How State Rights Can Override Federal Immigration Law.
Now is our chance to change the political field of battle; the recent revelations regarding the IRS’s political targeting and the NSA’s domestic spying have engendered a healthy distrust of the now feral Federal Government. – We have the opportunity not only to stop this thing dead in its tracks, but make support for it legally actionable at the federal and State level.
The governors of the Several States have a lot of unused power, commonly set forth in their respective state’s constitution is the power to declare a state of invasion. If two or more States were to declare such a state (with illegal immigrants being the invading force) then support for an amnesty (or even relaxed/unenforced immigration) is giving legal aid and comfort to the enemies of the Several States.
This is important because the Constitution clearly defines Treason as follows: “Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying War against them, or in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort” — and Treason is one of the things that the privilege from arrest given congressmen in Art I, Sec 6 does not cover.
Indeed, after declaring such a state of invasion the Constitution requires the federal government to provide help to the states in Art 4, Sec 4, and to withhold help would be treason. Furthermore, a Supreme Court ruling stating the actions of the Governors actions as legitimate would be, again, treason.
Now is the time to make the Federal Government choke on its own actions. Let us force them into a political no-win scenario while they think they have us between a wall and a sword.
