Are we going to erode all law enforcement activities with cities refusing to obey Fed. laws?


Regardless of which side of the debate you support with illegal immigration and sanctuary cities, the fact that elected leaders are vocally speaking out, telling the Fed. that they will not support existing law will most likely lead to problems in other areas. Imagine if some cities decided to ignore laws on child abuse, or molestation, of worse - Can you imagine a criminal trying to use the defense that some other laws weren't being enforced, so why should the one they are connected to be enforced? It's a dangerous precedent.

    There's a problem here. Who gets to choose which laws are objectionable? My state govt. keeps trying to pass laws that say we don't have to obey federal law we don't like, and I don't live in Calif.

    Keeping known felons from deportation, many of whom are gang members supporting the drug cartels is going to keep crime down?

    Your bottom line looks faulty.
