The Donald Trump Act - Enforce the Law for Sanctuary Cities Act

WASHINGTON (ABC News) - Donald Trump may be thousands of miles from Washington on the Texas-Mexico border, but on Capitol Hill he's center stage in the fight over illegal immigration.

"Donald Trump is trying to get to the White House, but it looks like hes already infiltrated Congress," said Rep. Tony Cardenas, D-Calif., during debate on the House floor. "This bill on the floor of this House today has Donald Trump written all over it."

The bill, which is formally called the "Enforce the Law for Sanctuary Cities Act," would block states and cities from receiving federal law enforcement funding if they have so-called sanctuary city practices in place, blocking the enforcement of certain federal immigration laws. It passed today in the House with overwhelming Republican support in a 241-179 vote, with only six Democrats joining the majority.

Democrats have pejoratively labeled the legislation The Donald Trump Act, tying the proposal to the volatile presidential candidate and his controversial remarks about Mexican immigrants.

President Obama has vowed to veto the bill.

But supporters of the measure say that the sanctuary city policy -- where local law enforcement chooses not to alert federal immigration officials about illegal immigrants to prevent their deportation -- is to blame for the death of Kate Steinle, allegedly at the hands of an illegal immigrant and repeat felon who knew he wouldnt be deported in San Francisco.

We had a horrible tragedy that was preventable, said House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio. Cities do not have the right to ignore federal laws that require them to incarcerate people who commit serious felonies."

Democrats, who have called for a review of immigration law enforcement, say the Republican bill is too restrictive and would undermine the relationship between law enforcement and immigrant communities.

"The man who killed Kathryn Steinle should be punished to the full extent of the law," said Rep. Xavier Becerra, D-California, the chairman of the House Democratic Caucus, before the vote.

"Don't take the Donald Trump bait," he added. "Don't punish others for the crimes of the few."

Tripe.. Sanctuary cities are just circumventing laws they don't agree with - no different that if a city decided it was going to not allow gay marriage.

Maybe he'll hire you to be his campaign manager. I think you'd be a good fit.

I am waiting for the debates before making my commitments.

He has shaken up the Republican party and made many of the Republicans who are on the fence about issues to finally get off and state their opinion.

He can either unify or divide the GOP, He has made the race for President very interesting

Its no different than 21 drinking law. If you don't enforce Federal law, you don't get Federal money.

We have weed in Washington...last time I looked we were still in the Union and still on the dole

The content available on a site dedicated to bringing folks to America should not be promoting racial discord, euro-supremacy, discrimination based on religion , exclusion of groups from immigration based on where they were born, disenfranchisement of voters rights based on how they might vote.
