Seven Republicans (three of them Cubans) voted against the Sanctuary Cities law and ten abstained. I think it's a weak bill that probably will be eviscerated in conference, but that’s not why they voted against it.
Over at Instapundit, one of the bloggers wrote
DON’T LOOK NOW, BUT WHILE TRUMP WAS BUSY TWEETING MEAN THINGS ABOUT THE MSM, House passes Kate’s Law, as part of illegal immigrant crackdown.A commenter replied:
On to the Senate.
Busy? It took seconds.[House passes 'Kate's Law' and bill targeting sanctuary cities, By Cristina Marcos, The Hill, June 29, 2017]
I'm busy, looking up which Republicans voted No ...
Three Democrats defected from their party to support taking away grants from the sanctuary localities: Reps. Matt Cartwright (Pa.), Henry Cuellar (Texas) and Collin Peterson (Minn.). Seven Republicans voted against the bill:
Reps. Justin Amash (Mich.),
Carlos Curbelo (Fla.)
Mario Diaz-Balart (Fla.),
Dan Donovan (N.Y.),
Peter King (N.Y.),
Dave Reichert (Wash.)
Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (Fla.).
