States like California and Texas stood out among Democrats who had favorable views about socialism.

54 percent of California Democrats have favorable views of socialism, while 57 percent of Texas Democrats have favorable views of socialism.

Interestingly, both states have large immigration populations.

According to Pew Research, California has nearly 11 million foreign residents (27.2% of the population) and Texas has nearly 5 million foreign residents (16.9 percent of the population).

On the other hand, North Carolina and Tennessee Democrats were not as receptive towards socialism.

Only 48 percent of North Carolina voters and 47 percent of Tennessee voters view socialism favorably.

These two states only have immigration populations of 786,374 immigrants (7.7 percent of the population) and 331,868 immigrants (5 percent of the population), respectively.

Demographic shift is one of the most powerful issues in American politics.

For example, a recent Pew Research poll found that Hispanic voters have solidly leftist views on foundational political issues.

The majority of Hispanic voters (71%) believe the government should be more involved to solve problems,

Additionally, Hispanic voters are generally in favor of the U.S. government playing a stronger role in the healthcare sector. About seven-in-ten (71%) say it is the federal government’s responsibility to ensure health care coverage for all of Americans.

As far as gun ownership is concerned, seven-in-ten Hispanic voters (68%) believe gun control laws should be strengthened.

These results are consistent with post-1965 Immigration Act voting trends among migrants during the last 50 years.

The Republican Party will have to come to grip with these realities.

Migration has historically has come in waves.

There are either legislative or natural pauses in immigration and the U.S. is long overdue for a moratorium on mass migration. The good news is that the U.S. can look to its history for a previous example of immigration restriction in the Immigration Act of 1924.

We can only hope that the GOP dusts off its history books and take a page from this act.

U.S. Law Enforcement Bust 27 People Connected to Mexican Sinaloa Cartel

Published

on

Over two dozen people were arrested on drug charges in connection to a Mexican cartel smuggling cocaine into the U.S. Following a two-year investigation, 27 people were arrested through Operation Tripwire, an investigation effort U.S. officials have been working on featuring members of the Sinaloa Cartel.

The trafficking network went from Los Angeles, California to Tucson, Arizona and Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania where cocaine originating from Mexico was smuggled stateside. The United States Attorney for the Western District of Pennsylvania, Scott Brady declared “this is a large organization that was trafficking hundreds of kilograms of cocaine throughout the country and has direct ties to the Sinaloa cartel in Mexico.”

U.S. authorities recounted that the investigations started after an agent in Pittsburgh was able to identify an address that received large quantities of suspicious-looking packages coming from California. Since then, agents started to do investigation on other members of the network across the U.S.

Across the span of seven months, authorities were able to intercept U.S. calls made by some of the alleged traffickers with Sinaloa carte leaders in Mexico. On September 9, 2020, 27 were arrested in Arizona, California, and Pennsylvania.

According to American authorities, $1.3 million in cash and over 140 kilograms of cocaine were seized. The aforementioned people arrested are now facing a prison sentence of between 10 years and life in prison.

The border situation is no joke. Prior administrations have largely neglected the issue and have allowed for unprecedented levels of illegal immigration and drug trafficking to cross the U.S. border.

In a prior instance, BLP reported on how Mexico is a failed state that cannot maintain public order and is largely being pushed around by cartels. Due to its proximity to the U.S., Mexico’s problems will likely spillover stateside.

This is why border security is crucial. Thankfully, the U.S. has a president in Donald Trump that gets the memo. He’ll still need help from Congress, however,

That’s why it’s crucial that America First Republicans have strong showings at all branches of government in 2020.
