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.”
