The Davis-Oliver Act: Congress’ Toughest Immigration Bill Is Still Waiting In The Wings

The toughest anti-illegal immigration bill remains on hold as Congress is set to vote on two anti-illegal immigration bills Wednesday that the White House supports.
Kate’s Law and the No Sanctuary For Criminal Aliens Act both work to fulfill President Trump’s immigration agenda. The president frequently mentioned the murder of Kate Steinle on the campaign trail. She was murdered in 2015, and a five-time deported illegal immigrant currently faces charges for the crime. If signed, the law would increase penalties for deported immigrants who return to the U.S.
The other bill the House is expected to vote on Wednesday, the No Sanctuary For Criminal Aliens Act, also works to fulfill a Trump campaign promise. The law would not allow jurisdictions that refuse to comply with federal immigration detainers to receive grants from The Department of Homeland Security and The Department of Justice. Those funds would instead be allocated to localities that comply with detainers.
The act would also prohibit state and local law enforcement officials from refusing to assist or cooperate with federal efforts to enforce immigration laws. White House press secretary Sean Spicer said Monday that the both bills are “major priorities for the president,” and added, “we look forward to signing them both.”
The Davis-Oliver Act, however, has gotten approval from the House Judiciary Committee and would accomplish what both these laws would do and more. --->
