Almost a third of Americans want all immigration stopped

An American survey conducted in May this year, and released on June 4 by Cygnal, shows a marked increase in anti-immigration sentiments as well as a rise in populism.

    Almost 30 percent of Americans believe all immigration to the United States should be stopped. Moreover, these respondents thought both legal and illegal immigrants should no longer be allowed to enter the country.

    “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 US voters that hold populist views,” Cygnal noted.

    The survey, which examined notions of so-called “populism” in the United States, found that 39 percent of Americans held positive views on nationalism and patriotism.

    “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,” said Chris Kratzer, the polling company’s vice president 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,” he added.

    There is also a clear split among American voters on the direction they believe the country should take. Some 75 percent of Republicans said the US was on the right track, while 84 percent of Democrats said that America was on the wrong track.

    “President Donald Trump has a good shot at re-election because 47 percent 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 CEO Brent Buchanan pointed out.

    On Tuesday, June 18 in Orlando, Florida, Trump will announce his bid for reelection. The Trump campaign’s first internal reelection poll found Democratic contender Joe Biden beating Trump by 7 percentage points in Florida in a March survey, ABC reported.

    The state is key to Trump’s campaign strategy: Without it, a single loss in the Rust Belt could trigger the end of his presidency after the vote in November. Some 23 Democratic presidential candidates have meanwhile been scrambling for media attention.

    President Trump tweeted on Monday night that Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) will start deporting “millions” of undocumented migrants as soon as next week.

    There have been more border arrests so far this year than in the past decade with close to 600 000 migrant arrests. Immigration agencies have been struggling to care for the large numbers of children, mostly from Honduras, El Salvador and Guatemala.

    Central American migrants have been released into the US due to lack of space, according to media outlet Axios. The latest ICE figures show for the third month in a row, there were more than 100 000 border crossings — 144 278 in total.

    Mexican Foreign Minister Marcelo Ebrard told a news conference last week that Mexico and the Trump administration had come to an agreement to monitor migration in the next few months.

    More asylum reforms will be on the table if it was determined that individuals crossing the US southern border had not been reduced, Ebrard said.
