Fox News Poll: 50% Support Southern Border Wall

A Fox News survey finds that half of American voters support a border wall between the United States and Mexico.  Those who favor building the wall is up to 50%, a large increase from only 44% in December of 2019. Those who oppose a wall is 46%, which is a new low, down from 52% who opposed a wall in December of 2019.

Fox News reports “the shift comes mostly from women (+8), whites, (+7), Republicans (+6), Democrats (+5), and Blacks (+5) being more likely to favor it now compared to 2019. A switch of mentality on immigrants has also changed.

“The number saying immigrants hurt the country has risen 15 percentage points since 2019 when 24 percent felt that way.” In 2019, 24 percent said immigrants “hurt the country” and now it is up to 39 percent. The percentage of those who believe immigrants help the country has stayed at 48 percent from 2019 to now.

In 2019 21 percent chose the alternative to help or hurt, “depends.” Now, a much lower 11 percent chose “depends.” The survey also asked about what should happen to children at the border who arrive without any parent or guardian.

“A majority, 58 percent, says allow them to enter the country, either to be cared for by religious or charitable organizations (40 percent) or housed in government facilities until relatives can be found (18 percent).” 38 percent believe they should be returned to their home country.

It was also asked how voters perceive President Biden to be handling the issues. “President Biden is in negative territory when it comes to handling immigration (38 percent approve vs. 57 percent disapprove) and border security (40-56).”

Republican pollster Daron Shaw who conducted the Fox News poll with Democrat Chris Anderson said, “given the recent surge in illegal crossings, and the particular uptick in unaccompanied minors at the border, it is unsurprising that Biden receives his worst marks on these issues.”

    I find it hard to believe that only 50% of this country support the wall! I alone am worth another 50%. I despise the unelected so-called “President” and his evil Democratic thugs. Are those people crazy, or what?? It took only 4 years for the REAL President, Donald J. Trump, to make our country Utopia. He loved this wonderful country, and “Sippy Cup” ( Sean’s terrific nickname is dead on!) Hidin’ Biden stayed in the basement relaxing daily. He didn’t have to stump because he knew damned well he would win. Democrats made a deal with ol’ Joe that if he did everything they wanted, he would be president. He did, and all the evil D’s are now destroying this country. I believe that calling a person “Democrat” is the worst epithet one can call another person.

DeSantis to Legislate Ban Working With Contractors who Help Biden’s ‘Mass Human Smuggling Operation’

Published

on

Ron DeSantis

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis told Fox News’ The Ingraham Angle when it comes to helping illegal immigrants do things, well, illegally, he wants the perpetrators to have consequences.

Speaking specifically about contractors who are flying illegal immigrants around the country, DeSantis said, “They’ve done over 70 flights in the last six months, dump people here. And we had – a few weeks ago – one of those people that Biden dumped, ended up committing a murder in northeast Florida.”

“Our view is, if they’re going to be dumping, we want to be able to facilitate transfer to places like Delaware, and, so, we have $8 million in my new budget to be able to do that” he added. He is also looking to pass legislation which will ban contractors who work with the Biden administration on the flights from doing business with the state of Florida.

We are going to pass legislation that says if you are facilitating Biden’s policies—which is effectively a mass human smuggling operation—you are not going to be able to do business with the state of Florida or other local governments,” DeSantis said.

Fox News reports “DeSantis’s office has previously claimed that the Biden administration has flown migrants to Jacksonville, Fla., in order to ease crowding at border facilities.”

“On average, there’s 36 passengers on each of these flights. And that has been going on over the course of the summer through September,” Florida public safety czar Larry Keefe told the Washington Examiner in November.

Earlier this year, White House press secretary Jen Psaki confirmed a New York Post report that the administration was flying migrants from Texas to New York. Psaki said unaccompanied minors on those flights were “en route to their final destination to be reunified with their parents or vetted sponsor” reports Fox News.

Former DEA Agent who Conspired with Colombian Cartel Sentenced to 12 Years

Published

Jose Irizarry

Despite his attorney’s interesting defense that “when my client joined the DEA he was schooled in how to be corrupt” former agent Jose Irizarry has been sentenced. The former U.S. narcotics agent “used his badge to build a lavish lifestyle of expensive cars, parties on yachts and Tiffany jewels” reports NBC News.

Irizarry was sentenced to “more than 12 years in federal prison Thursday for conspiring to launder money with a Colombian cartel.” Irizarry admitted to his crimes, but the defense for his case was to blame his former colleagues at the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration.

“When my client joined the DEA he was schooled in how to be corrupt, he was schooled in how to break the law” said his attorney Maria Dominguez in court. “In this alternate universe it became easier and less suspect to accept money and gifts” from criminal informants who worked with the narcotics agency.

In handing down her sentence Thursday, U.S. District Court Judge Charlene Honeywell addressed any failings by the DEA for its handling of corrupt agents by “the allure of easy money.” She said it also needed to be investigated.

“This has to stop…you were the one who got caught but it is apparent to this court that there are others.” NBC News reports:

Irizarry’s allegations underscore the porous oversight he received during his career, in which he was entrusted with the government’s use of front companies, shell bank accounts and couriers to combat international drug trafficking.

They also raise new questions about whether his colleagues in the Miami field office, where Irizarry’s criminal activity began, similarly abused the badge in their handling of confidential informants who every year move tens of millions of dollars in dirty money under the DEA’s supervision.

Dominguez in court filings revealed that since Irizarry’s arrest last year he has met with prosecutors for “endless hours” to provide information on the criminal activities of “fellow law-enforcement agents who initiated him in a life of crime.”

Honeywell recently sealed “sensitive” documents filed in the criminal case, saying their disclosure could potentially impede an ongoing criminal investigation, cause targets to flee and hinder cooperation from other witnesses. So far, other than Irizarry’s wife, Nathalia Gomez-Irizarry, and a Colombian customs worker, nobody else has been charged in the conspiracy.
