80% of Americans Want Secure Borders by The Elephant's Child

Roughly 80% of all voters say that the United States needs secure borders, including 68% of Democrats, in a poll conducted by Harvard University.

The findings reveal, for example, that eight out of 10 of all U.S. voters — 79 percent — say the U.S. needs secure borders; 93 percent of Republicans, 80 percent of independents and 68 percent of Democrats agree with that.

Another 79 percent of voters overall say immigration priorities should be granted on a person’s “ability to contribute to America”; 87 percent of Republicans, 79 percent of independents and 72 percent of Democrats agree.

Meanwhile, 68 percent overall oppose a lottery-based immigration system which is meant to ensure “greater diversity”: in the U.S.; 78 percent of Republicans, 65 percent of independents and 62 percent of Democrats agree.

In addition, 61 percent overall say U.S. border security is inadequate; 84 percent of Republicans, 64 percent of independents and 40 percent of Democrats agree.

According to the most recent analysis by  the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR), one illegal immigrant living in America today costs U.S. citizen taxpayers about $8,075. In total illegal aliens cost American taxpayers $116 billion annually. This number is predictably disputed by the media and the Democrats, but even using conservative estimates compiled five years ago, Heritage found that illegal immigrant households imposed a net fiscal burden of around $54.5 billion a year (benefits received minus taxes paid). The funding Trump is requesting  is about 10% of the annual cost of the amount taxpayers pay to provide services for illegal immigrants.

Democrats and the media continually complain that “walls don’t work” but even the slightest investigation proves them wrong on that one. Walls work every time. Doesn’t mean they are perfect, but they work well enough to significantly reduce the illegal population.

One of the most obvious objections to the Democrat’s current protestations, is that not long ago, when they were in charge, they were claiming the exact opposite position. See here, and here, and here. The Democrats’ position is entirely based, not on principle, but on resistance to anything Trump. As they occasionally admit, they don’t have any principles, only the propaganda of the moment handed down from their propaganda shop. Schumer and Pelosi inadvertently proved that with identical twitter posts.
