Letter: How can cities ignore federal immigration law?

How can cities ignore federal immigration law?

A July 5 letter to this column stated emphatically that states must obey federal law concerning gay marriage. I wonder, does the writer feel the same way about federal immigration law?

Recently, Juan Francisco Lopez-Sanchez, in this country illegally for the sixth time, shot and killed San Francisco resident Kathryn Steinle after not being turned over to immigration enforcement because San Francisco is a sanctuary city.

Of course, you won’t hear it from President Obama or Al Sharpton, because it does not fit the liberal narrative, but I’d like to hear all the liberals arguing against nullification start with sanctuary cities ignoring immigration law.
