I thought that Obama had settled both the law and the constitution when he sued to prevent Arizona from providing their own guards and patrols on its border with Mexico. By arguing that only the Federal government and the executive branch had the authority to patrol and protect the borders, not the various states, he established that fact with the Supreme Court, and liberals were pleased that the border with Mexico would remain open to all comers, because the do-nothing Obama administration was intent on the border not being strictly controlled. The Supreme Court agreed with Obama’s lawyers and Arizona gave up their attempts to protect their citizens from potentially dangerous people crossing their border.
But now that the Trump administration has told sanctuary cities that the federal government will withhold certain federal grant funds if the cities don’t follow federal law and let the Feds decide how to handle immigrants who are here illegally, liberals, on the bench, in the liberal press and in the legislature, are all offended with this policy, which is exactly what the Obama administration defended. The difference of course is that President Trump is serious about defending our borders from invasion, and liberals know it and fear it.
When a liberal Democrat is president and won’t enforce federal law the judges declare that the states can’t decide how and when to guard the borders and deal with illegals, but when Donald Trump decides that sanctuary cities and states must abide by federal law concerning immigration and defer to the federal government to handle this area of the law, the judges of the ninth circuit court reverse their stand and come down on the side of the misbehaving cities, the exact opposite of their decision under the Obama administration.
This is pure lawlessness on the part of liberal judges and mayors, and this kind of insane decision-making undermines our government and our long-standing rule of law.
Liberals, whether on the bench or in the legislature, are losing their minds with President Trump in office, and they are severely hurting our nation in the bargain.
