Sen. Burr Statement on Senate Democrats’ Filibuster of Kate’s Law and Sanctuary Cities Bills

WASHINGTON –Today, Senator Richard Burr (R-NC) made the following statement on the Senate Democrats’ filibuster of both Kate’s Law (S. 2193) and the Sanctuary Cities (S. 3100) bills:

“These two bills are important for both those who care about the rule of law and those who care about keeping law abiding Americans safe from repeat offender criminals. I’m disappointed Senate Democrats are voting to prevent these bills from going forward, and in doing so, they are continuing to put American lives at risk. Regardless of one's position on immigration, we should all be able to agree that illegal immigrants who are known violent criminals should not be allowed to roam free in the United States.”
