Open your mind, insert knowledge. Without state enforcement, none of these "federal" laws/programs could be enforced. The feds even bribe (give money) the states for their assistance. Without the support of the states, bought and paid for or intimidated into that support, the fed has no power. That is the real reason that they are sueing any state that tries to do their job for them.

So the feds need the states to do their work for them, that's why the feds are suing states that do their work for them.

Yes, please insert more knowledge.

The states all make it illegal for a person under 21 to buy booze. The Feds said so.

Im also enough to remember when 55 was the speed limit cause the Feds said so.

OK, you've kinda got a point with this one. But the states are still not enforcing a federal law in that case (each state still sets their own drinking age).

Well again, the states weren't enforcing a federal law - the federal law didn't make speeding a crime; it placed restrictions on states, not drivers (and it has been repealed anyway).

Serious question, are you using some sort of speech-to-text software? Because the punctuation here is really weird and this doesn't look like other posts you've made.

Yeah, Mexico doesn't want to give up its $22 billion a year coming in from illegals in the U.S. Plus it also means the (corrupt) Mexican government doesn't need to shell out pesos for its people. Shame, shame.

If Mexico would treat its citizens as well as we treat illegals, then its citizens wouldn't want to come over here.

Of course states enforce federal laws, as do local jurisdictions. Canít state and local police arrest for drug possession, firearm violations, ID theft, fraud, embezzlement? All are federal offenses. They certainly donít have to ignore drug dealers or gun-toting gangbangers until officials from the DEA or ATF arrive to handle matters. Likewise, they should have the authority to enforce immigration laws.

Ah, yeah, it's not like there are no local laws against drugs, or regulating firearms, etc. Seriously, firearms regulations specifically are probably the MOST variable from state to state. I don't see how anyone who is actually thinking about this enough to post in this thread could think that "firearm violations" are some unambiguously federal offense.
