A new poll shows that the vast majority of Republican voters want to end illegal immigration.
According to the Pew Research Center’s latest survey, 65 percent of GOP voters said that the Republican Party should be prioritizing ending illegal immigration and reducing the illegal immigrant population residing in the U.S.
The arguments illegal immigration are diverse. Some have contended that the U.S.’s current open border status quo has allowed illegal immigrants to stagnate American wages, while benefiting the highest income earners. Other closed border proponents look at Europe’s current migration crisis and see continued mass migration as a major threat to social cohesion in America should the country continue allowing immigrants in by the millions.
President Donald Trump campaigned on immigration reform, but was unable to pass any meaningful measures despite having Republicans in control of both chambers of Congress from 2016 to 2018.
Because of this, several political commentators such as Lou Dobbs and Michelle Malkin have criticized Trump and the Republican party for not following through with their campaign promises to curb mass migration.
Nationally, there are estimates ranging from 11 to 22 million illegal aliens living in America. According to research from the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), once illegal immigrants settle down in the U.S., the vast majority of these immigrants are never deported.
The Pew Research survey reveals Republican voters, by a majority, view illegal immigration as a burden to their quality of life that will impact future generations.
Nationwide, there are roughly 11 to 22 million illegal aliens living in the country. As Department of Homeland Security (DHS) data has revealed, once illegal aliens resettle in the U.S., the overwhelming majority are never deported.
Ever since former President H.W. Bush enacted Immigration Act of 1990, immigration to the U.S. has increased substantially. Should this trend continue, there will be 69 million foreign-born individuals living in the U.S by 2060.
For immigration reform advocates, not all has been doom and gloom as Trump was able to secure $1 billion in wall funding from the Pentagon earlier this week.
Nevertheless, there is still considerable work to be done on the immigration front.

President Trump: Best Pro-Life President Ever?
Karen Cross, the Political Director for National Right to Life, praised President Donald Trump for his pro-life efforts during his administration.
At Life News, she wrote “President Donald J. Trump and his Administration have established more pro-life policies than any other president in history.
The National Right to Life Committee endorsed president Trump’s re-election bid on July 4, 2019.
That day, Carol Tobias, the president of National Right to Life, said:
“As our nation celebrates Independence Day, we are proud to endorse the only presidential candidate who stands for the unalienable right to life. From his first day in office, President Trump and his Administration have been dedicated to advancing policies that protect the fundamental right to life for the unborn, the elderly, and the medically dependent and disabled.”
One of the Trump administration’s first actions as president was to restore the Mexico City Policy, which bars tax funds from going to organizations that carry out abortions or lobby to bring pro-abortion laws to host countries. Trump followed up by expanding this policy to keep $9 billion in foreign aid from being used to bankroll the global abortion industry.
The Trump Administration also slashed funding to the United Nations Population Fund due to that agency’s involvement with China’s forced abortion program.
President Trump originally pledged “to veto any legislation that weakens current pro-life federal policies and laws, or that encourages the destruction of innocent human life at any state.”
According to Cross, President Trump vowed to sign the following pro-life legislative items:
- The Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act;
- The Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act; and
- The No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act.
The National Right to Life Political Director emphasized the importance of the 2020 elections. She stated that this election “will determine who appoints justices to the U.S. Supreme Court and numerous federal judges to lower courts.”
Having Republican control of the Senate will allow Trump to continue to nominate conservative judges.
So far, Trump has nominated 192 federal judges, which include U.S. Supreme Court Justices Brett Kavanaugh and Neil Gorsuch, who were ultimately confirmed by the U.S. Senate.
Having Nancy Pelosi out of the picture as House Speaker will allow for pro-life legislation to actually move out of the House.
All in all, pro-lifers’ best bet for any type of policy change will be for Republicans to gain control of all three branches of government.
