One way to gauge how the upcoming presidential election is going is to track the lefts actions regarding illegal immigration. If they sense a victory for the Democrat (or even a squishy Republican), we’re likely to see the status quo continue. But it’s when the “right” (or wrong, depending on your perspective) Republican starts gaining momentum, gaining support from voters – this is when the left will start freaking out and ramping up the hysteria with not only outrageous claims against the right, but proposed preemptive legislative action.
So, rather than relying on polls and pundits to tell us who is winning, and how to think of what’s been said or done, watch for the actions of the left. Watch what they do – follow their wacky legislative proposals, not just nationally, but within majority democrat states.
This is how we should gauge the mood of the left. This is how we tell whether they think they are winning or losing. And, at least so far, it appears they believe they are losing on the issue of illegals. Case in point.
There are more than 200 sanctuary cities and counties in the United States “that protect criminal aliens from deportation.” These jurisdictions have “policies, laws, executive orders, or regulations that impede open communication and information exchanges” between local, state and federal law enforcement.
