The Biden administration is failing massive time with its incapability to regulate unlawful immigration, including it to one among a number of points that would doom Democrats if left unchecked.
In a brand new Harvard/Harris ballot, an awesome 80% stated that unlawful immigration is a critical difficulty and one which wants extra consideration than what President Joe Biden or Vice President Kamala Harris are giving.
What’s extra, 68% stated that alerts from Biden’s White House are encouraging unlawful immigration, and 55% imagine that former President Donald Trump’s border closing insurance policies ought to have been left in place.
Pollster Mark Penn sized up the outcomes this manner: “Immigration is boiling up as an issue.”
Add it to growing voter issues about inflation, taxes, and the critical race theory controversy, and this may very well be a summer time of woe for Democrats. “These are not good numbers for Democrats,” stated an adviser to House Republicans.
The fears of unlawful immigration have been a key a part of Penn’s evaluation of his June ballot for Harvard’s Center for American Political Studies and the Harris Poll.
He wrote: “Sixty-four p.c of registered voters want the Biden administration to difficulty new, stricter insurance policies to scale back the stream of individuals throughout the border. Only 7% of voters may precisely name out the quantity of month-to-month unlawful immigrants crossing into the U.S. with 84% underestimate the quantity, suggesting we should always count on stronger voter reactions if the disaster evolves additional. Overall, 74% of voters view the present surge in unlawful immigrants as a disaster that must be addressed instantly, and 56% don’t view local weather change, racism, and sexism as root causes of migration from South and Central America.”
Harris, who was tasked to resolve the problem, didn’t get a successful grade. Most thought she ought to have visited the border sooner than Friday, and extra failed her journey to Central America, throughout which she sought to heal the “root causes” of unlawful immigration.
And regardless of liberal media efforts to dismiss the debates in class districts across the nation over the teaching of critical race theory, the ballot discovered that it too was a scorching difficulty.
“On schooling and education, another sleeper issue, 61% do not believe students should be taught that America is structurally racist and is dominated by white supremacy,” stated Penn in his e mail.
