President-elect Donald Trump’s choice of David Friedman as ambassador to Israel drew some local condemnation yesterday, when United States Congressman Alan Lowenthal slammed the president-elect’s pick on Facebook, calling it a move that would “damage” US credibility in trying to bring peace to the region.
After an emotional night of testimony from the community and the Jose Alvarez family, the Long Beach City Council voted last night in support of a resolution pushing for humanitarian parole from the United States Department of Homeland Security for the Long Beach man deported earlier this year after a routine traffic stop.
He did it. After a long, tumultuous campaign, Donald Trump officially won the 2016 race for US President, clinching more than the necessary 270 electoral votes to win, while Hillary Clinton secured the popular vote. The 60 to 70 supporters gathered at the 49Rs Tavern at Pacific Coast Highway and Bellflower Boulevard were ecstatic.
