Have you ever noticed that regular, everyday Americans have more sense in their little finger than all of Congress can muster up during an entire session?  Here’s the latest evidence of that phenomenon:

Voters in 11 battleground states key to controlling the Senate in 2018 and presidency in 2020 overwhelming support the administration’s effort to end so-called “sanctuary” policies for illegal immigrant criminals in over 300 cities, according to a new poll on the explosive issue.

Even more significantly, over 83 percent of Hispanics want the sanctuaries to obey federal demands to cooperate with Immigration and Customs Enforcement and turn over illegals sought for deportation, according to the survey from the Federation for American Immigration Reform.

Yes, you read that correctly, though there’s certainly a reason why you didn’t hear that from the main stream media. The MSM wants to reinforce the idea that President Donald Trump is a racist and therefore, you shouldn’t support him.  But wait, there’s more:

[Americans] also support in similar numbers the right of victims of crime by illegal immigrants to sue sanctuary cities like New York, Philadelphia, Chicago and San Francisco that ignore ICE demands and free criminal illegals.

“The poll shows that Americans want their state and local governments to cooperate with federal efforts to remove criminals from the United States. They demand accountability for these policies from the local governments that make them and they are also prepared to hold their federal officials accountable if they block this much needed legislation from becoming law,” said Dan Stein, president of FAIR.

You can almost see the media wringing their hands. Well, that simply won’t do. Americans, get the narrative right!  We’ve gone over this time and time again: Republicans are racists.  Yes, just ignore how the Democratic party was the party of slavery.  And forget about how Abraham Lincoln freed the slaves.  Whatever.  Now, all you need to know is that Republicans are evil and you oppose everything they try to do by crying out “racism!”  Got it?

For some reason, I don’t think you do.  It’s time to give the power back to “we the people.”
