In reply to comment: But it is up to the Federal (see in situ)

In protecting against enemy's under a Declaration of War - ONLY.

In protecting against armed invasion by enemy's under a Declaration of War ONLY.

The federal government can set "a standard" for immigration, The states must "CHOOSE" to implement it; the federal government has no constitutional authority to enforce it, because the federal government can prosecute only "4" crimes;

Immigration isn't one of them.

Thomas Jefferson - Virginia Resolutions 1798:
In Full:

"....2. " Resolved, That the Constitution of the United States, having delegated to Congress a power to punish:

a.) treason,
b.) counterfeiting the securities and current coin of the United States,
c.) piracies, and felonies committed on the high seas, and
d.) offenses against the law of nations,


and it being true as a general principle, and one of the amendments to the Constitution having also declared, that "the powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, not prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people,"

therefore the act of Congress, passed on the 14th day of July, 1798, and intituled "An Act in addition to the act intituled An Act for the punishment of certain crimes against the United States," as also the act passed by them on the — day of June, 1798, intituled "An Act to punish frauds committed on the bank of the United States," (>>>> and ALL their OTHER ACTS which assume to CREATE, DEFINE, or PUNISH crimes, OTHER than THOSE so "ENUMERATED" in the Constitution,) >>> are "ALTOGETHER" "VOID", and of "NO FORCE";

and that the power to create, define, and punish such other crimes is reserved, and, of right, appertains SOLELY and EXCLUSIVELY to the respective "STATES", each within its own territory..."

Also see these limitations: Virginia Resolutions 6-16-1788:
In Full:

George Nicholas:

"Treason against the United States is defined in the Constitution, and the forfeiture limited to the life of the person attainted.

Congress have power to define and punish:

a.) piracies and felonies committed on the "high seas"(ONLY), and
b.) offenses against the laws of nations;

but they

(APP: the federal government, legislature or supreme court)


I do not see "cheating immigration" laws as one of these crimes. It therefor is a "STATE" ISSUE "EXCLUSIVELY";
