Kate's Law and anti-Sanctuary City Law passes in the House

"Kate’s Law, named after Steinle, would impose a two-year prison sentence on illegal immigrants who have been deported or denied admission to the U.S., but who sneak back in anyway. The goal, backers said, was to try to root out repeat-illegal immigrants who are responsible for a striking string of high-profile crimes.

It cleared on a 257-167 vote, and even garnered support of two dozen Democrats.

The anti-sanctuary city bill, meanwhile, would guarantee local police the ability to work with immigration agents and would curtail lawsuits against communities that do cooperate with Homeland Security. That bill was approved on a near party-line vote, 228-195."

Read about it... from Thomas Madison.
