Jordan Says Crime Could Tip Election To Trump

Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) said that the issue of crime could play a major role in the November election, including possibly aiding former President Donald Trump. The statement came amid increased concern about crime, including acts committed by illegal aliens in major cities.

Jordan, the House Judiciary Committee chairman, said that the increase in crime and the wave of migrants entering the country could tip the election to Trump. He said that crime was one of the “big four” issues facing the country.

“We went from a secure border to no border. We went from safe streets to record crime. We went from $2 gas to $4 gas, and we went from stable pricing to record inflation,” said Jordan. “So, those four things are on the minds of Americans.”

The representative said that solving the issue of crime was “good public policy.”

“I think Americans are fed up with everything they see in the Biden administration,” he said.

Jordan’s statement came amid a significant increase in crime across the country since the 2020 George Floyd riots. This includes concern about rising crime among migrants in New York City.

The city has taken in almost 200,000 migrants since 2020. New York has seen a number of high-profile crimes involving migrants, including the beating of two NYPD officers in Times Square earlier this year.

There have been brawls among migrant groups and the growth of violent gangs among the illegal aliens.

Former President Donald Trump said that New York City has faced increased crime in part because of a lack of prosecution.

The former president criticized Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg (D), who is also prosecuting him over the alleged aftermath of a reported brief relationship with former adult film actress Stormy Daniels.

The former president said that the district attorney’s office was “letting violent crime run rampant all over our city.” He said that Bragg should not be “wasting time” on prosecution of him over other issues.
