That the President has responded, childishly and possibly illegally by refusing to enforce an entire section of federal code is regrettable, and as the Judge notes, ultimately accountable on election day. But with all respect to his experience, I disagree, with the premise that Congress' exclusive domain over immigration prevents state enforcement. Congress has exclusive Constitutional jurisdiction over money as well, and one of the oldest Federal police agencies, The Secret Service, is designated to enforce laws against counterfeiting. Local police are free to detain counterfeiters, and it is hard to imagine any controversy over a state law that required police to detain suspected counterfeiters.
