The No Sanctuary for Criminals Act, H.R. 3003, has passed the House. This
bill would block grants from the Department of Homeland Security and
Department of Justice from going to jurisdictions that refuse to comply
with federal immigration detainers.
3003 will do a LOT to keep dangerous criminals out of America's cities
and towns and if this passes the Senate, too, Pres. Trump will sign it.
needs to take the all-important momentum from passing H.R. 3003 and
pass the Davis-Oliver Act as it was marked up in the Judiciary
committee. And the President knows it. On Wednesday, President Trump renewed his call for the passage of the Davis-Oliver Act:
package includes the Davis-Oliver Act, whose passage I called for
nearly a year ago at my inauguration speech and immigration speech...
We're calling on all members of Congress to honor grieving American
families by passing these lifesaving measures in the House, in the
Senate, and then sending them to my desk for a very rapid signature."
Help send these bills to Pres. Trump so he can turn them into law.
"We will end the sanctuary cities that have resulted in so
many needless deaths. Cities that refuse to cooperate
authorities will not receive taxpayer dollars, and we will work
with Congress to pass legislation to protect those jurisdictions that
do assist Federal authorities... Countless innocent American lives have
been stolen because our politicians have failed in their duty to secure
our borders and enforce our laws... Now is the time for all of
us, as one country, Democrat and Republican, liberal and conservative,
to band together to deliver justice and safety and security for all
-- Donald Trump, August 31, 2016
NumbersUSA urged Members of Congress to vote yes on the No Sanctuary for Criminals Act. As we stated in our vote scoring, "This bill is an important first step in improving interior immigration enforcement.
We can no longer sacrifice the lives of Americans to sanctuary policies
that protect criminals." But it is just that: a first step.
We continued, "We owe it to the American victims of foreign criminals, terrorists, and gang members to follow this vote with a vote on the entire Davis-Oliver Act, as marked up by House Judiciary Committee."
H.R. 3003 is the first enforcement bill passed by the House since Pres. Trump took office in January. But just two weeks ago, the House also passed the Verify First Act, which will keep illegal aliens from getting taxpayer-funded health-care subsidies.
Keep the ball moving!

army of millions has overwhelmed Congress in opposition to illegal
immigration, defeating amnesty proposals again and again and again. This
year, with a supportive president in the White House for the first
time, we are ready to go on the offensive.
