Border security bill aims to cut sanctuary cities funding
Senate Majority Whip John Cornyn announced he and three other Republicans (John Barasso, Ron Johnson, Thom Tillis) are introducing a border security bill Thursday that would:
- Expand resources to our borders;
- Pressure sanctuary cities to cooperate with federal and law enforcement authorities, or else have federal funds withheld;
- End catch-and-release, a policy that has allowed immigrants caught in the U.S. without proper documentation to live freely;
- Increase penalties for drug trafficking offenses.
