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.
AG Sessions Says Sanctuary Cities Are Risking Federal Money By Refusing to Cooperate with Immigration Authorities
SESSIONS TO SANCTUARY CITIES … COMPLY WITH IMMIGRATION AUTHORITIES OR LOSE BILLIONS …
Yesterday Attorney General Jeff Sessions warned sanctuary cities, localities and states that they could lose federal money for refusing to cooperate with immigration authorities and suggested the government would come after grants that have already been awarded if they don’t comply. Imagine localities and states in the USA who would put the criminal illegals ahead of the safety of American citizens? The ball is in your court liberal sanctuary cities, comply or lose billions in federal monies.
MAKING AMERICA SAFE AGAIN.
Attorney General Jeff Sessions on Monday warned so-called sanctuary cities they could lose federal money for refusing to cooperate with immigration authorities and suggested the government would come after grants that have already been awarded if they don’t comply.
Sessions said the Justice Department would require cities seeking some of $4.1 billion available in grant money to verify that they are in compliance with a section of federal law that allows information sharing with immigration officials.
His statements in the White House briefing room brought to mind tough talk from President Donald Trump’s campaign and came just three days after the administration’s crushing health care defeat. But Sessions also acknowledged he was reiterating a similar policy adopted by the Obama administration last year.
“I urge the nation’s states and cities to carefully consider the harm they are doing to their citizens by refusing to enforce our immigration laws,” Sessions said.
