Two immigration enforcement measures touted by President Trump have won approval in the Republican-controlled House.
FOX's Jared Halpern has more from Capitol Hill:
A pair of near party-line votes in the House approves two immigration enforcement bills:
(Kelly) "We are a nation of laws and we will no longer look the other way."
Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly pushed for the bills, one, Kate's Law, named for a San Francisco woman killed by a man who crossed the border illegally multiple times, would increase penalties to repeat offenders.
A second measure authorizes federal funds be withheld from so-called sanctuary cities and states that don't cooperate with immigration enforcement. Both bills now head to the Senate.
