Voters strongly back Trump's immigration policies

Numbers USA:
Every time Pres. Trump tweets that any DACA deal has to include the elimination of Chain Migration and the Visa Lottery, he's speaking the mind of most Americans who say they are likely to vote in this fall's midterm elections, according to a new poll.

By nearly a 2-to-1 margin, likely voters said any legalization of young-adult illegal immigrants should include an end to Chain Migration of extended family members beyond spouse and minor children.

Here was the question posed by Pulse Opinion Research (results had a margin of sampling error of 3 percentage points):
If Congress decides to pass a bill to give young-adult ILLEGAL immigrants lifetime work permits and a path to citizenship, should the bill allow illegal immigrants to petition to obtain lifetime work permits for their extended families, or should the bill include an end to Chain Migration of extended families?

32% Allow work permits for extended families
57% Include an end to Chain Migration of extended families
12% Not sure
Those were the results after the survey defined "Chain Migration categories for extended family" by asking, "Do you favor or oppose allowing immigrants to bring in only their spouse and minor children and NOT their extended family?" The likely voters favored ending Chain Migration for all immigrants by a 57% to 30% margin.

The national survey found that twice as many voters want to eliminate the Visa Lottery as want to keep it.
...

By far more than a 2-to-1 margin, likely voters also said any legalization deal should require employers to use E-Verify to keep them from enticing future illegal immigration by giving jobs to illegal foreign workers.
...
There is more.

The media and many in Washington have tried to suppress the debate on immigration, but it is clear that voters want to do something about several aspects of the current system and that is one of the big reasons why they support President Trump.
