Judge Bolton grants a temporary injunction of the toughest parts of the law while it is further adjudicated, but allowed other parts of the law- to stand.
Among those provisions left standing is a prohibition on the creation of "sanctuary cities," the subject of my posting today in the Chicago Daily Observer.
I haven't read the opinion (linked below) yet, but the immediate thought that came to mind was to wonder about her argue based on federal preemption of state laws. (Article 6 of the U.S. Constitution.) Kidnapping and bank robbery are federal crimes; does that mean any state laws criminalizing kidnapping and bank robbery are, hence, preempted? Could state laws that "create too much of a burden" on federal authorities also be ruled unconstitutional?
I'll be back with more thoughts (if I have any) created by reading the decision.
A quick analysis of the judge's decisions is here.
The complete 36-page decision is here.
