The federal government's jurisdiction over immigration law has consistently been upheld by the U.S. Supreme Court, which has overruled attempts by state legislatures to single out immigrants. Additionally, the Supremacy Clause of the U.S. Constitution is generally interpreted to mean that federal laws trump state laws, except for certain matters constitutionally left to the states. - See more at: http://immigration.findlaw.com/immigration-laws-and-resources/federal-vs-state-immigration-laws.html#sthash.A4EUL5XQ.dpuf
It would be great if he could but AZ knows what happens when a oovernor tries it,
Hey, he’s just got to go ahead and do it. Obama trashes the constitution and the law every damn day. Congress and the courts either can’t or refuses to stop him. The states are going to have to act on their own to defend their borders, their sovereignty and their citizens or America is done.

These Governors should learn from their masters, stop the illegals then take the hit. Let the feds sue the state to stop their actions. As with Obama & crew, the illegal flow would have already been stemmed by the time the thing got settled in court so it would be worth it.
