According to the latest numbers from Pew, the rabid negativity spewed in the direction of immigrants (legal and especially illegal) is not necessarily reflective of the views held by the general population. “Large majorities of those surveyed said they believe that undocumented immigrants fill jobs U.S. citizens don’t want, are as honest and hardworking as U.S. citizens and are no more likely than U.S. citizens to commit serious crimes.” And fewer people are in favor of a border wall between the US and Mexico today than when Trump made it a centerpiece of his campaign.
