Sanctuary cities harbor criminals and deny justice for victims of their crimes. Congress must hold these cities accountable and restrict federal funding if they fail to meet basic standards of safety.
Law-abiding Americans shouldn't live in fear that law enforcement will be told to stand down or be denied the resources to adequately protect our communities. The longer Congress refuses to act, the more dangerous living in America becomes.
That's why Senator Dean Heller has co-sponsored "Building America’s Trust" Act. This bill holds sanctuary cities accountable by restricting federal funding for their refusal to enforce federal law and demands accountability. No one should be above the law.
The government so far has failed to protect its citizens and with truly tragic results. Senator Dean Heller’s bill holds sanctuary cities accountable and sends a message: their lawlessness will not stand on his watch. Demand Congress act and protect communities not criminals.
