WASHINGTON DC – Good-paying jobs being tough to find, state budgets overflowing in red ink, crime increasing, taxes skyrocketing, debts deepening – all of these issues are of concern to voters this campaign season.
"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," FAIRus.org says.
The Breitbart/Gravis had a number of findings that were clear:
- 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.
