Tell Albany: Pass Laken's Law Now!

SEN. Robert G. Ortt

The brutal murder of 22-year-old Laken Riley could have been avoided.
Pass Laken's Law

The nation has been watching the case of Laken Riley with horror – the life of a bright young woman who’s life was brutally cut short by an illegal immigrant. Make no mistake, Laken Riley would be alive today, if not for the bad policies, championed by state and federal Democrats, who opened our borders and continue to refuse to hold criminals accountable. New York State's sanctuary state status and revolving-door legal system that lets loose dangerous criminals allowed for Laken's alleged killer, illegal immigrant Jose Ibarra, to go free after being arrested in New York City.  Ibarra was let go in Queens after being arrested for endangering the welfare of a child despite the fact federal ICE agents were looking to hold him in custody.

Senate and Assembly Republican lawmakers have introduced legislation, LAKEN'S LAW (S.8533/A.9167), that would prevent this tragedy from ever happening again.  Laken's Law requires local and state law enforcement and certain courts to notify ICE (US Immigration and Customs Enforcement) upon the arrest or conviction of non-citizens, would reinstate the 365 day maximum sentence for a class A misdemeanor, and would repeal the “protect our courts act” of 2020 which was designed to discourage cooperation and enforcement of federal immigration laws.  

SIGN BELOW and tell Albany politicians holding this critical legislation up that we must pass Laken's Law and end New York's sanctuary protections for illegal immigrants NOW.
