    OK, if that's the argument you're reduced to. So be it. You're tilting at windmills here. The State is not interfering with Fed activities, they are merely monitoring it and nothing more. It is not a challenge, it is not an affront, it is not defiance towards the President's rightful powers.

    Sure does. And that's just the type of thing that I am talking about. As a result, like I said, what the Texas governor did could be interpreted as sending such a message to the citizens of Texas. Therefore it could be seen as a violation of the constitution.

    When the Administration calls for martial law, will see how it goes. Chances are there will be one Hell of a war before we discuss the legalities.

    Do you people even understand that legally it is irrelevant? Federal legal authority always usurps State legality. This is a non-issue. The State governor is doing it to appeal to mental simpletons that don't know the Law.

    Re: Does a state governor have the Constitutional right to monitor Federal troops?

    Does a state governor have the authority to order state agents onto federal lands that just to be located inside his state? It depends. If the feds bar access the state agents can't legally enter.

    Can those state agents monitor what's going on from the vantage point of state lands? Unquestionably yes.

    Can those state agents follow federal agents around while they happen to be on state lands? Unquestionably yes.

    Is the federal government going to impose martial law on Texas? I'd like to know what the people who think that are smoking cause it must be some powerful stuff.

    No you are not everywhere. Only the Supreme Lord of all things is omnipresent. Indeed everywhere are his eyes, his hands, his ears, his mouths, his legs, and his faces.
