Many Americans are sick and tired of our government prioritizing IMMIGRANTS over our very own citizens.
We have veterans on the streets, we have unemployed and wounded servicemen, we have EMT’s suffering from PTSD, and we have crime rampant throughout our inner cities…and these liberal politicians like Obama have the NERVE to give away our tax dollars to non-citizens.
Thankfully, with President Trump in office, things are changing—the House just passed Kate’s Law, which will MASSIVELY decrease illegal immigration rates, and will specifically give the federal government more power in dealing with unconstitutional “sanctuary cities,” which are filled with crime and drugs.
The Washington Examiner reports:
“Lawmakers also passed a bill that would increase penalties against deported immigrants who reenter the country illegally. That bill is a response to the 2015 murder of Kate Steinle in San Francisco by an immigrant who had been deported five times and was convicted of seven felonies.”
“Republicans have tried to pass Kate’s Law since then, and are hoping the bill can finally become law under President Trump, who supports it. President Obama had opposed it.”
“The bill would let judges increase penalties against illegal immigrants who are deported after being convicted of a crime, and who then reenter the country.”
FINALLY! Our politicians are starting to stand up for AMERICAN interests, and not pandering to illegal immigrants who commit sex crimes and rape our women. This has been long overdue, and it has Americans all across the country cheering for President Trump.
“For too long, illegal reentry of criminal entries has been viewed as a minor felony with only a fraction of those repeat offenders ever seeing the inside of a federal courtroom,” says Bob Goodlatte, House Judiciary Committee Chairman.
“These horrific events must be better deterred and prevented,” he said in reference to Kate Steinle’s murder in 2015. Steinle was murdered by an illegal immigrant who had been convicted of SEVEN felonies, and had illegally reentered the country FIVE times.
With Kate’s Law now in place, the government will have much more power to jail scumbags like these, and prevent them from EVER laying a finger on our citizens.
Under the bill, if a deported alien reenters the US illegally with a felony or three misdemeanors on their record, they would be sentenced up to 10 years in prison. In addition to this, the bill would penalize cities which fly in the face of American values, by taking in thousands of illegal immigrants.
“The bill is a response to Republican complaints that sanctuary cities are improperly refusing to cooperate with federal officials on immigration, which is preventing those officials from ensuring that dangerous and possibly criminal aliens are detained and deported.”
“To that end, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement today can ask local law enforcement officers to detain someone suspected of being deportable for an extra 48 hours, but they are simply requests and many local jurisdictions do not comply with them.”
Both President Trump and Attorney General Sessions urged the house to pass this bill, and thankfully, they listened. “This simple, straightforward bill combats dangerous sanctuary policies that permit criminals to go free,” Bob Goodlatte said on the floor.
