Senate vote TODAY on Sanctuary Cities!
Senate to vote TODAY on Sanctuary Cities legislation -- Call your Senators and urge them to vote YES!
The Senate will vote on a bill introduced by Sen. Pat Toomey of Pennsylvania that would block certain federal funds for sanctuary cities. We need your urgent phone calls this morning to both of your U.S. Senators asking them to vote YES on the motion to proceed to Sen. Pat Toomey's bill, S.3100.
Sen. Toomey's bill, the Stop Dangerous Sanctuary Cities Act, S.3100, would define a "sanctuary city" as any state-level jurisdiction that fails to communicate with federal immigration officers or comply with a detainer request. The bill would also block certain federal grants to sanctuary jurisdictions and protect local police from liability if they act on behalf of DHS.
The Senate could also vote today on Sen. Ted Cruz's "Kate's Law", S.2193. You may remember that Sen. Cruz introduced this legislation after last year's tragic shooting of San Francisco woman Kate Steinle at the hands of a five-times deported illegal alien who had been set free by the city's sanctuary policies. The bill would increase penalties for repeat border crossers.
Thank you for your urgent activism!
