Sanctuary city officials who have been defying federal law through their sanctuary policies will now face personal consequences, including prison time and large fines if a bill that
Sanctuary city politicians have been acting with impunity in violating federal law in protecting and refusing to cooperate with federal authorities attempting to remove illegals from the country. They’ve been able to avoid legal consequences to this point but that may be about to change.
Following the mind-numbing slap to the face of American citizens delivered by the libtards of San Francisco in finding the subhuman, 5-times deported Zarate not guilty of murdering Kate Steinle, a GOP congressman is taking steps to change all that.
Indiana Rep. Todd Rokita plans to introduce a bill on Monday that would provide the penalty of large fines and prison time to elected officials determined to have provided sanctuary to illegal criminal aliens, and impeding the efforts of the federal government to act in their official capacity as the enforcement agents of federal immigration law.
His bill, appropriately titled the “Stopping Lawless Actions of Politicians (SLAP) Act” would hold state and local politicians criminally responsible for refusing to comply with federal immigration enforcement efforts. Sanctions include a $1 million fine and up to five years in prison.
Rokita said, “Politicians don’t get to pick and choose what laws to comply with. Americans are dying because politicians sworn to uphold the law refuse to do so.” He added, “It’s time the federal government gets serious about enforcing immigration laws and holding politicians accountable who conspire to break them.”
Rokita faces an uphill battle as a similar law in Texas is currently being challenged by open borders globalists seeking the assistance of agitator judges who will impose their agenda on the American people.
He’s also facing the very real prospect that even if his bill is passed by the House, there’s a big stack of legislation collecting dust on Mitch McConnell’s desk, including Kate’s Law, named after the murdered Ms Steinle. There’s absolutely no reason to believe that this bill, as needed and important as it is, won’t also be killed off in the sanctuary office that has Mitch McConnell’s name on the door.
