There's nothing heroic or compassionate about this; it's a cowardly and pathetic way to score political points and votes. Immigration policies are set at the national level, and courts have time after time recognized that inherent sovereign power to regulate immigration clearly resides in the federal government. I cannot wait for states, cities and people who defy our Constitution to be smacked down by President Trump

So, what makes them so special? Because they refused to comply with immigration and entry laws?
There are two ways you can stay and work in the US legally, and that is to be sponsored by family who are US citizens, or apply as a refugee seeking asylum, but I'm sure you already knew that. What if you don't qualify for either? They aren't overstaying their visas so they can party it up here, but that's precisely how you are making it sound.

This won't end well for California. Most of California is economically depressed other than a few thriving high tech areas.

Trump is thinking about selling California to China for 20 billion dollars.

California's GDP places it about 8-10 in the scale of economies. They are a world power behind Japanand ahead of S. Korea

Actually I'm all for states rights, so let them go. I'm sure the republic won't miss their contributions to the rest of the welfare states.

You didn't build that, someone else did. As you drive outside of San Francisco and pass all the homeless bums and tents all over, you will find most of the towns look like they haven't had growth since 1985.

yeah lets see how it plays out when the fed tries to withhold funding from half a dozen states. I know you think that having all 3 branches means you own the country but the GOP would risk becoming the 3rd party if they force the issue.
I know it , you know it, and most of all they know it.

Why are cities not assisting the federal government with enforcing federal law?

By the way, the federal government will win this battle, and it will be at the expense of the citizens of California.


How will the government win. What is their legal standing. A president can't just sign an executive order and poof it happens. The people will win in this case because they are protecting human beings. It's the right thing to do.
