Kate’s Law: Any illegal immigrant with an aggravated felony that gets deported then sneaks back into the country would get a mandatory five-year prison term.
“Kate’s Law,” if passed, will be perhaps, the biggest piece of illegal immigration reform ever proposed since the “Dream Act” was presented to Congress back in 2010.
It will also be a responsible and measured safeguard to ensure that repeat offenders of America’s illegal immigration laws will not be free to roam the streets and commit violent crimes.
It’s about time but comes a bit too late – especially for Kate Steinle – the murdered woman in San Francisco who the law is righteously named after, and who was shot to death by an illegal immigrant who had been deported five times and had seven felony convictions.
What took it so long? Why did it take a tragedy for the entire country to wake up and finally see the realities and hidden dangers of illegal immigration’s, “Sanctuary” cities?
In America’s quest to “bring us your tired and poor,” it has forgotten its responsibility to protect its own natural born citizens. It has let appeasement and its obsession with political correctness trump over the rights and safety of those who reside in America legally.
Jeb Bush has proactively referred to illegal immigration as “An act of love.”
Other people call it an inept policy failure by the Obama administration to properly secure our southern borders.
Written by Sen. Charles Grassley (R-IA) “Kate’s Law” is a sensible attempt to banish a progressive, bureaucratic blunder that allows criminals to escape punishment under the guise of “friendlier” community policing.
Give a criminal a free “get out of jail” card and he will have more respect for the police.
That’s the same twisted logic used by Obama State Department spokeswoman, Marie Harf, when she said better employment opportunities for ISIS fighters would cause them to throw down their guns and abandon their “jihad.”
Rewarding and protecting bad behavior brings good behavior – how insanely backward is that ideology?
It’s time to stop ignoring the negative consequences of pandering to illegal immigration. Weeding out the criminal element that comes across our borders will only strengthen sensible and responsible immigration reform.
It’s time to make “Kate’s Law” a real law…before there is another irreversible tragedy that could have been avoided.
