Rep. Harris Applauds Passage of Kate’s Law and No Sanctuary for Criminals Act

WASHINGTON, DC: On June 29, the House of Representatives passed H.R. 3003, the No Sanctuary for Criminals Act, and H.R. 3004, Kate’s Law. These bills will improve public safety by combating dangerous sanctuary city policies and strengthening penalties for deported criminal immigrants who re-enter the United States. Congressman Andy Harris (MD-01) issued the following statement in support of these bills and their passage:

“I am proud to have voted for the No Sanctuary for Criminals Act and Kate’s Law. These bills are commonsense solutions to preventing crime and keeping the American people safe. For years, the Obama Administration allowed criminal illegal immigrants to roam our streets and harm innocent Americans. Kate Steinle, the namesake of Kate’s Law, was shot and killed by an illegal immigrant in San Francisco – a sanctuary city. The man that killed Ms. Steinle had been deported and re-entered the United State five times – and if the San Francisco government had not allowed criminal immigrants to walk freely in its city, Kate would still be with us today. The Federal Government must enforce the rule of law, and owes justice to the families of victims like Kate, whose death could have easily been prevented.”

The house passed it how about the senate?

this should've passed the FIRST time it was before Congress. They're just having oh-sh*t moments all over the place. Now they're beginning to realize why Trump was elected and want to jump on big band wagon. We're not falling for the oops moments and quick saves.

The reason it didn't pass the first go around was because of the additional verbiage for other matters in the bill. This is how government works.

Gop has control of house senate and white house? What's the hold up on healthcare and taxes? You can't use executive orders.

It's the same old politics story.
YOU play the bad guy for a few years and then WE will do it for a few.

"We, the people" should know it. The republicans, who for 7 years, whined about obamacare and how they were going to repeal it and replace it with better programs.
SEVEN YEARS to put together a comprehensive replacement.
They TALKED a lot of smack, but like always, produce nothing.
In the private sector, if you are THAT unproductive, at that salary range, you get fired.
They go on vacation and work part time.
Republicans, some of who just use the moniker, should have had a plan IN PLACE and ready to implement.
I still say we need to hang each and every one of them.
They stopped representing "we, the people" at least 50 years ago.
Keep cheering.

Imclain, you're a jaded fellow. First off, you know I'm a big fan; however, the way our government was designed, the representatives were only supposed to do their repping part-time.

See, those crazy framer kids had this bit where they wanted the representatives to have proper jobs (and businesses) in their district which they went back to for long periods of the year. Congress was never meant to be a full-time career endeavor because they actually believed it would tarnish and jade the representatives if it should become one. Imagine that.

Seems founding fathers had a tad bit more insight into futures than the blight on society that liters DC today.

I know, crazy, right?!

The House only has about 60 working days before the end of the years. Running out of time to get things done. My prediction - no meaningful tax reform this year. Healthcare will be no better than obamacare.
