III. The Flames of a Mid-term Election

War are about to be Ignited

No doubt, the coming mid-term
election on November 6, 2018 is a
major event in American political
circles. According to the US
Constitution, the US presidential
election is held every four years,
and the congressional elections are
held every two years. That is, one
congressional election is held in the
same year as the presidential election,
while the other one is held between
two presidential elections. The
congressional elections held between
the two presidential elections are the
mid-term elections and reflect on
the "political achievements" of the
President of the United States over the
past two years.

The two major political parties in the
United States are the Democratic
Party and the Republican Party.
President Trump is a member of the
Republican Party, and has always
taken a conservative attitude
towards immigration and preferred
tough immigration policies. On the
contrary, the Democratic Party is
highly supportive of measures that
encourage immigration.
