Americans favor decreasing immigration

Hillary Clinton is firmly in favor of increasing immigration, and Republicans are scared of the issue. But the public is against immigration:
“Do you think the number of immigrants to America nowadays should be: 1) Increased a lot, 2) Increased a little, 3) Remain the same as it is, 4) Reduced a little, or 5) Reduced a lot.” …

So everybody except Asians and the foreign-born favors reducing the numbers of immigrants to America. Hispanics are solidly so, although not as much as blacks and whites. Women are particularly anti-immigration. Every age group wants the number of immigrants reduced, and every age group over 29 is similar, suggesting it’s not a generation thing, it’s a maturity thing.
