Lisa Boothe: ‘The Democratic Party Continues to Prioritize Illegal Immigrants over American Citizens’

‘There’s a political calculus for President Trump making immigration such a big issue heading into the midterm elections’

EXCERPT:

BOOTHE: “It's also becoming a political issue and I think this is going to be one of the defining issues of the 2018 midterm elections and I actually think it works to President Trump’s and Republicans' advantage here because there is nothing driving out opposition for the Republican Party. Okay, you're content with the economy, does that mean you’re going to turn out? No. But if you're angry over illegal immigration, you're angry that the Democratic Party continues to prioritize illegal immigrants over American citizens, then that’s going to drive you out and that's going to turn you out to vote. So I actually think there’s a political calculus to President Trump making immigration such a big issue heading into the midterm elections.”
