Against military threats, the borders are federal, sure, but when it comes to residency, that's a State issue, or at least it was until some judicial activism of the 1870's.

A loose, federal authority expanding interpretation of naturalization laws (whcih regard aquiring citizenship, not residency) was used to steal state's power to determine whom they could allow to be residents under the guise of it being "diplomacy".

I support laws like this one because they are the first step towards ending this federal usurptation of State authority.
