Hollow Crusades

All this "sanctuary" city/county/state stuff looks hollow to me. Cities and states that offer sanctuary from federal law enforcement to non-citizens are merely grandstanding.
Instead of grandstanding, state and local officials should use their "bully pulpits" to persuade citizens to communicate directly and persistently with their U.S. Senators and Members of Congress, urging them to reconsider and reform federal immigration laws. Congress can actually fix the immigration system; local sanctuary regimes can't.
The immigration system needs fixing. One jurisdiction insulting another is not a fix.
