A New Poll Found that More Americans are in Favor of Immigration
A poll created by Gallup from May 28 to June 4 of 2020 on the percentage of American people favoring immigration has surprised many. The poll conducted last year found that 34% of Americans would prefer immigration to increase in the United States; this is up from 27% in 2019. It is the most support that Gallup has seen regarding increasing immigration since 1965. The poll found that many Americans have positive attitudes towards immigration and they generally support the Democrats’ policies on immigration more than that of Republicans.
Immigration was an ongoing topic for former President Trump. When President Trump was in office, he was opposed to creating a naturalization path for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) and he was anti-immigrant in general. President Trump was not concerned about getting support for his policies. Rather, he used his political power to energize his base and made significant policy changes using executive action and executive orders. Now that President Biden is in power, he is starting to undo many of these changes. President Biden has the opportunity to make immigration a reform during the first two years of his presidency while he enjoys a majority in both the House and the Senate.
