Back in August, I wrote an article that detailed the fact that only 25% of Democrats would support abolishing ICE after the illegal immigration debate heated up once again and somehow was hurting Trump to a degree.
While I do not necessarily have any news surrounding Democrats’ support of abolishing ICE, I do bring some news surrounding Latino voters’ views on ICE. And they don’t look good for Democrats.
A recently released poll by NBC News/Wall Street Journal/Telemundo found that, of 300 interviewees who were registered Latino voters, 36% would be less likely to vote for a candidate who supports abolishing ICE compared to 33% who would be more likely to vote for such a candidate.
26% said there was “no difference” either way and 5% said they were “not sure”.
Now, the poll doesn’t just focus on this one item. The poll is actually quite extensive, for example:
But perhaps most interestingly, though not necessarily shocking:
So we really should take everything in this poll with a grain of salt. This is a relatively small sample size, with only 300 registered Latino voters being surveyed.
But there are a number of things to take away from all this. Primarily, while the vast majority of Latino voters understand socialism and despise it, they do not recognize it in Democrats… somehow. Despite the fact that they do not like socialism at all, they still seemingly hold a negative view towards Trump and the GOP and would prefer the Democrats to win in November.
So what this poll tells me is that there is a severe lack of knowledge out there for Latinos. Now, don’t misunderstand, I’m not saying Latinos are stupid. Ignorance and idiocy are two different things. People can cease being ignorant simply through learning and acquiring knowledge. However, people can’t cease being stupid even with knowledge.
It’s clear to me that these Latino voters understand that Capitalism is good and Socialism is evil. They are not stupid. However, they are ignorant if they still prefer Democrats over Trump and the GOP. They do not recognize that the Democrats would only bring about the same kind of Socialism that they despise and some might even had fled from.
Regardless, that is a topic for another time. Right now, I want to focus on the fact that even within the same poll that has Latinos adamantly rejecting Trump and the GOP, Latinos also report being less likely to vote for someone who would support abolishing ICE.
It’s this sort of inconsistency that leads me to take everything this poll says with a grain of salt, even the things that are positive in my eyes. Latinos prefer Obama over Trump, the Dems over the GOP, all the while supporting Capitalism over Socialism and keeping ICE over abolishing it?
Taking aside the fact that this is a poll from an MSM source, this poll does not seem very consistent and might not be entirely credible.
However, the fact that the poll shows Latinos favoring ICE and being less likely to vote for a candidate that would support abolishing it speaks volumes, regardless of credibility.
I can understand if the poll wanted to skew certain things to make Trump and the GOP look bad and like they are about to get kicked out of Washington. I don’t know how many of the registered Latino voters are Democrats compared to Republicans. But I would be naïve to assume there is no overlap of Democrat voters in an MSM poll. However, I won’t speculate further.
All I’m saying is that it is remarkable that, despite many of the other things the poll shows, the voters would prefer ICE stay than be abolished. That goes against many other things the poll indicates and the Democrats claim. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez ran, among other things, on the promise of abolishing ICE. Upon her upset victory over Joe Crowley, other Democrats picked up on some of the things she was saying and moved farther Left, also calling on ICE to be abolished.
Now, as I said at the beginning of the article, support for abolishing ICE has dropped off massively since Ocasio-Cortez’s victory even within Democrats. So perhaps I should not be so surprised that Latinos tend to have a more favorable view of the agency. But that’s not what has me intrigued. Frankly, it’s not that surprising.
For the most part, registered Latino voters are legal immigrants (though I don’t know if there were any illegals who were considered “registered voters” in the poll or actually are “registered voters” as illegal as that is, but I won’t speculate further on that issue… for now). Legal immigrants tend to not have positive views on illegal immigrants.
You see, legal immigrants go through the process the right way. They (we, since I am a legal immigrant and now proud U.S. citizen) pay what needs to be paid, wait the amount of time that needs to be waited, sign and complete all the forms that need to be signed and completed, and overall go through the extensive process of attaining legal status to immigrate and become a legal U.S. resident.
Illegals basically crap all over that.
So, when legal immigrants such as myself see what illegals are doing and the preference they receive from the Democrats, we tend to not like that. Now, I do realize the poll shows Latinos prefer Democrats over the GOP, but as I insinuated, that’s relatively questionable right now.
When we see a government agency properly enforcing the immigration laws we ourselves were subjected to, we tend to like that. No one should be able to come here through illegal means and those that do should immediately be considered criminals. And don’t tell me that’s harsh. If you break the law, you’re a criminal. If you break immigration law, you’re a criminal. Simple as that.
This is a view that, from what logic and seemingly data from an MSM poll, most legal immigrants share. So what has me surprised is not that registered Latino voters seemingly marginally support ICE. What has me surprised is that the MSM poll would show that.
Either way, I would imagine the MSM would focus more on the numbers that help reflect their narrative that a blue wave is incoming and inevitable than to focus on the fact that Latinos would be less likely to support a candidate that wants ICE abolished or the fact that Latinos tend to despise Socialism and prefer Capitalism.
But regardless of what the fake news media has to say, they have given me no reason to believe what they say on multiple occasions.

I have written about this sort of thing before, but it’s significant to see a member of the MSM (New Republic contributor Adrian Carrasquillo) contributing to this conversation and calling out the Dems for taking Hispanics for granted.
In fact, that is almost literally the title of his article: “Democrats Are Taking Latino Voters for Granted.”
In the piece, Carrasquillo begins by calling out the fact that in the Florida Senatorial race between Gov. Rick Scott and Sen. Bill Nelson, Rick Scott has taken the time to reach out to Hispanic voters by placing ads played during the World Cup and having a Spanish page on his website, while Nelson has done neither of these things or anything to match them. Carrasquillo writes: “Such decisions reveal a cavalier attitude toward Latino voters that isn’t just a problem for Nelson, whose race is unexpectedly tight, but for the party as a whole.”
Carrasquillo believes, interestingly enough, that the President’s actions toward illegal immigrants, a “botched” response to Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico and increased deportations and separation of families at the border “should help Democrats win over Latino voters.”
Interestingly enough, here is where Carrasquillo makes some assumptions of his own. Carrasquillo’s point is that the Democrats are simply assuming that Hispanics will turn out to vote for them in elections and that that’s where they could be wrong due to their lack of outreach. However, Carrasquillo makes an assumption of his own: that Hispanic voters are supportive of illegal immigrants, don’t like the President’s efforts to deport the illegals, and don’t like the fact that “families” are separated at the border.
That is where Carrasquillo makes wrong assumptions of his own. Those of us who came to the United States legally, at least for the most part, do not appreciate illegals coming in here.
Here’s a short list of the things that we don’t like about illegal immigration:
Again, I’m not asking for preferential treatment just because I came here the right way. I’m asking that you don’t reward those WHO BREAK THE LAW! How difficult is that concept to grasp?!
The list could be longer, by mentioning illegals stealing jobs and such, but I’ll end it there.
So while Carrasquillo might believe Hispanics support illegal immigrants, the truth is that those of us who came here legally simply do not support illegals. It rightly ticks us off that they are allowed to do this and it rightly ticks us off that Democrats are actively breaking the law by setting up “sanctuary cities and states” in order to protect those who should not be here.
Carrasquillo also notes a poll of 1,000 Latino voters that found that “more than 70% were ‘very angry’ about the separation of families at the border and about Trump calling immigrants ‘animals’.”
Here’s the thing: the way media portrays things for people often has some impact on polls. For example, the firestorm that happened over separation of families at the border. I personally have said that families should not be separated (though I was not “very angry” about it). However, I now understand why that policy was put in place: there are plenty of illegals who will cross the border with a child that is not their own. There are plenty of illegals who are sex slave smugglers and get children across the border. Without such a policy, it puts more children at risk. Yes, actual families were separated, but it’s not like they were never going to see each other again (though that’s how the media was portraying it).
And about the “animal” comments, that also has to do with media portrayal. Anyone who actually listened to Trump, even outside the context of the situation, could understand that he was talking about MS-13 and others who were committing heinous crimes in America. I was not “very angry” at that because I perfectly understood what he meant, just as anyone who is not brainwashed by the Left could.
Carrasquillo then brings up other races such as California’s 39th district, where the Democrat candidate is trailing the Republican by 2 points, despite the fact that Hillary Clinton won that county, as well as in Texas’ Senate race between Ted Cruz and Beto O’Rourke, where Cruz is ahead, even with Hispanic voters.
Well, in regards to the Texas Senate race, what you have is a Democrat candidate who is of Irish descent and his real name is Robert Francis O’Rourke but is addressed as “Beto” to pander to Hispanics in Texas. Meanwhile, you have Senator Ted Cruz, who is the descendant of a Cuban man who sought political asylum in the U.S. and whose real name is Rafael Edward Cruz. In other words, Cruz is a real Hispanic candidate.
The interesting thing about Beto O’Rourke is that Hispanics don’t claim he is appropriating our culture by calling himself “Beto”. You would think some would have a problem with this, but since he’s a Democrat, I guess he gets a pass.
Finally, Carrasquillo talks about how the Democrats have the money and resources to spend on Hispanic outreach, but choose against it, and such an action, Carrasquillo believes, will be a detriment to the Democrats come November.
Personally, I don’t think not spending money on Hispanic outreach will be a detriment to the Democrats. Spending time calling Trump a racist based on no substantial evidence, inciting violence against Trump staffers and supporters, promising to raise people’s taxes if elected, promising to impeach the duly-elected president on the grounds that he “colluded” with Russia despite zero evidence to it, promising to open our borders so we can be flooded with illegals, drug cartels, gun cartels and unending crime, promising to refund Iran’s nuclear capabilities, promising to basically undo our progress with North Korea, promising to put people back on welfare and implementing regulations that will cost people their jobs, promising to force you to pay for government systems that will bankrupt the country, promising to abolish institutions that protect people from criminals (ICE, prisons, etc.) and promising to impose heavy gun control measures to the point where the 2nd Amendment is essentially null and void is what will be a detriment to the Democrats.
Here’s the reality of the situation: the Democrat Party does not stand for Making America Great Again. They stand for hatred. Hatred for Trump and those who support and elected him. Hatred for this country. Hatred for traditional values. Hatred for foundational values. Hatred for everything that is right.
What they propose, as much as they want to sugarcoat it, is the impending death of this country, not only as founded, but as it stands.
Not a single one of their proposed ideas could actually help anyone. This has been true for some time, but now, it’s even easier to call these things out. Abolishing ICE will weaken our border security and destroy the Border States.
Abolishing prison will naturally and logically raise crime. It’s basically the next best thing to legalizing crime that the Left can come up with. You can’t go to jail if jail has been abolished, so what is stopping criminals from destroying people’s lives? They would have even more incentive to be evil, knowing they will not have to pay for it.
Medicare-for-all is an enterprise that could bankrupt the country on its own. Combine that with the fact that they want to abolish profits and establish a system of guaranteed income, and you have a society drenched in utter chaos and calamity.
The Democrats don’t have anything going for themselves. They can’t promote themselves, so they have to attack their opposition. They have no good ideas, so they attack the ideas of others. The only reason they are even considered a threat to the GOP is that the media is on their side. If the media really were unbiased, the Democrat Party would cease to exist.
Had they been unbiased up to now, Obama would not have won a reelection (he still likely would have won the first time, at least). The reason for this is not that Obama faced tough competition in 2012. The reason is that he would have been impeached long before the 2012 election.
The ironic thing is that, if they had been unbiased, it’s possible that Trump would not have felt the need to run for office and another Republican candidate would be POTUS right now.
Remember, part of the reason Trump ran is because of the fake news media being heavily biased and that Obama was destroying the country. With no Obama in office long enough to damage the country, Trump would not be in office right now.
But without the media, the Democrat Party has nothing. Sure, they can brainwash useful pawns to support socialism, but it’s not going to take them very far. Most of the country isn’t socialist. And even if we were, we would quickly drop the system of government to return to capitalism.
Which brings me to another topic to discuss at another time: the soul of an American is filled with freedom. We fought to gain our independence from oppression. We can do so once again should the need arise.
It’s in our DNA to yearn for freedom. We know that we’d rather die on our feet than live on our knees.
But that’s a topic for another time. To wrap things up, it’s interesting to see a member of the MSM calling out the Dems over their lack of outreach for Hispanics. But even if they heed this guy’s advice, there’s no way in Hell I would ever vote for a Democrat.

What do you figure is the Left’s worst nightmare? Aside from Trump, that is? I imagine their worst nightmare, or at least one of their worst nightmares, would be a specific demographic of voters leaving their mental slave plantations in droves.
Among these demographics are Hispanics, whom the Left believes belong to them in vote and in mind. The Left, in a rather racist way, somehow believes that all Hispanics hate Trump and that all Hispanics want open borders. That we want more of our “hermanos” and “hermanas” (brothers and sisters, if you didn’t know) flooding this country, building more and larger Hispanic-only communities and changing this country fundamentally from an English-speaking, liberty-loving nation to a Spanish-speaking, welfare-delivering nation. Basically, the Left believes that we want to turn America into Mexico or any other Latin-American country.
Nothing could be further from the truth.
I will get back to this topic momentarily. Right now, I want to share with you the approval ratings for Trump. According to a recent Harvard/Harris poll, President Trump’s approval rating overall sits at a strong 47%, with the main driver for these great numbers being a fantastic 10% rise in Trump approval among Hispanics.
These numbers almost certainly come from the fact that Hispanic unemployment rates are at historic lows and the fact that according to another poll by Economist/YouGov, only 20% of Hispanics support the Obama-era policy of “catch and release”, where instead of detaining people and families crossing the border, they are instructed to report to a hearing at some point in the future, which most people never attend. According to that poll, 64% of Hispanics support the policies we are using now and even the ones we had before under Trump. That is to say that 64% of Hispanics support either detaining the families together or separating the parents from the children.
Surely, these are devastating numbers for the Left. The only reason they pressed Trump so hard about the separation of children at the border is to virtue signal and pretend they are friends of Hispanics. They are not.
They are only friends to illegal immigrants. To those who will vote for them in elections if they can get away with it or if they can make it legal, which is an unconstitutional proposal.
They are only friends to those who are willing to vote for them or rather, who are suckered into voting for them. They pretend to be friends of Hispanics, friends of African Americans, friends of gay people, but the minute any one of them deviates from the slave plantations of Leftist thought, they become the enemy of the Left.
Whenever they see a conservative black man or woman, they have no problem calling them the N-word. Whenever they see a conservative Hispanic, they have no problem making racist remarks. Whenever they see a conservative gay person, they have no problem throwing the F-word at them.
The reason for this is that they have the mentality that these demographics all belong to the Left. They believe black people must vote Democrat, despite the fact that Democrats have gone to war to keep them slaves. They believe Hispanics must vote Democrat for the simple fact that Democrats want open borders and want to bring in more Hispanics. They believe gay people must vote Democrat because they were the ones who fought against the Christian belief that marriage should only be between a man and a woman.
The Left fundamentally believes that all non-white people belong to them. It’s the same old pre-emancipation mentality that they hold. And whenever one of us escapes their plantation, they attack us and call us traitors to the “cause” or traitors to our demographic. They do this to conservative women too.
But when you get down to it, just what is that “cause”? Why are we “traitors” to our demographic? Is that “cause” the cause of turning America less white? First of all, good luck with that. According to a 2017 census, 76.6% of the population in America is White, with African Americans constituting 13.4%, Native Americans 1.3%, Asians 5.8% and Hispanics 18.1%. Second of all, what purpose does it serve to make America less white?
To the Left, making America less white means making America more Leftist and liberal. Again, the Left believes they own the non-white vote. If they can make most of America non-white, that will somehow translate into making America more Leftist.
Everything they do is about race, isn’t it? They’ve demonized white people to the point the New York Times has hired an anti-white racist to their editorial board who wishes to see white people go extinct. The Left simply can’t let go of their racist heritage. It’s in their DNA to hate other people for the slightest deviation in what they consider acceptable.
Now, I promised I would return to the topic of the Left believing Hispanics want to turn America into Mexico or another Latin-American country. As I said, nothing could be further from the truth. Why? Because then what would be the point of leaving those countries for America? What would be the point of spending a lot of hard-earned money to legally move to the United States (which, considering currency differences, is quite difficult) if the objective is turning the U.S. into the “s**thole” we just came from?
My parents and I, for a long time, wanted to come to the United States. Not for the ridiculous purpose of turning it into Argentina (where we’re from) but for the purpose of experiencing life in the land of opportunity. For the purpose of eventually living the American Dream. For the purpose of living in a free land where the Constitution is a set of rules for the government, not the people. Where the government has a basic set of rules of what it can do with and to people. Where it can’t shut down anyone’s free speech, take away anyone’s right to defend themselves, their loved ones and their property.
We wanted to live in a country where the government won’t destroy the economy to the point that it defaults and has to confiscate the money of its citizens (which is literally what happened a little before we left Argentina). We wanted to live in a country that is prosperous. In a country where its economic system is built to lead to prosperity.
Why would we (Hispanics) want to turn America into the countries we left? So it’s really not that surprising to see Hispanics from, say, Cuba, be so adamantly against socialism and communism. They know what those things are, know how bad they are and know that they escaped from it and do not want to experience it again, despite how much these numb-skulls say it is different from how it used to be.
This is why I am not surprised that legal Hispanic Americans are not too fond of illegal immigrants. We do things the right way. We do things legally. They don’t and yet, they still get priority? Not that we want to be prioritized or compensated or anything. But it makes no logical sense to reward the breaking of the law.
I am also not surprised that more and more Hispanics are coming to approve of Trump’s job. He has done far more for the Hispanic and black communities than any Democrat ever has. Although, considering the Democrats fought to keep black people as slaves, they didn’t set the bar too high.
