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.
In continuing its partnership with City Fabrick to try and stimulate higher rates of voter turnouts in areas that have historically seen few people participate, the Long Beach City Clerk’s office accepted a portion of a grant last night that will help provide for additional coverage during the November elections.
