WHERE DOES THE STATES’ AUTHORITY END AND THE FED’S BEGIN?

WHERE DOES THE STATES’ AUTHORITY END AND THE FED’S BEGIN?

by Jim Delaney, blogging at Opinerlog

snip

But, by slow erosion of the Constitution over the years, the feds have pretty much usurped nearly all authority over immigration matters. Willfully negligent or otherwise financially dependent, aka bought-off, States have, by their silence over the years, stupidly and irresponsibly consented to this–and countless other–federal encroachments.

snip

While Art 1 Sec 8 specifically grants Congress the power “to establish a uniform Rule of Naturalization, and uniform Laws on the subject of Bankruptcies throughout the United States”, nowhere in the Constitution is Congress granted authority over matters related to immigration. NOWHERE!!! (Note: by definition, “immigration” relates to the movement of people while “uniform rules of naturalization” relate solely to citizenship requirements.) Again, the Constitution’s enumerated federal powers say absolutely nothing about immigration; thus, if immigration/asylum authority is not expressly granted to the federal government, it is, therefore, expressly withheld from it. (Note: the only allusion to immigration, per se, is Art 1 Sec 9 which prohibits the “migration and importation” of slaves after 1808, a deal which the States agreed to as a condition of ratification.) Fullstop.
