Drumming up this anti-immigrant sentiment is both ugly and harmful to America's moral fiber and stability. If congress wants to combat crime it can start by addressing poverty and ending the war on drugs. Regardless of the fact that this bill is retrogressive and bad policy, it is also unconstitutional. The federal government is prohibited from deputizing local law enforcement to enforce federal law or effectively coercing local governments to do so. As long as Justices Kennedy and Ginsberg don't retire this next term, this law is destined to be overturned (only after it's done significant harm to our reputation and economy). There are more effective methods of enforcing the border without the human cost. Reject this bill!
