President Joe Biden’s alleged strategy of stopping illegal immigration at the border is backed by six out of ten Democrats as well as independents.
The majority of Biden’s alleged agenda is a media-supported public relations ploy to legitimize his support for Wall Street by doubling immigration over the limits established by Congress in 1990.
However, the Democrats’ support for the ostensible limitations demonstrates how many of them want to see their leadership promote a strategy of restricting immigration. By promoting a smaller immigration policy, Republicans may win over more swing voters, as seen by the Democrats’ support.
The survey of 1,137 individuals was conducted on May 9 and 10 by CivicScience, a company that claims it “was established to revolutionize research on opinions in the digital age.”
Many supporters of Democrats are very partisan and will support their party’s leaders. However, a large portion of these Democratic voters also want the social and economic advantages that would result from a low-migration strategy, such as improved working conditions.
Democrats only reject Biden’s alleged limitations in 18% of cases.
Democratic voters are protesting because of this 3:1 gap among Democrats in New York, Chicago, and other cities.
Democrats are aware that their own coalition has issues with their immigration policy. The Hill reported:
Democratic strategist Joel Payne said, “I do not believe that problem lends itself to developing a lot of benefits. You will still annoy a lot of people, even if things are handled correctly.”
“There can be no winning on this because everyone sees it differently.”
GOP leaders might get more Democratic supporters if they present anti-migration ideas in amenable language and justifications for reducing migration due to the Democrats’ competing interests. These justifications may include worries about the financial effect on Americans, the environmental impact of migration, or the growing employment of child migrants in U.S. occupations.
But as of now, neither party is interested in appealing to swing voters in the immigration debate. Instead, the GOP and the Democratic parties downplay the financial harm and instead use immigration as a stick to stir up support among their supporters.
The two parties are able to win over contributors who are adamant that the government should continue to import cheap labor, renters who share apartments, and recipients of social benefits by using the ignore-the-swing-voters tactic.
One GOP candidate for 2024 is attempting to win over swing voters by promising to reduce immigration. This week, Governor Ron Desantis stated:
“As Americans, we decide what kind of immigration policy is best for our nation, but when it comes to immigration, it’s not about the benefit of the immigrants as foreigners, it’s about the benefit as Americans.”
