The panelists on MSNBC’s Morning Joe were recently dumbstruck when forced to admit that most American agree with President Trump about immigration and how the process should be handled.
Of course, the only person on the show willing to express the possibility that the American people likely agree with Republicans about something was Joe Scarborough, himself a former GOP congressman (and former Republican).
In a short bit of commentary he reminds his fellow talking heads that on issues like chain migration, the migration lottery, and on merit-based immigration, most Americans side with Donald Trump and the GOP.
“Lot of people in the media may not like it. I talk about this massive disconnect between where Americans are on immigration and where the media is on immigration, where elites are on immigration. Most Americans agree with Donald Trump and Stephen Miller’s view of immigration.
Whether you want to call it chain migration. Whether you want to talk about the lottery, whether you want to talk about only wanting highly skilled immigrants in this country. There have been a lot of polls out over the past couple weeks and none of them are good news for Democrats.
Don’t shoot the messenger, read the polls, most Americans are far closer to Stephen Miller’s views on immigration than they are Nancy Pelosi. That’s just the political reality if you look at the polls.”
