CBS Poll Reveals Where Americans are Split on Immigration

Published

on

We spend so much time looking at the way politicians talk about immigration or the outrageous way the media selectively covers the situation at the border, that we may have forgotten to stop and ask ourselves: what do we, the people, think about immigration?

Remember, the government works for us, and so does the media. At least…in theory. With November midterm elections looming on the horizons, however, we are reminded more than ever just how desperate both Republicans and Democrats are to keep their poll numbers high and their rhetoric attractive to voters.

Actually getting things done in Washington sometimes seems pretty far down on the list from posturing about what one wants to get done.

Over the last few weeks, the nation has been bitterly divided over the attention the media has given to the policy of separating children from their parents at the border, largely owing to the fact–let’s be real–that no one likes the idea of small children being detained separately from their parents, if detained at all.

Trump or Biden, who will win?

But the unpleasant fact remains that these aren’t just regular people, these are people who have illegally crossed the border of a sovereign nation that is enforced by a federal agency, and, no matter how many people advocate for this, we simply can’t just allow our border to become so weak that we don’t take legal action when someone is cross disregarding our laws.

Perhaps one of the reasons this issue has been so incredibly divisive is that, as a new CBS poll reveals, pretty much half of all Americans are in favor of sending families who cross the border together home.

The Daily Wire reports:

A new CBS News poll conducted on June 21-22 found that nearly half of Americans surveyed agreed that if a family crossed into the United States illegally, the entire family should be sent back to their native country.

[When] the voters were asked what should be done with families that wanted to enter the United States illegally, the rubber hit the road. 4% of respondents said to arrest the parents and keep the children in a separate detention center; 11% said to arrest the parents but keep the families together in the detention center; 21% said to release the families temporarily and require that they report for a hearing later, but a whopping 48% agreed that the entire family should be released but sent back to their native country.

This is what we often refer to as “the silent majority”. While the media use deceptive language to downplay the fact that these “migrants” are “undocumented”, almost half of Americans see what they hope we don’t: a very simple solution is to keep the families together–on the other side of the border.

What the left doesn’t consider is that just because a person, or even a large group of people, is suffering, doesn’t mean that we can suspend our laws to accommodate them. If we did that, it would (further) expose us to crime and lawlessness that wouldn’t benefit anyone, especially those crossing the border.

It really shouldn’t be that difficult to enforce the law and keep families together, should it?

Save conservative media!

Democrat Senator Refuses to Condemn Antifa, Then Abruptly Storms Out of Hearing (Watch)

Ooooo, she got ’em good!!

There are a number of rotten apples in both the lower and upper chamber. The vast majority of them will vote for Joe Biden in November. Hawaii’s Mazie Hirono is one of the worst. When asked by Senator Ted Cruz to denounce the wildly anti-American group, “Antifa,” Mazie refused. She even took things a step further and walked out of the hearing. Yes, she literally took her ball and walked away so nobody else could play. And that’s what libs do best. From Fox News: Tensions flared at a Senate hearing on Antifa when a top Democrat walked out of the room declaring she couldn’t sit through Sen. Ted Cruz’s rhetorical speeches any longer. The dustup occurred when Cruz, R-Texas, blasted Democrats for not condemning Antifa more directly for the violence and destruction that has taken hold in certain U.S. cities in the wake of George Floyd’s death in Minneapolis.

And she likely won’t face any push back, whatsoever. VIDEO: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LHG_u-p15CQ&feature=emb_title Even when Congressional liberals let it slip that impeaching President Trump is all about preventing him from winning re-election, the media doesn’t care. Is that an issue? Sure. But at the end of the day, the public isn’t stupid. They can see that Dems have cheapened the impeachment process for political gain – and it should come back to bite them sooner rather than later. Check out Hawaii Senator Mazie Hirono (D). She made it clear that there is “tremendous fear” Trump will win in November if he’s not kicked out of office before then.

If NYC Doesn’t Get Federal Bailout, De Blasio Set to Lay Off Over 20,000 City Employees

The Democrat way: cause massive problems (or refuse to fix them), then demand more and more money to cover the problem like a band-aid – knowing full well how easily it can peel off. New Yorkers, what were you thinking when you put this guy in office? Want a do-over or what?

Barbot, in the resignation letter she submitted Tuesday morning, said the Health Department’s expertise was not sufficiently tapped. “I leave my post today with deep disappointment that during the most critical public health crisis in our lifetime, that the Health Department’s incomparable disease control expertise was not used to the degree it could have been.” Do the right thing and resign, Bill. Enough is enough.
