HUGE POLL: Trump’s Approval Climbs 10 Points Among Hispanics After Zero Tolerance Border Policy

Hispanics love LEGAL immigration

Published

Recent weeks have brought about heated debate on immigration, specifically relating to child separations at the border. One group that was listening are Hispanic Americans, who in response caused Trump’s approval rating to climb 10 points among their demographic. The poll, conducted by Harvard CAPS/Harris show Trump’s overall approval climbing to 47 percents, largely due to increased support among Hispanics.

While conventional wisdom might make it seem as though heightened border security would be unpopular among Hispanic communities, the numbers show otherwise. Polling conducted by Zogby Analytics in November of 2016 shows that 58.5 percent of Hispanics say they “support Donald Trump’s immigration policies,” while 32.9 percent said they “support Hillary Clinton’s immigration policies.”

The polling showed that while Trump’s immigration policy is popular among Hispanics, very few polled said they liked him as a person. This could perhaps be shifting, and have to do with his increased polling among Hispanics.

While the shift among Hispanic support likely could have to do with his hard-line take on immigration in recent weeks, it is hard to be sure. It could also have to do with the stronger economy, or President Trump’s recent summit with North Korean Leader Kim Jong Un.

Customs and Border Patrol Set to Deploy Elite Units to Sanctuary Cities to Assist ICE

CBP is serious about enforcing immigration law, even in cities that intend to flout it.

Published

Customs and Border Patrol is preparing to redeploy some of the agency’s highly trained tactical personnel throughout the nation’s “sanctuary cities” in order to support Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

The New York Times reported on the development Friday, that signals the Department of Homeland Security(which presides over both entities) is dead serious about national immigration enforcement, even in scofflaw municipalities that have sought to neuter it.

According to the report, more than 100 of CBP’s agents are being deployed throughout the nation to assist in ICE operations. It’s possible the agents could be tasked with apprehending illegal alien fugitives who are released onto the streets from local jail custody. They’ve been described as members of a unit known as BORTAC, an unit of personnel analogous to CBP’s SWAT team.

It’s common for sanctuary city jurisdictions to release individuals who are often violent criminals from custody, ignoring ICE detainer requests that the fugitives be instead handed over to face federal charges for immigration violations.

Sanctuary cities often create unnecessary risks to public safety by forcing ICE to arrest dangerous criminals off of the streets, when they could’ve been simply handed over from municipal jail systems to the federal agency. Eric Garcetti, the mayor of one of America’s biggest cities, openly admits that Los Angeles simply does not participate in immigration enforcement.

If scofflaw cities such as Philadelphia and Los Angeles are truly determined to undermine immigration law enforcement, then so be it. Attorney General Bill Barr has followed the lead of his predecessor, Jeff Sessions, in instituting new measures to punish the open borders cities, restricting them from federal law enforcement programs.

Conservatives shouldn’t be afraid of advocating for a strong federal government that will step in to perform the law enforcement duties sanctuary cities are cowering away from.
