Title: Stop Dangerous Sanctuary Cities Act (Toomey Amendment)

Vote Smart's Synopsis:

Vote on a motion to invoke cloture on an amendment to H.R. 2579 that prohibits sanctuary cities from receiving economic and community development grants.

Highlights:

 

  • Prohibits sanctuary jurisdictions from receiving grants for community and economic development and public works (Sec. 1).

  • Specifies that sanctuary jurisdictions are states and municipalities that don't comply with immigration detainer requests from federal immigration authorities (Sec. 1).

  • Requires this to go into effect on October 1, 2018 (Sec. 1).

NOTE: INVOKING CLOTURE REQUIRES A 3/5 MAJORITY OF THE SENATE. IT IS NOT A VOTE ON THE PASSAGE OF THE PIECE OF LEGISLATION, BUT LIMITS FURTHER DEBATE TO 30 HOURS. CLOTURE IS TYPICALLY USED TO END A FILIBUSTER. A FAILED CLOTURE VOTE OFTEN PREVENTS THE LEGISLATION FROM EVER COMING TO A VOTE.
