Have you seen how strongly Republicans are supporting States rights with regard to sanctuary cities?
I posted elsewhere a few weeks ago that people should be consistent on their position about States rights, but I’ve moderated my position. Think of the power hierarchy as:
UN > Country > State > County > City > Borough > Family > Person.
It doesn’t matter which level you choose to have the controlling say; if it takes an unethical position, it has no moral justification for it. In other words, we must judge policies not by who issues them, but by whether they are ethical. (I don’t need to get into how that is judged here!)
