In some cases it would be good. Especially if retroactive.

New Hampshire, Maine, and Vermont could close their borders to NY, MA, CT, RI, CA, and other neo-socialist regimes' citizens. Unless they can certify they are politically correct right of center and staunch constitutionalists to include the 10 amendments.

Make it 10 years retroactive, since the president and congress--past and present--seem to have no problem with unconstitutional laws, lets move on dot org.

When you consider the fact that states don't have borders, they have lines, there is no chance of closing anything. The first thing that would happen is everybody who wanted to move to a different state would sue for discrimination.

Even when you think that employers could discount anyone who has just moved into "their" state for employment, those discounted would be sued for discrimination as well. It's impossible.

There are FEDERAL laws that protect the citizens of this country. There are STATE laws that protect the residents of each state. Citizens and residents are two different categories.

Don't forget American nationals, free inhabitants, domiciled in the U.S.A.!

Sovereign Americans are not persons subject to nor object of the governing power of the servant government.

What proof exists that there are people who are NOT citizens?
"The better to secure and perpetuate mutual friendship and intercourse among the people of the different states in this union, the free inhabitants of each of these states,..., shall be entitled to all privileges and immunities of free citizens in the several states; ..."
[Article IV of the Articles of Confederation (1777)]
Did you think "everybody" born in the U.S.A. was a U.S. citizen residing at a residence?

What's an inhabitant (as in free inhabitant)?

"INHABITANT - One who resides actually and permanently in a given place, and has his domicile there."
- - - Black's Law Dictionary, Sixth Edition, p.782

"DOMICILE - A person's legal home. That place where a man has his true, fixed, and permanent home and principal establishment, and to which whenever he is absent he has the intention of returning."
- - - Black's Law Dictionary, Sixth Edition, p.484

"RESIDENCE - Place where one actually lives ... Residence implies something more than physical presence and something less than domicile. The terms 'resident' and 'residence' have no precise legal meaning... [One can have many residences but only one domicile]
- - - Black's Law Dictionary, Sixth Edition, p.1308, 1309

Isn't it peculiar that U.S. citizens can only reside as residents at a residence?
BTW - a "legal residence" is not a domicile.

Or California could have done something to keep all the people from everywhere else in this country out? The whole great depression sent millions of Americans out of their states and into the best state of them all. If you have an influx of Californians in your state, it's helping your economy, especially if they were home owners in California.

Coming from Idaho, you should talk about your state too if you are going to call Connecticut "neo-socialist" because Idaho has a 4.7% state tax and Connecticut only has a 4.0% state tax. Plus, most of the big states in the west get a lot of money from social programs and other government "socialist" programs.

The States cannot close their borders to other Americans.
