Week 2 Discussion
DQ1 Immigration and “Sanctuary Cities”
regarding the topic of federalism, and the issue of immigration, assess the recent Department of Justice lawsuit against the state of California and its limitation on assisting immigration agents in their duty of enforcement (e.g., arrest, detainment, and deportation). Do these “sanctuary cities” in states trump (pardon the pun) the federal government’s ability and power to enforce law. In this power play of federal vs state, in your opinion, who is right?
DQ2  Abortion Abatement?
Review the issue below. With which side do you agree?
In a recent, and relevant, example of a federalism issue, the Supreme Court impeded a California law “requiring anti-abortion pregnancy centers to inform women about publicly funded abortion and contraception services.”
“The 5-4 ruling by Justice Clarence Thomas, with the court’s conservatives in the majority, said the law ‘likely’ violates the First Amendment as a form of compelled speech.
‘Licensed clinics must provide a government-drafted script about the availability of state-sponsored services, as well as contact information for how to obtain them,’ Thomas said. ‘One of those services is abortion — the very practice that petitioners are devoted to opposing.’”
“In a concurring opinion, Justice Anthony Kennedy said the law is ‘a paradigmatic example of the serious threat presented when government seeks to impose its own message in the place of individual speech, thought and expression.’”
“Justice Stephen Breyer read a synopsis of the four liberal justices’ dissent from the bench. ‘If a state can lawfully require a doctor to tell a woman seeking an abortion about adoption services … why should it not be able to require a medical counselor to tell a woman seeking prenatal care about childbirth and abortion services?’ he said.”
