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.”
