Republican National Committee Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel Tuesday called on a solution to the nation’s immigration policy, pointing to the number of people coming to the United States in caravan and insisting something must be done.
“It seems to be never ending,” McDaniel told Fox News’ “America’s Newsroom.” “We need to address our immigration policy. It has been kicked down the road far too long.”
President Donald Trump has taken a firm stance on the issue, she added, and “it is time for Democrats and Republicans to come together and solve a problem that isn’t going away. We can’t continue to push it down the road.”
McDaniel also on Tuesday predicted GOP Sen. Cindy Hyde-Smith will pull out a win, despite the recent controversies in the race.
“It is hard to poll in these special elections,” she said. “You don’t know who will turn out on the random dates that people don’t typically vote. We aren’t leaving anything to chance. The RNC has had 100 staff on the ground and made 1,500,000 voter contacts. This is something we don’t want to take for granted.”
She also discussed the party’s losses in the midterm elections, saying it’s important to attract middle class females and get them back.
“We’ve got to share with those women what this administration has done to improve our economic prosperity, to bring more jobs to this country, taking on the opioid crisis, all those things,” she said. “I think the president is focused on how do we reach these voters to turn them out in 2020 and get him re-elected. Our country is doing better and we need the voters back.”
