That same year the Supreme Court continued chipping away at Congressional power in Seminole Tribe of Florida v. Florida , 517 . 44, 116 . 1114, 252 (. 1997), a case in which an Indian tribe filed suit against Florida to compel the state to negotiate under the federal Indian Gambling Regulatory Act. 25 . § 2710(d)(7). The act required states to negotiate in Good Faith towards the creation of a compact between the tribe and the state allowing for certain gambling activities. States could be sued in federal court for violating the act and compelled by federal courts to comply with its mandates. The Supreme Court found that, while Congress intended to abrogate the states' sovereign immunity in the statute, the "Eleventh Amendment prohibits Congress from making the states capable of being sued in federal court."
The ADL report does not go to such extreme lengths. It recognizes that radical Islam poses a danger, but unjustifiably minimizes it, seeing it only as competition for government resources and media attention it would rather see devoted to “right-wing terrorism.” The world of “Designated Survivor” isn’t like the real world, and neither is the world of the ADL report, but it’s what Hollywood and many others think the real world is like. Hopefully, neither will prevent audiences from properly triaging and combatting violence from whatever quarter.
Federalists, those who identified with federalism as part of a movement, were the main supporters of the Constitution. They were aided by a federalist sentiment that had gained traction across many factions, uniting political figures. This does not mean there was no heated debate over the Constitution's drafting, however. The most zealous anti-federalists, loosely headed by Thomas Jefferson, fought against the Constitution's ratification, particularly those amendments which gave the federal government fiscal and monetary powers.
