New Bill Allows Victims to Sue Sanctuary Cities

The hundreds of victims of illegal aliens within sanctuary cities may finally get some long-awaited justice thanks to Republican’s Sen. Thom Tillis and Rep. Ted Budd from North Carolina. The politicans just introduced a bill Thursday, that would allow victims of crimes perpetrated by illegal immigrants to sue sanctuary cities if that is where the crime occurred.

The new bill dubbed “The Justice for Victims of Sanctuary Cities Act” allows victims of illegal aliens to sue up to 10-years after a crime was committed in the sanctuary city in which the illegal alien resides and where the crime was committed.

In a press release, Thursday Rep. Budd said: “I’ve found that sanctuary cities’ failure to cooperate with Immigration and Customs Enforcement (I.C.E) is reckless and has had a real cost on society, both economically and in terms of human lives.”

According to the Pew Research Center, illegal aliens with past criminal convictions made up about 74% of all arrests by Immigration and Customs Enforcement in 2018.

The bill is in response to the number cities within the country that have abandoned the rule of law, in favor of illegally assisting and protecting illegal aliens who have committed serious crimes against American citizens, forced in many instances to bear the tragic loss of losing a loved one without any legal remedy in holding those sanctuary cities accountable, until now.

The new bill states that a victim can sue the city if the illegal immigrant “benefited from a sanctuary policy of the sanctuary jurisdiction.”

The bill also specifies that the victim “would not have been so injured or harmed but for the alien receiving the benefit of such sanctuary policy.”

Moreover, any sanctuary city or state that refuses to assist the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) with an immigration detainer request is subject to the lawsuit.

Any victim that has been violently assaulted resulting in murder rape or any felony at the hands of an illegal immigrant can bring a lawsuit against the city. In the case of murder, a family member can file a lawsuit against the sanctuary city or state.

This new bill was introduced on July 25th under H.R. 3964, titled “The Justice for Victims of Sanctuary Cities Act.”

However, there have been other attempts in the past to hold sanctuary cities accountable, back in 2015 Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley introduced legislation that would block funding to sanctuary cities and other local governments that decline to cooperate with federal immigration officials.

The purposed legislation came on the heels of the Kathryn Steinle tragedy, after an illegal alien shot and killed the young woman walking along a pier with her dad in San Francisco.

Another half-hearted attempt to hold sanctuary cities accountable came again in 2018 by a Republican congressman from Staten Island, who introduced legislation that would cut off federal funding to sanctuary cities like New York, however, he previously declining to back sanctuary city measures pushed by the President.

Rep. Dan Donovan (R-S.I.), the borough’s former district attorney attempted to walk a political tightrope between the Trump administration and his constituents, when he purposed legislation that would target NYC with financial penalties, but not target funding to the NYPD, which on its face seemed impossible achieve.

Donovan’s purposed legislation seemed more like a desperate stunt in that he was locked in a tough primary fight with former Rep. Michael Grimm.

However this latest bill doesn’t attempt to cut off federal funding to sanctuary cities which have failed in the past; this new approach holds sanctuary cities legally accountable for refusing to assist in a detainer request of a criminal illegal alien which results in the death, rape or horrific criminal act against an innocent victim.

  2. About time. These pundits need to be held accountable for their insane decisions. They say that no one is above the law, and yet, they won’t apply this to themselves. Sue them until they bleed. That’s the only way to really hurt them. Blessings.
