The Tenth Amendment

STATES THAT powers not delegated to the United States are reserved to the States.

The Regime claims that Arizona’s anti-invasion-enforcement-of-federal-law act usurps Federal police powers.

I want to know just exactly where in the Constitution police powers are delegated to the United States.

IOW, how can the States usurp a power the Union does not have?

I seem to recall that, on the foundation of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, there was great concern that Congress was creating a national police force, and would by precedent and the creeping extension of powers, usurp powers (sovereign police powers) properly reserved to the states. And the States and People were assured, “Trust us: the FBI will ONLY investigate and assist local law enforcement.”

Wonder what the over/under was on that bet.
