The Political Insider
A new poll by Rasmussen Reports shows that a large majority of voters believe that former President Trump’s immigration policies were better than President Joe Biden’s.
According to the polls, 51 percent of voters are more positive about Trump’s immigration policy, compared to just 32 percent who think Biden’s chaotic border scene is better.
Only 11 percent think the two immigration policies are roughly the same.
The poll seems heavily weighted by the recent humanitarian crisis that involved Haitian migrants on the Del Rio-Acuna International Bridge, where thousands of people once lived in appalling conditions.

Trump’s immigration policy better than Biden
Earlier this week, Minister of Homeland Security Alejandro Mayorkas admitted that the vast majority of Haitian migrants had been released to the United States.
“About, I think it’s about 10,000 or so, 12,000,” Mayorkas said as he urged how many migrants were released. “It could be higher. The number that is returned could be even higher. “

The Haitian migrant crisis is clearly fresh in the minds of voters.
“Voters disagree with President Joe Biden’s administration’s decision to release more than 12,000 Haitian migrants into the United States,” Rasmussen writes, “and a majority now say that former President Donald Trump’s immigration policy is better.”

Better off with Trump
Laredo’s Mayor Pete Saenz, a Democrat, says things went better under Trump than under President Biden.
“We really need to secure the border,” Saenz told the Washington Free Beacon. “It worked under Trump, you name it what you want to call it, but it worked.”
Saenz proposed to the current president to implement a “virtual wall” using advanced surveillance technology at the border.
“If Biden doesn’t come out with a virtual wall implementation, people here will be begging for a wall, a physical structure, simply because he ignores the limit and especially the size of these waves,” he said.
He admitted that walls work because they “deter, or at least gain, law enforcement time, so to speak”.
