Let those states that wish to leave secede from the United States
It will take more than a petition for a state to secede from the union. At some point, the state will have to convince people and business that they no longer have to pay federal taxes. And the state will have to defend them against the IRS. They would also have to immediately start their own immigration check points and keep the feds out of the state. The legal battle wouls go on and on.
If people and business (on a majority scale) stopped sending taxes to the fed, the fed would stop sending money to the state. This would essentially seal the deal for secession.
The process has a long way to go before we get there. If it gains momentum and starts to get serious, you can call me an immigrant.
