Why should state and local government be held liable for immigration policy not passed by Congress? Resistance by sensible state and local officals should be their right to defend their communities economic and social justice interests over unfunded and misguided public policy. This legislation makes no sense in light of Trump's Executive Order (EO) prioritizing all 11.3 million undocumented immigrants for deportation. This EO a blatant example of executive overreach. The Congress has not voted on these and many other immigration policies. Furthermore, Trump's EO is an unfunded mandate, as the DHS doesn't have a big enough budget to deport all 11.3 million people and the cost of doing so would CRIPPLE our economy like the Great Recession with more than a trillion dollars lost to GDP and combined state economies. State and local officials should not be forced to detain immigrants who contribute greatly to the economy, most of which have lived here for ten to twenty years or more. We don't have to open the floodgates to all these individuals to become citizens, but we do need to stop and realize that approximately 65% of all undocumented immigrants live with other members of their family who are US citizens. Since when has the US been in the business of splitting up and displacing families?? So yes, there is both an economic and an ethical reason for state and local officials to choose not to participate in detaining undocumented immigrants for the federal government. Sensible immigration reform is the only ethically correct choice and not this garbage piece of legislation.
