Poll: Majority of Americans are now more concerned with immigration than pandemic

A new poll reveals Americans are more concerned with illegal immigration than the COVID-19 pandemic, according to Pew Research.

Nearly half (48 percent) of those surveyed view illegal immigration as a “very big problem.” Only 47 percent view the pandemic at the same level.

The numbers marked a dramatic shift from June 2020. Only 28 percent viewed illegal immigration as a “very big problem” and 58 percent felt as strongly about the COVID-19 pandemic.

The poll, conducted between April 5-11, surveyed 5,109 American adults. The results follow pandemic restriction rollback in several states as cases have decrease and vaccinations have increased in distribution.

In March, more than 171,000 illegal immigrants crossed the nation’s southern border. More than 20,000 unaccompanied minors are in U.S. custody.

The Department of Homeland Security now estimates 500,000 to 800,000 family groups will attempt to cross the nation’s southern border by the end of 2021.

The spike in immigrant numbers has led to growing concern among many Americans. Instead of fearing the coronavirus, more people worry about the impact of thousands of new immigrants pouring into the nation.

Despite increased concern regarding illegal immigration, President Joe Biden’s approval rating has remained relatively strong. His overall approval rating stood at 59 percent.

The democrats don’t care about polls. They want new voters and more power.
