Former President Donald Trump’s words have been ringing true with many Americans, as evidenced by the recent polls showing him leading Florida Governor Ron DeSantis in the race for the Republican nomination for president in 2024. While some may be concerned about the “dystopia” Trump is creating, it is clear that his message of strong borders and national security resonates with a large portion of the population.

The U.S. Customs and Border Patrol (CBP) reported that over 2.3 million migrants were encountered in fiscal year 2022, and another 600,000 migrants evaded CBP that same year. In October, November, and December of fiscal year 2023, CBP reported encountering 230,000 people, 233,470 people, and over 250,000 people respectively. This is a clear indication that illegal immigration is still a major issue in the United States.

Mara Gay, a New York Times columnist, recently asked a MSNBC panel why we are still talking about this “dystopia” when we could be having important debates over climate change, the economy, or gun control. She suggested that Trump’s language is “not just of dystopia, but of fascism, of white supremacy.” However, Trump has denounced white supremacy on multiple occasions, including after violent protests in Charlottesville in 2017.
It is clear that Trump’s message of strong borders and national security resonates with many Americans. While some may be concerned about the “dystopia” Trump is creating, it is important to recognize that illegal immigration is still a major issue in the United States. It is also important to remember that Trump has denounced white supremacy on multiple occasions. It is time for us to move past the rhetoric and focus on real solutions to the issues facing our nation today.
