Feds fail to act, obstruct states in immigration battle.
Article IV Section 4 of the US Constitution:
The United States shall guarantee to every State in this Union a Republican Form of Government, and shall protect each of them against Invasion; and on Application of the Legislature, or of the Executive (when the Legislature cannot be convened) against domestic Violence.
In recent weeks we have seen the Federal Government through the Department of Justice prohibit States from implementing new immigration laws. The states obviously are fed up with the Federal Government's lack of action when it comes to protecting the states from invasion. I don't know what else you call 11 million foreigners flowing across the border.
The more you watch what the federal government does, the more you realize they are simply doing whatever they want. We have an executive branch that usurps power and sends our country to war without the consent of congress. We have a legislative branch that routinely passes laws that are clearly not among the 18 enumerated powers listed in Article 1 Section 8 of the Constitution. We have a Judicial branch that feels that they have authority to legislate from the bench and "interpret" the Constitution.
Any American with a basic grasp of the English language can and should read this 4 page document for themselves. I dare anyone to read directly from the Constitution and tell me where there is authority for the EPA, for Dept. of Education, Dept. of Energy and many other government programs. The 10th Amendment is clear. Any powers not within the 18 enumerated powers is left to the states or the people.
In this case we have a Federal government that refuses to act and protect our borders, and then obstructs the states when they try to handle things themselves. If you think changing the faces in Washington will do anything to change things, you are dead wrong. That much has been proven time and again over the past 100 years.
