The Harvard/Harris Poll found that 5 out of 6 voters want immigration from Mexico to end. As you can tell by the number of people who approve of the plan, it cuts across all age groups and all political persuasions.
The plan is approved by 75 percent of Hispanic Americans and 77 percent of black Americans. Another 73 percent of Democrat voters said they support ending immigration from Mexico, while 84 percent of swing voters and 93 percent of Republican voters support such a measure.
It is popular even with liberal voters, who approve of the plan by nearly 70% and among Hillary voters by 74%.
At the same time that Americans want immigration from Mexico ended, the Dee State at the State Department is handing out H-2B and H-2A visas like they were candy. With unemployment expected to reach as high as 32% the extra competition for those jobs will not be welcomed.

While the overwhelming majority of Americans want to see an end to immigration from Mexico, the State Department has issued waivers that will more quickly fast-track many Mexican workers into the U.S. through the H-2B and H-2A visa programs.
The directive effectively allows agricultural and nonagricultural businesses to quickly import foreign workers on H-2A and H-2B visas without standard interview and application procedures.
The country’s last immigration boom — between 1900 and 1920 — was eventually met with a near immigration moratorium. Between 1925 and 1966, the U.S. legal immigration level did not exceed 327,000 annual admissions.
Since major changes were enacted in 1965 by President Lyndon B. Johnson (D) and in the 1990s by President George H.W. Bush (R) — changes that allow foreign nationals to bring as many foreign relatives to the country as they want — legal immigration levels have continued booming for about five decades.
Today, about 1.2 million legal immigrants are admitted to the U.S. every year.
