TI read an article in the WSJ last week about California’s attempt to counter the Trump administration’s crack down on illegal immigration.

The state shored up its requirement that employers demand to see a warrant before cooperating with federal immigration authorities. Failing to do so can bring a fine of $10,000.Forget the slippery slope of a state telling businesses to not cooperate with federal law enforcement.

The key part of the story comes at the end: “Still, many California business owners say they aren’t sure exactly what the new law means. Some small-business owners have heard of it, and those who had said they weren’t sure they’d recognize a warrant or subpoena.”See, creating regulation is easy and popular. Enforcing it takes work and is often unpopular.
