Poll: Most Americans Want Less Immigration, Not More; The Number of Americans Who Want More Americans Is Barely Higher Than Those Who Want No Immigration Whatsoever

It seems the political establishment embarked on a campaign of transforming the nation through high levels of immigration (both legal and illegal), confident of the righteousness and popularity of their cause, without ever -- get this! -- bothering to ask the citizenry they allegedly represent about their feelings on the issue.

Eighty-one percent of Americans want one million or fewer legal immigrants to the United States per year, according to new polling data released Monday by the Harvard-Harris poll, a number lower than the 1.38 million who came to the United States in 2015.

The plurality of respondents, 35 percent, think that there should be between 1 and 250,000 legal immigrants arriving to the United States per year. A net 12 percent want to see immigration increased to 1.5 million people per year or more, while nine percent of Americans think that there should be no new legal immigrants.

Plurality preference for between 1 and 250,000 new immigrants a year persists across white, Hispanic, and black Americans, as well as moderates and self-identified Democrats. Such a rate of immigration would be lower even than the rate expected from the RAISE Act, a bill backed by the administration and expected to cut immigration in half in ten years.

There's a plurality of preference for between 1 (one!) and 250,000 legal immigrants per year, while the current rate is 1.38 million per year, and virtually all the Establishment plans (including, especially, nominal "Republican" Establishment plans) call for combating illegal immigration by simply jacking up legal immigration so much that there's less of a need at all to immigrate illegally.

They will continue ignoring the preferences of the public, and they will continue being baffled and butthurt that the public is in open revolt against them.

Oh, and maybe they'll explain away the public revolt by blaming it on RUSSIAN BOTS.
