Donald Trump’s argument on illegal immigration resonates with the American people and has shifted debate on the issue.
“The most dramatic effect that Trump’s campaign has had already is to focus the Republican debate on immigration and dramatically shift the Overton Window – the politically viable spectrum of debate – on the issue,” The Guardian reports today.
On August 5 Rasmussen Reports released the results of a national poll on illegal immigration. It found that 60% of likely U.S. voters think the U.S. government is not aggressive enough in deporting those who are in the country illegally.
In another poll conducted on Wednesday after Trump’s stand drew praise and condemnation (the establishment tried to portray him as a racist) found 70% of Republican voters would like to see a wall erected on the border to keep illegal aliens out of the country.
In addition, “Ninety-two percent (92%) of Republicans agree that the United States should deport all illegal immigrants who have been convicted of a felony in this country. Only four percent (4%) disagree.”
Republicans Oppose Birthright Citizenship and Support a Wall on the Border
Establishment candidates are now scrambling to get on the same page as Trump and the American people.
The primary issue is now “birthright citizenship,” a principle supposedly enshrined in the 14th Amendment. It states that the children of illegal immigrants born in the United States shall not be denied citizenship.
GOP presidential hopeful Scott Walker has vacillated on the issue but clarified his opinion on Monday.
“Yeah, to me it’s about enforcing the laws in this country. And I’ve been very clear, I think you enforce the laws, and I think it’s important to send a message that we’re going to enforce the laws, no matter how people come here we’re going to enforce the laws in this country,” the Wisconsin Governor said when asked about ending birthright citizenship.
He also declared his support for a border fence.
Others, including Rand Paul, John Kasich, and Chris Christie have questioned the appropriateness of what was previously called the “anchor baby” phenomenon.
Paul has gone so far as to suggest a congressional resolution that would amend the Constitution and close the birthright loophole.
Paul and fellow Republican Senator David Vitter issued a statement in 2011 declaring it is incorrect to assume “the 14th Amendment confers birthright citizenship to the children of illegal aliens, either by its language or intent.” The joint resolution “makes clear that under the 14th Amendment a person born in the United States to illegal aliens does not automatically gain citizenship.”
Global Elite Plan to Destroy America from Within in Jeopardy
The emerging consensus on the border and the specter of millions of immigrants largely dependent on government assistance flooding into the country is putting the oligarchy’s political and social agenda at risk.
In addition to diluting American culture — a culture that created the most inventive and prosperous economy in world history — the elite are flooding the country with illegal immigrants in order to take down the middle class and turn the nation into a third world cesspool on par with Mexico and other Latin American countries.
A huge transfer of wealth from productive Americans to a parasitical class of poverty-stricken immigrants will hasten the economic demise of the nation.
Moreover, the populations of Mexico and Central America long ago accepted authoritarian government and look to government for meager handouts in exchange for their submission.
Poverty and submission are required if the global elite are to be successful in their bid to establish a worldwide plantation of peasants and campesinos.
Donald Trump has not addressed this plan specifically, but his animosity toward open borders and an unprecedented expansion of the welfare state at the expense of an already diminished middle class signals trouble for the elite.
