Senate Democrats Lead Charge to Kill Anti-Sanctuary City Bill, Kate’s Law

U.S. Capitol Visitor Center Prepares To Open To PublicSenate Democrats led the charge today in protecting the status quo and turning their backs on public safety with two important procedural votes that have killed two immigration enforcement bills, both in honor of Kate Steinle.  Steinle is the California woman who was killed last year by an illegal alien with seven convictions and five deportations.  Both bills required 60 votes to proceed to the floor of the Senate for consideration.  The first bill, The “Stop Dangerous Sanctuary Cities Act,” (S. 3100), introduced by Senator Pat Toomey (R-PA), would have allowed the federal government to withhold funds from sanctuary cities.  It lost by a vote of 53 to 44, with only Democratic Senators Joe Donnelly and Joe Manchin having the courage to choose protecting Americans over partisan politics.  The second vote prevented discussion on the merits of “Stop Illegal Reentry Act,” also known as Kate’s Law, sponsored by Texas Senator Ted Cruz (R).  The bill, which lost by a vote of 55 to 42, would have instituted mandatory minimum sentences for illegal reentry into the country. Those voting against either or both measures are listed below:

    EVERYONE that Voted “against” the Kate’s Law Bill is a Traitor to the American People! The Bill was to protect the American People from ILLEGAL Aliens that commit MURDER against a U.S. Citizen. These pathetic excuses claiming to be representing the U.S. People, just voted to protect CRIMINAL ILLEGAL Aliens instead of the American People. Every one of these Senator’s took an Oath “To Uphold the U.S. Constitution and to Protect the American People.” Yet, their Vote, states just the opposite! That CRIMINAL ILLEGAL Alien’s mean more to them then their own constituents. Take note of EVERY name on this List. For the American People “WILL” be out in force to make sure that none of them every go back to Congress again. Elections are coming. And their only hope is that the can get enough Votes from ILLEGAL Aliens to keep them in office! On a personal note: To (UP) Chuck Schumer and Gillibrand, you two make the People of NYS sick to our stomach’s. To think that you two care more for ILLEGAL’s than your own People. May you both spend an Eternity in Hell with ALL Traitors!

    Those that voted against Kate’s Law need to be put out to pasture ASAP. They are a disgrace, an insult to everyone in this country and not fit for the office they hold. Absolutely pathetic.

    Democrats equal open borders. That’s why I can no longer support them. And a story that’s being ignored nationally, a 68 year old Viet Nam vet in Jacksonville was attacked and beaten at a gas station by a young black man when the vet told the clerk he was voting for Trump. Isn’t the line always that it’s Trump supporters that are violent? But seems like they are the ones that get attacked. Wonder if NBC will be carrying this? You know what the answer would be if it was a Hillary supporter getting beaten up.
