The cliché of the US Republican being the party of states' rights has been tired for some time: Republicans have worked to hamper the ability of states trying to stem the flow of guns crossing their borders; they have floated the idea of preventing states from passing stricter-than-federal rules against polluters; and more recently, they have threatened to suspend funds to cities combative of border actions that see federal agents snatching up migrant children outside schools.
