Poll: 68% of Americans Want Stricter Border Policies

Sixty-eight percent of Americans, including 73 percent of swing-voting independents, told the pollsters they want stricter border policies once they were given this information:
Over 2.75 million came into the United States illegally over a twelve-month period ending September 2022, and more than 1.2 million have crossed since then. Given these numbers, should the administration continue its current policies or issue new, stricter policies to reduce the flow of people coming across the border?
Still, 48 percent of the Democrats said they favor current policies. The number is likely high because many Democrats defer to their political leaders. …
The prompt question is useful because few Americans know about the scale of illegal migration, according to the polling data. …
The poll showed that 56 percent of respondents wrongly believe the inflow was less than 500,000 per year.
An additional 19 percent incorrectly said the inflow was between 500,000 and 1 million.
Only 16 percent — or just one in six Americans — were close to the answer, offering estimates of between one million and three million.
The new results match the data from a similar poll conducted in December 2022 by Harvard Harris.
The public is also kept in the dark because the White House hides its immigration policy behind rhetoric, complexity, and a refusal to quickly release relevant information. …
The Harvard-Harris poll also showed 68 percent of Americans believe “people who cross the border with Mexico illegally should be turned back to Mexico. “Just 32 percent said migrants should be “released into the US with a court date.” …
The poll showed that 57 percent of independents — and 53 percent of all respondents — believe Biden’s loose border policies are encouraging the inflow of lethal drugs. …

Lord, we pray that You would secure our border. Restore law and order, God!
Father God, I know You see all that is happening because of our open borders. Send revival in the hearts of our lawmakers and government leaders to lead this country back to You. Help them seek Your righteousness regarding this great country and Constitution you have given us. We ask that You close our borders to avoid more evil coming in, save those who have come in seeking a better life, and send back those who mean to do harm if they will not come to You. We are fighting a spiritual battle that has been designed to bring our country down and do away with You. But You have all power and authority over the demonic, and we ask for Your mercy and grace to help us stand with You as we stand for You and pray against our enemies. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
Lord God, shield the world from this globalist plan, and prevent any digital currency from stealing our privacy and rights throughout the world. Please thwart and render fruitless the Universal Monetary Unit.
68% of Americans are letting the man responsible for every debacle in our country since he won the coup that put him illegitimately in the white house, stay in office! I say you get what you allow! Not one person in power is calling for his impeachment! FATHER GOD just like YOU corrected and protected the Israelites when they turned their backs on YOU, please protect America from the one they put in power who they continue to allow to subvert our Constitution and our laws! Wake up YOUR people and let us work to correct the wrong began in November of 2020 in JESUS NAME! Amen!
Everyone who came into our country had to meet strict guidelines. Now the Biden government is letting people from other nations into the USA and they are letting murders, rapists, drug dealers in to destroy our country. If they can’t abide by our laws they don’t belong here. Sending their children here without parent’s protection puts these innocent children in danger from disease as well as us and the children are being sexually abused. The drugs are causing more crimes to be committed! Drugs are being put into people’s drinks that are tasteless an undetectable like Feytinal. The American people need to stand behind our leaders who ship illegals back to their own countries. They need to stand up to their leaders and change their own countries and not bring their criminals here to destroy our nation. I think Biden and his government are traitors to our nation. China is paying them to disrupt our free nation because they want to destroy us and our way of life in God. I don’t blame the people under that government but their leaders. I believe they made the Covid virus and that this Biden government administration wants to kill off it’s own people as they feel there are too many people on this planet. They are guilty of murder and should be impeached and punished! I pray we, the American people need to stand up for what is right and true! In Jesus’Holy Name I pray! Amen.
Lord, reinstate toughness from the U.S. regarding the policies and especially regarding our border. Let wisdom fall upon our legislators so that they not only know what to do and how to implement border laws, but that they would have great courage to do what is right and good for our country. Borders must be respected. Let it be so, Lord. Amen.
What short memories we all have – “remain in Mexico” and the ending of “catch and release” both worked as these two policies were both in place simultaneously during the Trump presidency. An open border is the end of a nation’s sovereignty (and independence) – which is what the Biden administration wants as they are for the globalist’s agenda brought to us by the WEF, the WHO, the UN etc. A country without borders is no longer a sovereign country, distinct from other countries. We are the proverbial “frog in the pot of water” with the heat being slowly turned up (we are being slowly invaded/taken over) until the water is boiling but the frog no longer has the ability to jump out and save himself. I keep thinking about Nehemiah rebuilding the wall to keep foreign enemies out and protect his beloved city. If we love our country we need to protect her or we are no longer that “city on a hill” for the rest of the world. We can’t help others when we ourselves are no longer free and able to do so. Time to repent and turn back to God – 2 Chron. 7:14 – (post – “put on your oxygen mask” at http://www.mtothe5th.wordpress.com)
I like what you posted; very well put!
It is way pass time for some change in border control. I love the Hispanic people here and abroad, however the need to come legally as our ancestors did. I pray for border control and for the salvation of those on both sides of the border. 🙏📖🙏💔
Your president won’t allow border control! Write your state reps and your state governor and demand control of your state! Not only are they being allowed here illegally, but your tax dollars are supporting them as bogus biden feeds, houses, and clothes illegal immigrants in your neighborhoods! If you are tired of it, STOP ALLIWING IT in JESUS NAME! Amen!
