BREAKING: Senate Democrats BLOCK Legislation To DEFUND SANCTUARY CITIES For Illegals
Apparently, Democrats think illegal immigrants take precedent over the safety of American citizens now.
Here’s what they just did in the US Senate today via The Hayride:
Just as Sen. David Vitter (R-LA) introduced legislation to put an end to what is known as “sanctuary cities,” which harbor illegal immigrants and refuse to deport them as requested by immigration officials, Senate Democrats shut down the measure.
Vitter’s ‘Stop Sanctuary Policies and Protect Americans Act’ would have stripped federal funds to every sanctuary city in the country, which would include New Orleans and San Francisco.
However, Senate Democrats voted to block the legislation, and the White House has already threatened a veto of the legislation.
“It’s maddening that the Democrats are encouraging sanctuary cities like New Orleans that refuse to cooperate with federal immigration enforcement and let dangerous criminal illegals free,” said Vitter in a statement afterwards.
Liberal logic: Illegal immigrants matter more than American citizens.
