You’re right - states shouldn’t have any rights. States have powers.
If you think States have powers then the illusion is complete. However, we may be entering a time to re-determine the “power” of States. For this to happen it will take people of strong moral fiber and tenacity and governors who will draw the line, with their new conservative legislatures. If challenged further, like with federal force (extra judicial, judicial and military)— it remains to be seen how this would be sustained.
One thing is certain. If something is not done to both preserve US sovereignty and strengthen the individual States- we will soon have a country unrecognizable from the Founder’s vision. Deo Vindice.
