( During an interview on Fox News Sunday Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) said that sanctuary cities, “should not be receiving federal criminal assistance money - period."

Host Bret Baier asked McConnell, “In the wake of all the attention of sanctuary cities, after this murder of 32-year-old Kate Steinle in San Francisco authorities say, at the hands of an illegal immigrant - five-time deportee - will Congress move on sanctuary city legislation?"

McConnell replied, "We should.  I think any sanctuary city - for your viewers, that means that these are places where they choose to ignore the law, should not be receiving federal criminal assistance money, period."
