Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen confirmed Tuesday that her department has asked federal prosecutors to see if they can lodge criminal charges against sanctuary cities that refuse to cooperate with federal deportation efforts.
“The Department of Justice is reviewing what avenues may be available,” Ms. Nielsen told the Senate Judiciary Committee.

If the States are “supreme” — thinking about the Tenth Amendment, then how can the Federal Gooferment prosecute the mayors of sanctuary cities?
I don’t think that “State’s Rights” will permit that. “The refusal to cooperate with officers of the Union” was the remedy prescribed by James Madison.
If the State’s governor supports the mayor, then “civil disobedience” will NULLIFY Unconstitutional Federal diktats.
