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.

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.

Starbucks Barista FIRED After Refusing to Wear “Pride” T-Shirt for Religious Reasons, According to Lawsuit

She is a Christian and was apparently told by her manager that she didn’t have to wear it.

A former Starbucks barista is filing an unlawful discrimination lawsuit against the coffee giant, claiming they fired her for refusing to wear a “Pride” t-shirt that violated her Christian religious convictions.

Betsy Fresse started working as a barista in December 2015. After transferring to a Glen Ridge, New Jersey, store in early 2019, managers apparently “assured” her that her Christian faith wouldn’t be an issue.

Then in June 2019, she noticed a box of Pride shirts on a desk and asked if they’d make her wear one. Her store manager said she wouldn’t have to, but two months later she found herself out of a job after being terminated by a district manager.

A notice of separation claims that Fresse was fired for violating Starbucks’ “core values.” It specifically mentions an incident where she said her colleagues “need Jesus” when given the “Pride” shirt.

Starbucks maintains that “no part of our dress code requires partners to wear any approved items that they have not personally selected” and that Fresse’s claims are “without merit,” in a comment to the New York Post.

So Starbucks denies that she was fired for not wearing the shirt, yet their notice of separation appears to claim that they fired her for something she said about Jesus. Not a good look either way.

Fresse is seeking backpay, punitive damages, money to cover the cost of an attorney, and a permanent injunction that prevents Starbucks from “failing to accommodate […] sincerely held religious beliefs.”

Starbucks has long been a major player in the world of Woke Capital. Back in February Big League Politics reported on how the British branch of Starbucks was raising money for a pro-transgender lobbying group:

The U.K. branch of Starbucks is raising money to push for the chemical castration and surgical mutilation of children.

Nathanael Blake at The Federalist reported that the multinational titan is selling special mermaid-shaped cookies to help the pro-transgender lobbying group Mermaids. Curiously, the group’s founder took her underage son to Thailand to undergo a castration procedure.

Blake correctly observed “That Starbucks is supporting this group illustrates how thoroughly radicals have conquered both the LGBT movement and corporate culture.”

He also called attention to how “In a few years the fight has shifted from government recognition of same-sex relationships as legal marriages to mastectomies, sterilization, and castration for children.”

Here’s hoping that Betsy Fresse is successful in her lawsuit.
