Are you sure you want a sanctuary state?
At least one judge has ruled unconstitutional the 2017 state law that made California a “sanctuary state” where our country’s immigration laws do not apply (https://abc7.com/politics/oc-judge-rules-californias-sanctuary-state-law-unconstitutional/4356877/).
A Superior Court judge struck down the law on the grounds that it violates the rights of charter cities (121 of them) to police themselves. The law forbade local police forces to communicate with federal authorities, like ICE (Immigration & Customs Enforcement), in cases involving illegal aliens.
Gee, who’d’a thunk it? A state declares federal law, enacted by Congress, to be null and void within its borders… Uh, wasn’t there a spot of trouble about that, back in the 1860s?
If the U.S. Constitution is not the law of the land, then there is no law of the land: but only 50 different sets of laws, and no country at all, but only a name on the map.
That still leaves us utterly perplexed as to why anyone would want their state declared a sanctuary for illegal aliens. Well, OK, Democrats want to replace the electorate with a lot of Third World peasants they can easily dominate, and certain Republican donors want cheap labor (although if the labor force can’t afford to buy the goods and services, then where are you?)–but those are not reasons for normal people.
