Congressman Steve Womack (AR-3) today released the following statement after House passage of H.R. 3009, the Enforce the Law for Sanctuary Cities Act:
“As a former mayor, I understand firsthand the danger illegal immigration poses to local communities and firmly believe that cities should put the safety and security of its citizens before the interests of those here illegally. Our immigration system undoubtedly needs reform, but there is absolutely no excuse for harboring and releasing criminal aliens and blatantly skirting federal law. This deliberate lawlessness must stop.”
Congressman Steve Womack has represented Arkansas’s Third Congressional District since 2011 and serves on the House Appropriations Defense, Financial Services and General Government, and Labor-Health and Human Services subcommittees and the House Committee on the Budget.
