Tomorrow: Hearing on Ending Sanctuary Policies in Kansas

1024px-Kansas_State_CapitolKansas House Bill 2466 (HB 2466), which prohibits localities in Kansas from instituting sanctuary policies that restrict local cooperation with federal immigration officials, will be heard TOMORROW, February 3, 2016 at 3:30PM in the House Judiciary Committee (Room 112-N). This hearing was rescheduled from January 21.

Please contact members of the Committee and tell them to support this critical legislation!

Tell them that local cooperation and assistance in the enforcement of immigration law is good public policy. The benefits of anti-sanctuary city bills like HB 2466 include:

  • Fighting illegal immigration by eliminating the attraction for illegal aliens to come to Kansas;
  • Furthering the public safety and welfare of Kansas residents and visitors;
  • Taking away competition for scarce jobs; and
  • Providing ICE with critical assistance to enable it to accomplish its mission to identify and remove criminal aliens who are already in state or local custody.

Call Committee members TODAY and tell them that they should end dangerous sanctuary policies in Kansas by supporting HB 2466!

  1. And Kansas is a Conservative Establishment [Apparently] Republican State

    What’s the difference between an Open Border Rubio and Open Border Clinton?

    A thin dime.

  2. Even Iowa Caucaus Establishment Republicans [like Rubio and Cruz] Say They Don’t Like Sanctuary Cities

    But their actual walk contradicts their phony talk. Snippet:

    “…In Iowa, at least 26 of the state’s 99 counties are deemed sanctuaries — including some of the state’s most conservative.

    The designation is an informal one, assigned by activists on both sides of the immigration debate. Governments are generally considered sanctuaries if local officials refuse to honor requests by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement to hold onto suspected illegal immigrants arrested on minor charges while fed­eral agents figure out their status.

    After a federal appeals court ruled in 2014 that these requests — known as “detainers” — were optional, the American Civil Liberties Union alerted local sheriff’s departments that they would be subject to lawsuits if they held a citizen without a proper warrant. Nearly 300 jurisdictions nationwide, conservative and liberal, have opted not to take that risk.

    No wonder Trump barely lost, Iowa and Rubio gained traction there, it reminds me of a Midwestern San Francisco open border area. The voters are partially brainwashed?
