A new poll is showing that 79% of Americans believe there is a problem or a crisis on the southern border.

The President has been telling the American people this for almost two years. the $5.7 Billion that Trump wants for the wall is less than 1/10th of 1% of the 3.5 trillion dollar fiscal budget for 2019.

As President Donald Trump mulls declaring a national emergency over border security, a new Morning Consult/Politico survey shows a lion’s share of voters agree with him that the United States is facing a crisis over illegal immigration.

According to the poll, conducted Jan. 4-6 among 1,989 registered voters, a 42 percent plurality think there is an illegal immigration crisis at the U.S.-Mexico border, which Trump has argued as he’s tried to leverage a partial government shutdown to secure congressional funding for his proposed southern border wall. Another 37 percent of voters said there’s a problem but not a crisis, and 12 percent said there’s neither a problem nor a crisis.

As you can see, arrests were up almost 100,000 at the border in 2018. Statistics aka facts show more arrests at the border in fiscal year 2018 (396,579) than in fiscal year 2017 (303,916).

The best part about this poll is that 71% of Democrats polled say there is either a crisis or a problem at the southern border. That’s right, 71% of Democrats polled even say that.

72% of Republicans say there is a crisis, while 19% say there is a problem. That means that 91% of Republicans agree with President Trump. Thus the majority of Americans Republican and Democrats agree with the President. The mainstream media is once again lying to the American people.
