In a Trump-defying move, California's Senate passes sanctuary state bill

John C. Calhoun, please call your office! California wants to nullify a federal law - actually, several of them:

In defiance of President Donald Trump's immigration policies, the California Senate passed a bill to limit state and local police cooperation with federal immigration authorities.

Senate Bill 54, which unofficially has been called a "sanctuary state" bill, bars state and local law enforcement agencies from using their resources, including money, facility, property, equipment or personnel, to help with immigration enforcement. They would be prohibited from asking about immigration status, giving federal immigration authorities access to interview a person in custody or assisting them in immigration enforcement.
Time to grab a beer and some popcorn, 'cause the show's about to begin!

Now that Federal Laws mean nothing?

1. Let us abandon the 1964 Civil Rights Court Decree.

2. Affirmative Action shall no longer be observed.

3. How about those pesky EPA laws?

4. And who could forget those stupid OSHA laws.

5 Busing and quotas are definately out.

6. By all means "Seperate But Equal" segregation shall be the new rage.

7. All forms of discrimination shall be recognized at the States choosing.

8. Each State shall determine how they feel about LGBT issues.

9. Minimum Wage federal law is toast, determined only by each State.

0. Last but not least, SLAVERY shall be determined on a State by State basis.

Ooooooooooooooweeeeeeeee!.........Let the good times roll!

Think something through? A liberal? I'm still laughing! In all seriousness though, it does sting some that C A L I F O R N I A is now leading the way on State's rights!
At this point, it's a toss up as to what will happen first, whether we'll finally gain some sanity and quit trying to hold this quaking house of cards together, or die in a nuclear wasteland after our newest emperor gets us in a shooting war with Russia. Can you believe that we're back to the old game of pulling the bear's tail? And over a distant land and people that we have absolutely no call to spill our kin's blood for.... Insanity!
