Dealing with a recalcitrant administration through the normal means -- writing letters, going to court, trying to pass their own laws that run counter to federal statutes -- is a path to nowhere. You can't deal with a federal regime that blatantly ignores court orders and existing statutes like Biden has done in the normal manner. Biden's Department of Homeland Security, for example, is violating a Supreme Court order instructing the agency and the president to restart Donald Trump's "remain in Mexico" program because the manner in which Biden tried to get rid of it was illegal -- and nothing has been done so far to restart the program.
Illegal aliens continue to flood our country and Biden's DHS is letting most of them go inside our country (so the regime can 'legalize' them later via the $3.5 trillion budget reconciliation bill and make them permanent Democrat voters).
So governors will have to think of other ways, other non-traditional means, of protecting their citizens and the sovereignty of their own borders.
And one gubernatorial candidate appears to understand that, as reported by Big League Politics:
Texas Governor candidate Don Huffines is pledging to arrest federal agents that usurp the rights of parents who oppose the instruction of anti-white critical race theory in public schools, responding to an announcement on the part of Biden’s Justice Department that it had begun a federal probe into opposition to CRT in schools.
CRT, of course, is critical race theory, the very divisive, controversial curriculum that teaches white kids they are oppressors while teaching black kids they are victims of our "systemically racist" society -- none of which is true.
But Huffines' statement comes in response to a demand from the National School Board Association to criminalize the complaints of parents who have been increasingly showing up to local school board meetings and angrily denouncing CRT as well as creepy, filthy, sexually explicit content contained in books in some school libraries, up to and including pedophilic acts.
As reported by the American Wire:
In their letter to Biden, association president Viola M. Garcia and interim executive director and CEO Chip Slaven claimed school officials nationwide have been experiencing “threats of violence and acts of intimidation” against board members, teachers, and school staff. The letter went on to ask the Biden administration to consider whether parents’ actions should be considered “domestic terrorism.”
“While local and state law enforcement agencies are working with public school officials in several communities to prevent further disruptions to educational services and school district operations, law enforcement officials in some jurisdictions need assistance – including help with monitoring the threat levels,” they wrote.
“As these threats and acts of violence have become more prevalent … NSBA respectfully asks that a joint collaboration among federal law enforcement agencies, state and local law enforcement, and with public school officials be undertaken to focus on these threats,” the pair noted further.
They also wrote that the “acts of malice, violence, and threats” may constitute “a form of domestic terrorism.”
“The Department takes these incidents seriously and is committed to using its authority and resources to discourage these threats, identify them when they occur, and prosecute them when appropriate,” AG Garland wrote in a memo. “In the coming days, the Department will announce a series of measures designed to address the rise in criminal conduct directed toward school personnel.”
That's not going to fly in Texas if Huffines becomes governor: "I want Joe Biden and Merrick Garland to know when I am governor I will use every power at my disposal to protect parents concerned about Critical Race Theory infecting their local schools," he said in a statement. "Texas will not participate in a federally assisted slow surrender to the left. Instead, we will resist this tyranny by arresting federal agents if necessary."
This is thinking outside the box in figuring how to deal with a lawless regime.
