Fifty-one percent of Americans say in a new survey that they’re in favor of mass deportations of illegals, and oddly enough, a sizable share of self-identified Democrats are among those who agree. 

And with that — this: “Trump pledges that as president he would immediately launch ‘the largest domestic deportation operation in American history,’” The Washington Post — and plenty of other media — reported a couple of months ago.

Any questions?

President Biden, beware. Beware the elections. Consequences for open border actions are coming.

“Half of Americans — including 42% of Democrats — say they’d support mass deportations of undocumented immigrants. … And 30% of Democrats — as well as 46% of Republicans — now say they’d end birthright citizenship.” Axios wrote about its new Axios Vibes survey by The Harris Poll of 6,251 adults.

That means Donald Trump is bringing a winning message. But Biden?

“[W]hen it comes to blame [about the border], Biden so far has failed to shift the narrative [his way]: 32% of respondents say his administration is ‘most responsible’ for the crisis,” Axios wrote.

That’s ‘cause he is.

In 2020, NPR wrote this: “Biden Pledges To Dismantle Trump’s Sweeping Immigration Changes.”

Campaign promise fulfilled. Whereas Trump clamped down the border and built walls and tightened controls — controls that were stretched and erased during the previous eight years of Barack Obama — and restricted asylum seekers from abusing the system, and fought to stop the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) and “Dreamers” program, and cut visas for refugees and maybe most importantly, implemented a “Remain in Mexico” policy that forced those seeking asylum to, well, remain in Mexico while their cases were being heard in immigration courts — Biden went the opposite way.

Biden went so opposite that migrants seeking to enter America started sporting pro-Biden T-shirts at the border.

“Biden, please let us in!” — their shirts blared. And boy oh boy, did Biden comply.

In February, figures showed Team Biden let in 7.2 million illegals — more than the population of 36 states — and a record for America. Even the Biden-fawning media couldn’t run a complete cover.

“Illegal border crossings have averaged 2 million per year since 2021, the highest level ever,” The Post wrote in February. 

“Polls show broad public disapproval of how President Biden has handled the surge,” The Post went on.

They still do; in the latest of Axios, “nearly two-thirds of Americans said illegal immigration is a real crisis, not a politically driven media narrative.” Yes, even Democrats. That’s because crime, drugs, violence know no political boundaries.

Democrats, not just Republicans, are having to pay the extra tax costs associated with these illegals. Democrats, not just Republicans are facing the risk of terrorism and compromise of national security due to open borders and mass illegals’ migration into America, too.

“With your vote I will seal the border, I will stop the invasion, I will end the carnage, bloodshed and killing, and we will crush the human traffickers,” Trump, the presumptive GOP presidential nominee, said during a speech in battleground Wisconsin a few weeks ago.

“This is an invasion of our country and by the way, hundreds of thousands of people, between the drugs that come in our border and all of the death that’s brought into the border … hundreds of thousands of people are being killed in our country every year,” Trump continued during this same speech.

More and more are realizing his rhetoric isn’t inflammatory but rather, factual — and frightening. The America of the free has under this Biden administration become an America in free fall. Border control is the top issue this November. Even Democrats are recognizing this.

Even Democrats are noticing their dear leader is failing.

And that’s good news. Because when Trump wins this November, that means he’ll have the support of the majority of the nation to launch his mass deportation operation. Even Democrats are sick and tired of Democrat border policies.
