Thanks for your reply, libertarianbuddhist. I should add a bit of detail to clarify my question.

 

I'm thinking specifically of a situation where the President has issued an Executive Order that the state government believes is unconstitutional, but there is no corresponding law passed in the U.S. congress. Obama has been really bad about that.

 

So, can a state (in theory) refuse to follow the Executive Order, and thus also refuse to allow the Federal agents come enforce it in that state, based on the nullification principle?

Excuse me; by "EO" I mean "Executive Order"...

Q: do the states need for a law to be passed to use nullification, or can a state refuse an EO based on the nullification principle?
