Need more black conservatives
It is my belief that illegal immigration affects AfricanAmericans the most of any demographic.
The House has 45 AfricanAmerican representatives, none of whom supports President Trump’s border wall. Of the 45 representatives, two are Republicans, Will Hurd and Mia Love. But as of today the Republicans will only have Will Hurd alone, who won by 1 percent of the votes. Mia Love lost her seat to Ben McAdams.
Mr. Hurd voted against the wall and Ms. Love did not show up to vote. I believe incumbents such as Mr. Hurd, Ken Buck, Justin Amash and Fred Upton will face primaries in 2020 because they voted against the wall. I don’t think they will survive.
Currently, three AfricanAmericans are in the Senate, and only one is expected to support the funding of the wall. One thing is for sure: Republican Tim Scott is a maverick, not a Trump-hating Republican. He opposes Mr. Trump on certain issues but he’s never made any of them personal. I believe the Republican Party needs real black conservatives.
