In the midst of the longest shutdown in government history, over which the mainstream press is in meltdown mode and Congressional Democrats are throwing a fit, support for the border wall, which is the cause of the shutdown, has reached an all time high among the American people.
A new ABC/Washington Post Poll shows that 42 percent of Americans support building a wall at the southern border, up from just 36 percent at this time last year. The previous record high for border wall support was 37 percent, according to polling data. Notably, support for the wall has increased 16 points among Republicans and 11 percent among independents.
Opposition for the wall has significantly decreased, too. While 54 percent of respondents still said that they oppose a wall, that number has decreased from 62 percent in 2018.
The question is, what has changed?
Likely, the mainstream press has had some effect on the American people. The corporate press constantly downplays of the very real scenario at the border, which includes thousands of illegal crossings daily, hundreds of thousands of pounds of drugs smuggled per year, cartels abusing young women as part of their fee for smuggling them into the United States, combined with thousands of horrific crimes committed annually by illegal aliens in America. The press’ pooh-poohing of these serious issues might just be making the ordinary American suspicious.
Americans are not stupid, contrary to what the elite media believes. When presented with facts and evidence, which they have been bombarded with over the course of the past few months, they are quite reasonable.

Gov. Ron DeSantis Puts Anti-E-Verify Republicans On Notice
Some Republicans want to water down the proposal.
As a battle over a strong statewide E-Verify law heats up in Tallahassee, Florida Governor Rick DeSantis is cautioning Republicans who seek to neuter the law over the ire they’ll face from conservative voters.
Florida is set to pass a E-Verify law that will prevent businesses from hiring illegal immigrants as workers. Currently in the Florida Senate committee process, big business interests are seeking to institute special exemptions for industries that commonly hire illegals.
DeSantis is pushing back hard against the effort to put free passes in the legislation for the agricultural industry. Another area of contention is over the law’s enforcement mechanism. Elements seeking to neuter the Florida E-Verify system want employers to merely promise they aren’t hiring illegals, as opposed to making them definitively prove it.
DeSantis was clear about warning Republicans who try to neuter the e-Verify proposal when speaking to the press outside of the state capital on Wednesday.

DeSantis’ warning to Republicans who tacitly support giveaways of cheap labor and non-enforcement of immigration law should be taken seriously by any legislator who considers themselves a conservative, and relies upon a conservative constituency.
Senator Tom Lee, who represents Florida’s 20th district, is cautioning that Governor DeSantis could veto the entire bill and force lawmakers to start over if they stuff it full of exemptions for scofflaw big business interests. He says that the effort to make employers merely promise to hire illegals is no different than instituting an impotent “honor system.”
The law currently will mandate that businesses in Florida verify their employees’ legal status by July of 2022.
