Congresswoman Marsha Blackburn of Tennessee has introduced to the House the Clear Law Enforcement for Criminal Alien Removal Act of 2009 (HR 2406) which would fund the continuation of the 287(g) local law enforcement program that allows them to screen and find illegal aliens in their communities who have been arrested. The bill also would end federal funding to cities that are sanctuary cities for illegal aliens. These cities include places like San Francisco who openly thumb their noses at immigration law.
Current co-sponsors include the following:
Akin, W. Todd [MO-2], Bilbray, Brian P. [CA-50], Broun, Paul C. [GA-10], Brown, Henry E., Jr. [SC-1], Brown-Waite, Ginny [FL-5], Cole, Tom [OK-4], Fleming, John [LA-4], Franks, Trent [AZ-2], Heller, Dean [NV-2], Lamborn, Doug [CO-5], Marchant, Kenny [TX-24], McClintock, Tom [CA-4], Pence, Mike [IN-6], Pitts, Joseph R. [PA-16], Price, Tom [GA-6], Rogers, Mike J. [MI-8], Rohrabacher, Dana [CA-46], Royce, Edward R. [CA-40], Simpson, Michael K. [ID-2]
I urge you to call congress and have your rep support HR 2406. You can find Capitol Switchboard number in the sidebar.
Of course those in favor of illegal aliens are against this because actually enforcing the law threatens their pocketbook, their power and their racialist goals. They have no interests in doing what is best for America or the American people.
