The House has passed an amendment to the Department of Homeland Security appropriations bill that would withhold federal emergency-services funding from "sanctuary cities" that protect illegal aliens. This is thanks to the ongoing efforts of Tom Tancredo, R-Colorado and also 50 Democrats who voted in favor making the outcome 234 to 189.
This may bode well for the defeat of the shamnesty bill which will almost surely make it through the den of corruption and iniquity known as the US Senate.
"If I were Nancy Pelosi, I'd be asking if she could pass a vote on amnesty on the House side," Tancredo said. "If she lost 50 Democrats on this one, and she says she needs 70 Republicans to pass the immigration plan, this is an interesting indicator of things coming down the pike, and that the times, they are a-changing."
Thank God for patriots like Tancredo and those who stand with him.
