While Jimmy James was making his usual rounds as a garbage man in suburban Colorado, he saw an unused gift card land in a heap of used gift wrap on Christmas morning. After noticing that the card looked unused, James handed it off to his coworker to check the balance, and see if there was any money left.

“I had to stay on the back throwing trash and we kept working. I had him call it and check it and he told me what was on it,” said Jimmy.

“There was $50, so I had him put it in my wallet for me and then when we got off work that day I went by Jason’s house.”

When he returned to the home of Jason Edwards later that day with the gift card, the Edwards family was in disbelief, thinking they had lost their gift card, and shocked that James would come out on his own time to help them.

“It was kind of a shocker to me for sure. I called my wife and told her, you’re never going to believe this guy, he just returned this card. It’s not a lot of money it’s just basically a simple principal that someone would take their time out to do something like that. It’s pretty cool,” Jason said.

While Jimmy was being interviewed for a story on his good deed, the Edwards family decided to return the favor, in the form of an envelope with $75 cash.

“They don’t know how much that helps. I don’t even know what to say. Christmas time, you know, you’re lucky to get a $10 tip, let alone, wow man, I’m touched,” James said.

Feds Say 1,500 Immigrant Children Missing, They’re Not Responsible

Two first ladies are weighing in on the separation of immigrant children and parents at the United States' border with Mexico.

>> Five undocumented immigrants dead after chase with Border Patrol, officials say

Former first lady Laura Bush criticized the Trump administration's "zero tolerance" policy on illegal immigration as "cruel" in a Washington Post op-ed Sunday.

>> Read the piece here

"I live in a border state," Bush wrote. "I appreciate the need to enforce and protect our international boundaries, but this zero-tolerance policy is cruel. It is immoral. And it breaks my heart."

According to The Associated Press, the policy, which started last month, "sought to maximize criminal prosecutions of people caught trying to enter the U.S. illegally," leading to more adults in jail, separated from their children.

"Our government should not be in the business of warehousing children in converted box stores or making plans to place them in tent cities in the desert outside of El Paso," Bush continued. "These images are eerily reminiscent of the Japanese American internment camps of World War II, now considered to have been one of the most shameful episodes in U.S. history."

She added: "In 2018, can we not as a nation find a kinder, more compassionate and more moral answer to this current crisis? I, for one, believe we can."

First lady Melania Trump also shared her thoughts on the issue Sunday.

"Mrs. Trump hates to see children separated from their families and hopes both sides of the aisle can finally come together to achieve successful immigration reform," said her spokeswoman, Stephanie Grisham, according to CNN. "She believes we need to be a country that follows all laws, but also a country that governs with heart."

Since 1789, eight U.S. presidents have either died or been killed while in office. One has resigned. 

On the death of the eight men and the resignation of the other, their vice presidents stepped into the role of president, following the requirement laid out in the Constitution for an orderly change of leadership.

But what would happen if the president and the vice president were simultaneously unable to carry out their duties? Who would step in to be president?

The Presidential Succession Act of 1947 outlines the order of succession to the presidency with a list that includes congressional members and those serving in the president’s cabinet. Congress is authorized to enact legislation concerning the order of succession under Article II, Section 1, Clause 6 of the U.S. Constitution. The Twentieth Amendment, adopted in 1933, and the Twenty-fifth Amendment, adopted in 1967, also address who will sit in the Oval Office and under what circumstances.

There have been three presidential succession acts passed in the country’s history, with the 1947 act being the latest. 

In 1792, the act declared that, the president pro tempore of the Senate would be first in line for the presidency should the president and the vice president both be incapacitated. The speaker of the House was second in line.

The 1886 act replaced the president pro tempore and speaker on the list with the members of the president’s cabinet. 

The order of succession reflected the order in which the cabinet positions had been created, with the secretary of state first in line after the vice president.

In 1947, the president pro tempore of the Senate and the speaker of the House were brought back in to the line of succession. This time, the speaker of the House was first in line behind the vice president, and the president pro tempore second in line. Members of the cabinet fill out the line as they did in the 1886 act, by when the cabinet positions were created.

Here is the line of succession for the United States government with the names of the current office holders. 
  1. Vice President: Mike Pence
  2. Speaker of the House: Paul Ryan (R-Wisconsin)
  3. President pro tempore of the Senate: Orrin Hatch (R-Utah)
  4. Secretary of State: Mike Pompeo
  5. Secretary of the Treasury: Steven Mnuchin
  6. Secretary of Defense: James Mattis
  7. U.S. Attorney General: Jeff Sessions
  8. Secretary of the Interior: Ryan Zinke
  9. Secretary of Agriculture: Sonny Perdue
  10. Secretary of Commerce: Wilbur Ross
  11. Secretary of Labor: R. Alexander Acosta
  12. Secretary of Health and Human Services: Alex Azar
  13. Secretary of Housing and Urban Development: Ben Carson
  14. Secretary of Transportation: Elaine L. Chao – Chao would not be able to assume the presidency because she was not born in the United States
  15. Secretary of Energy: Rick Perry
  16. Secretary of Education: Betsy DeVos
  17. Secretary of Veterans Affairs: Robert Wilkie – Wilkie was nominated by Trump to be the next Secretary of Veterans Affairs; he has not yet been confirmed for that position
  18. Secretary of Homeland Security: Kirstjen Nielsen
