The ‘Donald Trump Act’ Just Passed The House By A Landslide, And Obama Doesn’t Like It One Bit

The House passed a bill Thursday which would punish cities that refuse to enforce federal immigration law.

H.R. 3009 passed easily in the lower chamber 241 to 179, The Hill reported. The bill would force local law enforcement agencies to notify Immigration and Customs Enforcement if they have an illegal immigrant in custody; otherwise, certain federal law enforcement grants would be withheld.

“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, allegedly by an illegal immigrant who was deported from the U.S. multiple times and convicted of several felonies.

Hunter’s bill was voted on largely across party lines. Reps. Carlos Curbelo of Florida, Bob Dold of Illinois, Dan Donovan and Peter King of New York, and Dave Reichert of Washington were the only GOP members of Congress to vote against the measure. Six Democrats 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 House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., 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.

Meanwhile in the upper chamber, Sens. Jeff Sessions, R-Ala., and Ron Johnson, R-Wis., introduced legislation comparable Tuesday 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.

Police Just Revealed The Disturbing Banner Lafayette Shooter Once Flew- It Says A Lot…

John Russell Houser, the man implicated in Thursday’s shooting at a Louisiana movie theater, once hung a Nazi flag outside his bar. His behavior has been described as “erratic.”

Houser, 59, allegedly opened fire during a viewing of Trainwreck at The Grand theater in Lafayette, killing two and injuring several others before killing himself after spotting officers in the parking lot, CNN reported.

After his liquor license at his LaGrange, Ga., bar was revoked in 2001 for selling alcohol to minors multiple times, Houser, known at the time as Rusty Houser, had a white banner made for $120 which said “Welcome to LaGrange.” In the center of the banner was the swastika, the La Grange Daily News reported at the time. A local ordinance was written as such that the town could not make Houser remove it for at least four weeks. “The people who used it – the Nazis – they did what they damn well pleased,” Houser told the LaGrange Daily News.

Speaking to NBC News Friday, La Grange Police Chief Louis Dekmar described Houser as a man who was “erratic, angry, short-tempered.”

He was pretty frustrated with the police department and the judicial system generally, and his response was he had a Nazi flag attached to his building. If it wasn’t the size of a sheet, it was pretty close.

Western Journalism reporter Randy DeSoto detailed how Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal, a Republican, met with two teachers, Jena Meaux and Ali Martin, after the shooting:

At a press conference, Jindal said one of the teachers told him that her friend ‘literally jumped over her’ and ‘saved her life.” If her friend hadn’t done so, she believes ‘that bullet…would have hit her in the head.” Instead, she was struck in the leg.

‘Now both teachers ended up getting shot, but that second one, the one whose life was saved, even though she was shot, she had the presence of mind to pull the fire alarm to help save other lives,’ Jindal added.

Woman Shoots Man Who Attacked Her. When Police Open His Trunk, They Are Horrified By What They Find.

Image for representational purposes only.

Authorities say a West Virginia woman was attacked by an armed man she invited to her home after being solicited online for escort services. According to a KPTV report, 45-year-old Neal Falls attempted to strangle the unidentified victim upon arriving at a her Charleston residence.

Though her attacker allegedly aimed his gun at her torso and told her to decide whether she would live or die, the woman said she was able to fight through the fear and overpower the man.

“I fought men my whole life,” she said in a Charleston Gazette-Mail interview. “I guess I had to be ready for that guy.”

After struggling for roughly 15 minutes, she recalled grabbing a rake, which forced her attacker to put down his gun in an effort to disarm her.

“I grabbed the gun and just shot it behind me,” she said. “I hit him.”’

The shot turned out to be fatal, though police interest in the deceased suspect has never been higher. When investigators searched his vehicle’s trunk, they found a collection of weapons and tools suggesting this was not his first violent crime.

Authorities in Ohio are reportedly looking into Falls’ possible involvement in the disappearance or death of six women in a string of crimes potentially motivated by prostitution. The shooter told police Falls’ demeanor was confident, which she believed was a sign he had committed similar acts before.

The shooting is being investigated as an act of self-defense, and the shooter has been celebrated as a local hero.

“I don’t see myself as anybody special, or a hero,” she concluded, explaining she simply took advantage of the opportunity to stop her attacker.

WATCH: An Alligator Snatched Up Her Dog…How She Saved Her Is INCREDIBLE

A Florida woman rescued her dog from the grips of an alligator.

Lori Beiswenger wrestled a 7.5-foot alligator after it dragged her dog Hope into a pond.

“I wasn’t thinking,” Beiswenger said. “It was the dumbest, bravest thing I’ve ever done, but I wasn’t gonna let [Hope] go.”

She explains: “I just said, ‘God, no, this can’t be happening, this can’t be happening.’”

Beiswenger, who owns Point O’ Woods Golf Course, grabbed the gator’s tail and wouldn’t let go until the alligator released her dog.

Jody Daniels, a volunteer at the golf course, lifted Hope’s body out of the water with a shovel and brought her up onto the ground. Beiswenger’s dog of nine years suffered several injuries, including a severed artery.

This was not Hope’s first run-in with death. Hope was adopted before she was about to be put down, and was also hit by a car.

Following the alligator incident, Hope has had surgery and is recovering well. “I love this dog, there was nothing, I wasn’t going to lose her,” Beiswenger said.

Watch: ‘Duck Dynasty’ Says THIS Trump Move Was ‘One Of The Best Things I’ve Ever Seen In My Life’

Even though he endorsed another candidate, Duck Dynasty’s Willie Robertson commended Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump for some of his recent actions.

The panel on Fox and Friends asked Robertson what he thought about his fellow Louisianan, Republican Gov. Bobby Jindal, who is currently seeking the GOP presidential nomination. “Great guy, Christian man, just a smart guy. And always there,” Robertson said. “I think we saw that through everything the state has been through, you know, Bobby shows up, he’s there and he wants to be with the people and hug their necks and hold their hands, and it didn’t surprise me at all to see that he was down in Lafayette.”

Robertson was referring to a shooting at a movie theater in Lafayette, La., Thursday, which left two dead and 11 more injured. Jindal was in the city hours after the incident occurred. Co-host Elisabeth Hasselbeck asked Robertson if he endorsed Jindal, who is currently lagging in the polls, for president. “I do, yeah, we talk a lot. I like what he stands for, where he’s at. I’ll be with him.” Robertson’s brother and sister-in-law, Jep and Jessica Robertson, endorsed Jindal last month.

Steve Doocy later asked Robertson if he had any thoughts on Trump and the headlines surrounding him. “It’s like the wild, wild west out there,” Robertson quipped. “I’m enjoying it. I’m enjoying watching all the soundbites and how they’re getting after each other. I think Trump’s laying it out there. I think that’s definitely appealing to a lot of people.”

Robertson noted he disagreed with Trump’s remarks about Sen. John McCain’s service record. “But some of the other stuff he’s saying makes sense,” Robertson said. The Duck Commander CEO also lauded Trump for publicly releasing the personal cell phone number of fellow GOP presidential candidate Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C. “When [Trump] dropped the cell phone number, that was the best thing I had seen in my life,” Robertson said.

“That’s happened to me, so I was glad somebody else got it,” he continued. “But I think that’s what he’s doing, he’s calling out the, perhaps, the hypocrisy in some of this. Where some people are your friends one minute and then they’re not, so I like that part about where he said, ‘I thought you liked me last year, and now you don’t like me?’”
