings by a State against the citizens of another State or against aliens.
However, it is widely argued, in court even, that when the federal government fails to protect its borders by any means necessary, it is the Right of
the State to take the reigns, for that respected states borders.
As noted above, the 10th Amendment supersedes the USC period. And that is the argument that is ongoing in the courts currently.
The Fact is, the Fed's have failed at their duties with our borders, immigration, and you can ( inset here ) the numerous amounts of failings in part
by our Government. With that, I condone the actions of the state AZ., who are simply taking the necessary steps to secure the Southern Border, also
to implement stability in the region, and halt all illegal immigration as well as illegal drug trafficking. Two birds with one stone.
May other states follow their example, and push for a more peaceful nation, one with lower population issues, and one with less gang related crime.
