Sanctuary Leaders May Be Term Limited

Sanctuary Leaders May Be Term Limited
Unbeknownst to some mayors, city and county officials and governors, they may be prohibited from running for any other office because of their promotion of sanctuary cities, counties and states.  Apparently they have not read Section 3 of the 14th Amendment to the U. S. Constitution stated below:
Section 3.
No person shall be a Senator or Representative in Congress, or elector of President and Vice President, or hold any office, civil or military, under the United States, or under any state, who, having previously taken an oath, as a member of Congress, or as an officer of the United States, or as a member of any state legislature, or as an executive or judicial officer of any state, to support the Constitution of the United States, shall have engaged in insurrection or rebellion against the same, or given aid or comfort to the enemies thereof. But Congress may by a vote of two-thirds of each House, remove such disability.

            It would appear that more than 300 sanctuary movement leaders who are elected officials could be kept off the ballot for another office, by asking them for a copy of their Congressional waiver of disability.  Citizens could accuse these people of insurrection or rebellion against the United States for failure to obey the immigration laws.  They may be required to produce their waiver from Congress to election officials before they are allowed to run for another office.

          Section 3 is generally not thought of when the 14th Amendment is discussed, but it is still part of the Constitution and will be subject to little court interpretation.  This was not a partisan bill passed by a bare majority.  This is an amendment to the United States Constitution passed by two thirds of both the House and Senate and  ratified by three fourths of the states on July 9, 1868. Who will be the first person to challenge Section 3 as not being constitutional?
