Let’s all ‘not enforce’
In responding to criticism about not prosecuting sanctuary cities while going after Arizona, Attorney General Eric Holder’s office explained that sanctuary cities get a pass because it’s OK if a state or city decides “not to use their resources to enforce a federal law.”
Arizona gets roughed up because its new law “actively interferes with federal law.” I wonder if the DOJ would be OK if Texas decided not to use its resources to enforce federal gun laws? Mortars for everyone!
How about if Texas decided not to enforce election laws? Maybe Rick Perry can skip collecting those federal cigarette, alcohol and gasoline taxes and just keep them for our Legislature to use? Best of all, perhaps Texans can take a powder on enforcing collection of federal income taxes.
But I bet Holder might not be so happy. Liar, hypocrite, idealogue or all of the above? You decide.
