Could you tell me what part of the Constitution is being violated?

They can't go to the Supreme Court because nothing has been done and nothing is going to be done.

Its easier and more politically expedient to claim so called sanctuary cities are the problem while ignoring the obvious problem you mentioned.

"Those who hate big government think"

That's a pretty BIG claim.

What you DON'T understand is that we do want government.

What I (I do NOT attempt to speak for others like you do) WANT, is to stray away from the Constitution.

I note, I find that mostly those on the left use "hate" a lot.

As they say, Those that cast the insult are usually the one who are GUILTY of the insult", so WHY do YOU HATE so much?

"think it's OK when they want the federal government to tell state and local municipalities what laws they should prioritize their resources on."

As usual you are sadly mistaken.

So the U.S. would obviously be poorer and more dangerous absent sanctuary cities.
"Sanctuary cities are the safest major cities in the U.S"

Now THAT is funny!

"Residents want police to devote their time to capturing violent felons rather than" "minor traffic violation"

Please, PLEASE only speak for YOURSELF!

I wish people like you, who THINK they know everything would just STOP assuming they KNOW what EVERYBODY else THINKS.

You make yourself look worse then foolish with such claims.

"Blackburn is a professional Republican"

What is a "professional Republican"?

And how does it differ from a a professional Democrat.

"and Christian."

So?

What difference does it make or are you an anti-Christian bigot?

Are you so insecure in your beliefs you have to insult and belittle anyone who you don't agree with?

How shallow!

In the 1992 case, New York v. United States, the Court ruled that Congress couldn’t require states to enact specified waste disposal regulations.

In Prigg v. Pennsylvania (1842), Justice Joseph Story held that the federal government could not force states to implement or carry out the Fugitive Slave Act of 1793. He said that it was a federal law, and the federal government ultimately had to enforce it.


So, yes the decision as to whether or not to enforce federal law is a states rights issue.
"You can't arrest local officials for not enforcing federal law"

Aiding and abetting IS against the law.

No ONE is asking them to "enforce" anything.

Breaking ANY FEDERAL law is subject to be arrested.

Marsha is sooo... gung-ho about cleaning out so-called sanctuary cities and is a die-hard Republican. Why isn't she supporting the idea of letting the states manage their own cities, like she supports states' deciding how to spend their Medicaid money? If Tennessee has a problem, let them solve it themselves with their own money. Marsha, Marsha, Marsha, shut up!
