Robin,

President Trump's threat to cut off federal funding to "sanctuary cities" is having an impact. First, Miami dropped its sanctuary city status, and now, the Phoenix City Council has voted 7-2 to reject an effort to make Phoenix a sanctuary city. Even the Democratic mayor, who opposes Trump's immigration policies, rejected the measure because of the potential financial fallout, voter opposition and the fact that it would violate part of Arizona's state law on immigration that bars any jurisdiction from harboring illegal aliens. The mayor said he'd look into a legal challenge to the law, but that's unlikely to succeed since the SCOTUS already upheld it.

That brings up a point that makes this story particularly interesting, due to Arizona's history with challenging the President on immigration law. When Obama refused to enforce federal immigration laws, causing severe problems for Arizona, the state attempted to step in and do it. But the SCOTUS overturned most of the Arizona immigration law, ruling that when state and federal laws conflict, federal law prevails. And Obama decided how to enforce federal immigration laws, even if his decision was to refuse to enforce them. Yet just five years later, a federal judge in Washington State seems to think that states have the power to overrule President Trump on immigration policy.

I'm still trying to think of some explanation for that ruling that doesn't involve Washington State having legalized marijuana.

Sincerely,

Mike Huckabee

And in case you missed these:  

The End of the World

By Mike Huckabee

The Department of Homeland Security just released two memos detailing how they plan to cite existing laws to implement President Trump's executive orders on immigration. You can tell things have really changed in Washington. First, with Trump's immigration orders. Then, with an executive agency citing existing laws rather than ignoring them. And finally, the DHS memos announce the creation of the Victims of Immigration Crime Engagement (VOICE) office within ICE, which will "reallocate resources that are currently used to advocate on behalf of" unauthorized immigrants. So ICE will spend tax money on helping victims of criminal illegal immigrants rather than illegal immigrants.

Liberals are right: it's the end of the world as we know it.

Chocolate Giant Melts In California

By Mike Huckabee

The chocolate giant Nestle is melting under the liberal policies of California and leaving Glendale for the sweeter environs of Rosslyn, Virginia. That will mark another 1200 jobs lost to Californians because of the state's high tax, high regulation "progressive" leadership.

It's become an all-too-typical story, but there is something remarkable about this version of it. If any company would feel comfortable under California's liberal government, you'd think it would be Nestle. In fact, they're so "progressive" that their CEO inspired Jonah Goldberg's landmark book, "Liberal Fascism." Goldberg told National Review that he went to Switzerland to hear a talk by Nestle's CEO. He said, "It became very clear to me that he had little to no interest in free markets or capitalism properly understood. He saw his corporation as a 'partner' with governments, NGOs, the U.N., and other massive multinationals. The profit motive was good for efficiency and rewarding talent, but beyond that, he wanted order and predictability and as much planning as he could get. I think that mindset informs the entire class of transnational progressives, the shock troops of what H. G. Wells hoped would lead to his liberal-fascist 'world brain.'"

Obviously, Nestle couldn't find any brains running California, so they're hitting the road. It's a perfect illustration of how far off the leftwing deep end California's government has become when even the company that inspired "Liberal Fascism" thinks the place has become too darn liberal.
