Anti-Sanctuary Bill | Kentuckians For The Commonwealth

Anti-Sanctuary Bill

House Bill Number: 

House Bill 51 would require local law enforcement agencies and KSP to enforce immigration laws; prohibit local governments from adopting sanctuary policies; withhold state funding; prohibit educational institutions from enrolling, employing, or contracting with undocumented folks; require post-secondary educational institutions to keep records of immigration status; withhold state funding.

Bill Sponsor(s): 
Reps. L. Bechler + 17 others

KFTC's platform supports the right of residents who are undocumented to be treated with the respect and dignity that all human beings are entitled to.

House Bill 51 is a bad bill that is somewhat different from Senate Bill 1, the Family Separation Bill. Most of the legislative focus concerns SB 1. We oppose and will monitor HB 51 as well.
