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.

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!

Meghan McCain Says Trump Admin Using West As ‘Slush Fund’ For Putin

Published

on

Meghan McCain, co-host of “The View,” is making some rather strange allegations against the Trump administration, claiming that she believes they are using their positions to create a “slush fund” for Russia and its president Vladimir Putin. Here’s more from The Washington Examiner: McCain, 35, made the comment during a brief moment on Monday’s show in which she addressed her presentation of the Magnitsky Award to Oleg Sentsov, who was imprisoned in Russia for coming out against Russia’s annexation of Crimea, last week. “I was at the Magnitsky Human Rights Awards in London, and Sergei Magnitsky was someone who found corruption in Russia, was subsequently tortured and killed because of it, and there is now an act that is in the United States, and we’re trying to make it expand globally where basically Russia can’t use the West and democracy for their dirty money, that they can’t launder it in countries that love and utilize democracy and freedom every single day,” she said. Before the show went to a commercial break, she added, “I believe there are people in the Trump administration that are trying to use the West as a slush fund for Vladimir Putin and Russia, and we cannot let it happen.” https://youtu.be/yCYam09arxU Russian attorney Natalia Veselnitskaya stated previously she discussed the reexamination of the Magnitsky law with President Trump’s son, Donald Trump Jr., here referenced by McCain, during a meeting that took place back at Trump Tower back in 2016 before Trump won the election.

Navy SEAL From Bin Laden Raid Calls Out Biden For Saying Trump ‘Not Fit To Command’ Troops, Says ‘How Dare You’

Published

on

Former Navy SEAL Robert O’Neill, the man who claims to have killed radical Islamic terrorist Osama bin Laden, let it be known in no uncertain terms that he was not happy with a recent statement made by former Vice President Joe Biden stating President Trump is not fit to command U.S. troops. Biden posted up a tweet on Sunday about Trump’s decision to pardon three military members who had been accused or convicted of war crimes. The president cleared Army Special Forces Maj. Mathew Golsteyn and Army Lt. Clint Lorance and restored the rank of Navy SEAL Edward Gallagher. The list of crimes they had been charged with included killing a suspected Taliban bomb maker, taking photographs of an Islamic State fighter’s dead body, and killing two civilians. Here’s more from the Washington Examiner: Trump claimed he intervened because he wants Americans fighting overseas to have the “confidence to fight.” Biden claimed Trump’s decision “betrayed the rule of law” and those who fight honorably. O’Neill, who claims he was the SEAL responsible for killing Osama bin Laden, shot down the 2020 Democrat’s tweet by highlighting his own foreign policy flaws. He noted that Biden reportedly opposed the 2011 raid to kill bin Laden and that he announced SEAL Team 6 was responsible for the operation. https://twitter.com/JoeBiden/status/1196093459486191616 Many individuals think that Biden’s admission of SEAL Team 6’s involvement in the death of bin Laden put the team’s members in danger, including an attack on one of the team’s helicopters which resulted in the death of several individuals who participated in the raid. https://twitter.com/mchooyah/status/1196291215844495360 Lest anyone think O’Neill is a die-hard Trump supporter, it’s important to note he’s been critical of the commander-in-chief on many occasions, including the president’s call for a military parade, which he called “third world bulls***.”
