LISTEN UP! (Kalin the ultra-liberal)
"On March 13th, your state legislator, REP. JEREMY KALIN, helped defeat a motion that would have allowed an up-or-down vote on HF 3010, a bill prohibiting sanctuary cities from harboring illegal aliens.
Cities like Minneapolis and St. Paul have sanctuary policies that prevent police officers from inquiring about immigration status or enforcing immigration laws. These policies are allowing illegal aliens to openly enjoy the benefits of citizenship without the fear of deportation.
Legislators who support sanctuary cities are trying to stall HF3010, hoping to simply allow the bill to die in committee. The recent vote was an attept to pull HF 3010 from committee to the House floor for an up-or-down vote. But Rep. Jeremy Kalin helped to defeat this motion.
Sanctuary policies cause a host of financial, legal and criminal problems that negatively affect the quality of life for legitimate Minnesota citizens. The recent bus crash in Cottonwood is a tragic reminder of this fact and should have been a wake-up call to our state legislators to get tough on illegal immigration. But some legislators like Rep. Jeremy Kalin don't seem to be getting the message."
