California is so in Republicans' heads. And since Republicans have walnuts for brains, there's a lot of room for California to be in there.

Do you care about the rule of law or the constitution or just making silly metaphors?

The US Federal Government has been in charge of immigration and protection of borders since the birth of the nation. California by allowing illegals sanctuary is not only endangering their own citizens but the citizens of neighboring states as well. This is a Federal issue.

Nothing will happen to change California's liberal attitude.......ditto for all the left-coast states.

This is what happens to a country that has a federated-system of governance. Some countries with federated-systems would impose a real and harsh crackdown......not the USA.

I would allow states rights to usurp federal laws in most cases, personally. That's just me as a Trump voting social libertarian leaning moderate. If they want to create these laws, more power to them. The feds can of course decide (or not) to do things like withdraw funding as a result. Those are the choices in life we make.

Other people have made arguments in this thread that might make me question this position though. California shouldn't be able to single handedly violate US border policy just because they share a border with Mexico, unless they also make sure these individuals don't leak out from CA into surrounding states. They should be required to border patrol every major exit to and from their state unless neighboring states come to "reciprocity" agreements. This assumes neighboring states bother to object...
