    Harvard Poll: Public Opposes Joe Bidenís Migration Policies ó and GOPís Criticism

    Harvard Poll: Public Opposes Joe Bidenís Migration Policies ó and GOPís Criticism

    by NEIL MUNRO 28 Jun 2021

    Almost seven out of ten Americans believe President Joe Bidenís policies encourage illegal migration, says a Harvard Harris poll of 2,006 registered voters.

    The June 15-17 poll asked, ďDo you think the Biden Administration executive orders on immigration encourage or discourage illegal immigration?Ē Sixty-eight percent said yes, and just 32 percent said no.

    The poll also showed 55 percent of the voters believe Bidenís deputies should have preserved President Donald Trumpís border rules and while 55 percent believe that Bidenís policies increase the flow of drugs.

    Yet the poll also showed that many swing voters reject the GOPís criticism of Biden. For example, voters split 50 percent to 50 percent when they were asked, ďIs the Biden administration creating an open border or is it just trying to enforce immigration laws more humanely?Ē
    Bidenís 50 percent support includes 34 percent of Republicans and roughly half ó 55 percent ó of self-proclaimed, swing-voting independents,

    Bidenís 50 percent support on immigration likely will minimize any harm in the 2022 election ó unless the GOP can put forward a positive pro-American agenda for migration and the border.

    So far, the GOPís leaders ó including Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) and Sen, Mitch McConnell (R-KY) ó have refused to offer a positive immigration message to swing voters, and especially to swing-voting women who are worried about their familiesí income and status amid the chaotic migration.

    Instead, the GOP leaders merely offer a negative message of blaming Biden for a ďcrisisĒ at the border ó including the damage done to migrants ó while the Democrat-dominated TV networks broadcast Bidenís promise of ďhumane, orderly, and safeĒ migration.

    Pro-migration pollsters say the GOPís negative message portrays the GOP as ďmeanĒ towards migrants, especially among suburban women.

    But the GOPís negative message allows GOP leaders to stay silent about the wealth-shifting economics of migration, which is fervently backed by their major business donors who gain from the inflow of new consumers, renters, and cheap workers.

    Decades of data show that migration damages ordinary Americansí career opportunities, cuts their wages, raises their rents, curbs their productivity, shrinks their political clout, and wrecks their open-minded, equality-promoting civic culture.

    In response, Rep Jim Banks (R-IN) and the 100+ members of the Republican Study Committee are now prodding GOP leaders towards a more populist agenda. That April agenda includes the protection of American families from the pro-migration policies favored by Wall Street investors, saying:

    Americans regardless of party recognize the need to afford basic protections to U.S. workers in the job market. And voters throughout America recognize that we must first consider the social, economic and financial well-being of all American citizens and lawful residents here today.

    Biden has rejected this mainstream consensus and, with virtually no announcement or discussion, is sailing the United States deep into uncharted waters.

    Like many other polls, the Harvard Harris poll shows most voters oppose Bidenís claims ó and his business-backed inflow of migrants into Americansí workplaces, communities, schools, and civic life.

    Sixty-seven percent of respondents say illegal migrants should be turned back to Mexic0o ó as Trump required ó while 33 percent agree with Bidenís policy of allowing migrants into the United States to apply for asylum, the Harvard Harris poll said.

    Sixty-one percent say the huge flood of coyote-accompanied children at the border is the fault of the Biden administration, while 39 percent blame Trump for the inflow during Bidenís first several months, according to the poll.

    Fifty-six percent of respondents reject Bidenís claim ďclimate change, racism and sexism are root causes of migration,Ē while just 44 percent agree, according to the poll.

    Each year, four million young Americans enter the workforce. Their government forces them to compete against a growing population of illegal migrants, against one million new legal immigrants, and the resident workforce of roughly two million temporary guest workers.

    So a wide variety of pollsters have shown deep and broad opposition to labor migration and the inflow of temporary contract workers into jobs sought by young U.S. graduates. This opposition is multiracial, cross-sex, non-racist, class-based, bipartisan, rational, persistent, and recognizes the solidarity Americans owe to each other.

    The voter opposition to elite-backed economic migration coexists with support for legal immigrants and some sympathy for illegal migrants. But only a minority of Americans ó mostly leftists ó embrace the many skewed polls and articles pushing the 1950ís corporate ďNation of ImmigrantsĒ claim.

    The deep public opposition to labor migration is built on the widespread recognition that legal immigration, visa workers, and illegal migration undermine democratic self-government, fracture Americansí society, move money away from Americansí pocketbooks, and worsen living costs for American families.

    Migration moves wealth from employees to employers, from families to investors, from young to old, from children to their parents, from homebuyers to investors, from technology to stoop labor, from red states to blue states, and from the central states to the coastal states such as New York.

    Harvard Poll: VP Harris Fails on Immigration, Voters Want Return of Trump Border Poli

    Harvard Poll: VP Harris Fails on Immigration, Voters Want Return of Trump Border Policies

    by EDWIN MORA 28 Jun 2021

    Registered voters believe Vice President Kamala Harris has failed at her task of addressing the root causes of migration from Central America to the United States, a recent Harvard CAPS-Harris Poll reveals.

    The results are based on online surveys of 2,006 registered voters between June 15 and 17.

    The pollsters asked, ďDo you think vice president Kamala Harris has done a good job, adequate job, or a bad job tackling the root causes of illegal immigration?Ē

    Most voters rated Harrisís performance as inferior, with 44 percent saying she has done a ďbad job,Ē 30 percent a ďgood job,Ē and 26 percent an ďadequate job,Ē the survey notes.

    Republicans and Central American governments blame Bidenís lenient immigration policies, his welcoming message, and his decision to undo his predecessorís strict border policies for incentivizing migrants to head to the U.S. border.

    The vast majority (68 percent) of registered voters agree that Bidenís executive orders on immigration, which rescinded former President Donald Trumpís border security measures, encourage illegal immigration. In comparison, 32 percent believe they do not, the poll shows.

    Over half (55 percent) of registered voters believe Biden should ďhave left those Trump policies that made it more difficult to come into the country in place,Ē the survey reveals.

    Conversely, 45 percent say the president was right to undo Trumpís orders on immigration.

    A substantial majority of voters (64 percent) support stricter policies to reduce the flow of migrants versus 36 percent who favor keeping the current Biden border security measures in place.

    More than six out of ten registered voters also blame Biden for the flood of tens of thousands of unaccompanied minor children entering the U.S. and reportedly kept in squalid conditions at some emergency shelters erected by the administration.

    Some of the children at the shelters told some news outlets they are desperate to leave the facilities where they face rampant diseases, dangerous food, and sexual abuse.

    Biden protected unescorted children from deportation under Trump era pandemic control protocols (Title 42), weakened by the administration.

    Nearly seven out of ten (67 percent) registered voters want illegals deported, not released into U.S communities with court papers.

    The Biden team is even releasing many migrants into the U.S without court papers, just a notice to report at an immigration office. Immigration officials have admitted they have no way of contacting them if they donít show up at the office.

    Voters are split 50/50 on whether the Biden administration is creating an open border or just trying to enforce immigration laws more humanely, with 66 percent of Republicans, 45 percent of Independents, and even 38 percent of Democrats saying the president is implementing an open border policy.

    A slim majority (55 percent) of respondents told pollsters Bidenís border policies are increasing the flow of drugs and crime to the United States amid a wave of criminal activity and deadly drug overdoses plaguing the country. Meanwhile, 45 percent of registered voters believe Biden is simply treating migrants and border security more humanely.

    The migrant surge began in the last months of Trumpís administration. Still, it intensified under Biden, resulting in record-shattering numbers of migrants encountered by border authorities in recent months, predominantly from the Central American countries of Guatemala, El Salvador, and Honduras, together known as the Northern Triangle.

    President Biden charged Harris with leading the White House response to the border crisis.

    However, Harris and her team insisted that Biden misinterpreted her mission, stressing that her job is only to tackle the root causes of migration from the Northern Triangle. Harris and her team reportedly want to avoid getting entangled with the seemingly ďintractableĒ border crisis because it could hurt her chances of becoming president.

    After condemning Trump for allegedly mistreating migrant children, Harris has indicated that her aspirations to one day become president are more important than helping those minors.

    The pollsters asked the participants whether the vice president made progress in dealing with the root causes of illegal immigration during her recent trip to Central America.

    Four out of ten voters said she made ďno progress,Ē 24 percent gave her credit for ďsome progress,Ē and only 21 percent said she made ďmeaningful progress,Ē the poll shows. The remaining 16% were unsure or unaware of the trip.

    Even members of her own party and the White House criticized the VPís visit to Guatemala on June 7 and Mexico on June 8.

    Harris resisted a months-long bipartisan push to visit the U.S. southern border to witness the situation first-hand but relented last Friday.

    VP Harrisís overall approval and disapproval ratings are the sameó with 43 percent of voters rating her as either favorable (22 percent) or very favorable (21 percent) and 43 percent seeing her as unfavorable (13 percent) and very unfavorable (30 percent).
