Justice for Kate Steinle: Key Senate Vote Tuesday

Google+ Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr +

FAIR Action AlertMore than three months have passed since Kate Steinle was tragically shot and killed in San Francisco by an illegal alien with seven convictions and five previous deportations. Since her July 1 death, Americans across the country have demanded that Congress act to punish sanctuary cities—State and local jurisdictions with policies that obstruct immigration enforcement. Finally, on Tuesday the Senate is prepared to act.

Call your Senators NOW!
Tell them to vote YES on S. 2146, the “Stop Sanctuary Policies and Protect Americans Act”

Introduced by Sen. David Vitter (R-LA) and Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-IA), S. 2146 is a commonsense bill that denies certain Federal funds to jurisdictions that refuse to (1) share information about criminal aliens with the Federal government or (2) recognize ICE detainer requests. Clearly, jurisdictions that obstruct immigration enforcement should not benefit from Federal dollars. Additionally, the bill increases penalties for illegal reentry and requires the Federal government to publish on a website a list of all sanctuary jurisdictions. These important provisions will help keep Americans safe!

One of the most troubling details about Kate Steinle’s death is that the suspect, Francisco Sanchez admitted he went to San Francisco because he knew it is a sanctuary city! Clearly, despite the compassionate sounding term, these jurisdictions pose a serious threat to public safety because illegal aliens know they are protected. As a result, Kate Steinle is dead and more Americans continue to be victimized by illegal aliens who should be locked up or deported.

Call your Senators NOW!
Tell them “sanctuary cities” threaten the safety of Americans!

Tuesday’s vote is incredibly important because it will finally put every Senator on record. The choice is clear: a YES vote on S. 2146 means the Senator wants to protect law-abiding American citizens; a NO vote means they want to protect criminal aliens—individuals who not only violate our immigration laws but our criminal laws as well.

Call your Senators. Tell them:

  • You OPPOSE sanctuary cities which ignore federal immigration laws and jeopardize American lives;
  • You expect them to VOTE FOR the “Stop Sanctuary Policies and Protect Americans Act” (S. 2146); and
  • You expect them to PRESSURE President Obama into signing the bill into law.

    My precious 13 year old son was killed by an illegal immigrant drunk driver in 2010 and he had a lengthy prior criminal background. When is it going to stop. So many innocent lives are being taken by illegals. My only hope is Donald Trump!!!

      RHONDA, YOU ARE EXACTLY CORRECT. HE WILL HELP/FIX THIS AND MANY OTHER PROBLEMS OUR COUNTRY SUFFERS FROM, UNLESS OBAMA FINISHES US OFF BEFORE 2016. HE SURE SEEMS TO BE WORKING HARD TOWARD THAT END. I’M SO SICK OF IT. RECOVERING FROM ALL THE DAMAGE DONE IS CRITICAL ASAP. EVERYONE NEEDS TO PRAY TO GOD TO PLEASE FORGIVE AND HELP THE USA. WE SO NEED GOD BACK IN OUR LIVES NOW!
