According to an article published in the Washington Times, a push by the left-wing of the Democratic party to abolish the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency (ICE) may be at risk:

Democrats’ push to abolish ICE took a dagger to the heart Thursday when the Congressional Hispanic Caucus voted against endorsing the policy, saying it wouldn’t solve anything.

An article by The Hill takes a look at a recent poll regarding Americans’ attitude toward immigration issues. Here is a quote from that article that may surprise some of our progressive Democrats throughout Maryland:

According to a Harvard University-Harris Poll, a majority of Americans actually agree with not only one but all of Trump’s immigration proposals.

Other studies have indicated that immigration will be one of the most important issues that voters will deal with in the midterm elections.

These polls could possibly have an impact on the Maryland gubernatorial race, which will pit progressive Democrat and former NAACP president Benjamin Jealous against the incumbent Republican Governor Larry Hogan.

Also, the race for Baltimore County Executive may include some immigration rhetoric, depending upon who actually gets the nomination. As things currently stand, the race will pit another progressive Democrat, John Olszewski, against Republican challenger Al Redmer. Needless to say, if those two go head to head, the issue of BC’s status as a sanctuary county may find its way into the mix.

Hopefully, there will be enough interest in the general election to bring out more than the meager and embarrassing 20% of eligible voters who took part in this year’s primary vote.

The Baltimore Post believes that it is not only a constitutional right to vote, but a moral obligation for every citizen. We should all take part in the process of determining the future course for our country.
