House Passes “Kate’s Law” and Sanctuary Cities Bill

Washington, D.C. – The U.S. House passed “Kate’s Law” and a bill focused on cracking down on sanctuary cities today largely along party lines. Chairman Phillip Huffines had this to say:

“The two bills passed by the House today are critical for defending Americans. For too long a secure border has been ignored which has put American citizens in danger,” said Chairman Phillip Huffines. “The passage of ‘Kate’s Law’ and the Sanctuary Cities bill allows law enforcement to crack down on criminals who have entered our country illegally and removes one of the biggest lures for illegal aliens. This is a big step for protecting all Americans.”

The sanctuary city bill passed with a vote of 228-195 and “Kate’s Law” passed by a vote of 257-167. The bills now have to go to the Senate before hitting President Trump’s desk.
