As California goes, so goes the country?
Santa Fe progressives take notice. The Department of Justice has indicated that the current lawsuit filed against California is just the first of other suits that may be filed against states and cities that obstruct immigration enforcement. That could also involve sanctuary cities in New Mexico.
The suit has brought several interesting comments from progressive politicians in California. Among them is a comment from junior U.S. Senator Kamala Harris, who succeeded Barbara Boxer. In a recent MSNBC interview, she said, “California’s going to fight because the state represents the future.”
The nationwide RESIST movement is opposing U.S. immigration law, which is clearly defined in our Constitution as belonging to federal jurisdiction. The sanctuary declarations passed by cities and states are an attempt to supersede or nullify federal law, and are rightly seen as unconstitutional.
