Do you remember back in 2010 when Arizona passed SB-1070?
Arizona had decided that since the Obama Administration refused to enforce immigration laws, they would do it for them.
Naturally, the Obama Justice Department sued the state of Arizona. And the case made it all the way to the Supreme Court.
The outcome was not good for Arizona.
SCOTUS ruled that when it comes to immigration laws, the Executive branch has plenary power and states have no business getting in the way.
Well, here we are in 2018 and the state of California has declared itself a Sanctuary State – effectively obstructing the Executive branch’s enforcement of immigration law.
Naturally, the Trump Justice Department is suing California over its sanctuary policy.
But thanks to Obama suing Arizona, we now know that the Executive branch has plenary power when it comes to the enforcement of immigration laws.
In other words, California is screwed.
Back in January of 2017, I pointed out that this SCOTUS ruling could come back to bite these Sanctuary-loving Democrats in the ass.
But Democrats never think these things through, do they?
California is not only refusing to cooperate with ICE; they’re actively obstructing them from enforcing immigration law.
Like the Mayor of Oakland who aided and abetted illegal aliens in their effort to avoid arrest.
Trump and Sessions think they can bully California — but it won't work. https://t.co/xf85HpSOqe

Really, Kammy? What part of “plenary power” do you not understand?
Were Obama and Holder “bullying” Arizona?
Only a Leftist would think following and enforcing the law is “bullying.”
The people of California will not be bowed by the Trump Administration's brazen aggression and intimidation tactics. We will fight this sham lawsuit and will fight all cowardly attacks on our immigrant communities. #ProtectDREAMers

A “sham” lawsuit?
When Obama sued Arizona, was that a “sham” lawsuit too?
See, this is the problem with the Democrat Party.
They are incredibly short-sighted.
As I pointed out in my post from last January:
“Seems to me, in my limited understanding, the SCOTUS ruling against SB-1070 gave the Trump Administration all the legal precedent they need to tell these jerks to go pound sand.
“Despite playing the long game when it comes to destroying America, Leftists have a tendency to be crippled by short-sighted thinking.
“Harry Reid getting rid of the filibuster in order to help Obama pack the lower courts is kind of biting the Democrats in the ass right now, isn’t it?
“This is a problem with these guys.
“And I think in their haste to prevent Arizona from being able to do something about their illegal alien problem, they’ve set themselves for a losing battle now that Trump is in the White House.”
But it isn’t just a legal quandary for the Democrats.
It’s an electoral nightmare for them as well.
Are Democrats really so profoundly stupid that they believe the American people will take their side as they disregard the law and harbor criminal illegals?
For Pete’s sake, a poll conducted by UC Berkeley in early 2017 found that 74% of California residents want Sanctuary City policies to end. Including 65% of Hispanics and 73% of Democrats.
So what does California do? It doubles-down and makes itself a Sanctuary state.
Honestly, it’s as if 2016 never happened for these people.
You would have to live in a bubble to think that that siding with criminal illegals is a winning issue.
But that’s exactly what the Democrat party is doing on a national scale.
The far-left crazies that make up the Democrat Party in California are driving the party’s national agenda.
And I think that come November, that’s going to bite them in the ass in a big, BIG way.
