The ‘Donald Trump Act’ Just Passed The House By A Landslide, And Obama is FURIOUS About It

by Bill Callen| Top Right News

The House overwhelmingly passed a bill Thursday which would punish “sanctuary cities” that refuse to enforce federal immigration law, much to the anger of the Obama Administration, which had lobbied furiously to kill the bill.

H.R. 3009 passed easily in the lower chamber 241 to 179, Western Journalism reported. The bill would force local governments and law enforcement agencies to notify Immigration and Customs Enforcement if they have an illegal alien in custody; or face revocation of Federal law enforcement grants to their city.

“I think we can all agree that any state or locality must comply with the law—and they are required to coordinate and cooperate with the federal government,” said Rep. Duncan Hunter, R-Calif., who sponsored the legislation. “If an arrest is made, the federal government should be notified. The fact that San Francisco, Los Angeles and other cities disagree with the politics of federal enforcement doesn’t mean they should receive a pass to subvert the law.”

“And if they do, there needs to be consequences—and the way we impose those consequences is by hitting them where it hurts. In the pocketbook,” Hunter added.

The bill was passed after 32-year-old Kate Steinle was murdered earlier this month by an illegal alien who had been deported from the U.S. five times and had been previously convicted of seven felonies.

Steinle’s father testified before Congress in devastating testimony this week.

Under great pressure from constituents, and despite massive White House pressure, six Democrats went against Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, (D-CA), and voted for the bill: Reps. Ami Bera of California, Jim Cooper of Tennessee, Henry Cuellar of Texas, Bill Keating of Massachusetts, Collin Peterson of Minnesota, and Krysten Sinema of Arizona.

Opponents of the bill have tied it to Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump, including Pelosi, who in a statement earlier this week labeled the proposal the “Donald Trump Act.” Pelosi went on to call the bill a “wildly partisan, misguided bill that second-guesses the decisions of police chiefs around the country about how to best ensure public safety.”

“Just a few weeks into his campaign and Donald Trump has a bill on the floor of the House. That is better than some of the senators he’s running against,” Rep. Luis Gutierrez, D-Ill., a fierce opponent of conservative immigration measures, told The Hill Thursday.

But as Trump himself has moved to the front of national polls, and the sanctuary cities policies are opposed by a stunning 78% of Americans, supporters of the bill are embracing the title “Donald Trump Act” and demanding that Obama sign it, to the anger of the Democrats, who clearly miscalculated.

And Obama — already hurt by the publicity of a high-profile murder — and his allies have angrily defended the deeply unpopular  policies, and promised a veto.

But the bill is already rolling into the Senate, where Sens. Jeff Sessions, R-Ala., and Ron Johnson, R-Wis., introduced similar legislation to what has been passed in the House. The legislation, entitled the Protecting American Lives Act, goes a step further with language that includes a mandatory five-year prison sentence for any deported illegal immigrant who re-enters the U.S. illegally.

In light of Steinle’s murder, pressure is already intense on Senators to pass it, and it likely will pass with Republican votes. If Obama vetoes this bill, the Democrats will be blamed for these horrible crimes in 2016. Bring it on, Barry!

        People are smart enough to figure out that illegal aliens lower wages for legal immigrants and native-born Americans. People are smart enough to know that illegals are another dependent class that will create a whole host of problems that need to be “solved” by government. They should not be here in the first place!

        • Crysta

          People SHOULD be smart enough to realize the reason we have such crap wages, is cause big business prefers us poor and destitute, as we are easily controlled, and they can always blame someone else!

    I seem to remember there was a lawsuit filed by the federal government against Arizona for trying to enforce the immigration laws on the books where were these guys when Arizona needed backing?

    • Bob Wilkins

      Was that before or after the big turnover where the democrats lost horribly? not saying the new crop is better but that might explain it a bit?

      • nmpher29

        Obama suing Governor Jan Brewer of Arizona for enforcing immigration laws was before the Dems lost. That does explain it….a bit. Still not as good as I would like to see but a step in the right direction. I don’t know how Obama can live with himself. People have died because he refuses to deport illegals….he refuses to finish the border fence. He should be in prison.

        • Scott Retelle

          If i remember correctly the law suit was about racial profiling. the bill would of made it legal for any officer to force every citizen to prove on the spot they where a citizen or they would be arrested. witch is a violation of the constitution. the whole “show me your papers” thing.

          so the bill its self was a good bill. it just verily passed the red line of what is constitutional as it made illegal search and seasure legal. there where some parts of the bill that did make it threw the law suit but the liberal judges took out alot more than they should of.

          • Stan Bryars

            You are remembering what the very vocal opponents to the bill want you to remember.

            Police could not just stop anyone and everyone on the street and demand their papers.
            There had to be another reason you were being stopped and the police had t have reasonable suspicion that you were illegal before asking for your papers.
            My wife is an immigrant and it is specified that she must have her green card with her at all times. If she is stopped for some reason she is supposed to be able to produce the green card.

          • MidclassTaxpayr

            Oh, that’s pure boloney! Any developed country in the world requires to know who you are and why you’re coming into their country before allowing you in. Try traveling ANYWHERE in the world and going through Customs, and you’ll find that to be the case. It’s not racial profiling to be certain you’re not letting criminals come in. This race crap and political correctness is getting totally out of hand!!! I’d be happy to prove who I am and what business I have coming in if I had nothing to hide. It’s not illegal search and seizure at border points. It’s simply protocol for entering a country.

          • Didi Smith

            There was never an issue w/showing your papers at the border. It was about being stopped on the street, pulled over while driving, etc.
            ps. you guys stand a much better chance in getting your message across if you left out all the name calling.

          • ejeff

            Well, I live in AZ and that isn’t a correct understanding of the original bill. Tucson is 74 minutes from the Mexican border, what nationality do you think crosses this southern border more often, Mexicans or Chinese? The bill permitted asking about immigration status if there is a suspicion of illegal presence in the US. Racial profiling claims were the means by which the progressives attacked this bill, and by which a progressive left judge gutted the bill. When I travel in Mexico, I must have my crossing “papers” in my possession and be ready to show them when asked. Not because I am white, but because I am just visiting and Mexico is not my home- I am a guest.

          • Susan

            Actually, the law was based on the already existing, and STILL existing, federal law regarding aliens. MOST of it was upheld.

            And asking someone who shows little to no grasp of the language, laws, or norms to “show their papers” is NOT racial profiling. It’s common sense.

          The border “fence” was a condition of the amnesty that was granted during the Reagan Administration. Every president since then has failed us in that regard. All of Congress has failed in the enforcement of that provision also. Throw them all into jail where they belong and throw away the keys. Not only should the cities face revocation of Federal law enforcement grants, they should have ALL federal funding cut off.

    Democrats will always favor illegals over Americans. After all, they dont want to anger their voting base!

    Seriously, anyone who votes democrat is voting for the party of “paternal racism.” Their entire party relies on this false narrative that black people are victims and the (white) democrats are the only people who can help. Meanwhile they never help minorities actually advance, they just give handouts and racist rhetoric to keep minorities voting democrat, voting against their interest. Then a guy like Dr Carson or Gen Powell comes along and merely by existing, destroys their racist rhetoric.

      Democrats are keeping blacks on the plantation, just like they did during slavery days.

        These are the scores needed to enter elite universities. Asians 1460, whites 1320, hispanic 1190, black 1010. Guess which of those groups is most dependent on government-run, democRat dominated, and union infested public schools? When democRats ask for more of your tax dollars and your freedom for the good of the “poor minority”, you should say “Heck No!”. We’re literally better off taking public school funds and sending kids to private school.

  • Jerry

    This is good that the congress may start listening to the people but it is still far short of what needs to be done about the illegal aliens in this country. Stick with Trump and make the representatives in Washington do the correct thing and make all illegals return to their countries and apply for visas and enter this country legally.

    • MyNameJeff

      Yup I agree!! And any non native illegals as well!

  • Jerry

    This is good that our representatives are listening finally. But it is far short of what needs to be done. All illegals need to be sent home and apply for a visa and enter this country legally.

  • rick

    I am no big fan on extorting anyone into compliance. and forcing one to comply under threat of financial deprivation is also a form of extortion. and per the constitution, Congress made the federal law which was not followed; long before Obama’s executive amnesty orders came along. Which since congress did not pass his amnesty orders, those orders in them-self conflict with the constitution. as there was no clause after it said Congress shall pass immigration laws, that said OR a tyrant president shall pass new ones as it suits him.

    So the leaders who refuse to enforce long time federal laws on immigration and deportation, are in violation of a legit federal law. and should be handled as one who violates the law. in short they are criminals. had they refused to enforce Obama’s executive orders on immigration, OR if the law in question conflicted with the constitution, they would have their behinds covered. Obama is not Congress and his executive orders are not legit law supported by the constitution. That’s Common sense!!! under a far less politically correct government, they would already have been removed form their positions and awaiting their day in court.

    Or maybe my perception is off on things because i lack being politically correct and have not drank my share of kool aid yet.

  • L BC

    If it were HIS daughter, would it be enough to stop funding sanctuary cities? I have never read any concern from him about victims of illegals, but only concern about IDs asked for by law enforcement on the border which he calls racial profiling and judges placing law enforcement under the supervision of special interest groups and fining each asking $350,000? Since we learned some areas of border appear to be wide open to cartel, do you suppose they are the ones getting the $350,000 awards?

  • Codgewife2

    Nancy needs to be put out to pasture, the sooner the better. These politicians do not care about millions of illiterate illegal aliens running around our country as they are nice and comfy in their gated communities that keep them out…and the voter is so damn stupid they keep voting for the same pos’s everytime. Wise up folks, if this country is going to survive the lifestyle we like called “freedom” it may be a good idea to give Trump a try. To the black community I ask are you any better off in the 6 years since Obama has been potus, mostly no I bet you will say. Has he or any d for that matter ever come to your area and tried to help you make things better? Pay attention to this as if they manage to pass this amnesty your chances of ever getting a decent job will be gone for good. Donald is telling it like it is.

  • Dave M

    If Obama vetoes this and says that the sanctuary cities should still get the money then lets go back to all the things where the federal government has denied or threatened to deny money to the cities and states if they did not tow the line and do as the federal government said they have to do in order to get money from the federal government. The school lunch programs come to mind for not wanting to follow the lunch guidelines put out by Michelle, a NON-elected person. If the cities should continue to get the money then the schools should continue to get the money even if they do not comply with the dictates of Obama.

    • Susan

      The federal government collects basically NONE of its operating money itself. It is nearly WHOLLY dependent on the states’ sending their collections to the feds for their operating money, and the states then get back from the feds.

      The easiest thing to do is just refuse to send the money to the feds to begin with, and withhold from those cities that don’t want to play nice.

      • Dave M

        Good idea, nullification of federal taxes by the states. It would not stop the income tax but a lot of others would definitely be stopped. Only problem is that we have far too many ‘big government’ types in charge of the state houses who would not want to do it. I think I would rather see the article five convention become a reality and slam DC with some major changes to policy and a stronger constitution.

The only thing he wants to do to supposedly make thing “safer” for the People is to grab our guns, taking our means of protecting ourselves away from us. And OF COURSE he and the Democratic Party are furious about this bill!! It could mean they won’t get as many votes in 2016. Talk about a political focus!! They have a lot of room to talk about the Hillary investigation being a political issue.
