(Washington Free Beacon) Sanctuary policies pose a threat to public safety Sen. Pat Toomey (R. Pa.) thinks; his new legislation would block them from receiving some federal funds to try to change their minds. Weve historically relied on common sense and a common sense of duty to protect the public from dangerous criminals Toomey told the Washington Free Beacon in an interview Wednesday. Unfortunately that expectation no longer applies to these cities. So weve got a bill that would withhold funding that the cities very much like with the hope that that would begin to change their mind. Toomeys bill reintroduced last Thursday would deny federal grant money to sanctuary jurisdictions either cities or states. Toomey floated the proposal last year when it was denied cloture as part of a series of votes on immigration taken by the Senate in a single whirlwind session.
