Republicans in the Senate are resorting to clever measures to curb violence in America — specifically in sanctuary cities where Democratic leaders let illegal immigrants hide from justice.
Sens. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., and Ted Cruz, R-T.X., are saying enough.
They’ve introducing legislaton allowing those harmed by illegal immigrants to sue sancuary cities.

In other words, The Justice for Victims of Sanctuary Cities Act is out to make Democrats pay for protecting illegal immigrants over American citizens.
Democrat-controlled cities like Los Angeles, New York City, Philadelphia, and Denver, Co. more have allowed illegal immigrants to hide from the law.
Graham has had enough.
“A good piece of legislation that is long overdue,” Graham said of the proposed law. “There must be consequences for governments and entities that gamble with public safety, refuse to work with federal officials, and refuse to deal with felons here illegally. This legislation empowers individuals who are the victims of these entities and governments’ poor decisions.”
“The American people,” Cruz wrote, “and Texas communities in particular, are tired of seeing our federal immigration laws flouted and criminal illegal immigrants enabled to commit future crimes and escape prosecution. Sanctuary cities and their policies are a dangerous affront to the rule of law, and only exasperate the crisis at our border.”
These cities are promising illegal immigrants a gift for breaking the laws of the land.
And soon, harmed residents may make the Democrats pay for it.
