    Harry Reid: Waste of Time to Detain Illegal Alien Criminals

    Senate Minority Leader – “Dingy” Harry Reid – has shown the American people where his loyalties lie; and it isn’t with us.

    When the Senate blocked legislation which would have reined in so-called “sanctuary cities” in America, it was Reid and his Democrat minions who led the charge to keep these hardened criminals

    safe from any kind of prosecution.

    His attitude was very cavalier as he explained why he instructed his fellow Democrats to reject this common sense proposed law.

    Senate Democrats on Tuesday blocked legislation that would have withheld funding for “sanctuary cities,” which shield criminal illegal immigrants from federal immigration authorities.

    The bill needed 60 votes to advance, but it received only 54. Two Democrats (Joe Manchin of W.Va. and Joe Donnelly of Indiana) voted to advance the bill; and one Republican (Mark Kirk of Illinois)
    voted to block it.

    Before the vote, Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid accused Republicans of wasting the American people’s time:

    “Republicans are wasting the American people’s time with a partisan vote on the Donald Trump Act. That’s what we’re going to vote on at 2:15. That’s what the House members have called it, and I think it’s a

    pretty good description of what we’re doing out there,” Reid told a news conference on Tuesday.

    Appearing with Reid, Sen. Chuck Schumer called it a “show vote” — Republican grandstanding for political reasons.

    Can these jaded Democrats be so unfeeling and callous about the safety of the American people to allow illegal alien criminals to run free on America’s streets? Given their vote against the legislation,
    it appears so.

    The legislation blocked in the Senate stems from the July 1 shooting of Kate Steinle in San Francisco. The man accused of killing her, Juan Francisco Lopez Sanchez, was in the country illegally despite

    a long criminal record and five prior deportations.

    Because San Francisco is a sanctuary city for illegal aliens, local police released Sanchez despite a request from federal immigration authorities to keep him behind bars. A short time later, Kate Steinle was dead.

    The Republican legislation blocked on Tuesday would have withheld some federal funding for sanctuary cities. It also included a provision called Kate’s Law, which would set a five-year, mandatory minimum

    sentence for any illegal immigrant who re-enters the U.S after having been convicted of an aggravated felony, or having been twice convicted of illegally re-entering the U.S.

    The House of Representatives passed similar legislation in July.
