ACTION ALERT – YES! Justice for Victims of Sanctuary Cities!
In his State of the Union address, President Trump highlighted the travesties resulting from sanctuary policies. New York City failed to honor ICE's detainer request for a man previously arrested for assault. That individual is now charged with raping and murdering a 92-year-old woman.
In California, police detained an illegal alien with five prior arrests, including convictions for robbery and assault, but as required by California's notorious SB 54, the sheriff released him. The criminal went on to murder one victim and wound several others. Trump called for Congress to pass the Justice for Victims of Sanctuary Cities Act that allows victims of crimes committed by illegal aliens to sue the sanctuary cities that released the criminals.
Tell your Representative and Senators to support S 2059 and HR3964, the Justice for Victims of Sanctuary Cities Act!
CAPS sent you an alert on these bills when they were introduced last summer. Now they will receive the national attention they deserve. The companion bills by Sen. Thom Tillis (R-NC) and Rep. Ted Budd (R-NC) would allow victims of murder, rape, or other serious felonies, or family members of a victim, to bring a civil action against a sanctuary jurisdiction if the jurisdiction failed to honor an immigration detainer from the DHS.
Let’s prevent more tragedies. Time after time, we have seen the heartbreaking stories of a crime that did not have to happen. Sanctuary jurisdictions are a threat to our communities and to the rule of law. As Barbara Jordan said, “Credibility in immigration policy can be summed up in one sentence: those who should get in, get in; those who should be kept out, are kept out; and those who should not be here will be required to leave.”
