Republicans Pass 'Donald Trump Act' As Obama Vows Veto

The fight over immigration reform heats up D.C.

"Donald Trump is trying to get to the White House, but it looks like he’s 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.

President Obama has vowed to veto the bill.

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