The hosts of “Fox & Friends” were stunned to learn that a recent ruling by the U.S. Supreme Court on sports gambling will also help sanctuary cities.
Fox News legal analyst Andrew Napolitano said that when the Supreme Court struck down the 1992 Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act, the high court ruled that local authorities do not have to force their police to assist federal officials in enforcing federal laws, which would also include immigration.
Napolitano said this would apply to “sanctuary” cities where local authorities refuse to comply with federal requests in deporting undocumented immigrants.
The depressed Fox News hosts desperately added that the federal government could deny such states money, but Napolitano reminded them that has not happened even with a Republican-controlled White house and Congress.
