    Democrats Advised Not to Speak About Unpopular Open Borders Policies: ‘It Is Very Difficult to Win on Immigration’

    Democrats running for re-election in the 2018 midterms are being advised to not speak about the issue of immigration as consultants admit the zero-enforcement, open borders positions of the Democrat Party are unpopular with swing voters.

    In a memo obtained by the New York Times, left-wing consultants with the Center for American Progress and the think tank, Third Way, advised Democrats running for election to spend “as little time as possible” talking about the immigration issue facing the nation, where more than 1.5 million immigrants are admitted to the country every year.

    The New York Times reported:

    “Sanctuary attacks pack a punch,” says a four-page memorandum, prepared by the liberal Center for American Progress and the centrist think tank Third Way, that has been shared at about a dozen briefings for Democrats in recent weeks. The New York Times obtained a copy of the memo, whose findings are based on interviews and surveys conducted over the summer. [Emphasis added]



    Democrats, the strategists who prepared the memo advised, could neutralize the attacks if they responded head-on. But they should spend “as little time as possible” talking about immigration itself, and instead pivot to more fruitful issues for Democrats like health care and taxation. [Emphasis added]



    “It is very difficult to win on immigration with vulnerable voters in the states Trump carried in 2016,” the strategy memo said, arguing that “even the most draconian of Republican policies,” such as family separation and threats to deport the Dreamers — undocumented immigrants who were brought to the United States as children — failed to sway most of them.
    [Emphasis added]

    As Breitbart News exclusively reported, House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) has given the GOP ammunition to run on the issue of immigration for the midterm elections, introducing legislation that fully funds President Trump’s proposed border wall on the U.S.-Mexico border.

    Meanwhile, Democrats have geared up for the 2018 midterm elections by running on a platform that would abolish the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency, which would end all immigration enforcement across the United States. Three in four swing voters oppose the Democrats’ “abolish ICE” initiative.

    How unpopular is the Democrats' plan to abolish ICE? 3-in-4 swing voters say they oppose it. Nearly 70 percent of Americans say they oppose it.

    Despite Republican efforts to run on the issue of uninfluential tax reform, Trump’s immigration reduction plan has sweeping support among not only Republican voters, but swing voters and black Americans.

    In an April Harvard/Harris Poll, nearly 2-out-3 supported reducing legal immigration levels to the U.S. In May, 52 percent of swing voters opposed allowing big businesses to import more foreign workers to compete against their fellow citizens for coveted blue-collar and white-collar jobs.

    Most specifically, 61 percent of swing voters in battleground districts who said immigration has changed their community claimed those changes are making life “worse” in America.

    A similar CBS/YouGov poll in June found that 55 percent of swing voters in battleground districts believed the border wall is a “good idea that can probably be completed” or a “good idea that should be tried, even if it can’t be completed,” as Trump wants.

    And they are 100% right.

    Latest reports are that the GOP is looking good in the Senate. US House might be tougher. I have been working with a GOP Congressional staff member here about some transportation issues---trying to steer a moderate path between the two extremes around here. If this Rep. doesn't get re-elected, in a very close race, it is going to be a LOT tougher.

    Maybe this stealth open borders agenda would be the issue to sink them on. The GOP Rep. is actually part Hispanic, so shouldn't really have that much trouble with the liberals anyway.

    You need to call in Trump for a Rally. Tell them to call in and ask for help. He'll do it. But call soon, not many days left and need time to schedule it and make security arrangements.

    Yes indeed. The whole world is trying to dump their welfare trash on the american taxpayers. Hard to justify that to the taxpayers.

    "Yeah, but they all vote democrat".
