If liberals had their way, American would have no borders and definitely no wall.
However, Indiana Representative Todd Rokita, a Republican (of course), has introduced a bill that would jail law elected officials for not enforcing immigration laws.
Since we know that liberals want a flood of illegal immigrants in this country, doesn’t this put every liberal official as a potential violator? But I digress.
Rokita is calling his bill the SLAP Act — Stopping Lawless Actions of Politicians Act — and it will target “Sanctuary Cities” and its officials who harbor and fail to deport illegal immigrants.
In an interview with “Fox & Friends,” Rokita said, “These sanctuary cities need to end. They harbor illegal criminals. And if these politicians don’t obey a valid, constitutionally-upheld federal law, if they’re going to act like criminals themselves, then we ought to lock them up.”
He goes on to say that those who fail to comply would be considered felons as this law would make it a felony for refusing to obey federal orders.
He later continued his campaign on Twitter:
The American people are rightfully infuriated watching politicians put their open-borders ideology before the rule of law, and the safety of the people they represent.

According to this bill, elected officials could face up to five years in prison and up to a $1 million fine for refusing to abide by the federal immigration enforcement laws.
This bill introduction comes just as the jury came to a “non-guilty” verdict in the Kate Steinle case — a case that involved the killing of an innocent woman by the hands of an illegal immigrant.
In light of this verdict, Rokita hits the nail on the head with his new SLAP Act. He couldn’t be more right when he calls lawmakers “criminals” who don’t enforce immigration laws. Jose Ines Garcia Zarate, the illegal immigrant who killed Steinle, was released from a San Francisco prison just three months before the murder despite a federal request for deportation.
This tragedy could have been avoided had this liberal sanctuary city actually obeyed the law and deported this criminal.
You can rest assured, though, that if this bill passes, President Donald Trump will be there with pen in hand, ready to sign this much needed legislation into law.
We have laws on the books for a reason. Unfortunately, most liberals care more about the illegal immigrant vote than the American lives that have been lost.
