It's not about following federal law it's about local communities having to enforce federal laws.
They aren't enforcing federal law, they are being asked to comply with Federal law, et al should know the difference.
Which they do in all sorts of situations, from FBI most wanted list, water regulations, air regulations, the list goes on and on, walk in to any fire station, there are a many Federal laws they are asked to comply with, and do.
The question is why not this law, why can the city pick and choose which Federal laws it wishes to comply with?
JeffJ, erstwhile proponent of small government, here wonders why the states shouldn't be compelled do the Federal government's bidding at their own expense.
It not doing its bidding, you don't seem to understand the Federal Law it is about compliance not enforcement. Regarding the small government comment, sure I am for smaller government but there are federal (national) laws that should be enforced, illegal immigration is one of them, being part of a bigger Union has its benefits, without border enforcement whats the point.
Not clear why Republicans can't play that game too...

Whats not clear about it? I suppose to a literalist such as yourself, ideas and concepts are hard to grasp.
Republicans see, actually care about citizens and unskilled labor, and minorities. Unlike, as nulli says Democrats are interested in power and votes can get you power. The whole idea of "everything is political" is nothing more than a power grab by Democrats, but I get ahead of your studies. Let me know when you get to basic
Keep working on it.... you'll get there someday Snoofy you seem pretty bright, I know getting a proper education is difficult these days.
