Poll Shows Americans Strongly Support Immigration Reductions

Disapproval over America’s mass immigration policies is a powder keg issue, with pollsters saying that Americans have reached a consensus that immigration is a problem, and maybe even “the problem.” The Breitbart/Gravis had a number of findings that were both unambiguous and striking:

  • Six to one – immigration should be decreased rather than increased;

  • 25 to one – unemployed Americans should have first dibs on jobs rather than foreign workers;

  • Majority believe immigration is a net drain on the U.S.

  • 61 percent believe that any politician who would hire a foreign worker over a U.S. worker is unfit to serve.

  • 75 percent believe the nation needs “an immigration system that puts American workers first, not an immigration system that serves the demands of employers seeking to reduce labor costs.”

  • A majority of voters (55 percent) disagree with Hillary Clinton’s call to release illegal immigrants arriving at the border into the United States and give them a chance to apply for asylum.
