REDWOOD CITY, Calif. – Does illegal immigration threaten America’s traditional beliefs and customs? Most people in America think so, according to a new poll.

A new poll by Reuters/Ipsos shows more people in America, 70 percent, are deeply worried that undocumented immigrants endanger the country’s culture. 86 percent of Republicans hold that belief.

Despite immigration advocates saying that immigrants contribute to the economy, nearly two-thirds — 63 percent — in the poll say undocumented immigrants are an economic burden on the nation.

The survey also shows that 45 percent say the number of immigrants entering the country legally should be reduced. Conversely, 17 percent say more should be allowed to come, while 38 percent say the current flow of legal immigration should be kept the same.

    70% from American are worried that illegal will endanger American culture, new polls means that Americans are anti-illegal alien, want to close the border. That is the Republican Party agenda-close the border, Democrat agenda is open border.You already know,who is going to win come election.

    Legals and illegals foreigners coming to America are really destroying the culture , Not only by taking jobs away from citizen but also can not fully assimilate , once they settled they start flying their country flag in american soil , then build a monument of their heroes un- recognized or unknown in this country, at the work place they speak their own language and if they are told not to do so they sue the company they work for.

    So , really if you take a polls to the american people again might turn higher instead of just 70%. Many citizen are just sick of foreigners atittude . America is the most welcoming host in the world , but dont push them to errupt their patient , they will not tolerate much longer .You need to know that your the guest and they are your host.
