Apr 26, 2019 According to Article II, section 2 of the constitution of the United States, the President has the power to make treaties with a foreign government (or governments), so long as 2/3 of the Senators agree. That is the only means by which we can enter into a treaty with a foreign government. States and cities, however, have begun to enter into "non-binding agreements" to get around treaties that are so radical that the Federal government refuses to ratify them.

Mayors in cities across America have vowed to implement failed international policies, like the Paris Accords, without any respect for the leadership of the Federal Government. It might be one thing if they were standing up to a government that was signing away a slice of their sovereignty, but these cities are fighting to give other countries a say in how we run our country. This is a blatant attempt to undermine a Federal Government that is looking to protect our country against the pressures put on it by foreign powers that do not have our best interests at heart. We so often complain about how the government acts outside outside of its enumerated powers, now certain cities are infringing on those few enumerated powers the federal government does actually have. How do we put a stop to this dangerous philosophy?
