The more Democrats insist on abolishing ICE, the more Democrats are turning 2018 into the ‘Immigration Election’. It isn’t that people won’t care about the increasing prosperity. It’s that women will care more about the dangers represented by MS-13, the opioid crisis and the human trafficking crisis.

According to this op-ed, there’s a solution to these crises. Unfortunately for Democrats, they steadfastly reject that solution.

Brandon Judd’s op-ed opens by saying “If Democrats and the media elite truly cared about the safety of illegal immigrants, they’d be down on the border right now working to build the wall President Trump wants America to have. As a veteran Border Patrol agent, I know firsthand that a secure border with the big beautiful wall the president is building is the only humane and permanent solution to the crisis at the border.”

Democrats keep pushing the message that Republicans are tearing illegal aliens’ families apart. Republicans have started pushing the stories that angel families are getting torn apart thanks to MS-13, drug cartels and opioid overdoses. Let’s not kid ourselves. Suburban moms won’t like it that their friends’ kids are dying as a result of the Democrats’ unwillingness to build the wall.

Despite Democratic obstruction, President Trump is building the wall now, and he will play hardball with Congress to ensure that the necessary funding to complete the wall is secured. Without a completed wall, thousands of illegal immigrants will continue to put their lives at risk.

As long as people think they can cross the border illegally, they will continue to try. The journey is dangerous enough due to the natural conditions alone. Traveling hundreds or even thousands of miles on foot, often in extreme heat and without adequate water, is no easy trip for an adult – let alone for a child.

But those who try to cross our southern border illegally are subject to much worse than just the elements – they are at the mercy of brutal criminal gangs. The illegal immigrant smuggling trade is dominated by predatory “coyotes” connected to Mexico’s worst drug cartels. They care little for the lives of their human cargo. These are the sorts of people who don’t think twice before leaving illegal immigrants to die in locked trailers under the desert sun.

Democrats feel compelled to disagree with everything President Trump. It isn’t smart policywise but it’s the Democrats’ foolishness. That’s just who they are. The closer we get to the election, the more Democrats will see people shift away from their candidates.

I’m not surprised. Stupid policies make for terrible politicking. You don’t get much more stupid than abolishing ICE.
