President Trump's many political reversals and mistakes call his government's immigration strategy into question. Despite all the malfunctions, one thing was and was obvious: Trump wants the border enforced. According to a new survey, the majority of Americans.
A recent Hill-HarrisX poll found that 41% of voters believe that those who cross the border illegally should be prosecuted – an important policy of the Trump administration. Only 32% believe that they should only be punished with fines.
Democrats do not seem to know the public consensus on immigration ̵
The Democrat elections in 2020 are about who can beat Trump. Who wins the nomination, must sound different, sound and campaign as the president. But this tedious effort to do better than Trump has led many of the candidates to shake their heads when it comes to topics that really interest voices, such as immigration.
The Democratic Party is increasingly opposed to the enforcement of immigration rules and will do even more with the approach of 2020. This will only help Trump. He always has advantages when his opponents go too far, and his overreaching has made him more respected in the Americans who voted for the wall, stricter border enforcement, and limited immigration.
If the Democrats had learned anything since 2016, they would be more aware of their immigration risks. They would meet Trump and the GOP on the battlefield of ideas. But agreeing with him, even if it were only part of it, would be political suicide in a primary competition based on opposition to Trump and everything he stands for. But if Democrats succeed in winning the White House, this stubborn opposition to the public will not be what they do.
