Morgan also shared additional details about what lies ahead for those who work along the Southern border:
“We’re anticipating a million [illegal immigrants] this year, but we’re going to allow 65% of those individuals into the interior of the United States.”
Controversy Regarding Illegal Immigration
Illegal immigration maintains as a highly controversial, divisive subject matter. Many conservatives and others on the right-wing view illegal entry into the United States as problematic. Americans who lean right of center are also likelier to favor merit-based immigration.
Merit-based immigration is a measure which Democrats have censured as racist. The left-wing generally places more focused on why illegal immigrants enter the country unlawfully, as opposed to the crime itself. Democrats also support amnesty and a path to citizenship for illegal immigrants who are already in America.
Over the past year, Democrats have called for the abolition of ICE. This prompted massive backlash from Republicans and conservatives. Those who favor ICE note the role which the organization plays in enforcing immigration laws.
