A new bill is in its final stages, as Indiana Republican congressman Todd Rokita is ready to go through with it first thing Monday. The bill includes prison time and fines regarding elected officials who have been protective over criminal illegal aliens awaiting deportation.
The bill, respectively titled the “Stopping Lawless Actions of Politicians (SLAP) Act,” will work beyond the Justice Department warnings to cut funding and grants to those jurisdictions who made it their mission to protect illegal immigrants.
As per Fox News, the bill has prepared a $1 million fine and a maximum five years in prison if a jurisdiction is found guilty of the aforementioned activities.
Rokita made the move, revolted by the fact that illegal immigrants are being hugely protected in certain areas in the country.
“The American people are rightfully infuriated watching politicians put their open-borders ideology before the rule of law, and the safety of the people they represent,” Rokita said, according to WYRZ.
Many Americans supported the bill, also protesting the pampering of illegal aliens, with Kate Steinle’s and Jamiel Shaw II’s fathers being most upspoken about it.
“There’s no other way you can join it. Justice was rendered, but it was not served,” Steinle’s father Jim said upon learning Thursday that Zarate was acquitted on charges of murder, manslaughter, and assault with a deadly weapon.
Jamiel Shaw Sr., a father who experienced tragedy after his 17-year-old son was shot and killed by an illegal immigrant who was “on his third gun charge,” gave his thoughts on the Steinle verdict.
Shaw stated the jury was merely a group of “left-wing nutjobs” who didn’t mind having Zarate around, just to provoke Trump’s anger.
“He’s going to be the one that so-called takes down Trump,” Shaw stated. “That’s all they cared about.”

The jury did, however, charge Zarate with a ‘mild’ weapons charge, and he’s now looking to three years in prison if found guilty.
Rokita will also become a familiar face in the upcoming Senate race, for the seat of Democrat Joe Donnelly.
