Democrats Are Losing The Immigration Debate As Trump Escalates Deportations. A Liberal think tank has warned that Democrats are losing the war on media messaging by appearing soft on enforcement.
More importantly the Democrats seem to be at odds with their own party even 4 years ago under Obama. By undermining Obama’s positions Democrats not only look weak but hypocritical.
While much of this is fueled far the far left encroaching on the Democratic party it can mostly be attributed to a lack of real charisma and leadership on the Democratic side.
Meanwhile Trump is rapidly escalating deportation and restricting new asylum claims. However there is still risk to Trump as his rhetoric on the “the squad,” or Ocasio-Cortez and Ilhan omars group, has gotten too hot for the “moral market” watchers who may turn on Trump come 2020.
