(DailyVantage.com) – A political action committee (PAC) aligned with the presidential campaign of former President Donald Trump is aiming at the issue of border security, a top policy issue for Republican voters concerned with immigration ahead of the 2024 Republican primary elections. The new campaign ad from Make America Great Again Inc. attacked President Biden for the ongoing border security issues relating to illegal immigration, drug and human trafficking, and deadly fentanyl.
The ad asserts that Trump is dominating the Republican race because of his work to secure the border as president. Furthermore, Trump’s new immigration plan, while not highlighted in the ad, would create new immigration restrictions and increase enforcement of current immigration laws. As President, Trump intends to block communists from entering the United States, use the Coast Guard and Navy to form a blockade, ban immigration from more than a dozen countries, designate drug cartels as enemy combatants, end birthright citizenship, extend floating barriers in the Rio Grande, deport migrant gang members, and complete construction of the border wall.
FiveThirtyEight aggregate polling shows a dominating lead for Trump, with almost 40 points on runner-up Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, 52.2% to 14.5%. Entrepreneur Vivek Ramaswamy holds 8.9%, and all other candidates are below 5%, including RNC debate qualifying candidates former Vice President Mike Pence at 4.1%, South Carolina Sen. Tim Scott at 3.5%, former South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley at 3.4%, former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie at 3.3%, former Arkansas Gov. Asa Hutchinson at 0.7%, and North Dakota Gov. Doug Burgum at 0.4%.
For those passionate about border security and immigration, which is a top issue for Republican voters, Trump remains the first choice due to his hardline stance on border security and immigration restrictions that would help curb demographic transition change. While illegal immigration is a top concern, curtailing legal immigration could be controversial among some parts of the Republican Party while appealing to other voters.
