Arizona GOP Measure Would Allow Citizens To Ignore Federal Laws

Arizona isn’t the only state attempting to nullify federal authority in violation of the Supremacy Clause in the U.S. Constitution. Texas, Indiana, Wyoming, Kentucky, Arkansas, Alaska and several other red states have also been considering similar measures. Such measures are costly to taxpayers because states are forced to defend them in courts which always strike them down as unconstitutional. The only constitutionally sound way to challenge a federal law is through the judicial system, with the final say coming from the Supreme Court. These Republican attempts to nullify federal authority are no more than attempts to revive the issue of state’s rights, an issue that has been settled since the end of the Civil War in 1865. Federal law trumps state law. Republicans need to get over it.
