King Introduces Ending the Sanctuary Capitol Policy Act

Jul 28, 2017
Press Release

Congressman Steve King released the following statement after introducing H.R. 3486, the “Ending the Sanctuary Capitol Policy Act of 2017:”

“The Capitol Police, a federal law enforcement agency, do not have explicit statutory authority to enforce our immigration laws,” said King. “Without clear authority they are not investigating the immigration status of protesters openly claiming they are here illegally while disrupting Committee proceedings and shutting down Congressional offices. 

My bill, ‘Ending the Sanctuary Capitol Policy Act,’ simply empowers a federal law enforcement agency to enforce federal law. The House and Senate cannot call for an end to sanctuary cities while their offices serve as sanctuaries for lawlessness. The Rule of Law rests on reliable enforcement everywhere and Congress needs to take the sanctuary plank out of its own eye.”
