A recent survey from USA Today shows a vast majority of Americans back new restrictions on immigration as the country struggles to contain the Coronavirus pandemic.
“About 8 in 10 support drastic steps on immigration: imposing mandatory quarantines for people who have traveled to any other country and temporarily stopping immigration from all other countries. Seven in 10 want to ground all international flights. Almost half, by 49%-34%, want to ground all domestic flights,” reports the poll.
“One proposal does divide the country, and along partisan lines. Those surveyed split when asked if the government should provide temporary financial help for undocumented immigrants who can’t work because of layoffs or illness: 40% in favor, 42% against, 18% ‘didn’t know.’ Sixty-eight percent of Republicans oppose the idea; 58% of Democrats support it,” adds the survey.
