Re: “Immigration Dispute Leads Feds to Withhold $2 Million in Grants From Vermont Police

Divisiveness in our Great country is not the result of President Trumps election. It existed before his Presidency. It became powerful and pervasive under Obama. When he and Justice Department choose to ignore federal law and encourage local War Lords (municipal, county and state government) to flaunt our constitutions and federal laws. Had he honored his oath to uphold the constitution and the laws of the land we would not discussing the absurdity of Vermont "aiding and abetting" illegal aliens.
It has become so bad:
That after 8 years of Obama's resistance to the Constitution/Federal Law local governments feels it's their right to become Feudal States with their own laws irrespective to the US Constitution and Federal law.
When the government actually trys to enforce the Constitution/Federal laws, violators cry foul. They try sue hoping to find judges that agree with their philosophies - not the Constitution.
That many believe violating the law and our expectation of "peace and tranquility" is not only acceptable, it is good.
The primary method the Government gains compliance to Federal laws is through funding. Every Federal Grant has a codicil about adhering to federal law; Title 9, the Highway Safety Act, etc. Why not the same standards for police grants?
What will be TJs arguments before the court: they didn't tell us we're obligated to adhere to or not obstruct Federal Laws; we're a feudal kingdom not beholding to the US taxpayer providing the funds?
A county in Florida working with DOJ reduce opiate deaths by 23%. Major cities working with the DOJ have seen a decline in violent and gun crimes by 7%. That is over the steady rise in violent crimes under Obama's DOJ.
So what is it to be working with the DOJ or standing on our own and failing miserably?
