"We're willing to see what this looks like", said Rep. Carlos Curbelo, R-Fla., a leader of the lawmakers trying to force the House to address the issue.

Communities are coming out against reckless sanctuary policies and in support of our Federal immigration laws that protect the American people. "A local ordinance is preempted by state law, and therefore invalid, when it 'duplicates, contradicts or enters an area fully occupied by general law, either expressly or by legislative implication"'.
