Yet another weird SF fan

I'm a mathematician, a libertarian, and a science-fiction fan. Common sense? What's that?

Two Suggestions for States-Rights Conservatives

  1. It's common for states-rights conservatives to claim that state governments can enforce immigration laws that the Federal government does not see fit to enforce that strictly. Could the opposite also apply? Could New York state, for example, grant green cards (that only apply in New York) on its own? The Federal government has sole power over naturalization, but need that include sole power over residency?
  2. It's also common for states-rights conservatives to claim that any attempt by the Federal government to regulate abortion is usurping state prerogatives. On the other hand, since the Federal government has sole power over naturalization, it has the power to naturalize all fetuses. Once that happens, state governments will be forbidden to discriminate against fetuses.

Cities have been doing so for years. They declare themselves "sanctuary cities" and refuse to enforce immigration laws. So local governments are ALREADY doing their own immigration policy in defiance of federal law. Why, then, can't states actually enforce laws in place when the Feds are failing to do so?
