Here's what I don't get....What exactly do they think is going to happen, after he's sworn in? Do they think he'll just ignore their tantrums? Let them ignore the laws and do what they want?
How loud are they going to cry when he cuts off Federal funding?
How loud will they cry when he sends in the National Guard to quell riots?
I'm all for State's Rights, but when they thumb their nose at Federal law, such as sheltering illegals, a President can't just let that go.

Trump can't cut off funding. Congress has to do that and similar actions in the recent past have not been successful.
That is true however with the GOP controlling both the house and the Senate for the next two years at least.... we all might be surprised at what he can accomplish
I remember threads on this very board on how the GOP was going to lose both houses and how they were basically going to die out as far as a political power for the foreseeable future.. Well those who said that then were wrong and anyone with half a brain should sit back and judge by the fruits of our new presidents labors... Not the crystal ball of the "wrong every time" MSN like CNN.

And I'm pointing out how I agree with you because its been happening for longer than you've been alive. Maybe instead of immediately adopting a combative tone with someone, you try reading their words first?
The penalty for felony harboring is a fine and imprisonment for up to five years.
A person (including a group of persons, business, organization or local government) commits a federal felony when he:
assists an alien whom he should reasonably know is illegally in the U.S. or who lacks employment authorization, by transporting, sheltering, or assisting him to obtain employment,
encourages that alien to remain in the U.S., by referring him to an employer, by acting as employer or agent for an employer in any way, or
knowingly assists illegal aliens due to personal convictions.
Penalties upon conviction include criminal fines, imprisonment, and forfeiture of vehicles and real property used to commit the crime.
Conspiracy to commit the crimes of sheltering, harboring, or employing illegal aliens is a separate federal offense punishable by a fine of up to $10,000 or five years imprisonment.
