The left has been passing laws for years that fly in the face of Federal law: marijuana laws and sanctuaries for illegal immigrants. Now that there are local sheriffs that are refusing to enforce gun control laws, all of a sudden sanctuary laws aren’t legal.
Rep. Daymon Ely, D-Bernalillo and Sandoval Counties says counties and sheriffs can’t just decide to ignore a state law.
“It’s a very dangerous thing to start talking about we’re only going to enforce certain laws that we like and others that we don’t. Our system does not work that way,” Ely said.
What is the funniest about this, is that Daymon Ely sponsored Senate Bill 196, which is sanctuary state legislation, which if adopted into law, state and local law enforcement officers would not be able to apprehend illegals in the state solely because they are suspected of breaking federal immigration law.
