Rhode Island Senators Reed and Whitehouse voted against the Kate's Law bill. Kate's Law includes legal provisions that would crack down on undocumented aliens who are deported and then return to the United States, and would receive a mandatory five year sentence in a federal penitentiary upon conviction.
Contact Senators Reed and Whitehouse and ask them why they prefer to allow criminal illegal aliens to walk our streets of RI. Ask them why they don't mandate all employers use EVerify. Ask them why they don't empower our RI State Police and local ICE enforcement officers to efficiently do their jobs of reigning in illegals and deporting them, especially repeat, criminal illegal aliens. Who are the sell outs? Who has stayed in political office for too long?
Congressman David Cicilline isn't any better and does not have Rhode Island citizens as priority #1 when it comes to safety and security.
Excerpt from August 12, 2015: Cicilline’s “Grand Theft Auto” Sanctuary City by Arthur Christopher Schaper:
"Vaughn testified before Congress late July on this problem, and the overreaching need for Congress to stop the municipal madness that allows illegal aliens to roam free in American cities.
Some of her most telling comments at the hearing included:
As someone who has also lost a close family member,” Vaughan said, “my brother, because of a negligent act by a sworn law enforcement officer and also a bad policy — and I should add that the offense that was committed was one that some on this committee would call a ‘minor traffic offense’ that killed my brother, I have to say that it is really not OK to refer to these tragedies as a ‘little thing,’ as one member of this committee has.
Her remarks about Providence, Rhode Island, and former Mayor David Cicilline caught my attention:
“I have a friend. Her name is Heather. A few years ago, she was carjacked at knife-point and taken to Roger Williams’ Park in Providence, Rhode Island, and raped repeatedly by an illegal alien who had been in the custody of the Providence Police Department more than once,” but was released thanks to a mayor’s sanctuary city policies.
“This was not a ‘little thing,’” she declared. “I have other friends, some in this room, who can tell similar stories. And I’m afraid Congress is about to get away with doing just a ‘little thing’ just by barring funding from these sanctuary jurisdictions, some funding. And I’m asking you today to not be satisfied by just doing a ‘little thing.’ This big problem requires you to have the courage to do a bigger thing.”
Vote them out!
"The first reason is the home country of the alien’s refusal to accept their return. Vaughn reported that twenty-three countries currently are uncooperative” with ICE efforts to repatriate the individual with their home country. Sixty-two others are listed as “strained.”
Unfortunately the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that immigrants ordered deported can not be held for more than 180 days except in certain situations. ICE was forced to release 2,166 aliens from custody in 2015 and a total of more than 6,100 during the previous two years.
The second reason for the aliens remaining illegally in the country after being ordered deported is they simply disappear. “Former immigration judge Mark Metcalf has analyzed immigration court data and found that more than half of non-detained aliens skip out on their hearings, Vaughn wrote in the report.
The third reason listed is sanctuary policies of many cities located across the country. Vaughn reported that dozens of state and local governments have adopted sanctuary policies that obstruct ICE from being able to take deportable aliens into custody."
Providence, R.I. is one of those cities.
Senate Democrats yet again, shot down Kate's Law yesterday which would have cracked down on sanctuary cities. The Democrats will sit on the House floor and sulk like embarrassing fools, never hesitating to fully propagandize another mass shooting, while another father sits on a dock holding his dying daughter in his arms. Their efforts will continue to fail in attempting to take away the very same level of protection that is afforded to them, as they continue to favor and protect the criminal aliens that walk our streets, putting American citizens in continued danger every day.
Here's what Jobs With Justice, a pro illegal alien non-profit entity in R.I. celebrated back in 2014 (the same non-profit that planned to march across Rhode Island demanding drivers licenses for illegal aliens):
"Major Victory for Immigrants’ Rights in RI: An End to “ICE Holds”
JULY 21, 2014 / RIJOBSWITHJUSTICE
"After 3 years of organizing by RI Jobs With Justice, The Olneyville Neighborhood Association, and other members of the Todos Somos Arizona (We Are All Arizona) Coalition and allies, Governor Chafee issued an executive order last week
******preventing the RI Department of Corrections from handing people over to Immigration and Customs Enforcement.***** This massive victory will dramatically limit deportations in our state, helping to quell the fear undocumented workers and family members live with everyday."
The fear Rhode Island citizens live with every day is that criminals who have broken our laws over and over again, are walking our streets. How many more Kate Steinle deaths will it take to enforce our immigration laws? We must demand that our elected politicians put Rhode Island taxpaying citizens first.
The last words Kate Steinle's dad heard from his daughter were, "help me dad" as she lay in his arms dying after another illegal alien, that was deported multiple times, was allowed "sanctuary" in a city, only to murder an innocent daughter on San Francisco docks, right in front of her family.
Remember who really has your back in November everyone!!
