New Poll Shows Americans Support President Trump’s Immigration Policies
“The Schumer Shutdown Was A Result Of One Thing: Democrats Misread The American People”
WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator David Perdue (R-GA) spoke with Steve Doocy on Fox News Channel’s Fox and Friends about a new poll showing that Americans overwhelmingly support President Trump’s efforts to fix our legal immigration system, including increasing border security, eliminating the outdated visa lottery, ending chain migration, and resolving the DACA situation.
Misreading The American People: “The Schumer Shutdown was a result of one thing: Democrats misread the American people.”
Four Parameters: “The President has been very consistent all along. He said he wants a compassionate solution to the DACA situation and any solution has got to include border security with the wall, an end of chain migration, and an end to this visa lottery.”
New Poll is Proof: “This poll is a great illustration of where the Democrats are out of touch with the American people. 80% of America wants border security and over two thirds want a DACA solution to include border security with a wall, an end of chain migration, and an end to this visa lottery. All along, the President’s instincts about this have been right.”
Securing The Border: “There is symmetry here. Both sides want to end the visa lottery. Both sides want to solve the border security issue, and the President has proven he is right over and over again that a wall is necessary to do that.”
Ongoing Negotiations: “The President has been very engaged on this issue. I was at the White House this week, along with Democrats in different meetings. We have a road map that we believe not only will pass the Senate, but also pass the House.”
Senator Perdue is the only Fortune 500 CEO in Congress and is serving his first term in the United States Senate, where he represents Georgia on the Armed Services, Banking, Budget, and Agriculture Committees.
