A Harvard/Harris poll conducted March 24-26, 2020, of 2,410 registered American voters has revealed that 83 percent—five in six—said they favor ending all immigration from Mexico until the Wuhan virus crisis is over.
Breaking down the results by race and ethnicity and party affiliation, the poll showed the overwhelming extent to which voters in the following groups supported a moratorium on Mexican immigration:
- Hispanics: 75 percent support a moratorium
- Blacks: 77 percent
- Democrats: 73 percent
- Swing voters: 84 percent
- Republicans: 93 percent
According to John Binder of Breitbart News, even among the most liberal voters, nearly 70 percent said they would support such a measure, as well as 74 percent of Clinton voters in 2016.
Binder notes that Mexico, which had been slow to respond to the crisis, currently has nearly 1,000 confirmed infections with 20 deaths and 938 active cases.
Binder also says the recent decision by the Department of State to fast-track the admission of more Mexican workers under the H-2B and H-2A visa programs flies in the face of these results. While American voters overwhelmingly want a moratorium on Mexican immigration, our politically tone-deaf State Department, bowing to the demands of the donor business class, has chosen to go in the opposite direction.
