Nancy Pelosi’s number one goal is to take down President Trump.
Since his election, she has done everything in her power to do that.
But one major piece of news that just dropped crushed all of her goals, and she might just give up.
After realizing that impeaching Trump is very unlikely, Democrats began taking a new approach to defy the President.
Many left-leaning states, with California leading the charge, have chosen to defy federal immigration laws.
In response, Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced the Department of Justice (DOJ) would sue the state of California for allowing “sanctuary cities” that protect criminal illegal aliens.
Democrats are fighting back, attempting to claim that the American people are on their side.
But new polling shows the exact opposite.
A new Rasmussen Reports poll shows the majority of Americans, about 54% do not believe that states and localities should have the right to ignore federal laws they disagree with.
The poll also reveals that less than 24% of likely voters believe that states should be allowed to ignore federal laws they don’t like.
As reported by Breitbart:
“Nearly 55 percent of American likely voters say states should not be allowed to ignore federal law, as the state of California has decided to ignore federal immigration laws and protect criminal illegal aliens.
When Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced that his Department of Justice (DOJ) would be suing the state of California for its “sanctuary state” laws seeking to protect criminal illegal aliens against federal law, he ignited a firestorm debate around the issue of whether or not states should be allowed to ignore federal mandates.
The majority of Americans, about 54 percent, say states and localities should not have the right to ignore federal laws that they do not agree with, a new Rasmussen Reports poll reveals.
Meanwhile, less than 24 percent of likely voters said states should be allowed to ignore federal laws they do not like.
Roughly 70 percent of Republican voters said states like California should not be allowed to ignore federal law, while just 38 percent of Democrat voters said the same. Nearly 35 percent of Democrats said states should be allowed to ignore federal law.
Swing-voters, though, by a near 60 percent majority, say states should not be allowed to exempt themselves from federal mandates with which they do not agree.
Sessions has compared California’s ignoring of federal immigration laws to the Confederacy, telling Breitbart News, “We believe that we cannot accept the kind of restrictions that California placed on federal law officers, and we believe that their actions exceeded the Constitution, and we will win in the courts eventually.”
This is terrible news for Democrats like Nancy Pelosi.
In their anti-Trump stupor, she seems to have forgotten that a majority of Americans voted Trump into office.
Trump’s immigration policies were front and center in his campaign message and the number one attack against him from Democrats.
This polling makes it clear that Americans will not allow states like California to exempt themselves from federal immigration laws.
Do you think states like California should be allowed to harbor illegal immigrants in violation of federal law?
