State Governors DO NOT have authority over Federal Immigration Laws

40 governors, including at least 18 Republicans, consent to resettle MORE refugees; Mayors COMPLICIT!

It’s true:

Here’s an idea: STOP electing DOMESTIC ENEMIES OF THE STATE.

Seriously, people, you DO have the power and the authority to HALT this decline. Just VOTE. In fact, if everyone who reveres the Constitution had voted in 2008, Obama never would have been elected.

Some KEY POINTS for your consideration:

Governors DO NOT HAVE THE AUTHORITY to override Federal Immigration Law. What they are doing is patently and Constitutionally ILLEGAL. Immigration and Naturalization power is specifically and expressly delegated to the United States Federal Government by the United States Constitution:

“The CONGRESS shall have Power To … establish an uniform Rule of Naturalization…” – Article I Section 8

“The Migration or Importation of such Persons as any of the States now existing shall think proper to admit, shall not be prohibited by the Congress prior to the Year one thousand eight hundred and eight (1808).” – Article I Section 9, and it implies Congress has the power to regulate or even prohibit it after 1808.

“All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside. No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States…” – Amendment XIV, Section 1

The power to control immigration is NOT reserved to the States. It is specifically and expressly delegated to United States.

“The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.” – Amendment X

State Governors, state Legislators, and state judges are BOUND BY LAW to follow the Constitution:

“This Constitution, and the Laws of the United States which shall be made in Pursuance thereof; and all Treaties made, or which shall be made, under the Authority of the United States, shall be the supreme Law of the Land; and the Judges in every State shall be bound thereby, any Thing in the Constitution or Laws of any State to the Contrary notwithstanding. The Senators and Representatives before mentioned, and the Members of the several State Legislatures, and all executive and judicial Officers, both of the United States and of the several States, shall be bound by Oath or Affirmation, to support this Constitution; but no religious Test shall ever be required as a Qualification to any Office or public Trust under the United States.” – Article VI

When State governments VIOLATE the Constitution, they are VIOLATING YOUR Constitutional rights and freedoms.


Furthermore, the phrase, “all executive and judicial Officers, both of the United States and of the several States” includes MAYORS, as well.

The only reason these anti-Constitutional and anti-American ENEMIES got to be governor is because YOU elected them. Please stop doing that! Please stop electing domestic enemies!

Don’t be ignorant. Certainly, throw off that apathy!

Instead, CALL THEM ON IT. File grievances with the U.S. Attorney General, SHOWING them how your rights are being violated by your governor and state legislators. Get a bunch of people to sign it. Get it out there on the White House Website for people to vote on it.
