Roby Highlights Kate's Law, Sanctuary Cities Crackdown

Kate's Law is expected to increase penalties imposed on criminal aliens convicted of illegal reentry, deterring reentry and keeping criminal aliens off our streets.

Other red-state Democrats have already voted against the bill.

The bill would also authorize federal agencies to withhold grants from states or localities that attempt to frustrate federal immigration enforcement by enacting sanctuary policies that permit-or promote-local law enforcement's release of immigrant offenders facing deportation, or otherwise attempt to shield them from ICE and the U.S. Border Patrol.

BREAKING→ the House just passed #KatesLaw & the No Sanctuary for Criminals Act.

"For years, the lack of immigration enforcement and spread of sanctuary policies have cost too many lives", said House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob GoodlatteBob GoodlatteHouse passes "Kate's Law" and bill targeting sanctuary cities Homeland Security Secretary touts immigration bills The House can bolster immigration enforcement by passing two bills MORE (R-Va.), the author of both bills.

"American families deserve real solutions to our broken immigration system-that means fixing our immigration system, not playing politics by scapegoating immigrant communities and threatening the effectiveness of local law enforcement", said Rep. Michelle Lujan Grisham (D-NM), the chair of the CHC.

Both bills are being sponsored by congressmen with records of opposition to immigration. Supporters say this would incentivize cities to take stronger action against undocumented immigrants.

Democrats also pushed back on the characterization of sanctuary cities as gathering places for criminals. "Sanctuary cities are putting lives at risk and we can not tolerate that".

Democrats further accused proponents of the bill of stoking anti-immigrant attitudes.

AILA Executive Director Benjamin Jonhnson said the No Sanctuary for Criminals Act would make it "more hard for many localities, including large cities, to arrest and prosecute potentially unsafe criminals which surely can not be the intent of anyone involved in drafting this legislation". Many pointed out that the definition of "serious crime" was overly broad and that even low-level, non-violent drug offenses were being used as grounds for deportation. The department's programs depend on trust and positive rapport between police officers and the communities they serve.

But votes in the Senate as recently as a year ago have shown that measures dealing with immigration policy on a piecemeal basis, especially those viewed by Democrats as racially motivated and aimed at broadly painting immigrants as risky, are not likely to meet the Senate's 60-vote threshold required to advance most legislation.

And the laws vilify immigrants and make communities more risky, Rep. Juan Vargas, D-San Diego said.

"If you are going to receive taxpayer dollars from the federal government to keep people safe, then you have got to follow the law and keep them safe", Rep. "That's the reason why we do that".

The Senate is to consider two bills related to immigration and policy towards sanctuary cities June 29.

Only one Republican voted against Kate's Law, while 24 Democrats crossed party lines to vote in favor.

"To the extent that 60 [votes are still required], I would expect we'd be able to sustain", New Jersey Democratic Sen. Joe Donnelly, North Dakota Sen. Heidi Heitkamp and West Virginia Sen.
