Americans showing rising dissatisfaction over immigration – Poll

Washington, Feb 13 (Prensa Latina) Americans’ satisfaction with present level of immigration into the country has fallen since the start of last year to its lowest point in a decade, according to a new Gallup poll.

Nearly two-thirds, or 63%, of respondents are dissatisfied with U.S. immigration overall, and a large majority of that group specifically wants levels decreased. Just 8% are dissatisfied because they want to see more immigration, while the remaining 15% are either unsure why they feel that way or want immigration to remain the same.

Broken down by party, 71% of Republicans think immigration levels are too high, compared to just 19% of Democrats who feel the same.

In early January, Joe Biden’s administration announced some measures to supposedly increase security at the Mexican border and to reduce illegal crossings, based on certain rules that would expand regulatory channels for orderly movement, while speeding up the removal of migrants.

The U.S. government indicated an extension of the so-called humanitarian paroling process, which provides for up to 30,000 people from Nicaragua, Cuba, Venezuela and Haiti to travel to the United States per month for two years.

With their new control of the House, Republicans in Congress have already begun examining Biden administration border policies as tensions about immigration at the southern border simmer.

On January, a coalition of 20 Republican-led states sued Biden´s administration to halt his new migration program for these four Latin American countries, alleging this initiative, which allows up to 360,000 citizens from those nations to enter northern territory each year, is allegedly illegal.

President Biden in his State of the Union address last week tried to paint immigration reform as a bipartisan issue, saying “America’s border problems won’t be fixed until Congress acts.”
