Hudson Votes to End Sanctuary Cities and Enhance Public Safety
 
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, U.S. Representative Richard Hudson (NC-08) released the following statement after the House passed two bills to strengthen public safety by combating dangerous sanctuary city policies that permit criminals to go free and by enhancing penalties for deported illegal immigrants who return to the United States:
 
“Here in North Carolina, we’ve unfortunately seen the deadly consequences of the failure to deport illegal immigrants with criminal backgrounds. The lax enforcement of our immigration laws and tolerance of sanctuary cities ends now. We must continue to work to secure our border first and fix our immigration system in a thoughtful way that respects those who do things the right way - not those who break the law.”
 
Kate’s Law (H.R. 3004) protects public safety by enhancing penalties for deported criminals who return to the United States. The bill is named after Kate Steinle, who was murdered in San Francisco by an illegal immigrant who had previously been deported five times and was convicted of multiple felonies.
 
The No Sanctuary for Criminals Act (H.R. 3003) strengthens the law to combat dangerous sanctuary policies that shield unlawful and criminal immigrants from federal immigration enforcement.
