Poll Finds Americans Fed Up With Immigration, Trade
“Polling data from Caddell & Associates shows that Americans across the political spectrum are infuriated with the permanent political class pushing through trade deals that don’t serve the interests of American workers. The online survey of 1,950 conducted Feb. 23 to March 3, with a margin of error under 3 percent, found that 85 percent of voters rated ‘American jobs moving overseas because of the loss of American manufacturing’ between a 6 and 10 on a scale of 1 to 10 as being an ‘extremely important problem,’” Breitbart News says.
Investor Visas Tied to Trump’s Son-in-Law
“While Donald Trump says America “loses” to China, his family uses the U.S. immigration system to collect millions of dollars from Chinese nationals seeking American visas,” says NJ.com. “The Kushner Companies, headed by Trump’s son-in-law, Jared Kushner, is building Trump Bay Street, a 50-story luxury apartment building in Jersey City. It adjoins the high-rise Trump Plaza Residence. About a quarter of the tower’s funding — $50 million — comes via the federal EB-5 investor-visa program, which grants U.S. visas to mainly Chinese investors.”
Media Will Pin Anything on Trump
“Donald Trump attempted to derail ABC journalist Cokie Roberts Wednesday morning by telling her she asked a ‘very nasty question’ of him, when she wanted to know if he is ‘proud’ of reports that white teens and children have been using his name and threats of deportation to taunt children of color, but she pressed on with her questions over his interruptions,” Newsmax wrote.
“He interrupted her while she told him that the incidents had been widely reported, telling her that ‘that’s not the purpose of it. We want to make America great again,’ he said. ‘We want to bring back industry. We want to bring back our jobs from China and Japan and by the way, Mexico, which has taken so many of our jobs. I have not heard about these instances.’”
Should Border Patrol Agents Use Body Cameras?
“In 2010, Anastasio Hernandez Rojas, a husband and father of five, was handcuffed, tortured and brutally beaten to death by 12 Border Patrol agents at the San Ysidro border crossing in California. The horrifying incident witnessed by dozens of people exposed a systemic problem with the nation’s largest law enforcement agency: that Border Patrol agents operate with impunity, without meaningful accountability, and in complete opaqueness,” says an op-ed in The Hill.
Texas Gov. Says More Money Needed to Secure the Border
“Governor Greg Abbott says until the Federal Government steps up, the state of Texas must continue to send resources down south to secure the Texas-Mexico border. ‘The Obama administration has pretty much given up,’ Governor Abbott said Wednesday,” Texashomepage.com says.
