158 Million Migrants Planning to Move to the US - Unfazed by Trump’s Policies
Donald Trump's immigration policies is not scaring off immigrants
Despite many left-leaning news outlets suggesting President Donald Trump's immigration policies is scaring off immigrants, the United States is still the top pick for migrants seeking a new home, according to a new report.
Countries like Canada and parts of Europe are not the preferred choice.
In October, Neon Nettle reported many migrants refused Mexico’s President Enrique Pena Nieto's generous offer to apply for refugee status in their home country, providing they agreed to stay in the two southern states.
So the top pick remains the US.
A massive 158 Million migrants, a number more significant than the population of Russia, want to relocate to the US, with around 1 percent of all those in the world trying to find a new home.
According to a worldwide survey, Gallup found that 15 percent of the world, in other words, 758 million, want to move.
Here is the FULL list:
158 million chose the U.S.
47 million Canada.
42 million Germany.
36 million France or Australia.
34 million the United Kingdom.
24 million Saudi Arabia.
21 million Spain.
17 million Japan.
15 million Italy.
Gallup claimed the United States had suffered due to many not like Donald Trump.
But according to Vox: Less immigrant families are accepting federal food stamps — even though no confirmed changes have been made to the program or its eligibility rules.
But despite them not liking the Us President, they still wanted to move.
“Although the image of U.S. leadership took a beating between 2016 and 2017, the U.S. continues to be the most desired destination country for potential migrants,” Gallup said.
Gallup also noted that mass desire from of migrants wanting to move to the US does not necessarily mean that it will see an increase of 50 percent in the population.
“While this increase in the desire to migrate may set off alarms among those who would like to see fewer people on the move, Gallup typically finds that the percentage of those who have plans to move is much lower than the percentage who would like to move,” said the survey company.
But President Donald Trump's strict immigration policies could stem the influx of Central American migrants as many are now choosing to seem refuge in Mexico.
As the Trump administration made border security a priority, the White House completed a 'zero tolerance' on immigration enforcement, which persecuted anyone attempting to enter the U.S illegally.
Only time will tell.
