New Poll Shows Americans Support President Trump’s Immigration Policies
“The Schumer Shutdown Was A Result Of One Thing: Democrats Misread The American People”
WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator David Perdue (R-GA) spoke with Steve Doocy on Fox News Channel’s Fox and Friends about a new poll showing that Americans overwhelmingly support President Trump’s efforts to fix our legal immigration system, including increasing border security, eliminating the outdated visa lottery, ending chain migration, and resolving the DACA situation.
Misreading The American People: “The Schumer Shutdown was a result of one thing: Democrats misread the American people.”
Four Parameters: “The President has been very consistent all along. He said he wants a compassionate solution to the DACA situation and any solution has got to include border security with the wall, an end of chain migration, and an end to this visa lottery.”
New Poll is Proof: “This poll is a great illustration of where the Democrats are out of touch with the American people. 80% of America wants border security and over two thirds want a DACA solution to include border security with a wall, an end of chain migration, and an end to this visa lottery. All along, the President’s instincts about this have been right.”
Securing The Border: “There is symmetry here. Both sides want to end the visa lottery. Both sides want to solve the border security issue, and the President has proven he is right over and over again that a wall is necessary to do that.”
Ongoing Negotiations: “The President has been very engaged on this issue. I was at the White House this week, along with Democrats in different meetings. We have a road map that we believe not only will pass the Senate, but also pass the House.”
Senator Perdue is the only Fortune 500 CEO in Congress and is serving his first term in the United States Senate, where he represents Georgia on the Armed Services, Banking, Budget, and Agriculture Committees.
Senator David Perdue Recaps This Year’s Results, Previews 2018 on Fox News
ATLANTA, GA – U.S. Senator David Perdue (R-GA) spoke with Mike Emanuel on Fox News’ Special Report about President Trump’s significant accomplishments during his first year in office and the priorities heading into 2018.
Delivering Results: “President Trump laid out four agenda items this year. We accomplished most of them. President Trump wants to continue to get results. The economy is going to move now that we started regulatory work and with the tax bill we just passed.”
Early Success: “The President is working diligently to get ready for 2018, but he is very happy with the results of 2017. His first year in office we saw 2 million new jobs created, 860 rules and regulations being reversed, illegal crossings down 60%, 500 people have been fired at the Veterans Administration for non-performance. The President is very excited about the future of our country now that we’re moving to get the economy going again.”
Business Focus: “We have a business guy in the White House for a change. He is moving at a business place, not a bureaucratic pace. Look, 2018 is an election year, but we have different leadership in the White House. He is not going to waive off his priorities for an election process.”
Immigration Solution: “President Trump, Senator Tom Cotton, and I have been consistently saying that any solution for DACA has to include an end to this archaic chain migration and money for border security and the wall at our southern border.”
Helping American Workers: “That’s what’s wrong with Washington, career politicians don’t understand how the free enterprise system works. The best thing we can do for the American worker, the American consumer, for anyone who works in America is to help our businesses, large and small, become competitive again with the rest of the world.”
Breaking The Gridlock: “The problem in Washington is gridlock. The minority party is causing that right now, but there are signs of encouragement. Frankly, the immigration issue is one that should have a bipartisan solution. We believe we can do that early in the new year. The President is going to keep focused on that as we get back to work next week.”
Senator David Perdue: This Is The Capstone On A Very Successful Year
“I believe a lot of people woke up this morning and realized America is back in business again”
WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator David Perdue (R-GA) joined Bloomberg TV’s What’d You Miss to discuss the historic changes to the tax code that have been sent to President Trump’s desk to provide relief to middle-class families and make America more competitive again.
A Year Of Accomplishments: “This is the capstone on a very successful year of the Trump Administration. President Trump said job one was getting the economy going. He pulled back 860 rules and regulations, released our energy potential and now we have these historic tax cuts. This tax plan is going to bring relief to working men and women and make American businesses more competitive again around the world.”
Proof Is In The Results: “From before the plan was even finalized, you’ve had messaging from the other side with many points of misinformation. The real tell-tale sign here is when Americans get their paychecks in February and when they see jobs created. They’re going to see the impact of this bill. The person who is going to benefit the most from this is the person that gets a job. Americans will begin to see the reality and we’re going to continue to tell the truth about what we just did.”
Combating Misinformation: “The misinformation out there can be corrected with a few simple facts. A family of four making the median income of $73,000 will see a 60% tax cut. A working mother, making the median income of $41,000 will see a 75% tax cut in this bill. These will be proven as this plan goes into effect.”
Back In Business: “We are making American businesses competitive with the rest of the world. I believe a lot of people woke up this morning and realized America is back in business again. I give President Trump and his Administration all the credit for that.”
Growing Confidence: “You’re going to see many more examples of corporate confidence. Right now, CEO confidence is at a 20 year high. Not only that, consumer confidence is at 16 year high because Americans believe President Trump was listening to them in last year’s election and is delivering on his promises. I believe the American people responded very strongly to that.”
