There are two new polls out showing just how much you think immigration is impacting the country.
According to Gallup, 23% a record, told Gallup that immigration is the most important problem facing the country. David Ray with the Federation for American Immigration Reform told KTRH that's not a surprise.
“Clearly the issue drove America to the polls in 2016. It remains at high levels and the border is completely out of control,” Ray said.
Another Gallup survey shows a majority of working class Americans think high immigration rates are driving up crime. Ray says the numbers prove it.
“Roughly 25% of the federal prison population is comprised of foreign born criminals costing $1.4 billion every year,” Ray stated.
Seventy-three percent of Republican voters, and 65% who call themselves conservative say immigration is making crime worse today.
