Amendment 10 states, “The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.” If there is a direct conflict between a Federal law and a State law, the “Supremacy Clause”, cited in Article Six, Clause 2 of the U.S. Constitution states the Federal Law will prevail. However, this only applies if Congress is acting in pursuance of its Constitutionally authorized power. If there is any ambiguity in the Federal government acting in a manner which appears to be not clearly within their Constitutionally defined powers, then the matter must be resolved in Federal Court. It is most regrettable that far too often the Federal Government and its agencies, have unilaterally extended their authority beyond their Constitutional powers. As a case in point, the United States Citizen and Immigration Service (USCIS) has repeated ignored State Court orders with the stated reason, they did so “for immigration purposes”. Yet there is no Federal Court ruling to substantiate their self-proclaimed powers over State Court orders. I have taken this matter to the U.S. Supreme Court but they did not accept the case. Please note that they only accept 3 % of the cases submitted. If you wish to learn more of my submission, a Writ of Certiorari, please click here.
Our success and stability as a nation is derived from our U.S. Constitution. It is a precious and powerful foundation to guide our country in the face of many challenges to alter it. I firmly believe we must defend and preserve it or the greatness of our nation will morph into something less and we will weaken the principles which have made us a great nation.
