Skip to comments.New Poll: Majority Support Trump's Deportation Raids
Posted on 07/18/2019 11:12:35 AM PDT by Kaslin
President Trump has repeatedly announced and discussed a series of Immigration and Customs Enforcement raids to remove hundreds-of-thousands of illegal aliens with final deportation orders. According to the administration, some were carried out last weekend.
The raids have prompted Democrats and their allies in the media to again accuse the Trump administration of unfairly targeting illegal aliens. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and the ACLU have offered direct coaching and advice about how to evade deportation.
“If ICE agents don’t have a warrant signed by a judge, a person may refuse to open the door and let them in,” Pelosi says of the #ICEraids

"A new wave of ICE arrests is expected to begin this Sunday in at least 10 cities across the country. We're fighting back by suing to stop mass deportations of refugee families," the ACLU sent in a fundraising email last week. "Know this: We don't have to open the door if ICE comes knocking. If the agents don't have a warrant signed by a judge, then we can refuse to let them in. We have the right to remain silent. And we shouldn't sign anything before speaking to a lawyer."
"ICE raids are nothing new. But for over two years now, the Trump administration has been terrorizing our communities at a new level – tearing thousands of families apart, spreading fear and hate. If this isn't the kind of country we want to live in, then we must keep fighting to defend our communities," the email continues. "The best way to fight back? Know your rights. And help your family, friends, and neighbors to know theirs."
And of course presidential candidates piled on.
President Trump’s ICE raids are inhumane. His scare tactics solve nothing. We shouldn't be terrorizing communities and splitting up families. We should provide a pathway to citizenship and find a lasting solution.— Joe Biden (@JoeBiden) July 13, 2019
But according to new POLITICO/Morning Consult polling, the majority of American voters support the raids.
Further, a majority believe there is a problem or a crisis at the southern border with Mexico.
Meanwhile, Democrats continue to advocate for open borders and the abolishment of ICE.
Are we having deportation raids?
I was just about to ask the same thing; are any actual raids even happening at all? Trump has done this before; dire warnings of impeding government action, followed by nothing or some greatly minimized, intermittent efforts.
Closing most of the borders to Mexico was another.
The most important difference is between those who strongly support and those who strongly oppose.
Fully a THIRD STRONGLY SUPPORT IT?
And could the support be even greater? If some supporters are reluctant to tell a pollster they support Trump or support action on this issue?
How anyone could not “know” or “have an opinion” on this matter defies logic.
Just to get an understanding, 2000 is not the number of deportations this year is it? It Trump anywhere close to the numbers deported yearly under Obama?
Because they are totally clueless
Maybe an expose and prosecution of Ilhan “Omar”’s own immigration fraud, might serve as a poster child for a wider enforcement/deportation effort.
The article on this thread (a David Steinberg expose on Ilhan Omar): http://freerepublic.com/focus/f-bloggers/3764937/posts, might break the story.
Unfortunately the Constitution will not allow the brainless to be removed from the voter rolls.
If the voters in her district in Michigan are smart, they won’t vote for her, but there are probably a lot of Mooslims there who voted for her and will vote for her again.
The people targeted have final deportation orders, these are the easiest removals.
There is a whole bunch of demonrats that are too stupid to vote that are given a list to take in the voting booth. They vote for whoever is on the list their handlers tell them to.
That is why Republicans passed a law doing away with “straight ticket” voting that allowed checking one box and having it mark every demonrat or Republican on the ballot.
Now they have to be smart enough to read the ballot, and demonrats are really pissed.
The oval does not look that ugly today
THIS SHOULD BE GOING ON BUT NONE OF THIS IS BEING REPORTED
During the Trump roundup Besides determining how they got a drivers license Check the precinct list of registered voters where these people resided. If theyre on that list, Federal crime, charge them and those that enabled them to vote knowing they were illegals
A desk that Donald Trump will not and would not ever put his feet on!
I think its a perfect time and has been for a while to crack down. I certainly hope president Trump has a plan and knows what he doing because we about ready to see voter fraud as intense as ever - the leftist thought they had it with Obama then Clinton. The illegals are one thing to the democrats, votes.
It’s still a long time before the real Election Season begins.
You never know, someone from the republican party may be able to offer a serious choice to Mr. Trump.
Due to numerous ‘stop & go & stop’ incidents as you just described, I no longer consider a serious republican challenger out of the question.
I’m not talking about #NeverTrumpers; someone like David French or “Egg McMuffin”, neither of whom has much appeal or charisma. It could be someone relatively unknown out of their district. Someone who is in agreement with many if not most of the president’s policies. If nothing else, having a credible republican openly challenge him for the nomination, may inspire the president to become a little more organized in making things happen as he said they would.
