Wednesday, Sen. Patrick Toomey (R-PA) revealed he is reintroducing his “Stop Dangerous Sanctuary Cities Act” — legislation he said will bring an end to an “outrageous policy” that protects “violent criminals.”
Toomey said he agrees with President Donald Trump that the border crisis is a “defining issue” for 2020, adding his bill is about protecting Americans.
“I’ve reintroduced my legislation, which would withhold important categories of federal funding for cities that choose to endanger all of us this way,” Toomey advised on Fox News Channel’s “America’s Newsroom.”
“I’m going to insist on a vote,” he said of his bill. “I’m going to take another run at getting this done.”
Toomey later stated, “I don’t see how reasonable people come to the conclusion that we should all be endangered by allowing violent criminals to roam our streets, provided that they came here illegally.”
