According to a recent poll, a majority of Americans express a desire to restrict the number of migrants eligible to apply for asylum and advocate for an increase in the recruitment of Border Patrol agents.

A recent poll conducted by the Associated Press and National Opinion Research Center (NORC) at the University of Chicago revealed an interesting perspective among Americans.

According to the survey, a majority of 53% of respondents expressed their belief in the necessity of placing limits on the number of migrants seeking asylum.

Opinions on the issue were divided along partisan lines, as a majority of Republicans (75%) and a slight majority of Independents (51%) expressed support for limiting the number. In contrast, only 35% of Democrats agreed with this stance.

Public opinion on the matter of hiring more Border Patrol agents was found to be quite diverse. A significant majority of Americans, 64% to be exact, expressed their support for this idea.

Interestingly, this support was not limited to one political party, as 54% of Democrats, 79% of Republicans, and 56% of Independents all favored the notion.

Increasing the number of immigration judges is a widely favored proposal, backed by a majority of Americans, with both Republicans and Democrats showing strong support.

Opinions on the construction of a wall along the southern border of the United States varied significantly along partisan lines.

Only a small fraction of Democrats, 12%, expressed support for this policy, in stark contrast to the majority of Republicans, 77%, who were in favor. Overall, 42% of Americans held the view that a wall should be built.

According to recent findings, Democrats tend to view immigration as a less significant issue compared to other topics.

However, a majority of Democrats, specifically 52%, hold positive opinions about mass immigration, believing that it contributes to the enrichment of American culture and values.
