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.
