FINALLY, KATE’S LAW IS PASSED TO PROTECT US CITIZENS FROM ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION CRIMINALS …
The House passed Kate’s Law yesterday, which would increase the penalties for deported aliens who try to return to the United States and caught. The vote passed 257 to 157, with one Republican voting no and 24 Democrats voting yes. Following the passage of the law President Donald Trump stated, “Now that the House has acted, I urged the Senate to take up these bills, pass them, and send them to my desk. I am calling on all lawmakers to vote for these bills and to save American lives.”
House Republicans took action Thursday to crack down on illegal immigrants and the cities that shelter them.
One bill passed by the House would deny federal grants to sanctuary cities and another, Kate’s Law, would increase the penalties for deported aliens who try to return to the United States.
Kate’s Law, which would increase the penalties for deported aliens who try to return to the United States and caught, passed with a vote of 257 to 157, with one Republican voting no and 24 Democrats voting yes.
Kate’s Law is named for Kate Steinle, a San Francisco woman killed by an illegal immigrant who was in the U.S. despite multiple deportations. The two-year anniversary of her death is on Saturday.
President Trump called the bill’s passage “good news” in a tweet, adding “House just passed #KatesLaw. Hopefully Senate will follow.”
As noted by Legal Insurrection, the House also passed a bill to deny federal grants to sanctuary cities. These two legislative acts are off to the U.S. Senate. I will make this one statement to the Senate, especially to RINO’s and the Democrat senators who are up for reelection in 2018 in states that Trump won in 2016 … if you do not vote yes for the protection of legal US citizens, kiss your political careers goodbye.
