The “Kate’s Law” bill has been introduced into the 115th Congress, giving lawmakers another run at legislation that would impose a mandatory minimum five-year prison term on illegal immigrants who re-enter the U.S. after being deported.

The legislation is named for 32-year-old Kate Steinle, who was shot and killed allegedly by a previously deported illegal immigrant felon in San Francisco. The House passed the bill last year but it died in a filibuster by Senate Democrats.

The bill was introduced again this week in the House by Rep. Steve King and in the Senate by Sen. Ted Cruz.

    Why isn’t Ted Cruz’s name highlighted in your article. He created the bill last year and deserves the credit. Cruz is an outstanding Senator.
