Majority of Republican voters want GOP presidential primary contenders to focus on reducing crime and ending illegal immigration at the US-Mexico border, a new poll found.
According to a New York Times/Siena College survey, 65 percent of Republican primary voters are more inclined to support a presidential candidate in 2024 who “focuses on restoring law and order in our streets and at the border.”
For instance, just 43% of Republican primary voters said they would support a presidential candidate who promised to lower corporate taxes, while only 24% said they would support a candidate who “focuses on defeating radical ‘woke' ideology in our schools, media, and culture.”
Similarly, nearly 6-in-10 Republican voters reject amnesty for illegal aliens, even when the subject is framed as “comprehensive immigration reform,” while less than 4-in-10 GOP voters support amnesty.
According to the study, Republicans are most popular with people when they emphasize on the plethora of quality of life concerns, as well as the resultant economics, that emerge from crime and illegal immigration in American neighborhoods.
According to new data from 30 American cities, killings this year are 24 percent more than in 2019, while vehicle theft has surged in recent years. Although crime lowers the standard of living for working and middle-class Americans, illegal immigration puts pressure on social safety nets and lowers wages.
More than 2.1 million illegal aliens have been directly released into American communities since President Joe Biden entered office, and 1.5 million illegal aliens are known to have successfully crossed the border.
The arrival of millions of new people to the United States every few years, as well as over a million legal immigrants, drives up housing costs and spreads the nation's limited supply of homes and apartments even thinner.
Mayor Eric Adams (D) claimed this week that New York City, with a population of over nine million people, had “no more room” to host the tens of thousands of border crossers and illegal aliens who have landed on its borders since last year.
