The majority of likely voters in 2018 midterm swing districts across the United States say immigration to the U.S. has made American life worse, a new poll reveals.
In the latest CBS News/YouGov Poll, which surveyed likely voters in 2018 midterm battleground districts, Americans by a majority say overall immigration to the country is making their life worse off.
About 56 percent of likely voters said immigration is making their area “worse” while only 17 percent say their area has been made “better” because of immigration.
Currently, the U.S. admits more than 1.5 million legal and illegal immigrants every year, with more than 70 percent coming to the country through the process known as “chain migration” whereby newly naturalized citizens can bring an unlimited number of foreign relatives to the U.S. In the next 20 years, the current U.S. legal immigration system is on track to import roughly 15 million new foreign-born voters. Between seven and eight million of those foreign-born voters will arrive in the U.S. through chain migration.
A majority of men and women likely voters in the swing district say immigration is hurting American life, rather than improving the quality of their neighborhoods and communities.
Nearly 60 percent of male likely voters and 53 percent of female likely voters in the swing districts say immigration is having a negative impact on life in America.
New CBS/YouGov poll:
Every race, age, and sex believe immigration has had a more negative impact on their community than positive.

The poll comes as the Republican establishment and their donors have refused to take up the issue of reducing immigration to the U.S., despite mass legal immigration being vastly unpopular with Americans.
As Breitbart News has reported, illegal immigration has contributed to a booming “anchor baby” population, where the children of illegal aliens are granted U.S. citizenship simply for being born within the parameters of the country.

There are at least 4.5 million anchor babies in the U.S. under the age of 18-years-old, according to the Congressional Budget Office (CBO). This estimate does not include the potentially millions of anchor babies who are older than 18-years-old, nor does it include the anchor babies who are living overseas with their deported foreign parents.
The 4.5 million anchor babies estimate exceeds the four million American children born every year. In the next decade, the CBO estimates that there will be at least another 600,000 anchor babies born in the U.S., which would put the anchor baby population on track to exceed annual American births — should the U.S. birth rate not increase — by more than one million anchor babies.
Likewise, mass legal immigration has imported more than 10 million legal immigrants to the U.S. over the last decade, a population that exceeds the number of residents living in New York City, Breitbart News reported.
