Concerns rise among republicans over trade and immigration

CNSNews.com reported that Americans are growing increasingly concerned over U.S. immigration policies and trade and the failure of Washington politicians to address these issues.

Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.) said the concern about trade and about immigration have expanded and U.S. citizens are in an uproar over it.

“They’ve asked their politicians to fix the immigration system for 30 years and they’ve refused,” Sessions said at the event, sponsored by Americans for Limited Government (ALG). “They’ve expressed concern for 30 years over trade.”

 

More raids and more fear stir up arguments in political debates

This year, U.S. immigration officials arrested 336 young people in raids in an attempt to send a message to Central Americans to avoid a repeat of the 2014 crisis when tens of thousands of children from Central America arrived at the U.S. border, reported The Los Angeles Times.

This set off many protests from the allies of immigration and swept fear through Hispanic communities.

Hilary Clinton and Sen. Bernie Sanders argued at the Democratic debate in Miami on Wednesday over who had better immigration reform policies, but ultimately they both were not in support of the arrests.

 

Republicans address immigration

At the Thursday Republican presidential debates, Sen. Ted Cruz and Donald Trump both addressed needs for redefining our immigration system–building a bigger wall, add more border patrols and put a pause on green cards, reported Fox News Latino.

Florida Sen. Marco Rubio received the most applause when he slammed the U.S.’s thawing of relations with Cuba.

“The only thing that has changed is that the Cuban government has millions more dollars … Cuba and its rulers remain an anti-American, communist regime.”
