Part of Federalism is to abide by “The Laws of the United States”. The very purpose of our Founders granting a power to Congress to establish a uniform rule of naturalization was to prevent states from indiscriminately granting citizenship to foreigners who may then be forced upon other states.
So, sanctuary cities are now encouraging foreigners to invade our borders and seek refuge in their cities, and they eventually wind up in other cities where they inflict injury upon the good people residing there.
The fact is, sanctuary city politicians cannot lawfully stop police from reporting illegal entrants to the Feds.
See Judge Harry Leinenweber’s OPINION which confirms that State political elected hacks such Mayor Rahm Emanuel and New York City’s communist mayor Bill de Blasio, are forbidden to compel city law enforcement officers from the voluntary exchange of immigration information with the INS!
Judge Harry Leinenweber wrote:
”At its core, this case boils down to whether state and local governments can restrict their officials from voluntarily cooperating with a federal scheme. The Court has not been presented with, nor could it uncover, any case holding that the scope of state sovereignty includes the power to forbid state or local employees from voluntarily complying with a federal program. “
”The Court denies the City’s Motion for a Preliminary Injunction with respect to the compliance condition, because the City has failed to establish a likelihood of success on the merits.“
The notion that San Francisco is free to invite any foreigners into their city without any oversight by Congress is a notion without support when reviewing the legislative intent of our Constitution and various Supreme Court cases, e.g., see Head Money Cases, 112 U.S. 580 (1884)
”The act of Congress of August 8, 1882, “to regulate immigration,” which imposes upon the owners of steam or sailing vessels who shall bring passengers from a foreign port into a port of the United States, a duty of fifty cents for every such passenger not a citizen of this country, is a valid exercise of the power to regulate commerce with foreign nations.”
”The contribution levied on the ship owner by this statue is designed to mitigate the evils incident to immigration from abroad by raising a fund for that purpose, and it is not, in the sense of the Constitution, a tax subject to the limitations imposed by that instrument on the general taxing power of Congress.”
Also see, Arizona v. United States, 2012
”The Government of the United States has broad, undoubted power over the subject of immigration and the status of aliens. … This authority rests, in part, on the National Government’s constitutional power to “establish an uniform Rule of Naturalization,” U. S. Const., Art. I, §8, cl. 4, and its inherent power as sovereign to control and conduct relations with foreign nations….”
The bottom line, with reference to the subject of the thread is, State political elected hacks such as twinkle toes Mayor Rahm Emanuel and New York City’s communist mayor Bill de Blasio, are forbidden by federal law to compel city officers from the voluntary exchange of immigration information with the INS! It’s time to lock these lawless city officials up!
