Congress Gets Another Chance to Pass 'Kate's Law'

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) and U.S. Rep. Steve King (R-IA)
Congress has reintroduced a piece of legislation known as "Kate's Law," which targets undocumented immigrants who illegally return to the U.S. after being deported.
Kate's Law is named after Kate Steinle, who was gunned down in July 2015 in the so-called sanctuary city of San Francisco by Juan Francisco Lopez-Sanchez, who authorities said had re-entered the country after being deported.

The law would impose a minimum five-year federal prison sentence on those who illegally return after deportation.
Fox News anchor and attorney Gregg Jarrett joined "Happening Now" Monday to discuss this legislation.
Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) and U.S. Rep. Steve King (R-IA) introduced the bill last week. Kate's Law passed last year in the House of Representatives but was filibustered by Senate Democrats.
