PEW POLL: GOP Voters Overwhelmingly Support Stopping Illegal Immigration

Republican voters support the rule of law.

Published

on

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.

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.

Tennessee’s Marsha Blackburn Calls on Ilhan Omar to Resign After Minnesota Democrat Calls to “Dismantle” U.S. “System of Oppression”

Tennessee Senator Marsha Blackburn called upon Minnesota Democrat Congresswoman Ilhan Omar to resign from office on Tuesday, hours after Omar had appeared to endorse the “dismantling” of the American “economy and political systems,” calling them a “system of oppression.”

As long as our economy and our political systems prioritize profit without considering who is profiting, who is being shutout, we will perpetuate this inequality. We cannot stop at the criminal justice system. We must begin the work to dismantle the whole system of oppression wherever we find it.

Omar had made the remarks in the context of arguing that Democratic “criminal justice reform” was insufficient to answer the demands of the Black Lives Matter movement, calling for a more dramatic and wide-ranging restructuring of American society.

Blackburn called on the Minnesota freshman Democrat to resign hours after the anti-American speech in a tweet, stating that Omar could no longer credibly follow her oath to preserve the Constitution after referring to the American system broadly as a “system of oppression.”

Omar’s grandfather Abukar Omar had served as a government official in the dictatorship of Siad Barre in Somalia, and the Omar family sought political refuge in the United States when the Barre dictatorship-known for its human rights abuses and a mass killing of minorities thought of by some as a genocide- was overthrown in a civil war.
