Sen. Cortez Masto: Here's why I introduced a bill to thwart Trump's deportation planSen. Catherine Cortez Masto, a freshman senator from Nevada and the body’s first-ever Latina member, aimed her maiden bill squarely at President Trump. The bill rescinded Trump’s executive order making nearly all of the country’s 11 million undocumented immigrants priorities for deportation and defunding so-called sanctuary cities that limit cooperation with federal authorities’ immigration actions. With the Democrats in the minority in the Senate, the bill has a near zero chance of passing, but Cortez Masto felt she had a duty to speak out.
