Conservatives, moderates, and even some who would claim to be on the left support the important work being done every day by law enforcement. However, Biden and the Democrats in Congress have interfered with necessary local police work and thereby unleashed drug-related crime around the country. As Donald Trump said at a rally in Ohio, “We all agree: we’ve got to stop crime. Let our police do their job. We should deport every illegal alien that Joe Biden has unlawfully allowed to break into our country.”
Trump continued, “Drug cartels have seen their revenue skyrocket” under the Biden Administration. “Democrats will defund the police; Republicans will defund the cartels.” As president, Trump “threw illegal gang members out of our country by the thousands.” Referring to the Central American countries from where these gangs come, Trump said, “We’ve got to get countries to take them back” after they initially refused.
In the same speech, Trump recounted that MS-13 gang members in Massachusetts “lured a teenage boy to a playground” by pretending to befriend him, and then stabbed the helpless boy 32 times, to death. An immigration judge had released one of these gang members into the United States and even helped him obtain a green card to stay here.
A drug dealer “will kill on average 500 people,” Trump observed. The “crime wave is caused by drug dealers” and Trump called for use of the death penalty to stop and deter these horrible crimes while “drugs are pouring into our country.” He said, “We will end catch-and-release,” and “end illegal immigration once and for all.”
Those who say that President Trump no longer has his finger on the pulse of the conservative movement have missed the mark. Donald Trump is raising awareness to the issues that no one else wants to talk about, including the vital issue of illegal immigration. If we cannot secure our border, there is no way to implement the principle of law and order that all law-abiding Americans are entitled to live under. Chief among the responsibilities of any government is to protect the citizens of that government from lawless violations of their rights. Let’s get back to basics and preserve law and order.
