A Harvard University poll from January 2018 reveals that a large percentage of Democrats believe the U.S. border should be secured and that many Americans are in agreement on how the government should approach immigration and border security.

In light of the border wall battle in Washington, D.C., it might be helpful to remind politicians and bureaucrats where the American people stand on this important issue.

The Washington Times reports:

The findings reveal, for example, that eight out of 10 of all U.S. voters — 79 percent — say the U.S. needs secure borders; 93 percent of Republicans, 80 percent of independents and 68 percent of Democrats agree with that. 

Seventy-nine percent of voters believe in granting priority to those immigrants who can “contribute to America.” Broken down, 87 percent of Republicans agree with this merit-based approach, as well as , 79 percent of independents and 72 percent of Democrat.

Many Americans also oppose the lottery-based immigration system: 78 percent of Republicans, 65 percent of independents and 62 percent of Democrats.
