America is solidly behind Trump’s immigration policies.

And the biggest reason is simple: Americans do not want their wages driven down by mass-immigration.

And the Hispanic community is the strongest backer of ending mass immigration because they don’t want the value of their labor driven down either.

This is a story much of the media chooses to overlook.

Breitbart reports:

A poll of likely 2018 voters shows two-to-one support for President Donald Trump’s pro-American immigration policies, and a lopsided four-to-one opposition against the cheap-labor, mass-immigration, economic policy pushed by bipartisan establishment-backed D.C. interest-groups.

The poll for NumbersUSA is another reminder to politicians that the business-funded ‘Nation of Immigrants” polls distract attention from voters’ private views, which were shockingly displayed on the evening of November 8, 2016.

The voters’ attitudes are critical as business groups, Democrats and some GOP legislators renew their push to persuade Trump to accept an amnesty of the 3 million ‘dreamer illegals — and thus drop his election-winning, pro-American policies before the 2018 election in favor of business-friendly, high-immigration/low-wage policies.

What became clear in the polls is that people want to protect American wages.

Breitbart continues:

The December 19 and 20 poll of likely mid-term voters by Pulse Opinion Research asked respondents to pick from competing priorities, not just whether they want to welcome more immigrants or to declare support for the nation’s history of immigration.

That focus on priorities ensured the pollster revealed 64 percent opposition to the current wage-flattening, annual inflow of roughly 1 million legal immigrants, alongside just 17 percent support for those pro-investor, anti-employee policies.

Voters were asked:

  • When businesses say they are having trouble finding Americans to take jobs in construction, manufacturing, hospitality and other service work, what is generally best for the country?  
  • Is it better to raise the pay until they can attract Americans without jobs even if it causes prices to rise, or is it better for the government to continue to automatically bring in new immigrants each year to keep the costs down?

The wage-raising priority got 57 percent among voters aged 18 to 39, 65 percent among blacks, 64 percent support among Latinos, 71 percent support among Republicans, 62 percent support among Democrats, but only 56 percent support among post-graduates and people who earn between $100,000 and $200,000.

This is an area that should give pro-sanctuary city politicians pause—because when you give people a choice between more immigrants or maintaining their wages, people will vote with their pocketbook.

Breitbart concludes:

The President’s highly visible statements on these issues appear to be neither pushing people away from his positions nor pushing them toward his positions. Instead, Trump appears to be representing the rather stable opinions of a solid majority of likely midterm voters.

The poll also showed that Hispanics are the most hostile to any increase in wage-lowering immigration — perhaps because Hispanics are most familiar with the wage-cutting impact of new arrivals.

The poll asked:

Current federal policy automatically adds about one million new legal immigrants each year giving all of them lifetime work visas.  Which is closest to the number of lifetime immigrant work visas the government should be adding each year — none, 250,000, half a million, one million, one and a half million, two million, or more than two million?

Twenty-seven percent of all voters and 27 percent of Hispanics told the polls that immigration levels should be set at zero. In contrast, just 22 percent of whites said immigration should be set at zero.

More broadly, 77 percent of Hispanics preferred immigration be trimmed to 500,000 people per year, down from the 2016 score of 1.2 million legal immigrants.

In comparison, 64 percent of blacks and 58 percent of whites want immigration reformed down to a half-million per year.

The same polls also showed that only 18 percent of Hispanics want annual immigration to be raised above 1.5 million a year, compared to 22 percent of whites and 12 percent of blacks who say they want immigration raised above the 1 million per year level.

This is another example proving that the Washington elites are not listening to the real needs—or wants—of the American people.
