Trump-Fueled ‘Kate’s Law’ Bill Moves to Battleground in Senate

President Donald Trump rose to campaign fame on wave of promises to crack down on the border, citing the egregious murder of Californian Kate Steinle — who was shot by an illegal who was taking advantage of San Francisco’s sanctuary city status — as cause for massive concern.

Republicans in the House were backed by two dozen or so Democrats in voting in favor of this law.

Bob Menendez (D-N.J.) said.
