Why do the Feds agree with Sanctuary Cities but deny States the right to enforce immigration laws?


Not too long ago, the Supreme Court denied Arizona the right to enforce existing immigration laws introduced in HB-1070. There were all sorts of false rumors circulating over this bill, some as ridiculous as the bill giving law enforcement the right to just shoot any illegals they captured. Being a border state with Mexico, all Arizona wanted to do was enforce the federal laws that are being ignored by the Feds. Now, we have around 200 Sanctuary Cities, States, and Counties who choose to ignore the Federal Immigration laws. The Feds seem to be OK with this concept.

    Patti - Arizona got sued by the Feds for trying to enforce existing immigration laws. Sanctuary Cities who refuse to enforce the laws are forgiven and ignored by the Feds. Is there something aout this I am missing?

    I know your right about trying to get new voters into the country. Just about everyone who wanted a cell phone has one now so they wore out that idea.

    Austinstar - Look at the map at the top of the page and you will see where they are. These are locations that have declared themselves to be "illegal friendly". San Francisco is one of these cities where a woman was killed by an illegal recently.
