According to a new Pew Research poll, 75 percent of Americans think our immigration system either needs major changes or a complete redesign. From Pew:
No other part of our government’s bureaucracy, including our tax system and health care system, is seen as more broken than our immigration system. It is viewed as almost uniquely dysfunctional.
While it is true that Gallup found Americans don’t think immigration is the most pressing issue right now during a weak economy, they still see it as an issue that is in serious need of big reform.
Congress might not be focused on what Americans feel is most important right now, but it is unlikely voters think Congress is wasting its time on immigration.
