    So this is an easy one, any tax money the state of California collects and forwards to the feds should be held by Cali. While I don't agree with sanctuary cities I would love for the states to relying

    Assuming things operate in Cali as they do here; it is my understanding GA collects all fuel taxes paid at the pump then forwards the Fed's their share.

    Sounds like a great way to have Cali's federal hwy funds cut.

    Such acts would definitely qualify under the Insurrection Act as amended by the 2007 Defense Authorization Bill. Whether or not Trump chooses to invoke such powers and send in the troops remains to be seen. I suspect the elections in November will have a major impact on that decision.

    Glenn Reynolds (Instapundit) has some interesting theories on what would happen if California is found to be in a state of insurrection, with one scenario creating "New California" exactly the same way as West Virginia was created.
