Americans desire national security, respect for our sovereignty
Think back to when a more bombastic Donald Trump stood on the stage with 16 other Republican candidates and seemed the most unlikely of them all to be the last one standing. But his message that has resonated throughout his campaign remains a powerful yet easily understood one. No amnesty for illegals and build a wall
With that strategy, he was bucking the establishment honchos comprising the Republican National Committee that commissioned this self-analysis after the dismal 2012 elections
Their conclusion was the party “must embrace and champion comprehensive immigration reform.” Americans know it more honestly as “amnesty”—- a magnanimous gift for the hordes of illegal invaders. Arizona abuts the porous border and we have been force-fed the “comprehensive” baloney from Jon Kyl, John McCain and Jeff Flake for years.
The RNC’s big tent concept was massaged to remessage the Republican brand to those who think we “don’t care about them.” Whether that is the task before a political party is up for debate. Especially so when they have blatantly disregarded our law to enter the U.S.
In 1992, Bill Clinton’s strategist James Carville coined the phrase “it’s the economy stupid,” as a keep-your-eye on-the-prize objective. Today it’s amnesty for illegals from Mexico, South and Central America as well as Russia, China and Middle Eastern countries that are state sponsors of terrorism. The main job of government is to provide safety to its citizens.
Barack Obama opened the floodgates to all comers looking to increase the Democrat voter base. Hillary Clinton vowed to go even further. For years we’ve been given a static number of 10 -11 million illegals who are already here. As they continue to flood into the U.S. and have families once they arrive the number is actually closer to 30 million.
Donald Trump understands the significance of the amnesty message, and made securing our border a cornerstone of his campaign .No country exists without enforceable borders. Legal immigration, including assimilation to our language, values and customs, once known as Americanization, is welcomed. Being invaded by lawbreakers is not.
An excellent assessment of Donald Trump’s ascension to the presidency of the United States, is written by Breitbart’s senior editor-at-large Joel B. Pollak. This excerpt states his case perfectly, illuminating why Trump was elected:
What the Republican establishment underestimated was how deeply Americans — including key Democratic constituencies, and even legal immigrants — resented amnesty. For some, it was a matter of economic competition. For others, it was a matter of the rule of law. And for others, it was a matter of cultural coherence.
Regardless, Donald Trump reached voters that the GOP had long forgotten by promising to “build a wall” with a “big, beautiful door.”
It was not a call to xenophobia. It was a claim that the diversity that Americans have always cherished — e pluribus unum — rested on the foundations of secure borders, and law enforcement, and fairness. If we don’t have a border, Trump argued, we don’t have a country.
