Since the beginning of the year, more Americans are firmly against the advocacy of citizenship for aliens, even among Democrats. It is after a release by Politico/Morning Consult showing less concern for immigrants by Americans. In two months after the Biden inauguration as President, the drop in support for immigrant citizenship has been significant. According to a Politico/Morning Consult poll during the two periods, this drop from 57% of the nation’s support for citizenship has come down to 43%.
However, a majority of Democrats, 57%, support the move to award immigrants living in the US with citizenship. During the pandemic, around 17 million Americans have lost their jobs, making it more unbearable for the immigrants in tough economic times. In January, the numbers were higher, with over 72% of the Democrats supporting the move. According to a similar poll conducted by Politico/morning consult, 84% of Americans raised concerns about the immigration surge at the southern border. However, only 50% of the respondents described the situation as a crisis in the poll.
In addition, 23% of Americans believe the situation has gotten worse with the start of the Biden administration. At the same time, 40% thinks the immigration system was better during Trump’s administration. The Senate Opportunity Fund recently conducted a survey want the Biden administration to take more action on the immigration system. The Biden administration is receiving backlash for being lenient with immigrants.
Enforcing stricter laws and imposing on the existing ones over illegal immigration is what over 71% of respondents want the administration to do more. Additionally, Trump’s Border Wall has received tremendous support from the citizens. In a recent report, The Washington Times says that 53% of the nation supports the wall. It is adrift from the 55% against the wall in a survey conducted by the Chicago Council on Global Affairs in 2019. Today, only 38% are against the wall.
