House passes Kate’s Law, as part of illegal immigrant crackdown | Fox News

One bill passed by the House would deny federal grants to sanctuary cities and another, Kate’s Law, would increase the penalties for deported aliens who try to return to the United States.

Kate’s Law, which would increase the penalties for deported aliens who try to return to the United States and caught, passed with a vote of 257 to 157, with one Republican voting no and 24 Democrats voting yes.

Kate’s Law is named for Kate Steinle, a San Francisco woman killed by an illegal immigrant who was in the U.S. despite multiple deportations. The two-year anniversary of her death is on Saturday.

  1. Kate’s Law is another of those ideas that sounds good but will do a lot of damage. Mandatory minimum sentences swell prison populations, cost billions of dollars, and cause lots of nonviolent people to spend years in prison. https://wp.me/p8LJUj-5i
