"Given the decades-long, ongoing controversy over immigration, a question must naturally be asked: Should the states of the United States be given the authority to control their respective borders? That is, should they have the same power to control their borders that the federal government has to control the nation's borders. To clarify, I'm not asking whether state borders should be abolished. I'm asking whether state governments should be empowered to control the free movements of goods and people from other states into their states." (09/02/16)

    “That is, should they have the same power to control their borders that the federal government has to control the nation’s borders.”

    IMO, the feds seized that power…not really much constitutional authority to do what they are doing.
