The legislation, introduced by Sen. David Vitter (R-LA), would restrict federal funds and grants to jurisdictions that serve as sanctuary cities for illegal immigrants and refuse to cooperate with federal immigration authorities.

“I think it is unfair that because one undocumented immigrant killed a wonderful human being that all immigrants are being blamed for that killing.
