U.S. Constitution’S Supremacy Clause Overrides State Law

Editor:

A letter in Tuesday’s edition of the Roundup — “Bill of Rights Being Stripped Away” — discusses Article Ten re the Bill of Rights of the U.S. Constitution, and how, if not noted in the Constitution, certain powers are left to the states.

Article Ten is a seemingly simple and clear-cut provision. Unfortunately, in the main body of the Constitution there is a sneaky little provision called the Supremacy Clause which clearly states that federal law overrides state law. Thus the basis for Judge Bolton’s recent rulings regarding SB 1070.
