Amazing - Tancredo's anti-Sanctuary bill passes

Leftists in municipal government have been making little symbolic gestures in favor of immigration - such as declaring their city or county to be a sanctuary. Usually these meaningless pieces of legislation pass simply because nobody notices and nobody really cares. It takes the tireless fanatacism that characterises the Left to keep thinking of and doing this sort of thing.

Well Rep. Tom Tancredo noticed, and he sponsored an amendment to a Department of Homeland Security appropriations bill denying homeland security funds to cities that pass such legislation. He has tried this 6 or 7 times before and each time it failed. This time it passed by a wide margin (even 50 Democrats voted for it).

Tancredo said he thinks his amendment is an indicator that the House would crush the reform plan if it passes in the Senate. "The times, they are a-changing." said Tancredo.

"WASHINGTON, D.C. – The U.S. House of Representatives this morning voted to withhold federal emergency services funding for "sanctuary cities" that protect illegal immigrants.
Anti-illegal immigration champion Rep. Tom Tancredo, R-Colo., sponsored the measure, which he says would apply to cities such as Denver and Boulder. He was elated by its passage, which stunned critics and supporters alike. "
