A large part of Donald Trump’s campaign efforts were focused on rebuilding the immigration system Obama had oppressed for so long.

Shortly after his inauguration, Trump wrote executive orders in defense of the American people against immigration violence, and later refocused his efforts to passing permanent legislation.

But now, even with resistance from the left, the House of Representatives just passed two immigrant-regulatory bills, a major win for the White House and conservatives everywhere.

The two bills were both centered around anti-illegal immigration enforcement.

“No Sanctuary for Criminal Acts” authorized the Department of Justice and Homeland Security to effectively withhold any type of government funding or assistance for cities and states that attempt to hold “sanctuary status” for illegals.

It also extends mandatory detention periods for illegals who were caught conducting criminal activity, including drunk driving.

“Kate’s Law” was named after Kate Steinle, who was killed in San Francisco by a previously deported illegal alien.

The Daily Caller reports:

The “No Sanctuary” bill authorizes the Departments of Justice and Homeland Security to withhold grants from cities and states that refuse to comply with federal immigration law or honor immigration detention requests.

“Kate’s Law” raises the maximum prison sentences for illegal aliens caught re-entering the U.S. following deportation, with increasing penalties for repeat offenders. The bill is named after Kate Steinle, who was killed in San Francisco by a previously deported illegal immigrant, and whose name Trump has repeatedly invoked during calls for tougher immigration enforcement.

Trump has certainly focused on carrying out his promises to reform immigration and rid America of violent illegals running rampant in our streets.

His efforts to get the bills passed were met by praise from many who had been personally victimized by illegal alien crimes.

The Daily Caller reports:

Trump, who has made cracking down on illegal immigration the centerpiece of his policy agenda, heaped praise on the bills in the run-up to the vote. At the White House Wednesday, he met with the victims of crimes perpetrated by illegal immigrants, and called on Congress to advance the bills to his desk as soon as possible.

“You lost the people that you love because our government refused to enforce our nation’s immigration laws, and that’s including the existing immigration laws,” Trump told the family members gathered in the White House Cabinet room.

While the bills were expected to pass in the Republican-majority House, they are a welcome win for Trump’s administration, especially after the efforts it’s taken to find a better replacement for Obama’s disastrous health care plan.

The final obstacle will be convincing enough Democratic senators to break ranks and vote for Trump’s proposed immigration legislation.

Only three Democratic senators have shown their support for such legislation in the past, but a total of 60 are needed to pass the bill so Trump can sign it into law.

The Daily Caller reports:

The bills now move to the Senate, where Republicans will have to convince at least eight Democrats to break party ranks if the measures are to make it to the Oval Office for Trump’s signature. Last year, Kate’s Law received the support of three Democratic votes — Indiana Sen. Joe Donnelly, North Dakota Sen. Heidi Heitkamp and West Virginia Sen. Joe Manchin — but failed to get the 60 total votes needed to advance.

For now, a win’s a win for Republicans.
