House Should Pass Bill To Stop
Funding Sanctuary Cities
The House should pass legislation to penalize “sanctuary cities” by withholding Federal funds, said Peter Thomas of Americans for Constitutional Liberty. “It is time to crack down on local governments who protect known lawbreakers”, said Thomas.
The House is expected to vote Thursday on the Enforce the Law for Sanctuary Cities Act, introduced by Rep. Duncan Hunter, Jr. (R-CA). It would cut off funding for criminal alien assistance programs if a local or state government fails to provide information to the Federal government on immigration matters.
Sanctuary cities, such as San Francisco, often refuse to provide information on illegal aliens or offer any assistance in capturing or detaining them. A woman was recently murdered in San Francisco by an illegal alien who had been released from jail even though city officials knew he was wanted for deportation.
Americans for Constitutional Liberty (formerly The Conservative Caucus) is a grass-roots, public policy action organization, founded in 1974. It was active in defeating the SALT II Treaty, repealing the Catastrophic Coverage Act, blocking the Clinton health-care takeover, preventing passage of amnesty for illegal aliens and persuading the House of Representatives to sue President Obama.
