H.R. 3009: Enforce the Law for Sanctuary Cities Act

This was a vote to pass H.R. 3009 (114th) in the House.

The Enforce the Law for Sanctuary Cities Act (H.R. 3009) would end funding from the State Criminal Alien Assistance Program to state or local governments that inhibit the enforcement of federal immigration laws or prohibit officials from gathering information on the citizenship of any individual. According to a press release by bill sponsor Rep. Duncan Hunter (R-CA50), the bill is designed to penalize “sanctuary cities,” which provide shelter for illegal immigrants, for refusing to cooperate with the federal government on immigration policy. The bill passed the House by a partisan vote of 241–179 with Republicans voting in favor and Democrats voting against.
