They may take measures to force the Federal governments hand knowing that they may not prevail in the higher courts but their point has been made. At the end of the day..when the Federal government fails to enforce existing law they force the states to defend their own interests or suffer the consequences of the federal governments dereliction of duty.
As a political question? Sure. As a legal question? I'm not so sure... I love the analysis however.

As to the legality...I'm not sure either but laws should be enforced regardless of political ramifications. Both big box parties use illegals as pawns in their little game of obtaining or retaining power. I view this as a form of treason against the very people they claim to serve and disrespectful to future Americans who they keep in perpetual limbo.

Well there are tons of laws on the books that aren't enforced and that we don't WANT enforced. Enforcement has always been an interesting aspect of our legal system.

I think we need several audits.

Budget and laws...

Agreed..some laws may not be enforceable due to ambiguity or funding.

And laws that we don't want to enforce or cannot enforce need to be stricken.

I disagree in part...laws that protect our boarders are essential and refusing to enforce them due to political concerns is tantamount to treason. Laws that we cannot enforce due to lack of funding or they've become outdated, should be addressed and stricken if needed.

I feel the same way about education... Which one was cut in this last budget negotiation?

It looks like the powers that be do not want to enforce the rule of law.
I think there is more of an interest in winning potential new voters via amnesty.
