Limbaugh: If POTUS Trump shuts down the border, builds the wall, ‘no Dem can beat him in 2020’

By Jon Dougherty

Talk radio giant Rush Limbaugh on Thursday discussed POTUS Donald Trump’s latest threat to shut down the U.S.-Mexico border in order to deal with rising numbers of illegal aliens who are stretching border and customs’ resources past the breaking point, noting that if he were to do that and build portions of a wall, he would become unbeatable next year.

In an interview with another talk show behemoth, Sean Hannity, on the latter’s Fox News program, Limbaugh said that the president has to “zero in on immigration,” despite POTUS’ desire for the “Republican Party to become known as the party of health care” instead, hitting on an issue near and dear to voters’ hearts in 2018.

“[Health care] is a tangible thing that really matters to every human being,” he said.

However, Limbaugh notes that Trump was elected primarily on a platform to build a border wall and to address illegal immigration and all of its ancillary issues like sanctuary cities, birthright citizenship, and so forth.

Limbaugh went onto note that the U.S. halted most immigration in the 1920s in an effort to assimilate the millions who had come largely from Europe.

But that’s not happening today, the host noted. “We have a political party [Democrats] opening the border for illegal immigrants to come … what happened to the rule of law?” said Limbaugh.

“I think the president should shut the border. If he shuts the border and builds the wall, Sean, there is nobody that can beat him in 2020. [Immigration] remains the issue for the vast majority of freedom-loving, Constitution-loving, American-loving citizens.”

If immigration isn’t checked, Limbaugh said, “there’s always going to be an America, but it’s not going to remain a constitutional republic as founded.”

Watch:

On Thursday, we published a story highlighting new research from the University of Alabama proves most immigrants, as well as first- and second-generation Americans, support Democrats in the polls.

In a paper titled, “Immigration Status, Immigrant Family Ties, and Support for the Democratic Party,” researcher George Hawley used data from the 2016 Cooperative Congressional Election Study to determine immigrant voting patterns and whether ” immigration status itself is a predictor of Democratic Party affiliation and vote choice, even controlling for other attributes.

After creating “single- and multilevel models of party affiliation and vote choice” using the Harvard CCES model, Hawley found that “immigration status was a statistically significant and substantively important predictor of Democratic affiliation.”

Hawley also noted that the same was true for children and grandchildren of immigrants, but that ties to the Donkey Party “weakened over multiple generations.”

For now, Hawley said, Republicans hold the White House, a decent majority in the Senate and a majority of state legislatures. That, he said, likely won’t be the case for much longer given demographic trends.

“It has become conventional wisdom that the growing immigrant population, and the resulting large nonwhite population more generally, will eventually usher in a new period of Democratic hegemony,” he wrote.

I totally agree. If Trump wants to win, enforcing our immigration laws is the way to do it. Our last 5 Presidents refused to enforce our immigration laws, leading up to the estimated 30-50 M illegal aliens presently in the US. Nobody really knows the true number as more keep pouring in daily. We have been sold out by BOTH political parties on the immigration issue. Both have sold their soul and their country for money, power and votes. We have no one standing up for us other than Trump and a few others. We are not entitled to healthcare… Read more »

I keep hearing that much of the border wall has been built and more is going up every day, but then I also keep hearing that illegal migrants continue to pour into our country proving that the wall must be built. Please clarify the status of the border wall, Mr. President. What areas remain without a border wall that is allowing illegals to pass through? I want the wall to be built. I agree that a border wall is absolutely necessary for the safety of the American people, but rhetoric regarding funding the wall continues month after month with no… Read more »

Trump has been compromised by listening to and hiring numerous globalist establishment swamp dwellers, including his giraffe necked skank feminist democrat daughter and her sissie boy husband. Trump and the Republicans had control of congress and the White House and did nothing. They are spending us into ruin by debt. The open borders globalist Republicans and Dems have flooded us with third world illiterate peasants who are turning us into a cesspool.

I’ll admit I was against shutting down immigration entirely at first. Ive always been for the wall and reforming immigration law. I have to say now though, given the sharp increase in people, and caravans of people trying to get in, it just may be time to shut down the whole border until we can get a handle on things financially and get legal immigration reformed.
