(USA Features) The vast majority of Americans believe that mass immigration is a ‘threat’ of varying degrees to the United States according to a new survey.
Roughly 42 percent call mass migration a “major threat” to the U.S., while 39 percent say mass migration is a “minor threat” to the country, according to the Pew Research Center.
The survey confirms a poll released earlier this week by USA Today/Ipsos that found eight of 10 people believe the U.S. should implement an immigration pause during the coronavirus pandemic.
Also, last year polling indicated that more people than ever believe that immigration is the most important problem facing the U.S.
Many Leftist groups and Democrats lambasted the president for banning travel from China, to include former Vice President Joe Biden, his likely 2020 opponent. He called Trump “xenophobic” for his implementation of the ban.
“Stop the xenophobic fear-mongering,” Biden tweeted in mid-March. “Be honest. Take responsibility. Do your job.”
