A new YouGov poll found that 56% of Republican voters believe the current flow of legal and illegal immigration is making the country “worse off.”
Furthermore, the poll found that just 2-in-10 Republicans believe that the current influx of both legal and illegal immigrants makes the country “better off.” Immigration will be a key issue in the upcoming midterm elections and Democrats are losing on it.
Currently, the federal government offers 1.2 million foreign nationals residency with a further million work visas being handed out. That’s before illegal immigration is accounted for which is skyrocketing thanks to President Biden.
Millions pouring into the US
Back in 2019, Republicans backed by former President Trump introduced legislation to crack down on the numbers of legal immigrants entering the United States.
Senator Tom Cotton (R-AR), who introduced the legislation, issued a statement saying, “For decades, our immigration system has been completely divorced from the needs of our country and has harmed the livelihoods of working-class Americans.”
However, those efforts failed and the corporate lobbyists in Washington D.C. have succeeded in ensuring that the import of cheap labor at the expense of Americans continues unabated.
Working class voters have rightly recognized that immigration must be throttled if they want any chance of seeing higher wages.
Under Democrat leadership that will never happen. President Biden and his administration can’t even close the southern border and stop the influx of millions of illegal immigrants, there is zero chance of them restricting legal immigration.
That can all change if Americans get out and throw Democrats out of power in November. If Republicans gain power in Congress, they just may be able to make progress on an issue that is so important to American voters.
November comes down to immigration
Voters are most concerned with the economy and immigration going into this year’s midterm elections. The President and his party have failed horrifically on both issues and many analysts project a sweeping Republican victory.
With how badly Democrats are doing on the economy and immigration, it is possible November will make the 2010 midterm elections look like a minor defeat.
Of course, there’s still time for things to change between now and November 8th. President Biden is hoping for a miracle to stave off Republicans eager for revenge after two years of Democrat rule.
