Since for some reason Donald Trump’s administration couldn’t get a federal court to agree that providing illegal aliens safe harbor inside the country is patently illegal, officials finally had to take the matter before the U.S. Supreme Court.
It should have been open-and-shut: If cities and states who provide a haven for illegal continue to do so, they aiding and abetting violations of federal law.
Well, that’s all water under the bridge now, because the Biden regime just killed the case.
The Supreme Court has dismissed three pending requests to hear challenges to the Trump administration's order to withhold millions of dollars in law enforcement funds from so-called sanctuary jurisdictions—states and cities that refuse to cooperate with Department of Homeland Security efforts to deport people residing in the United States illegally.
'After a request from the Biden administration yesterday, the Supreme Court just dismissed three pending cert petitions (requests to hear a case) about the Trump administration's effort to withhold money from so-called sanctuary cities,' the SCOTUSblog Twitter account noted.
In 2017, President Donald Trump signed an executive order that called on U.S. agencies to withhold federal funds from sanctuary jurisdictions, many of which are governed by Democrats. Part of Trump's crackdown on illegal immigration, the order made federal money to state and local governments conditional upon their giving U.S. immigration officials access to their jails and advance notice when illegal immigrants were being released from custody. Lower courts were divided on whether the policy was lawful.
After taking office, Biden rescinded Trump's 2017 executive order, in another course reversal by the new administration on various Trump policies that had been challenged in court and were heading to the Supreme Court for consideration.
Given Biden's decision to revoke Trump's sanctuary city order, which effectively moots the associated policies, the Department of Justice (DOJ) filed letters with the Supreme Court in all three related cases, seeking their dismissal and noting an agreement had been made with the parties that were challenging Trump's action.
Slowly but steadily, the Democratic Party is destroying the rule of law in our country.
But here’s the thing: Red states can learn from blue ones.
If it’s okay for Democrats during a GOP administration to ignore laws and protect criminals, then it’s okay for red states during Democratic regimes to do the same.
Red states should begin declaring wholesale which federal laws they won’t agree to or allow Biden’s regime to enforce.
If there is to be no secession, then let there be mass nullification. It’s the only way for two irreconcilable factions to live together somewhat without killing each other.
