Even though the Left pushes open-borders propaganda nonstop, it appears the majority of Americans haven’t been fully brainwashed yet.
The media spends a lot of time leading us to believe that there’s huge support for all things immigration but in fact, the data says otherwise.
The “nation of immigrants” line is often thrown out as a catch-all defense for immigration, but that’s an asinine and context-less statement that has been misused ad nauseum.
According to the polls, the American people are actually far more in line with Trump’s policies than many think.
As reported at Breitbart, in a new Rasmussen poll, 62 percent of likely voters said they support barring new immigrants to the US from receiving welfare benefits for at least five years, which is a policy that Trump mentioned in a recent speech.
Most likely to support the ban are middle-class Americans making $30,000 to $50,000, with 72 percent in favor. Even those who describe themselves as “moderates” support it at a rate of 61 percent.
This poll indicates that Americans don’t want just any immigration, but those that are capable and willing to work without handouts.
Questions about illegal immigration were also asked for the poll, and the results are definitive:
Those who support the policy forcing those seeking welfare to prove they’re a US citizen and here legally stood at 76 percent. While only 17 percent opposed the idea.
