Chief Deputy Whip Patrick McHenry (NC-10) released the following statement after the House of Representatives passed H.R. 3003, the No Sanctuary for Criminals Act and H.R. 3004, Kate’s Law:


“President Trump was elected on a pledge to protect our homeland and ensure security for all Americans. Today, the House passed two important bills that help fulfill the President’s commitment to making public security the top priority.

“The No Sanctuary for Criminals Act begins a long overdue crackdown on sanctuary cities by withholding federal taxpayer funds for these cities that refuse to enforce our laws. Kate’s Law pays tribute to Kate Steinle who was murdered by an illegal immigrant who had re-entered the country after being deported. This new law will toughen punishments for illegal immigrants who re-enter, hopefully preventing future tragedies like what the Steinle family experienced.”
