Majority in U.S. and EU see immigrants as a problem

The Transatlantic Trends survey is sponsored by several institutions in the United States and Europe.  Most Europeans and Americans believe that immigration is a problem rather than an advantage for their respective countries, according to a survey published Thursday by a group of foundations.  The survey shows that citizens whose personal situation worsened due to the economic crisis in the past two years believe that immigrants are to blame for it.  65% of Britons believe that immigrants are a problem, followed by Spanish (53%) and Americans (52%), and then by French (42%), German and Dutch (39%).  By contrast, only one in four Canadians (27%) holds this view, according to the survey, conducted in 2010 in eight countries.  Also, a majority (73%) of Americans believe that the management of immigration by the government is wrong, a percentage similar to the UK or Spain.  Despite the negative view of immigrants, Americans are divided on whether to legalize them. 47% is against it, 45% in favor.

In Europe, 50% of Germans are in favor of giving them a legal status, but most British, Italian and Spanish want illegal immigrants leave the country. A majority of Americans think that Hispanics (the largest minority) are well integrated in their society, contrary to what Europeans think of Muslims.

One Response to “Majority in U.S. and EU see Immigrants as a Problem”

    RE; Mexican Ambassador:

    The Mexican ambassador is out of touch with the reality with what he speaks of in regards to the state of Georgia.
    Over the years thousands of pregnant Mexican women have come to the Untied States to give birth to their babies for one reason only….to have an anchor baby in this country.
    As far as “poisoning” the relationship between the two countries, the American government along with Mexico has a relationship that is very much alive and well, one only needs to look at the pourous borders between the two countries.
    What has been “poisoned” is the majority of the American peoples normally generous and benovelant feelings and behavior to the less fortunates of these illegal aliens.

    This current administration is beyond it’s 50% mark and has less than two years remaining. Congress has been put on notice by the people that any vote for an amnesty or the lesser Dream Act will end their career as a congressman or woman.
    Mexico should clean up it’s own act before critizing what individual states are doing to protect their number one priority….legal natural born American citizens.

    As an afterthought, over the years I and many others have noticed that Mexico has never offered any monatary compensation to defray the expenses that the illegal aliens have cost the indivudal states, for that matter neither has the U.S. government.

    The will of the American people will prevail in the end!
