On July 3, 2020, a group of Immigration Patriots gathered in Washington, D.C. to celebrate an event— Salute to America and Prayer Vigil — at the Freedom Plaza.
The event was dedicated to president Donald Trump, who won on an America First immigration platform, and individuals who were murdered by illegal aliens.
Several immigration patriot groups such as the Remembrance Project were in attendance.
BLP reached out to Remembrance Project members for their thoughts on the event.
Diane Atkins, New York coordinator for The Remembrance Project, commented:
We gathered to pray for President Trump and our nation and hold a vigil for Americans killed by illegal aliens. We wanted to show President Trump that we support his America First agenda and stand for law and order. And most importantly as Christians, we must pray and fight against the evil scourge sweeping over our nation that seeks to destroy us all.
Fredy Burgos Jr., The Remembrance Project’s Virginia coordinator, added:
As a naturalized citizen my parents sacrificed family and fortune to move to the United States, legally. It would be a tragedy and an insult to millions of legal residents and The Remembrance Project’s angel families if our ‘law and order’ president follows bad advice and decides to place illegal aliens above the law and goes along with amnesty. No one is above the law. By the way, there have been seven (7) amnesties since 1986, along with a promise for a border wall; and to this day, no Wall for security! All we got was more illegal aliens who snub their noses to us. My family came here legally. There is a big front door. Use it, or leave! I’m for a lawful nation not a lawless nation. I”m for America First, not America last.
12 police officers were present to keep order at the event.
Immigration is arguably the hottest issue going into the 2020 elections.
The political implications regarding the voting patterns of immigrants is profound.
President Trump must promote immigration hawks running for Congress and make sure that he gets solid majorities in Congress.
In doing so, he can move his agenda forward without a problem.
Fox News Ratings Crater, Trailing CNN and MSNBC for First Time in 21 Years
A brutal collapse over the past two-and-a-half months.
Recent data from Nielsen shows that Fox News finished behind both CNN and MSNBC in ratings to open the month of January.
This is the first time in twenty-one years that that has happened, according to Daily Wire.
Nielsen’s ratings data shows that CNN finished number one among cable news networks with approximately 2.8 million viewers per day from January 4 through January 10, including 4.2 million in primetime.
MSNBC came in second with 2.3 million viewers per day and 3.8 million in primetime. And in third was Fox News with 1.7 million viewers per day and 3.2 million in primetime.
This is tough data for the conservative-leaning network. Over the past couple decades Fox has become accustomed to completely dominating the ratings, oftentimes receiving more viewership than CNN and MSNBC combined. Several factors contribute to the fall of Fox, including but not limited to:
- The death of Roger Ailes in 2017 and subsequent changes in network leadership
- Their disastrous Election Night coverage on November 3
- Donald Trump’s loss to Joe Biden
- An ostensible effort to distance themselves from Trump
- A real or perceived softening of their conservatism in general
- Trump’s public irritation with the network, to the point of telling people to migrate over to Newsmax and One America News Network (OANN)
Fox News has recently announced lineup changes as well. This is standard practice in the cable news industry and may not have much to do with their suffering ratings, though there’s a likely possibility that it does. Fox will be adding an hour-long opinion show in place of Martha MacCallum’s news show “The Story,” which had fallen behind both CNN and MSNBC’s 7pm timeslots after a stretch of being “comfortably ahead in ratings.” The network will also shuffle some of their daytime lineup.
As Joe Biden works through his first 100 days as president, it will be interesting to see how Fox News continues to perform, not only in comparison with CNN and MSNBC, but also with OANN and Newsmax.
