 Trump repeatedly pushed the new slogan Building a Wall and Decreasing Crime Rate


The Republican Party is very united to curb crime and drugs thoroughly! Border security and the separation wall. No doubt!

Build a wall, crime rate drops! (BUILDAWALL & CRIMEWILLFALL) This is a new Republican theme for the next two years, until the separation wall (under construction) is completed. Use this slogan and pray for it!

Two minutes later, Trump issued a new slogan: Build a wall, crime rate drops!

Six hours later, Trump was surprised to find that MSNBC, a worse media than CNN, also released a video clip of immigrants illegally entering the United States from the US-Mexico border. He tweeted again:

Build a wall, crime rate drops! Even MSNBC, who hates Trump, admits you.

Trump seemed quite proud of the new slogan. The New York Times quoted a senior assistant to the president on January 23 as saying that Trump himself invented the slogan and attributed it to his marketing genius.

However, the American media quickly grasped Trumps handle and began to correct him. They also said that this sentence was completely old-fashioned and had no new meaning.

The New York Times first questioned the under construction of the barrier, saying that the current situation was that the Customs and Border Protection Agency had started or completed several projects to replace the old barrier with new ones, but no additional walls had been built. In addition, Texas will build a new levee from February, the first expansion of the existing barrier.

Secondly, although the rhyme of building a wall and decreasing crime rate is very rhyming, there is not enough evidence to support this view.

Previously, Robert Adelman, a sociologist at the State University of New York at Buffalo, led four universities to compare immigration and crime rates in 200 regions across the United States over the past few decades, including large cities like New York or smaller manufacturing centers.

The results showed that 136 of the investigated areas (about 70%) had increased the immigrant population between 1980 and 2016, while the crime rate remained stable or declined. In 2016, crime rates in the 10 regions with the largest increase in immigration were lower than in 1980.

The Cato Institute, a libertarian think tank, analyzed data from Texas in 2015 and concluded that the crime rate of illegal immigrants was even lower than that of native Americans. In Texas, in 2015, the conviction rate for homicide for native-born Americans was 31 per 100,000, for illegal immigrants it was 26 per 100,000, and for legal immigrants it was 1 per 100,000.

The Washington Posts new slogan, directed at Trump, is a repeat of his old immigration threat theory. Trump has been stirring up fear of illegal immigration in the United States for many years. The new slogan is Trumps ingenious packaging of his border wall, aimed at increasing his chances of re-election in 2020.

Although Trump still slammed the Democrats on the issue of wall-building, he was hit by a series of latest polls in the United States.

According to the latest CBS poll, 66% of respondents expect Trump to pass the budget without building a wall, while 31% of respondents expect him to pass the budget without building a wall.

The latest polls by the Associated Press and the National Center for Public Opinion (NORC) show that the closure of the government has brought Trumps support rate to its lowest level in a year. Thirty-four percent of Americans agreed with Trumps performance, down from 42 percent a month ago, near the lowest point in his two-year presidency. The overwhelming majority of Americans blame Trump for the record suspension of the federal government and disagree with his reasons for building the border wall.

According to a recent survey by politico and Morning Consult, 54% of voters blame Trump and Republicans for the closure of the government. Only 35% blame Congressional Democrats.

On the 34th day of the partial closure of the federal government, Congress voted on two bills, one supported by Senate Majority Leader John McConnell, to finance Trumps border wall and reopen the government. The bill proposes temporary protection measures for immigrants in exchange for $5.7 billion in border wall funds. Another bill, proposed by Democrats and previously passed by the House of Representatives, calls for the first reopening of the government without new funding for the border wall. However, CNN pointed out that although both sides agreed to vote, both bills are expected to fail, and the deadlock in closing the government is still not at an end. Politicians, on the other hand, have not yet seen enough concessions from both sides, and it is difficult to get 60 votes in the Senate (60 votes to move forward) on either bill.
