The majority of a group of 12 swing voters formed by Media outlet Axios think President Trump is handling the immigration crisis “professionally and responsibly.”
The voters were from Warren, which was one of the most divided areas in Macomb County. The town voted for Hillary Clinton 51.9% to Trump’s 42.7%. But Trump won Macomb County by 48,351 votes.
When asked to discuss their top issue regarding to the presidential election, “Their responses sounded a lot like the “America First” message President Trump has been championing,” reported Axios.
The swing voters expressed their opposition to 2020 Democrats’ immigration plan providing free health care to all illegal aliens. “Why would you want to give it to another person from a different country for free?” one voter asked.
Today, Americans subsidize about $18.5 billion worth of yearly medical costs for undocumented immigrants living in the United States. And if the Democrats’ free health care plan were enacted, that would cost American taxpayers about $660 billion over a decade, according to Breitbart.
Another swing voter said, “I feel terrible for these people, but there are people in this country who are struggling to survive. We need to focus on the United States,” referring to veterans and homeless people in the United States.
Homelessness in the United States is a highly complex issue that needs to be addressed. In recent years, the poverty rate has been gradually falling. However, many Americans continue to live in poverty—42.6 million people or 13.4 percent of the population, and still 552,830 people were experiencing homelessness on a single night in 2018, according to National Alliance to end homelessness.
One swing voter blasted the U.S. policy giving birthright citizenship to the U.S.-born children of illegal aliens, criticizing “all they have to do is cross the border illegally, pop out a kid, and they’re a U.S. citizen. Two illegals do not a citizen make.”
After receiving a birthright citizenship, the children of illegals aliens can anchor their noncitizen parents in the United States and they are allowed to bring an unlimited number of foreign relatives through the legal immigration process known as “chain migration.” A study of Census Bureau data showed there are at least 4.5 million “anchor” babies in the United States.
President Donald Trump has denounced birthright citizenship and been giving effort to end the policy. He has also urged Democrats to fix a number of loopholes in immigration law.
The majority of the focus group agreed that they are encouraging illegal aliens to come into the U.S. by giving them more supports, saying, “It’s time that we stop. We gotta think about us first.”
