More Than 8-in-10 Americans Call Mass Migration a ‘Threat’ to U.S.
More than eight-in-ten American adults call mass migration at least a “threat” to the United States, a survey finds.
The latest Pew Research Center survey
that the overwhelming majority of Americans see the mass migration of people from one country to another as a threat in the midst of the Chinese coronavirus crisis.
About 42 percent of American adults call mass migration a “major threat” to the U.S. Another 39 percent say mass migration is a “minor threat” to the county, while less than 20 percent of American adults see no threat from mass migration.
Likewise, nearly six-in-ten Republican voters and 29 percent of Democrats say mass migration is a major threat to the U.S. When broken down demographically by age, a plurality of 30- to 49-year-olds call mass migration a major threat, along with about 50 percent of Americans at least 50 years old.
The survey is just the latest to show widespread skepticism and opposition to the nation’s continued legal immigration levels — whereby about 1.2 million foreign nationals are admitted annually — amid mass unemployment of about 22 million Americans.
