WaPo Poll: 65 Percent of Americans Want All Immigration to U.S. Halted

John Binder, Breitbart, April 28, 2020


The latest Washington Post/University of Maryland poll finds that Americans, by a majority, want all immigration to the U.S. halted.

When asked “Would you support or oppose temporarily blocking nearly all immigration into the United States during the coronavirus outbreak?” about 65 percent of Americans said they favored such a policy. Only 34 percent opposed an immigration moratorium while one percent had no opinion.

Recent Pew Research Center and Ipsos polling have found similar support for reassessing current immigration levels. The latest Pew survey revealed that more than 8-in-10 Americans call mass migration a “threat” to the U.S.

An Ipsos poll found that nearly 8-in-10 Americans want all immigration halted.
