Surprise! Americans Want Less Immigration

Gallup finds Americans less favorable toward immigration than they were a year ago. 50% say immigration should be decreased (up from 39% last year).  32% say immigration levels should be kept the same, (down from 39%),and 14% say they should be increased (down from 18%).

Breakdown by political party.  Keep in mind that all numbers for each party are up since 2008.  It would be interesting to know if any of the respondents left or joined a different party since 2008.

61% of Republicans, 46% of Democrats and 44% of Independents want to see immigration decreased .

.. Americans in the South (54%) are the most likely to want immigration decreased, while those in the West (44%) are relatively less likely to say the same.

One response to “Surprise! Americans Want Less Immigration

  1. I t looks like January is the busiest season for an “Immigration attorney in the US”. I’m very curious if this is the case with others. I suspect the reason I’m always busy in January is because people are getting their refund checks. All year long I offer payment options, but I just don’t get the same response as January. If you know of other ideas please do not hesitate to contact me.
