Victory: House Passes Kate’s Law

June 30, 2017

House-Passes-Kate'sLawmakers also passed a bill that would increase penalties against deported immigrants who reenter the country illegally. That bill is a response to the 2015 murder of Kate Steinle in San Francisco by an immigrant who had been deported five times and was convicted of seven felonies.

Republicans have tried to pass Kate’s Law since then, and are hoping the bill can finally become law under President Trump, who supports it. President Barack Obama had opposed it.

The bill passed 257-167, with the help of 24 House Democrats. The legislation would let judges increase penalties against illegal immigrants who are deported after being convicted of a crime, and who then reenter the country.

“For too long, illegal reentry of criminal entries has been viewed as a minor felony with only a fraction of those repeat offenders ever seeing the inside of a federal courtroom,” said bill sponsor and House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte, R-Va., during floor debate.

    Who is going to enforce the new law when you have Demon Rats and the ACLU supporting Illegals .

    It is nothing but smoke and mirrors again. McConnel knows that it won’t pass the Senate and he won’t do a damned thing about it, again the O/Soros Agenda will continue as his trained monkeys do his bidding. We see what is going on, it is clear as the nose was on Durante’s face. They are nothing but RINO and they are no different from the Democrat Party/Progressive/Socialists. They are One World Order boys and girls and their masks are being torn off. Trump came in and tore them off.

    Now only one thing to do and Trump will do it, come 2018 he will rally across this country and he will name names and call the vermin out into the open so they can be exterminated. It will take another term in office and new leadership to right this Republic and if we don’t right it then folks get ready for rough times.

    Now, let’s see if the Senate has 60 strong-willed members who will stand up and do what’s right by passing this bill. But, this would mean 100% of Repub. and at least 8 Dems would have to support it. Considering that the Libs are hell-bent on obstruction, this might be a difficult obstacle to overcome.

    Need to get Mexico (for illegals from there) to agree to have the criminal be deported to farest point in southern Mexico so it becomes very difficult for the criminal to return. Just deporting them to just across the border will not stop them from returning. Others like from El Salvador will have a more difficult time if deported to their home country
