Biden approval rating among Hispanic voters has ‘plummeted’

There is a huge immigration crisis at our border, and the Biden administration’s turn a blind eye to illegal migrants crossing then border is not translating into votes from the hispanic community.

“President Biden’s approval rating among Hispanics has plummeted as the historically Democratic bloc’s support for Republicans continues to increase, presenting an electoral problem for Democrats, whose immigration policies have fueled much of this shift” reports Just the News.

According to a a Quinnipiac poll released last week, only 26% of Hispanic voters approve of Biden’s job performance, compared to 54% who disapprove.

A staggering 41% of Hispanic voters “strongly disapprove” of Biden’s handling of the presidency, while just 12% “strongly approve.”

Hispanics represent the country’s second largest voting bloc by ethnicity.

A downward trend in Hispanic support for Biden has been ongoing for months. Biden comfortably won the Hispanic vote in 2020 with 59%, according to the Pew Research Center.

“Since then, however, Hispanic support for the president has plummeted, reaching the 30s last year and now the 20s. Even polling finding a higher approval rating for Biden among Hispanics today still shows a 20-plus-point drop over the past year” adds Just the News.

There may also be an entire shift away from the Democratic Party as a whole for the Hispanic voting population.

Just the News’ research uncovered:

The National Republican Congressional Committee’s Battleground Survey Project, for example, found that Republicans have made substantial gains among Hispanic voters since the 2020 elections, narrowing the gap by almost 20 percentage points.

Other polling has shown Hispanics evenly split between Democrats and Republicans, a seismic shift from what was once a lopsided balance in favor of Democrats.

Even polling finding a less dramatic shift still shows Hispanics are now migrating across party lines to the GOP.

One sign of this shift manifesting in electoral politics was last year’s Virginia gubernatorial race. Glenn Youngkin, the Republican victor, won the Hispanic vote by about a dozen points, once an unthinkable margin.

Polling has shown a strong majority of Americans — and upwards of 70% of Hispanics — are increasing in disapproval how Biden is handling immigration specifically, including of the southern border.

“The Biden administration’s tone-deaf pandering has completely backfired,” said Anna Paulina Luna, a Hispanic-American of Mexican descent who’s running for Congress in Florida’s 13th District. “Hispanics on border towns are especially frustrated with the irresponsible messaging of the current administration regarding illegal immigration and open borders.”

The mayor of one such town near the border, Uvalde, Texas, said he believes the situation at the border will cause many Democrats to vote for Republicans in November.

“I think you’re going see a lot of people that would normally go Democrat … vote red,” Mayor Don McLaughlin told the “Just the News, Not Noise” television program, noting Democrats don’t want to discuss the border at all.

“By ending Title 42, President Biden welcomes an influx of migrants to the U.S. that our system is not prepared to handle,” Rep. Maria Salazar (R-Fla.) told Just the News this week. “He has no plan to solve the issue at our southern border, and it’s hitting my community — the Hispanic American community — the hardest.”

“We Latinos don’t want open borders,” she added. “We want safety for our families, order at the border, and a growing economy.”

    Most people from Central America and South America, ( NONE of them Hispanic!NONE from SPAIN! They barely speak a “””related language close to Spanish! ELAN MUSK is a REAL AFRICAN AMERICAN!!! Being from South Africa!) are repulsed at the idea of a socialist regime they have abandoned leaving their country! They are tired of the corruption, the tyranny, the lack of jobs, future in their old countries!
    Now they come to the US where they have to abort, quit believe in GOD, suffer the same treatment with their “””coyotes””” and rape, violence from the drug cartels pushing them to transport the drugs!
    They die on the way. Although soros paid huge sums to help them get to the US border!

NY Lawmakers want to tax tech giants to get $500M to fund unemployment benefits for illegal migrants

New York lawmakers are debating over a proposed Democratic initiative that would pave the way for a multibillion-dollar fund designed to provide unemployment benefits for illegal immigrants. Spearheaded by state Senator Jessica Ramos, a Queens Democrat, the proposal has ignited passionate discussions within the Senate Finance Committee, where it currently awaits further deliberation.

The Center Square reports the proposal would utilize a $500 million trust fund earmarked specifically to offer jobless benefits for individuals who find themselves ineligible for traditional unemployment payments and other public assistance programs. To finance this ambitious endeavor, proponents of the plan are advocating for the imposition of a novel tax targeting tech behemoths like Google and Amazon. This tax, aimed at digital advertising revenue, is projected to generate hundreds of millions of dollars to sustain the fund.

Ramos has alluded to her belief that migrants are a fundamental contribution to the state’s economy. Despite their authorization to work, payment of taxes, and active involvement in the labor force, undocumented immigrants face a glaring disparity—they are excluded from accessing vital safety nets like unemployment benefits if they lose their jobs.

In a social media post, Ramos cited the expiration of federal unemployment insurance for freelancers and the depletion of the Excluded Workers Fund. She argues vehemently for a safety net aligned with the evolving dynamics of the labor market, one that extends support to all workers, regardless of their immigration status.

The proposed fund, aptly named the Unemployment Bridge Program, outlines comprehensive eligibility criteria encompassing a spectrum of marginalized workers—from undocumented migrants to freelancers and individuals recently released from incarceration or immigrant detention. By establishing clear guidelines and procedures, the program endeavors to streamline the application process, ensuring equitable access to unemployment benefits for those in need.

The initiative comes in the wake of prolonged deliberations regarding jobless benefits for undocumented immigrants and nontraditional workers in New York. Amid the backdrop of the COVID-19 pandemic, the state previously allocated $2.1 billion to the Excluded Workers Fund, offering a lifeline to those excluded from conventional unemployment benefits.

Gov. Kathy Hochul’s proposed budget for fiscal year 2025 underscores a commitment to supporting asylum seekers, with significant allocations directed towards housing and legal assistance. The proposal has met with opposition from Republicans, who argue for prioritizing legal residents and taxpayers in the allocation of state resources. Senate Minority Leader Rob Ortt contends that limited resources should be reserved exclusively for those who have contributed to the state’s tax base.
