President Trump declared on Monday to the International Association of Chiefs of Police in Chicago.&nbsp; Applause then erupted when he said that criminal aliens should be turned over to federal immigration authorities and sent home.</p>\n<p> SANCTUARY cities interfere with that process by ordering local law enforcement not to comply with federal laws against illegal immigration.&nbsp; Illegal aliens are protected in sanctuary cities against being asked about their lack of citizenship, and if arrested for a crime they are not handed to federal officials for deportation.<br />\n On the ballot next week in Tucson is Proposition 205, which would make this large metropolis near the Mexican border the first sanctuary city in Arizona.&nbsp; It would bar local police from checking the immigration status of people they stop or arrest.<br />\n California has many sanctuary cities, but also has a wall along its border between San Diego and Mexico.&nbsp; Arizona, which does not have a wall and is victim to a substantial percentage of the illegal immigration flowing into our country, does not yet have any sanctuary cities.<br />\n Even some progressives are opposing the ACLU-endorsed Prop. 205 to make Tucson a sanctuary city.&nbsp; The costs would be staggering, and already state lawmakers are planning to assess those expenses against the city if it approves this bad idea.<br />\n Tucson Councilwoman Regina Romero, a Democrat who is expected to be elected mayor next week, is against making it a sanctuary city by Prop. 205.&nbsp; She points out how it would interfere with Tucson police in working with federal officials on drug crimes, human trafficking, and missing children cases.<br />\n Arizona state lawmakers are threatening to withhold $130 million annually from Tucson if its voters approve this bill to harbor illegal aliens, who cost far more than that in crimes, social services, and other entitlements.&nbsp; It would make sense for Tucson to foot that bill rather than burdening the rest of the state with those increased costs from illegal immigration.<br />\n Prop. 205 conflicts with a key part of an Arizona law that the Supreme Court left in place after a legal challenge.&nbsp; Its Senate Bill 1070 continues to require local police to make a reasonable attempt to determine the immigration status of a suspect when there is reasonable suspicion about it.<br />\n Meanwhile, President Trump&rsquo;s splendid Solicitor General has filed a petition with the U.S. Supreme Court to overturn California Senate Bill 54, which requires officials there to obstruct deportations.&nbsp; The Ninth Circuit upheld the California pro-sanctuary city law despite admitting that it &ldquo;makes the jobs of federal immigration authorities more difficult,&rdquo; and even discriminates against federal officials performing their duties.<br />\n The often-reversed Ninth Circuit upheld SB 54 on the theory that California &ldquo;retains the right&rdquo; to obstruct federal law and hinder federal law enforcement.&nbsp; The Ninth Circuit invoked the Tenth Amendment, which can be helpful in other contexts, as having an &ldquo;anticommandeering&rdquo; rule against federal interference with state laws.<br />\n But this peculiar interpretation of the Tenth Amendment has already wreaked havoc beyond the issue of illegal immigration.&nbsp; Last year the Supreme Court misused this &ldquo;anticommandeering&rdquo; theory to open the door to sports gambling in all 50 states, despite the immense harm it causes.</p>\n<p> IT IS A distortion of the salutary principle of states&rsquo; power to use the Tenth Amendment to uphold state laws which flout federal law enforcement against illegal immigration.&nbsp; These state laws, and in particular California SB 54, impose expenses on other states by attracting more illegal border crossings.<br />\n &ldquo;Aliens are present and may remain in the United States only as provided for under the auspices of federal immigration law,&rdquo; Solicitor General Noel Francisco explains to the Supreme Court in his petition for cert.&nbsp; &ldquo;It therefore is the United States, not California, that &lsquo;retains the right&rsquo; to set the conditions under which aliens in this country may be detained, released, and removed.&rdquo;<br />\n Only Congress and the President can define who is here lawfully.&nbsp; The federal government, without interference by states, must be able to remove those who are here illegally.<br />\n Democrats in California, however, see many future voters for their party among the swarms of illegal immigrants flowing over our southern border.&nbsp; That state has lurched leftward as it attracts more illegal aliens with its sanctuary cities.<br />\n But as Trump&rsquo;s Solicitor General elaborates, &ldquo;When officers are unable to arrest aliens &ndash; often criminal aliens &ndash; who are in removal proceedings or have been ordered removed from the United States, those aliens ... are disproportionately likely to commit crimes.&rdquo;</p>\n<p> THE RESULT, the Trump Administration&rsquo;s top attorney observes, is that this &ldquo;undermines public safety, immigration enforcement, and the rule of law.&rdquo;&nbsp; Both voters and the Supreme Court should reject sanctuary city laws.</p>\n', created = 1576234015, expire = 1576320415, headers = '', serialized = 0 WHERE cid = '2:8782dbee880bf9b42e544042a976b2f1' in /home/conserva/public_html/includes/cache.inc on line 112.
