STUDY: Majority From Every British Demographic Want Immigration Reduced

No single group in Britain wants more immigration.

Published

on

A sweeping study of Britons found that every demographic – from age, to ethnicity, to political party – wants less immigration.

“Findings by the new Tory think tank Onward revealed majority backing for controlling numbers even among 18-24 year-olds – who back it by 38 to 36 per cent,” according to The Sun. “An even higher proportion of Remainers back cutting immigration – with 40 per cent in support and 34 per cent against – the same numbers among Asian voters.”

“Remainers” are those who voted for Britain to stay a member of the European Union. They are considered liberal, and would be expected to support immigration.

“The findings come as Britain faced its highest rate of non-EU migration for 14 years,” Breitbart said. “In 2018, net immigration from non-EU countries stood at over 248,000, equivalent to the population of Southampton arriving in just one year. The demographic shift helped push the non-UK born population of the country to 9.4 million, around one in seven people nationwide.”

The United States, too, is having a fierce debate about the merits of immigration – both legal and illegal. President Donald J. Trump has proposed building a wall on the Southern border to discourage illegal immigration, but has been stymied by both political parties.

As illegal border crossings surge, Democrats blocked a meaningful amount of wall funding in the 2019 federal budget. President Donald J. Trump declared a National Emergency to address the issue, with plans to diver Department of Defense funding for the project, for which several heavily-blue states immediately sued his administration.

In addition to failing to deliver wall funding during 2017 and 2018, 12 Republican Senators voted against the president’s emergency wall funding, including Sens. Mitt Romney (R-Utah), Mike Lee (R-Utah), and Marco Rubio (R-Fla.).

At Least 40 Americans Infected With Coronavirus Aboard Quarantined Cruise Ship

They will be treated in hospitals in Japan.

Published

At least 40 Americans aboard a cruise ship have been infected with the coronavirus, in a development that suggest the dangerous disease may transmit more rapidly than the public in the western world realizes.

Immunologist Anthony Fauci, an official with the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, confirmed that 40 Americans had been diagnosed with the disease in an appearance on 60 Minutes Sunday.

Some reporting indicates that even more people have been infected with the disease, with figures ranging up to 355. These estimates include passengers of all nationalities. Those afflicted with coronavirus are being taken to Japanese hospitals to receive medical treatment.

The Americans were on board the cruise ship Diamond Princess, which is currently quarantined in Yokohama, Japan. The ship is host to the most pervasive outbreak of the coronavirus epidemic outside of China, where it originated. American passengers who tested negative of the disease have been evacuated from the ship and brought back to the United States on charter planes. Those infected with the virus will be treated in Japanese hospitals.

At least one American passenger who was traveling on board the Diamond Princess is refusing to take a U.S government charter plane back to the country, stating his belief to USA Today that the evacuation process the government is using to retrieve its citizens is not safe.

There’s considerable cause to believe the global public is being largely kept in the dark by the authoritarian Chinese government on the dangers posed by the quickly spreading virus. Estimates of the total count of people infected by the disease are largely unclear, with the Chinese government suspected of releasing deflated statistics in an effort to blunt criticism of their response to the epidemic.
