A May poll released on June 4 by Cygnal shows that almost 30 percent of Americans surveyed want to halt all immigration to the United States, both legal and illegal.
“The survey covered a range of topics, including the 2020 presidential election, immigration, the economy, and various public policy issues, and examined underlying correlations between those issues and U.S. voters that hold populist views,” according to Cygnal.
The poll also tested sentiments on populism in the United States, finding that 39 percent of Americans held positive views of populism.
“The anti-establishment sentiments helping to fuel the populist wave can be found on the left, center, and right of the ideological spectrum. This is incredibly evident when looking at the survey findings,” Chris Kratzer, Cygnal’s VP of Research and Analysis said. “The unifying factor is that nearly all populists believe that ordinary citizens have been betrayed by the elites of this country, regardless of their party affiliation.”
The poll also showed a clear partisan split on the direction of the country, with 75 percent of Republicans saying America is on the right track, and 84 percent of Democrats saying that America is on the wrong track.
“President Donald Trump has a good shot at re-election because 47% of voters believe the economy is better now than a year ago. As long as the economy continues to appear strong, so will the President’s electoral chances,” Cygnal’s founder and CEO Brent Buchanan said.

Over 200 Illegal Aliens Arrested in Bust of Human Smuggling Operation in Laredo, Texas
More than 200 illegal aliens were transferred to the custody of Customs and Border Patrol last week, with the wave of arrests coming as authorities moved upon a human smuggling ring operating in the Laredo, Texas area.
Border Patrol agents most recently recounted finding 25 people hiding within a horse trailer at an immigration checkpoint on Thursday. They’ve encountered other smuggling attempts with the use of commercial tractor-trailers, box trucks, agriculture and fuel containers, and a travel trailer. CBP has reported making 242 arrests last week alone, a figure not seen since before the coronavirus pandemic.
At least two of the men arrested by CBP for attempting to unlawfully enter the country have outstanding arrest warrants for sex crimes in the United States, one of which is said to have targeted a minor. Both of these suspects are currently facing extradition proceedings for their alleged crimes.
The south Texas city appears to have become a hub for cartel-affiliated human smuggling, which has resumed in force following a lull during the onset of the coronavirus pandemic. CBP and the Webb County Sheriff’s Office executed a search warrant on a human smuggling stash house in the city last month, in which 47 illegal aliens were being stashed.
The freeze on illegal immigration that resulted from the coronavirus pandemic appears to largely be over, with criminal smuggling groups now once again attempting to move large groups of unlawful aliens into the United States. It’s very likely that smuggling organizations will attempt to move their customers across the southern border in a greatly increased capacity if Joe Biden is inaugurated in January. The Democrat candidate has already confirmed he only intends to deport illegal aliens who are convicted of a violent felony, which would largely abandon the enforcement of American immigration law.
