Sarah's Law passes in U.S. House
By WOWT 6 News | Jun 30, 2017
COUNCIL BLUFFS, Iowa. - A bill, named for a Council Bluffs girl killed
by a drunk driver, passed in the US House on Thursday.
Representatives passed Sarah's Law. It's named in memory of Sarah Root,
who died last year, when her car was hit by a street-racing drunk driver.
The suspect, Eswin Mejia, was an undocumented [ILLEGAL] immigrant.
He posted bail and vanished.

Sarah's Law would require US ICE to arrest illegal immigrants charged with a crime leading to death or serious injury.
A lawmaker gave Sarah's mother, Michelle, the official tally from the vote.
Sarah's Law is part of the larger No Sanctuary for Criminals Act.

Congressman Adrian Smith voted in favor of H.R. 3003, and H.R. 3004,
Kate’s Law. ...
“I have long said our immigration system must be based on the rule of law,” Smith said. ..“. Crimes like the one committed against Sarah Root are preventable, and this legislation will help restore justice.”
[According to Congressman Steve King today, Mejia's two lawyers were complicit
in some of his illegal activity.]
