Direct from David: Stop Sanctuary Cities
Today, at least 340 cities refuse to follow our nation’s immigration laws. These sanctuary cities harbor illegal felons who are committing crimes in our communities.
This summer, we witnessed the tragic impact this lawlessness has on American citizens when Kate Steinle was murdered in San Francisco, a sanctuary city, by a felon living in our country illegally who was previously deported five separate times.
This is unconscionable.
This week, I took action and voted in favor of the Stop Sanctuary Policies and Protect Americans Act. This bill would:
• End federal funds to sanctuary cities and jurisdictions,
• Require cities to cooperate with federal immigration agencies,
• Increase the penalty on illegal immigrant reentry, and
• Connect local law enforcement with federal immigration authorities.
Still, Senate Democrats blocked this important legislation because of their commitment to partisan politics.
Too many victims have unjustly suffered the consequences of sanctuary cities and the Obama Administration’s lack of action against illegal immigrants.
I assure you, I will keep fighting to stop this lawlessness.
P.S. – We must stop sanctuary cities now. Tell President Obama and Senate Democrats by signing this petition now.
