Distrust: Support for Biden's immigration policy slumps | Israel today


A controller of the American YouGov company reveals that the majority of the public believes that there is an immigration crisis and that the situation has worsened under the current president's tenure • The figure contradicts a slight increase in general support for Biden

The President of the United States, Joe Biden, managed in recent weeks to significantly improve the rates of support for him and his policies, after the unexpected gains for the Democratic Party in the midterm elections that took place in the country in November of last year.

However, a new poll by the U-Gov company and the news website Yahoo show that although the general support figures for the president have increased somewhat, in the area of ​​immigration, the majority of the American public sees the president as the main culprit in the ongoing immigration crisis from Central America through the Mexican border.

According to the survey, only 31 percent of respondents view the Biden administration's immigration policy favorably, a drop of more than two percentage points from the previous survey.

This is a new low for the current administration in this area.

Worse than that, for Biden, 55 percent of the respondents answered that they view the conduct of the Biden administration in the field of immigration as negative.

But perhaps the most disturbing statistic emerging from the survey is that 73 percent of the American public, Democrats and Republicans alike, believe that the immigration situation in the United States has worsened since the president was sworn into office in 202.  

Unusually, in a variety of ten areas proposed by the survey including the inflation crisis, the crime rate and the situation Economically, precisely in the field of immigration, the government received the worst score.

The survey was conducted among 1,538 adult American citizens.

The survey reveals the complex attitude of the public in the United States towards immigration and the immigrants themselves.

About 41 percent of respondents to the survey claimed that the immigration situation on the southern border of the United States is a real crisis, while 29 answered that Medov has a big problem but not a crisis.

Only four percent of all respondents believed that there was no problem surrounding illegal immigration from Mexico.

Despite the hard numbers for President Biden, there is a bright spot when it comes to the immigration crisis for the administration.

47 percent of respondents to the survey supported the intention of the Biden administration to grant the possibility of easier naturalization for foreigners who came to the United States as children.

These young people, who were nicknamed "dreamers" as part of the program to make it easier for them to obtain citizenship, became one of the largest groups of illegal residents in the United States, and the promise to help them became a central policy of the administration.

About a week ago, Biden visited the southern border of the United States, near the city of El Paso in the state of New Mexico.

The president toured the border and reviewed the measures to prevent the crossing of illegal immigrants.

Biden has been heavily criticized by the right for this being his first visit to the Roman border since he was sworn in as president.

During the past year, the American Border Guard recorded the illegal crossing of 1.7 million people, a figure unimaginable even in American terms, when the vast majority of these illegal immigrants were not caught or arrested.
