Chip Roy Takes AOC to School on Border Issues

Published

on

Texas Congressman Chip Roy wants to set the record straight on what’s taking place at the Southern border.

Since Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez caused a huge media uproar about the conditions of migrants at detention centers at the border, immigration quickly came back to the spotlight.

However, Congressman Roy has a different take on the situation.

In a tweet, Roy said “I’ve been to the border multiple times.”

And unlike AOC, he’s isn’t putting on “a show for the media.”

Roy has made several visits to the border, and based on his experience, he does not share the view that the detention centers are the second coming of Nazi concentration camps.

But he does understand the bigger picture—the U.S. government is failing to secure the border.

Since he was elected in 2018, Roy has been one of the fiercest proponents of border security in Congress.

He recognizes what’s going on at the border, especially the influx of criminal elements such as drug cartels.

In fact, BLP reported on Roy’s efforts to designate drug cartels as foreign terrorist organizations.

He believes such organizations should be designated as FTOs “because of their particularly violent actions and intentional strategies to affect the political system. These cartels push for an anarchic form of government which allows them to skirt laws and push their terrorist model without any legal ramifications.”

These specific factions were chosen “because of their particularly violent actions and intentional strategies to affect the political system. These cartels push for an anarchic form of government which allows them to skirt laws and push their terrorist model without any legal ramifications.”

Roy singles out AOC for her recent demagoguery on the issue.

Indeed, there is a crisis at the border, but it’s for different reasons.

It has nothing to do with “Holocaust” like treatment of refugees but rather a broken immigration system that encourages mass migration from the Third World while not providing adequate protection from the very real threats south of the border.

But this debate goes beyond border crossings. The mass migration to citizenship pipeline presents a legitimate threat to U.S. political and social institutions. Europe is already overrun with ethnic ghettoes thanks to its mass migration policies, which has sparked a populist backlash across the continent.

The U.S. could suffer a similar fate given Third World migrants’ tendency of bloc voting for leftist parties.

For that reason, immigration is the number #1 issue heading into election season.

Roy should be commended for his efforts to bring some sanity into the immigration discussion.

The time for emotional pandering is over.

POLL: Hispanics Support Big Government Across The Board

Even Hispanics Republicans are to the Left of the Average Republican

Published

on

Pew Research released some interesting statistics highlighting Latino voters’ views on national political problems based on a survey they conducted on Latino adults this past December.

Record numbers of Latinos — 32 million — will be voting in the 2020 general election. This exceeds the number of eligible black voters for the first time in history.

According to the results, the majority of Hispanic voters favor more government involvement on issues ranging from minimum wage to gun control.

62 percent of registered voters identify or lean toward the Democrat Party, whereas 34 percent connect with or lean in the direction of the Republican Party.

Several key findings stood out:

Most Hispanic voters (71%) say the government should do more to solve problems, while 27% say government is doing too many things better left to businesses and individuals.

The findings by Jens Manuel Krogstad, Mark Hugo Lopez and Abby Budiman revealed that 82 percent of Hispanics who identify with or lean Democrat “say the government should do more to solve problems, compared with 51% of those who affiliate with or lean toward the GOP.”

As far as minimum wage is concerned, the three authors found some interesting results

On the minimum wage, a large majority of Hispanic voters (79%) say they favor raising it to $15 an hour, including more than half (56%) who say they strongly favor this change. Majorities in both parties favor raising the minimum wage, though Hispanic Democrats are much more likely than Hispanic Republicans to do so (88% vs. 62%, respectively).

The same Hispanic support for big government held true for healthcare which the authors noted below:

Hispanic voters generally believe the U.S. government should play a role in providing health care to Americans. About seven-in-ten (71%) say it is the federal government’s responsibility to make sure all Americans have health care coverage, including 38% who favor a national health insurance system and 32% who prefer a mix of private and government health care coverage. Around a quarter (28%) say it is not the government’s responsibility to make sure all Americans have health care coverage, though most in this group say they prefer to keep Medicare and Medicaid.

When broken down across partisan lines, there were some key differences between Hispanics Democrats and Hispanic Republicans:

Hispanic Democrats and Republicans have different views on the role government should play in providing health coverage. About eight-in-ten Hispanic Democratic voters (84%) say it is the government’s responsibility to ensure Americans have health care, with 49% supporting a national health insurance system. Meanwhile, about half (51%) of Hispanic Republican voters say it is not the government’s responsibility to ensure universal coverage, though most in this group prefer to keep Medicare and Medicaid.

Interestingly, Hispanic Republicans were considerably to the Left of the average Republican voter on healthcare. 24 percent of Republican voters believe that the government should be responsible for guaranteeing healthcare coverage.

For gun control, there was also a noticeable Hispanic majority in favor of stricter gun laws:

“Around seven-in-ten Hispanic voters (68%) say gun laws should be stricter than they are today, while 24% say current gun laws are about right. Only 7% say gun laws should be less strict. The survey was conducted several months after a mass shooting in El Paso, Texas, involving a suspect who said he targeted Mexicans.”

Similarly, there was a sharp partisan gap on gun control among Hispanics:

Among Hispanic Democratic voters, 80% say gun laws should be stricter. Hispanic Republican voters are more evenly divided, with 44% saying gun laws should be stricter and 42% saying gun laws are about right.

In the Republican case, Hispanics Republicans are to the Left of Republican voters on gun control. Only 27 percent of Republican voters want stricter gun laws.

All things considered, continued mass migration will not only ensure eventual Democrat Party domination in the near future, but also a more leftist Republican opposition that now has a big government faction within its ranks.
