Voters Let 2020 Democrats Know What They Think About Their Call To Decriminalize Illegal Border Crossings

Just goes to show how out of touch Democrats are with regular people.

Many of the individuals gunning for the 2020 Democratic Party presidential nomination have expressed a desire to see illegal border crossings decriminalized, making them civil violations instead.

However, this particular policy position seems to be out of step with how actual voters — real American citizens — feel about the issue, a fact made clear by a recent poll conducted by Hill-HarrisX.

Here’s the skinny from TheBlaze:

Forty-one percent of voters surveyed believe illegal border crossers should face criminal prosecution, compared to only 32 percent that believe the act should only be punished by civil fines. Twenty-seven percent of respondents were unsure on the issue.

Of the Republicans surveyed, 67 percent favor criminal prosecution for illegal border crossings. Only 24 percent of Democrats think it should be a criminally prosecuted. Among independents, 36 percent believe it should be a crime, and 33 percent believe it should be a civil violation.

Democratic presidential candidates have come out in favor of decriminalizing illegal border crossings. Former Obama Housing and Urban Development secretary Julian Castro and Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) publicly supported decriminalization first, with other candidates taking the stance during the first debates.

Democrats like Castro have tied criminalization of border crossing to the separation of immigrant children from their parents.

“The reason they’re separating these little children from their families is they’re using Section 1325…to incarcerate the parents and separate them,” Castro said during the first Democratic primary debate.

The bottom line here is that Democrats are yet again out of touch with what actual Americans think and feel about an issue. Rather than continue to push their own agenda down on everyone else, what the left needs to do is rethink their own position on the issue and move more in line with what the public believes to be right and true.

Democrats have been trying so hard since Obama first got elected to push a vision of America down the throats of voters that most of us do not want. This is what alienated so many folks from the Democratic Party in 2016, and if they don’t make drastic changes to their platform, it will happen to them all over again.

What a joke!

Liberals can be summed up with one word: triggered. Everything annoys them to no end, to the point where they feel they need to get violent. We see it happen on nearly a daily basis. Check out what went down when a teenage boy decided to wear a MAGA hat in our nation’s capitol. It didn’t go over well with a random future Joe Biden voter. WATCH: https://twitter.com/charlienicole/status/1279905108289941505?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1279905108289941505%7Ctwgr%5E&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Fhorrible-trump-supporters-in-dc-accosted-and-harassed-by-blm-thug-who-stole-their-maga-hats-video%2F Criminals seemingly don’t have as bad a reputation as police officers. Without question, ex-cop Derek Chauvin was in the wrong when he placed his knee on George Floyd’s neck for nearly nine minutes. But why are all officers being blamed for one bad apple? It’s not right. Some cops are fed-up. From Miami Herald: The 10 members of the Hallandale Beach Police Department’s SWAT team have stepped down from their roles, citing among other grievances anger over the city’s police chief kneeling with protesters earlier this week, a memo the officers signed read. They will remain with the police department. On Friday morning, Hallandale Beach received a memo from the members of the SWAT team with a list of grievances, Hallandale Beach City Manager Greg Chavarria said. Police Chief Sonia Quiñones has set a meeting with the 10 officers on Monday to hear their concerns, collect their equipment and thank them for their service.

Report: President Trump to Refile Paperwork This Week That Will Rescind DACA Program

A big move…

Like most things nowadays, DACA has long divided conservatives and liberals. On Monday, it was reported that President Trump is set to make a big move later in the week. Here’s the scoop, via The Hill: President Trump is expected to refile paperwork this week to rescind the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program that offers protections for thousands of young immigrants, according to multiple people familiar with the planning. Trump was initially expected to move to once again rescind the Obama-era program last week, but it was pushed back, according to one source. The exact timing remains in flux, but Trump is now expected to file the paperwork this week. White House chief of staff Mark Meadows hinted in an interview with Fox News earlier Monday that the president was readying executive action on immigration issues, though he did not offer specifics. Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts hasn’t been the conservative stalwart Republicans had expected when first nominated by President George W. Bush. Anything but, really. After siding with his liberals peers yet again, GOP Senator Tom Cotton (AR) is telling Roberts he should step aside.
