And again, you are upset with the states as opposed to the federal government for not doing their Constitutionally mandated job.
It matters a lot when states create their own policies and laws conflicting with Federal law regarding immigration. Like it or not, that's what this is about.

Baloney! In the first place, the Supreme Court issues opinions, it does not rule. Kings rule, and the last time I checked, the Supreme court is a part of the Federal Government, it does not rule over it.

The States, when they ratified the Constitution, agreed to abide by it's terms. That means they must comply with it's terms. This means they are obligated to their citizens to enforce the laws of the United States and protect their citizens. Failing to do this, they are not abiding by the terms of the Constitution.

Listen to this video from a lawyer and disabled Army Vet (a former Russian linguist) who now travels the country teaching the Constitution to citizen groups and politicians (State and local politicians as well):

Yes, the right likes states rights. What the right doesn't like is states not following constitutional laws. There's the difference.

Illegal immigration is a Federal issue. You'd think people who live in places like CA would be tired of the crime and additional homeless that goes with being a Sanctuary.

Oh well, let them raise their state taxes to pay for the additional benefits they must pay.

It was okay when Obama did it. It's not okay when Donald Trump does it.

True, this illustrates that Trump represents no platform or ideology or belief system, conservative or otherwise. It's all about playing to his base and wielding power and control to feed his egomania.
