God Rest Ye, Merry Gentlemen - Jars of Clay - listen now

This is a damn good idea. If the Federal government is impotent to act, then let the states do something about it. Tenth Amendment and all that, you know. [ hat tip: Tammy Bruce ]

A proposed ballot measure in California would establish a new California border police to enforce federal immigration law.

The initiative's author, state Sen. Ray Haynes, a Republican, hopes the initiative will gain enough signatures to qualify for the ballot next year.

An anti-illegal immigration group, Rescue California, is helping to promote the measure, which is titled
"California Border Police Act."

Promoters say a federal law passed in 1996 authorizes states to enforce federal immigration law. The little-known law allows local officers to be trained to enforce immigration law under agreements negotiated with Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

Included in the enforcement would be action against employers who hire illegal aliens.
