"Claiming that the federal government possesses an immigration power through an inherent attribute of sovereignty is a stake in the heart of the enumerated powers and the Tenth Amendment. This isn't even reading an acknowledged power broadly, like the Commerce Power. It is just making up a new power where there is no textual indication." (10/19/16)
