WASHINGTON - U.S. Senator Tom Cotton (R-Arkansas) today released the following statement on House passage of Kate's law and anti-sanctuary city legislation:

"It's only fair to give the maximum penalty to people who show the minimum regard for our laws. And it should go without saying that we won't tolerate sanctuary cities' willful defiance of federal law. Public safety must always come first. I'm glad to see the House take the first step to address these pressing issues, and I hope the Senate will follow suit soon."
