Congress could approve two laws against undocumented immigrants

Canada's Ruthlessly Smart Immigration Policy - The New York Times

Two dozen Democrats voted with the GOP on "Kate's Law" to impose tougher sentences on illegal re-entry into the USA, while another vote on "sanctuary cities" was even more partisan.

The second bill would take away some federal grants from states and cities actively taking part in the sanctuary movement.

"For six years, we have been just getting by - cutting resources as the world becomes more unsafe, asking more and more of those who serve, and putting off the tough choices", said Rep. Mac Thornberry, R-Texas, the House committee's chairman. Goodnow also said that even if the law were passed, its fight would be "far from over".

Citing the death of Kate Steinle - a 32-year-old California native who was allegedly shot by an illegal alien with a criminal record who was previously deported five times - proponents of the bills said stronger penalties for those residing in the country illegally with a history of violent crimes are long overdue.

Three of first lady Melania Trump's guests at the president's address to Congress in February were people who had family members killed by undocumented immigrants. Both panels approved plans late Wednesday for the fiscal year that begins October 1 The House committee calls for $696 billion in defense spending for 2018 while its Senate counterpart demands $700 billion.

The U.S. House helped advance a central plank of President Donald Trump's agenda on Thursday by passing two immigration laws that were swiftly denounced by critics as "xenophobic" and "riddled with constitutional violations".

"The word "sanctuary" calls to mind someplace safe, but too often for families and victims affected by illegal immigrant crime, sanctuary cities are anything but safe", Kelly said. This will guarantee local police the ability to work with immigration agents, stopping lawsuits against local jurisdictions that cooperate with Homeland Security.

In late spring, freed from custody and in San Francisco, Lopez-Sanches stole a.40-caliber pistol from an unlocked vehicle belonging to U.S. Bureau of Land Management office, leading to his shooting Steinle at Pier 14 two years ago by a repeat felon who had been deported several times before illegal reentry.

Turkey to retaliate against Kurdish YPG fire from Syria: Deputy PM
Secretary of Defense Jim Mattis suggested on June 27 that the USA may continue to arm the Kurds after the battle of Raqqa. Ryan Dillon said on Sunday. "We side with the territorial integrity of Syria", he added.

"That's because San Francisco is one of about 300 cities that openly refuse to turn over criminal illegal aliens to federal law enforcement", Sessions wrote.

"Now that the House has acted, I urged the Senate to take up these bills, pass them, and send them to my desk", Trump said.

On Wednesday, Trump met with more than a dozen families of Americans who were victimized by illegal immigrants, including Steve Ronnebeck, the father of Grant Ronnebeck, who was shot and killed by a convicted felon who was in the country illegally in 2015.

Kate's Law calls for sentences of up to 25 years for deported criminals who are caught reentering and have committed serious crimes.

"Sanctuary cities are magnets for illegal immigrants including some unsafe people with criminal records", Roby told The Daily Caller News Foundation.

But it is unlikely the bills will pass the Senate.

Both bills represent steps by the Trump administration and their allies to crackdown on illegal immigration. "I am calling on all lawmakers to vote for these bills and to save American lives".

Tennessee Republican Rep. Marsha Blackburn echoed Roby's sentiments, saying it's unacceptable certain jurisdictions refuse to comply with the law. A mother of a victim told the New York Times she was so overwhelmed by the President's statements on immigrations she cried.
