Tenth Amendment
Immigration policy, and granting of citizenship has long been the domain of the federal government. Not local municipalities.

Trump isn't going to order mass deportations -- I'm willing to bet on it.

So then the feds are clearly in violation of the tenth Amendment to the Constitution.

Interesting position held by many, but not all. Generally speaking, Hispanos in New Mexico consider themselves Spanish-American citizens of the United States and have no special love for Mexico, a distant master for a mere 27 years (1821-1848) between the hegemony of New Spain and the following status of being a US territory, then state, after the treaty of Guadalupe.

That doesn't mean New Mexican Hispanos don't like Mexico as a country or dislike its citizens, there is just no sense that this land is somehow unjustifiably part of the United States. With the exception of a few anti-Anglo, pseudo-intellectual Chicano-fetishists with their Che T-shirts.

My friend Jeff has succeeded so far not once, but twice, in his fight to keep these records from being destroyed!

Just now Judge Minardo ordered Viverito the Communist and Herr DeBalsio to testify under oath on January 5th to defend their illegal attempts to defend criminals. The left is in shambles, we just keep winning!

Cities like NYC, LA, and SF would not be panicking if this wasn't the case.

Trump will say "Hey, I was just kidding about deportations, can't you guys take a joke?"

His talk about mass deportations has been tempered and replaced with calls from protecting Dreamers and others without criminal records. He is still adamant about building the wall, which makes no sense.

I never understood why they never started a resident card program for SI residents so they get free ferry service and everyone else has to pay something. At worst, it should be free for NYC residents but a charge for outsiders especially tourists who are literally getting a free ride
