Seventy Percent of Americans Say Immigration is a Cultural Threat
“As President Barack Obama considers sidestepping Congress to loosen U.S. immigration policy, a Reuters/Ipsos poll shows Americans are deeply worried that illegal immigration is threatening the nation’s culture and economy,” Reuters reports.
“Seventy percent of Americans – including 86 percent of Republicans – believe undocumented immigrants threaten traditional U.S. beliefs and customs, according to the poll.”

These are our kids,’ Biden said,” according to the AP.
