    GOP Voters: Trump, Congress Should Deal with Illegal Immigration First

    GOP Voters: Trump, Congress Should Deal with Illegal Immigration First


    November 16, 2017

    John Binder


    [


    A majority of Republican voters say there is no other issue more important than illegal immigration, telling pollsters that the problem at the U.S.-Mexico border should be addressed immediately.



    A new Rasmussen Reports poll finds that about 52 percent of GOP voters say illegal immigration should be the first issue addressed by Congress and President Trump following the midterm elections.


    A plurality of nearly 30 percent of all likely voters say illegal immigration should be first on the list of priorities for Trump and the Congress, while 66 percent of Trump’s base of support — those who say they strongly approve of the populist president — want illegal immigration addressed immediately.

    CNN exit polls from the recent midterm elections reveal that a majority of swing state voters support Trump’s nationalist immigration agenda of building a wall on the southern border, reducing legal immigration levels, and stemming the inflow of foreign guest workers to open up U.S. jobs for American citizens.

    Despite calls from the Trump base to focus on immigration, the president and the Republican-controlled Congress have recently turned their sights on a prison reform agenda that is favored by the billionaire GOP mega-donor Koch brothers, the George Soros-funded ACLU, and both political establishments.



    The push for prison reform instead of a legislative agenda on Trump’s immigration platform comes as a caravan of 7,000 to 10,000 Central Americans heads to the U.S.-Mexico border. Hundreds from the caravan have already begun scaling the border fence in southern California, as captured in video footage.




    Should illegal and legal immigration levels continue, the U.S. population will hit an unprecedented 404 million residents by 2060. The current legal immigration system would be responsible for importing 75 million new immigrants in the next four decades.



    Every year the U.S. admits more than 1.5 million foreign nationals, with the vast majority deriving from family-based chain migration, whereby newly naturalized citizens can bring an unlimited number of foreign relatives to the U.S. In 2016, the legal and illegal immigrant population reached a record high of 44 million. By 2023, the Center for Immigration Studies estimates that the legal and illegal immigrant population of the U.S. will make up nearly 15 percent of the entire U.S. population.

    Exclusive–Conservative Leaders Ask Trump to Oppose Prison Reform Bill: ‘It’s Prison Release’

    AFP PHOTO/Orlando SIERRA.11 Oct 2018906Conservative leaders are asking President Trump to oppose prison reform legislation, telling him to “trust” his instincts and calling the bill “prison release.”

    The Center for Urban Renewal & Education’s Star Parker, Sheriff David Clarke Jr., the Center for Security Policy’s Frank Gaffney and Clare Lopez, Conservative Review’s Daniel Horowitz, as well as 27 other leaders from prominent conservative organizations have sent a letter to Trump asking him not to support the First Step Act.

    Despite what the proponents of soft-on-crime policies like criminal leniency suggest, the data is clear and confirmed by common-sense:
    taking criminals off the streets reduces the rate of crime. [Emphasis added]

    Now, a leniency-industrial complex is urging you to support a bill that would reduce the sentences for federal drug traffickers, and allow large numbers of those same traffickers to “serve” their sentences outside prison in “home confinement.” [Emphasis added]

    Mr. President, don’t do it. Trust your instincts. [Emphasis added]



    Retired Customs and Border Protection officer Phil Haney said he wants the Congress to “first concentrate” on supporting law enforcement officials “before undertaking efforts to reform the current prison sentencing structure.”

    The biggest flaw driving this impetuous push for dismantling our criminal justice system is that there is no balance of equities between the desires or needs of convicts with the needs of victims and public safety,” Horowitz said, going on:

    At a time when the prison population is plummeting and violent crime is going back up in many parts of the country, we need to be even more careful to ensure that we don’t repeat the mistakes of the pre-Reagan era of soft-on-crime-policies. Let’s study this issue with the right balance and the most up-to-date facts and trends at our disposal. Let’s hear the input from law enforcement, prosecutors, and victims rather than just hearing from political groups and Hollywood attention-seekers.



    The prison reform legislation — promoted by White House advisers Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump — would cut the penalty for drug trafficking in half. This would allow a repeat-fentanyl trafficker with more than 400 grams of fentanyl to receive only seven years and 10 months in prison. Current law mandates that the repeat-fentanyl trafficker receive at least 20 years in prison.

    The 400 grams of fentanyl is so deadly that it is enough to kill 100,000 Americans.

    “The current criminal justice reform legislation is a formula for getting more unreformed criminals – including drug dealers and jihadists – back on the streets, threatening public safety and even the national security,” Gaffney said. “We mustn’t go there.”

    The prison reform legislation would also immediately release about 4,000 felons back into American communities, as Breitbart News has reported. These 4,000 felons would include convicts who have violent criminal and gang records and they would not have to participate in the legislation’s anti-recidivism programs.

    For heroin and fentanyl traffickers, the prison reform legislation allows them to earn early release from prison so long as they earn credits for participating in “productive activities.” This portion of the legislation allows for drug traffickers to get an early prison release by joining recreational leagues.

    Trump said on Thursday that he would support the prison reform legislation against the advice of Attorney General Jeff Sessions and the law enforcement community.

    Executives working for the billionaire GOP mega-donors, the Koch brothers — many of which have close ties to Vice President Mike Pence and former Legislative Affairs Director Marc Short — held meetings at the White House with Trump officials in May and were reportedly successful in convincing the president to back the plan, despite his “Law and Order” agenda.

    NO DACA DEAL!

    We want those work permits to expire and OUT they go...the whole family.

    Stop rewarding these criminal trespassing illegal aliens.

    No amnesty #8...no path to stay!

    DACA has education and work skills now. Send them back to fix their own damn country!

    The Supreme Court needs to end DACA.

    Take your DAPA parents and hit the road.

    They are illegal whether they came 30 years ago or 30 seconds ago.
