Trump wants to build a wall, limit H-1B work visas, and slow down immigration until we can ascertain who it is America invites into the country.
A recent Gallup poll shows the number of Americans who oppose increasing immigration levels rose to 79% while the percentage of people who want to see increased immigration levels dropped to 21%.
The poll is also tied with 38% of Americans wanting to decrease immigration and 38% wanting to keep it at the present level. The remaining 24% are undecided.
The poll even shows that 26% of immigrants want to see the level of immigration decreased, and only 24% want to see it increased.
First-generation Americans who want to see immigration levels decrease jumps to 35% compared to the 21% of those who want to see an increase.
Second-generation Americans is even higher with 40% wanting to decrease immigration while only 21% want to see an increase.
The poll essentially shows that, “while most Americans believe immigration is good for the country, a relatively small percentage would like to see the nation’s level of immigration increased, while the rest want it either to remain the same or to decrease.”
