A full 75% of Americans SUPPORT efforts by outsiders to come to America to live their lives….
65% of Republicans also support the idea….
85% of Democrats….
While Donald Trump (with his trusty assistant Stephen Miller coaxing him on) fights to eliminate illegal and LEGAL immigration into this country?
Americans, even those in his party, disagree with his view of issue…..
Images of crying children longing for their parents has only served to increase the support for a sane ,uniform policy, to bring people into the country legally, and offer them a chance to become citizens….
U.S. immigration policy was a key part of Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign, and it has been an area of significant action because his administration has targeted both legal and illegal immigration with its policies. Since taking office, Trump has issued a travel ban for residents of a number of primarily Muslim countries, continued to press for a wall along the Southern U.S. border and sought to end the DACA program, in addition to a number of other less visible actions.
Gallup polling has shown that the public is at odds with Trump over the border wall and strongly favors allowing DACA children to remain in the U.S. and have a path to citizenship. More generally, Americans’ strong belief that immigration is a good thing for the country and that immigration levels shouldn’t be decreased present the president and Congress with some tough decisions as the midterm elections loom….
There are some Republicans who are well aware of this feeling by the American public….
There are also some that do NOT care….
