Rep. Steve King, Iowa Republican, said Capitol Police don’t have clear permission to handle immigration violations, so they often don’t bother to check the legal status of those they arrest for other offenses in the Capitol complex.

 That leads to bizarre situations where illegal immigrants proudly proclaim their unauthorized status in the U.S., while protesting or blockading offices. They are processed and released without being turned over to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

“The Capitol Police, a federal law enforcement agency, do not have explicit statutory authority to enforce our immigration laws,” Mr. King said.

    Any Judge, Senator. Representative, Governor, Mayor, Police Commissar and Sheriff that allows these Sanctuary States and Cities should be removed from office for not upholding the our Constitution that they all swore to uphold.
    As long as we allow these Sanctuary cities and states to exist we DO NOT have equal justice under the law.

      We never did have equal justice under the law. There are 2 justice systems in this country: Rich and Poor
