Immigration Reform 2015 News: GOP voters claim immigrants are huge burden on United States
Despite the innumerable contributions that immigrants have made in the U.S., a new Pew Research Center poll reveals that the majority of Republican voters view immigrants as a “burden” on the U.S. economy.
The Pew survey, which polled 2,002 adults in mid-May, found that 63 percent of Republican voters consider immigrants a “burden” when it comes to competing for jobs, housing and health care. In addition, 58 percent of Republican respondents said that granting immigrants with legal status is like giving them a “reward for doing something wrong” or breaking the law.
On the other hand, 62 percent of Democratic voters agree that immigrants “strengthen our country because of their hard work and talents,” while 57 percent of Independents said that immigrants “strengthen” America overall.
