(Worthy News) - The House approved legislation Thursday to punish so-called "sanctuary cities" for failing to cooperate with federal immigration authorities, in the first congressional response to a brazen murder earlier this month in San Francisco allegedly committed by an illegal immigrant, Fox News reported.

The bill, sponsored by Rep. Duncan Hunter, R-Calif., would penalize jurisdictions that bar the collection of immigration information or don't cooperate with federal "detainer" requests, by blocking them from receiving certain federal law enforcement grants and funding.

It passed 241-179. The Senate is considering similar legislation. [ Source ]

  1. Of course they presented something they know will get vetoed, they don't want it any more than he does, they have financed everything he has done so it is an insult to Americans intelligence that they make this pretense.
