Barletta co-sponsor of illegal immigration legislation passed by House

The House has approved a bill to stiffen punishments for immigrants who re-enter the United States illegally.

The bill is named after Kate Steinle, a woman who was murdered allegedly by an undocumented immigrant with a criminal past.

Lopez-Sanchez, of Texas, has pleaded not guilty to the crime, but the fatal shooting put San Francisco's sanctuary city policy in the national spotlight.

However, the Washington Post Fact Checker on June 26 quoted White House spokesman Steven Cheung as saying the president was right to say "we are moving them out of the country by the thousands", because Operation Community Shield has resulted in "more than 4,300 criminal arrests and almost 3,000 civil immigration arrests of MS-13 leaders, members and associates".

On Thursday, the House passed HR 3004, known as "Kate's Law", which would impose mandatory minimum sentences on previously removed illegal immigrants who return to the United States.

The bill stipulates that an undocumented immigrant who has a criminal record who tries to reenter the U.S. could face 10 to 25 years in jail.

The bill is the second of two immigration measures the House passed Thursday as it moves to crack down on illegal immigration, a key priority for President Donald Trump.

'Closing these loopholes in our laws must be a priority if we are to make America safe from these unsafe transnational organizations'.

That measure, called the "No Sanctuary for Criminals Act", is aimed at cities that do not cooperate with federal immigration authorities, an attempt to give more legal heft to a Trump administration policy that has been tied up in the courts.

Pressed by reporters claiming that enforcing immigration laws was "cold", could break up families, or spread fear, Mr. Homan defended ICE's mission. "So we have to take steps", Wilson-Root said.

This was stated by Lorella Praeli, Immigration and Campaign Director of the ACLU to Univision, asserting that the law against sanctuary jurisdictions "would force state and local police agencies to violate the Fourth Amendment by requiring them to imprison people without due process or probable cause at the request of federal agents".

No Sanctuary for Criminals Act will cut federal grant money to cities that "shield unsafe criminal aliens from being turned over to federal law enforcement". It passed 228-195.

The convention featured speeches from parents whose children were killed by immigrants in the US illegally, and the White House has tried to keep a focus on the issue since then. Illegally reentering the US after being deported now can result in a prison sentence of up to two years.

The Fraternal Order of Police urged lawmakers to vote against the bill, saying it would strip communities of needed policing resources.

It also requires that localities comply with Immigration and Customs Enforcement requests to detain suspects for extra time, since some jurisdictions now don't always cooperate. Labrador is the chairman of the Judiciary Subcommittee on Immigration and Border Security. That provision holds that illegal immigrants must be detained during removal proceedings when they are arrested or charged with causing serious injury or death. Let's pass these bills through the House, through the Senate, and send them to my desk.

"Countless innocent Americans - including the loved ones of many families in the room with us today - have been killed by illegal immigrants with multiple deportations", Trump said while addressing a meeting in the White House Cabinet Room Wednesday.

U.S. Department of Homeland Security Secretary Ryan Kelly also spoke at Thursday's press conference, representing the Trump administration's hardline stance on immigration enforcement.
