You are in the country illegally and break the law. ICE and Border Patrol come to collect you. But cry-baby liberals with Twisted Panty syndrome get the Sads. They pass State Laws prohibiting that. AG Barr Looks at them and says, good luck with that.
Washington State and Oregon are pretending they have jurisdiction. They’ve even got State Supreme Court justices playing along. But there’s a problem. And it’s a big one – summed up like this.
ICE and CBP officers are not subject to state rules that purport to restrict ICE and CBP from making administrative arrests on property that is otherwise open to the public and other law enforcement officers. Under the Supremacy Clause of the United States Constitution, such rules cannot and will not govern the conduct of federal officers acting pursuant to duly enacted laws passed by Congress when those laws provide the authority to make administrative arrests of removable aliens inside the United States,”
Your representatives passed the laws that give ICE and CPB authority in your state based on the Federal Government’s Constitutional jurisdiction over immigration policy and enforcement.
If the past is any indication, should these states persist, ICE and CPB will ramp up enforcement in those states, in target-rich environments, to find and collect criminals that these jurisdictions would set loose, not because they are innocent, but because they are here illegally.
Criminal Illegal Aliens get special privileges in these states judicial systems (get out of jail free cards) because letting illegals live free in America is more important to these Leftists than prosecuting them for other crimes.
And, by the way, Illegal entry is a crime. So is hiding criminals or obstructing their arrest. Maybe it’s time for ICE and CPB to arrest and prosecute (more of) those criminals too.
