Donovan Votes No on Watered Down Sanctuary Cities Legislation

In the wake of the tragic murder of Kate Steinle by a criminal alien who returned after removal, the Hunter Sanctuary Cities bill H.R. 3009, unfathomably contained watered down language of a previous amendment Rep. King succeeded in passing with the Commerce, Justice and Science Appropriation Act. Offering weak legislation and failing to address the release of criminal aliens, this ’sanctuary cities bill” actually weakened the cause and puts our law enforcement personnel and all of us in danger.

The Kings County Conservative Party supports strong legislation to stand against sanctuary cities. That is why we support this no vote by our Congressman Dan Donovan. He knows the difference between what legislation says it does and what it actually does and recognized the step backward this legislation took when he voted no.

The press release from the Congressman is posted below:

Joint Statement from Congressmen Dan Donovan and Peter King on HR 3009

July 23, 2015

“Sanctuary city policies are simply wrong and they undermine the rule of law.  Sadly, today’s legislation only makes a bad situation worse by cutting off funds to the police officers who put their lives at risk to protect all of us.  This legislation is fatally misguided, putting police officers and our constituents–including victims of domestic violence–at risk for the failed policies of City Hall. That is why we voted NO.”

Thanks for joining Brooklyn Conservatives’ Memorial Day commemoration and flag raising

A sizeable crowd of neighbors, local leaders including Congressman Donovan, Party leaders and members, scouts, veterans, and active duty personnel joined in the annual commemoration at lookout point as a new POW/MIA flag was raised. Many joined the Brooklyn Conservatives and marched in the Memorial Day parade in Bay Ridge. Thank you.

Getting it Right and Getting it Wrong- Dan’s got it Right, local dems just got it wrong- Read Common Sense: Getting it Right!

Our new Congressman Dan Donovan gets it right and carping local dems act surprised. Small ball politics over substance. Donovan’s stance on abortion is not new. However, term limited Councilmember Gentile’s record on the issue changes with the wind. Once having proclaimed himself “Pro-Life” Vincent or Vinnie’s latest salvos against Donovan play as inconsistent at best and leave the taste of sour grapes.

Other things to concentrate on include the tragedy on the rails and the need to overhaul Amtrak.
