Fewer Americans Satisfied With Level of Immigration in US: Gallup
Julia Mueller, The Hill, February 13, 2023
Americans’ satisfaction with the current level of immigration into the country has fallen since the start of last year to its lowest point in a decade, according to a new Gallup poll.
Satisfaction with immigration dropped 6 points, from 34 percent in January of last year to 28 percent in the latest poll. Nearly three-quarters of respondents, or 63 percent, say they’re dissatisfied on the issue.
Most Americans dissatisfied with the current level of immigration want to see less of it, with 40 percent of U.S. adults saying they want immigration to decrease.
Broken down by party, 71 percent of Republicans think immigration levels are too high, compared to just 19 percent of Democrats who feel the same.
The share of Republicans upset about immigration being too high this year reached the highest level recorded by Gallup for the party.
