For years the Democrats have tried to increase immigration numbers—legal or otherwise. They have pushed to increase the number of people who enter the United States. When those numbers reach their limit, they look the other way to let people in illegally.
The reason is clear. They want a larger group of outsiders in America. People they can lie to and exploit for votes. Democrats care less about the rights of citizens and more about the rights of strangers.
But it seems like, the rest of the country does not agree with them. A new poll blasts a hole in the left’s entire narrative.
From Free Beacon:
Eighty-one percent of Americans want one million or fewer legal immigrants to the United States per year, according to new polling data released Monday by the Harvard-Harris poll, a number lower than the 1.38 million who came to the United States in 2015.
The plurality of respondents, 35 percent, think that there should be between 1 and 250,000 legal immigrants arriving to the United States per year. A net 12 percent want to see immigration increased to 1.5 million people per year or more, while nine percent of Americans think that there should be no new legal immigrants.
Plurality preference for between 1 and 250,000 new immigrants a year persists across white, Hispanic, and black Americans, as well as moderates and self-identified Democrats. Such a rate of immigration would be lower even than the rate expected from the RAISE Act, a bill backed by the administration and expected to cut immigration in half in ten years.
Most Americans don’t want more immigrants. That’s not because they are racist or xenophobic. It’s because they understand the social, economic, and safety implication. You can’t welcome millions and millions of strangers into a new environment and think everything will work out. There are numerous factors that have to be considered.
Americans of all backgrounds know that too many low-educated, low-skilled migrants can harm our country. The poll found that the vast majority of Americans want legal immigrants that will contribute to our society. That means educated, hard-working people. That also means a merit-based system. Not the existing lottery, that has only harmed our country.
But far bit it for the liberal media to report on these numbers. They have made immigration a weapon to attack Trump. They try to paint him as a racist who doesn’t want people coming in. If they were to reveal that most Americans agree with his plans, then the media would be humiliated. So they will bury this, with the rest of the real news.
We won’t. Americans deserve to have their voices heard. We don’t want millions of migrants flooding our country. We want honest, hard-working folks who will make America a better place.
