It's not an effort to enforce federal law.
It is an effort to let you know about violations of federal law whether or not to enforce them is still entirely up to you it seems to me.
That the federal government just doesn't want to know who is here.
Illegally or not I think justice that justice roberts' comments were or particularly telling him as saying.
That what you know what you're -- would do it does not get in the way of the federal law as they have proposed it's sort of in our hands them a piece of the puzzle right.
