Hey Dems, 'Kate's Law' is Popular With Americans

Kate Steinle was murdered by an illegal immigrant in San Francisco this summer. After the tragedy, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) and Rep. Matt Salmon (R-AZ) introduced Kate's Law to punish criminals who have been deported numerous times.

The legislation didn't get far before Democrats stopped the effort on the Senate floor. A new Rasmussen Reports survey, however, proves they acted against the majority of Americans.

Fifty-six percent (56%) of Likely U.S. Voters favor a five-year mandatory prison sentence for illegal immigrants convicted of major felonies who return to America after being deported. A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that just 27% oppose such legislation, while 18% are undecided.

Moreover, 59 percent say America is not "aggressive enough" in punishing illegal immigrants who commit felonies.

Sanctuary cities like San Francisco have been criticized for their lackadaisical immigration policies. In these locations, authorities are not permitted to detain people flagged by Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents. Over 200 cities follow these guidelines - and voters have no patience for them.

Sixty-two percent (62%) of Likely U.S. Voters think the U.S. Justice Department should take legal action against cities that provide sanctuary for illegal immigrants. The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that just 26% oppose Justice Department action against sanctuary cities.

Democrats who have no problem with illegal immigration should take a look at these numbers before rejecting Kate's Law again.
