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.

Historic House Vote Expels Rep. George Santos Amidst Scandal
In a turn of events, the House of Representatives made history on Friday with a vote to expel Rep. George Santos (R-N.Y.), marking the first such expulsion in over two decades. A moment fraught with gravity unfolded as Speaker Mike Johnson wielded his gavel to formalize Santos’ removal, setting a precedent in congressional annals.
Santos, indicted on 23 counts related to wire fraud, identity theft, and other charges, has not faced conviction but stands accused of misusing campaign funds for opulent purchases. The bipartisan vote, tallying 311 to 114, signaled robust support for expulsion, with a marginally higher number of Republicans opting to retain Santos.
Questions loomed as Speaker Johnson left the chamber, his silence leaving the fate of the ongoing government spending battle uncertain. According to reports from Fox News, Democratic Rep. Steny Hoyer emphasized the non-partisan nature of the decision, asserting that members concluded Santos had tarnished the House’s reputation and was unfit for representation.
Within the GOP, conflicting opinions emerged, with Rep. Darrell Issa arguing against expulsion, citing the presumption of innocence. The tight-lipped stance of the House Ethics Committee played a pivotal role in the deliberations.
Conversely, members of the New York Republican delegation, led by Rep. Marc Molinaro, asserted Santos’ commission of crimes, justifying expulsion based on a comprehensive investigation.
Santos himself predicted the outcome in an exclusive morning interview on “FOX & Friends.” This vote not only underlines the House’s rare use of expulsion powers but also sets a critical precedent in handling members facing severe legal challenges.
