Overwhelming Number Polled Want More Control On Immigration

By an overwhelming  percentage, the respondents want tighter controls on immigration.  They are sympathetic to the plight of DACA illegals.

“A Harvard-Harris poll taken in the run-up to the shutdown found Americans strongly support granting citizenship rights to illegal immigrant Dreamers. But they also back Mr. Trump’s three demands for a border wall, limits to the chain of family migration and an end to the Diversity Visa Lottery. 

Most striking of all is the public’s demand for lower overall legal immigration — a position that has little traction on Capitol Hill but one that is overwhelmingly popular across the country. 

The poll found that most Americans want annual legal immigration capped at 500,000 a year or less — far lower than the current annual rate of 1.3 million. 

Those findings challenge what many lawmakers say is the bipartisan consensus on Capitol Hill that while illegal immigration is to be discouraged, high levels of legal immigration are necessary for the nation’s image and its economy.” 

“The survey asked respondents what level of overall legal immigration they would like to see. 

A stunning 35 percent said the level should be fewer than 250,000 a year, while another 19 percent said it should be 250,000 to 500,000. Combined, they make up a majority looking for a cut of at least 50 percent over current annual levels. Another 18 percent said they want to see 500,000 to 1 million. 

Just 19 percent of respondents said they want an increase over 1 million.

Mr. Trump hasn’t said recently what legal immigration number he wants to see, but he has been vocal on changing the way the U.S. picks immigrants. He said skills and ability to assimilate in the U.S. should be weighted over extended family ties. 

The poll says voters agree by a 79 percent to 21 percent margin. 

That is even bigger than the 77 percent to 23 percent margin that supports legalization for Dreamers. 

More than 60 percent of voters said current border security is inadequate, and 54 percent said they support “building a combination of physical and electronic barriers across the U.S.-Mexico border.”

TRUTH -- THE NEW HATE SPEECH!

Original Post
Is there any reason why there should be more than a dozen
coming into the country for at least two years so to give
America a chance to put in place what needs to be placed.
 
We need time to rid the place of all gang members starting with
MS13, all illegals and all useless slugs in congress that are there
for charity reasons.
 
Restart a common sense business approach to driving this country
in the right direction that hasn't been seen since the 19th century.
I could add more to this pipe dream but what the hell........

our education system is failing, then on top of that we are being flooded with uneducated immigrants.  from refugees that don't want to assimilate into our society to illegals waving the flag of the country they came from.  Doesn't make sense except democrats want more voters.   These "dreamers" have been here long enough to show if they are productive.   If they dropped out of high school, committed crimes deport them.  Don't fall for the trick of parading the sad sob stories, for every good story there are 8 bad ones.

And every night some ****brain is lying about how much the
people want amnesty for the chain gang, lottery felons and wet
back dreamers. Send them all back and the next time a mole
for sharia in the WH dupes the stupid American voters, won't be
believed by the idiots on camels or rented trucks or hijacked planes.

It runs about 2 to 1 AGAINST amnesty for all the illegals and others invading our country.

As far as the DACA donkeys play out, polls show a 3 out of 4 want
less illegals period.... I'll soon move to Mexico for a better life
because Trump will lose the 2020 turn around if he breaks this
promise...  

Politics is called the art of the possible. If, we get the funds for the wall and other barriers, end chain migration and the lottery system, I could accept the 1.8 million -- they are already here.  Throw in e-verify and the illegals will diminish. Otherwise, things may keep going with no changes -- just getting worse.
