    Just to clarify...is this saying that the FBI couldn't arrest people for federal crimes without the consent of the sheriff? If so, then I oppose this. Federal crimes are none of the sheriff's business. I suspect that it would quickly devolve into sheriffs blocking the feds from enforcing any federal law that the sheriff didn't agree with...and there's no way that that passes constitutional muster.

    Federal laws are still laws, and they must be enforced.

    Supremacy clause. Federal crime, federal jurisduction.

    If you want to go back to a State rights v. Fed Rights...read up on the Civil War--the Fed's win.
