I can understand how that could be perceived as ironic, but I believe the meaning is that the Federal Government should stay out of the State affairs of Texas. That while addressing national security issues such as the horrific lack of security at the border.

The Obama Administration seems to be intent on selectively enforcing federal laws and when a state decides to enforce federal law that Obama & Co doesn't like the force of the federal government is brought upon said state in spite.

You call it irony, I call it authoritarian measures run amock.

Just what we need on this board, another angry, ill-informed conservative.

When Eric Holder eventually steps down as Attorney General, he will leave behind a complicated legacy, some of it tragic, like his decision not to prosecute Wall Street after the financial crisis, and his all-out war on whistleblowers like Edward Snowden.
