Where states are required/requested by the federal government to enforce federal laws, they can "nullify" of a sort by inaction or by refusing to cooperate. That's fine. The feds can't force the states to enforce federal laws, though they can try to strong arm them through withholding of federal dollars, but that doesn't prevent the fed from independently enforcing its laws.

However, this is not a thread about our federal govt or the supremacy clause. It's about an international body thinking they can stick their noses in our internal affairs. And how too many treaties could result in more erosion.
Wherever the UN "sticks its nose", it's in the internal affairs of some country or another, right? Why should we be exempt? Of course, we can ignore them just as many other countries do.
