Ryan: ‘Sanctuary Cities Are Putting Lives at Risk and We Cannot Tolerate That’

‘This initiative will toughen penalties for illegal immigrants who repeatedly reenter the country’

EXCERPT:

RYAN: "The first is Kate's Law. As you know, this is named after Kate Steinle who was murdered two years ago in San Francisco by an illegal immigrant who had been deported several times. He should not have been here and she should not have died. So this initiative, this initiative will toughen penalties for illegal immigrants who repeatedly reenter the country. The second measure gives the government the authority to withhold grants from cities that failed to cooperate with federal law enforcement. By flagrantly disregarding the rule of law, sanctuary cities are putting lives at risk and we cannot tolerate that."
