Is border security a ‘winning issue’ for the Republican party heading into the 2020 election?

Last Friday, a federal judge temporarily blocked the Trump administration’s plan to construct a wall on the U.S.-Mexico border with Defense Department funds.

As reported by Fox News, U.S. District Court Judge Haywood Gilliam’s ruling halts the administration from using the reallocated funds for projects in specific areas in Texas and Arizona. Trump declared a national emergency in February to redirect funding from the Department of Defense to begin construction.

Border security has arguably been the most controversial issue for Republicans and Democrats during the Trump presidency.

WIBC host Tony Katz argued during an appearance on Fox News this weekend that border security is absolutely a winning issue for Republicans, adding that while Democrats have done their share of political posturing on the matter, the reality is that they have no plan whatsoever to stem the flow of illegal immigrants crossing into the United States illegally.


“Illegal immigration is a problem. [Republicans] are the ones who have come in with a plan to do something about illegal immigration. You don’t have to like it, but democrats have failed to put forth a plan for dealing with the problem that is acceptable to them. Donald Trump put forth a plan, and according to Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, if you bring the plan, you’re the boss. Donald Trump is the boss.”
