Before he was elected, Donald Trump said that he would crack down on illegal immigration, and he’s keeping his promise by following through this week when the House passed Kate’s Law.
House Republicans passed the law on Thursday which will crack down on illegal immigrants and the cities that shelter them.
This bill will deny federal grants to sanctuary cities and another, Kate’s Law, would increase the penalties for deported aliens who try to return to the United States.
Kate’s Law, which would increase the penalties for deported aliens who try to return to the United States and caught, passed with a vote of 257 to 157, with one Republican voting no and 24 Democrats voting yes.
Kate’s Law is named after Kate Steinle, a San Francisco woman killed by an illegal immigrant who was in the U.S. despite multiple deportations, and it’s been two-year since her death this Saturday.
President Trump called the bill’s passage “good news” in a tweet, adding “House just passed #KatesLaw. Hopefully Senate will follow.”
“He should not have been here, and she should not have died,” House Speaker Paul Ryan said Thursday, in a final push for Kate’s Law, an earlier version of which was blocked in the Senate last year.
“Our job here is to make sure that those professionals have the tools that they need and the resources that they need to carry out their work and to protect our communities. That is what these measures are all about,” added Ryan.
