Sports betting decision could effect sanctuary states and cities
The Supreme Court's decision striking down a federal law over sports betting could signal trouble in the legal fight against sanctuary states and cities.
Justices said the federal anti-gambling law is unconstitutional because "it unequivocally dictates what a state legislature may and may not do."
A sign of the constitution's limit on the federal government's power to force the states go along with Washington's wishes.
Several legal commentators say there is a direct link between the court's decision in the sports betting case and the administration's effort to punish local governments that resist President Trump's immigration enforcement policies.
