69 Percent of Hispanics Disapprove of Biden Administration’s Handling of Immigration

Respondents say Biden’s handling of deportations of illegal aliens is not aggressive enough

A Quinnipiac poll released shows an overwhelming 69 percent of Hispanics disapprove of Biden’s handling of immigration, with only 23 percent approving. Respondents say Biden’s handling of deportations of illegal aliens is not aggressive enough.

Specifically, 41 percent say deportations are not aggressive enough, and only 20 percent of Hispanics say Biden has been “acting appropriately.”

“Many Hispanic Americans seem to believe that the Haitian migrants who illegally crossed the border last week are entitled to a chance to prove the merit of their asylum claims, as some may be fleeing persecution stemming from political turmoil or social unrest in addition to lack of economic opportunity or instability,” writes National Review.

National Review explains an “asylum seeker differs from a refugee in that the former is granted asylum status after entering the country or while seeking admission at a port of entry while a refugee obtains admission while outside the country.”

“While the Quinnipiac poll suggests not quite half of Hispanics want to ramp up deportations of illegal immigrants, 48 percent disagree with the Biden administration deporting Haitian migrants specifically without allowing them to first seek asylum.”

The same Quinnipiac poll shows Biden received a negative score on the entire issue of Immigration on which 25 percent approve and 67 percent disapprove. More than half of Americans, 55 percent, say the Biden administration is not competent in running the government.

Biden Energy Secretary Subject of Ethics Complaint for Promoting Electric Company She Held $1.6 Million in Stock

President Biden’s Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm has received an ethics complaint for promoting an electric bus company she sat on the board of and held over a million dollars of stock in. She did so all while being a part of the executive branch in Biden’s administration.

Breitbart reports Granholm, “who oversees moving the country toward an electric vehicle transportation system and enjoys newfound powers after the passage of Biden’s infrastructure package — is facing scrutiny for promoting Proterra, a Burlingame, California-based electric bus company she sat on the board of and held 240,520 shares of stock in, which garnered her $1.6 million when she finally divested them 157 days after her nomination.”

Critics say Granholm has promoted Proterra in her official capacity as energy secretary and for hyping grant access to companies with connections to Proterra. Additionally, they say Granholm’s promotion of Proterra has increased its visibility and therefore the value of her stock before she was required to sell her shares due to ethics rules.

As of Monday, the company had a market cap of $2.6 billion. Granholm also promoted Burlingame, a California electric vehicle company, at the same time “Democrats in Congress were crafting – and ultimately passing – Biden’s $1.2 trillion infrastructure package, which dramatically increases Granholm’s authority as energy secretary to advance private sector companies in the transition to an electric vehicle-based transportation infrastructure” reports Breitbart.

The infrastructure package “grants as much as $174 billion to green vehicles and $456 billion to zero-emission buses to ‘replace 50,000 diesel transit vehicles and electrify at least 20 percent of our yellow school bus fleet’ and ‘to build a national network of 500,000 EV chargers by 2030.”

Breitbart reports:

Granholm’s involvement with Proterra started in March of 2017 when the company announced she would be joining its board ostensibly due to her experience with the automotive sector when she served as Michigan’s governor from 2003 to 2011. Proterra hoped to use Granholm’s “track record for producing a high-quality clean energy and transportation workforce in the Midwest” to launch the company into the “next phase of strategic growth and national deployment,” its press release explained. During her time on the board, Granholm supplemented her considerable income by simultaneously serving on the boards and consulting for various left-wing organizations as well, such as American Bridge PAC and Media Matters.
