Actually, if they voted to deliberately and intentionally encourage or induce illegal immigration, they in fact can be charged and prosecuted for violating that specific Federal Law.

Here's WHY this is an interesting situation... Had local/city/state authorities NOT made such a big deal out of publicly announcing themselves as "sanctuary" cities/states, and had NOT publicly announced that they would protect illegal aliens, it would have been much harder to prosecute them.

However, given idiotic public statements made by several city/state authorities, there is no doubt that they deliberately and intentionally are encouraging/inducing illegal immigration.

For example...

"Chicago will always be a sanctuary city." - Rahm Emanuel

Immigration issue provides Emanuel with chance to stand up to Trump - Chicago Tribune

That is the posters argument. He argues that voting for such rules makes you guilty of encouraging illegal immigration. It is his personal opinion, since there isn't a single court in US which agrees. If that argument becomes legit, then it means people can get in legal trouble for voting for anything the federal government does not agree with (legalizing pot is one example).

Why does there need to be a law to cooperate?

How does it not? Think about it... If the local/city/state officials instead passed rules that they'll protect those who rob banks or kidnap others (also Federal Offenses), how would that not encourage bank robbing or kidnapping in that local/city/state area?

I'm not familiar with the law/position he's arguing.

But if it's true, I doubt the Feds would use that as opposed to officials failing to cooperate in the execution of a warrant.

Seems to me that that would have a lot more teeth in court.

I wonder what happens if someone sues a sanctuary city after their loved one gets killed by an illegal alien who got released due to sanctuary city guidelines.

If he was arrested for murder and then released, then that would be a problem, but if he was arrested for failing to pay a speeding fine, then I don't think they'd have a case.
