In a new poll just released concerning the border wall controversy, President Donald Trump’s approval rating has soared through the roof with this one particular demographic. And the news is sending liberals into a meltdown!
"Wow, just heard that my poll numbers with Hispanics has gone up 19%, to 50%. That is because they know the Border issue better than anyone, and they want Security, which can only be gotten with a Wall."
In his Tweet, Mr. Trump was referencing a survey conducted by NPR/PBS NewsHour/Marist and covered a period from January tenth through the 13th. In it, Latinos/Hispanics gave the President a 50% approval rating.
“Hispanics want LEGAL immigration and a wall!”
That number is a huge rise since the previous Marist survey, conducted between November 28 and December 4, in which Trump’s approval among Latinos polled at just 31 percent.
Why such a big jump in just one month’s time? Experts weighed in on it and what they had to say is NOT was the Left was hoping to hear. In fact, it flies in the face of the agenda they have been pushing ever since the border issue escalated to the current government shutdown.
“Latinos are waking up to the sham that is the message the Democratic Party has had towards Latinos,” stated Republican strategist Gus Portela Saturday on ‘Fox & Friends,’ also noting historic lows in Latino unemployment. “This president has done historic strides to help the Latino community.”
And the issue that LEGAL immigrants seem to have the most trouble with is that their counterparts coming across illegally are not being held to the same standards they faced when going through the process the right way. They want it to STOP.
"Latino immigrants who came to this country legally and their descendants do not think it is fair to them to give legal status and benefits after they went through the whole legal process. What do we have a Dept of Immigration for?"
On Saturday, President Trump proposed what many say is a “common sense compromise” that represents a compromise from what he previously proposed. "The deal includes funding for the border wall in exchange for DACA protections for Dreamers and extended legal status for Temporary Protected Status (TPS) holders."
However, Democrats have stridently refused to consider it because the proposal still includes Mr. Trump’s unwavering insistence on the $5.7 for the border wall he says is necessary for any of the other tenets of immigration reform to work.
Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi dug in her heels further and instead announced that “Democrats are expected to pass a package of six bills ‘agreed to by House and Senate negotiators and other legislation to reopen government so that we can fully negotiate on border security proposals.’
“Pelosi called on the president to sign the bills and reopen the government.” Don’t count on it, Nancy!
With this kind of attitude, it looks as though the government shutdown is only just beginning. Only time will tell who will be the first to blink.
And, of course, social media had a lot to say about this unexpected turn of events:
“Genius. Trump is proving Dems don’t care about immigrants and only want to illegally import more Dem voters. By Proving this he’s turning their base against them. Latino approval up 20% since beginning of Dec.”
“Love the FACT President Trump's approval rating among Latinos has jumped 20 pts since shutdown to an overall approval rating of 51%. No one likes people to jump line and come in illegally! NO ONE!”
