In hearing news about so-called "sanctuary jurisdictions," it occurred to me that the states-rights that protected CA cannabis users might provide the same basis to protect an immigrant.
For the sake of discussion, let's reference the situation where someone is in the US without visa / allowed status, and they have committed assault.
Does CA have the same basis to protect such a person, as was done to protect cannabis dispensaries, and users?
Neutral politiking: please don't lambaste the matter of immigration in the comments. This is not a politically-devise question. Feel free to leave answers that reframe the issues involved.
