An Overwhelming Majority of Americans Believe that Illegal Immigration is a “Direct Threat” to America
A recent poll by the AP-NORC indicates that an overwhelming majority of Americans believe that illegal immigration poses a “direct threat” to America.
Specifically, 72% of Americans expressed some concern about illegal immigration as a direct threat to the US. 45% indicated that they are “extremely” concerned and 27% indicated that they are “moderately concerned.”
Only 26% of Americans don’t view mass illegal immigration as a threat. 55% of Americans voiced their disapproval with the way Joe Biden is managing border security. Another 56% disagree with Bidens immigration policies so far.
John Binder and Jacob Bliss of Breitbart News noted that public opinion will continue souring on Biden given new developments that expose his negligence at the border:
Opinions on border security will likely be exacerbated with the new information of FBI wanted terrorists slipping through America’s southern border as part of the ongoing surge.
In addition, Binder and Bliss highlighted Biden’s new sanctuary policies that will make Americans even more frightened about the level of incompetence coming from the Biden administration:
Likewise, national opinion on Bidens overall immigration strategy will likely be tested by Biden’s new ‘national sanctuary’ policy preventing approximately 9-in-10 deportations that would have otherwise occurred, further rewarding criminal aliens and serving as a magnet for more illegal immigration.
The Biden orders are likely preventing 9-in-10 deportations that would have otherwise occurred, shielding criminal illegal aliens from federal immigration law.
Americans have the right instincts on immigration. America is a nation of laws and has every right to determine who can settle down in the country. America is not an economic zone or some playground for foreign actors to exploit via its flawed immigration laws.
