President Trump took to Twitter Sunday to blast the current immigration policies as “DUMBEST & WORST” in the world. He called out Congress for not acting to fix the current policies that leaves citizens vulnerable, like the crummy ‘catch and release’ program. Trump urged voters to vote Republican in the Midterms and join in efforts of securing American borders.
That wasn’t the President’s only message. In a continued Tweet Trump warned Democrats that he is willing to ‘shut down’ the government if they continue to block efforts to secure the borders. Trump purposed moving away from the lottery citizenship program and over to a system that would grant citizenship based on merit. Take a look.
“Please understand, there are consequences when people cross our Border illegally, whether they have children or not – and many are just using children for their own sinister purposes. Congress must act on fixing the DUMBEST & WORST immigration laws anywhere in the world! Vote “R””, The President Tweeted.
“I would be willing to “shut down” government if the Democrats do not give us the votes for Border Security, which includes the Wall! Must get rid of Lottery, Catch & Release etc. and finally go to system of Immigration based on MERIT! We need great people coming into our Country!” – Trump added.
Midterm voters have repeatedly said they want less immigration to the U.S. A majority of swing voters and white voters in battleground districts say immigration from Central America and Mexico has made life in America “worse.” More than four-in-nine black Americans in swing districts say the same of immigration.
Meanwhile, nearly two-in-three likely American voters say they want to see legal immigration to the U.S. reduced, as Breitbart News noted. A most recent poll found that a majority of conservatives say they generally oppose all immigration to the U.S.
Most recent polling finds that a majority of white, black, and Hispanic Americans support Trump’s agenda of increased immigration enforcement with stricter measures.
Despite polling numbers, Democrats continue to push their ‘open borders’ and ‘abolish ICE’ narrative. Add that to their recent adoption of socialism and they may have killed their chances in the Midterms. With no one to blame but themselves.
