Americans concern about immigration and the impact it has on taxes and crime has soared to the highest levels ever, according to a new survey.

“Americans' concern with immigration continues to be heightened, as 23% name it the most important problem facing the country. This is by one percentage point the highest Gallup has ever measured for the issue since it first began recording mentions of immigration in 1993,” Gallup said.

The result comes following President Donald Trump impending ICE raids across the country and the explosion of illegal immigration on the U.S.-Mexico border.

Gallup found that although Americans worry about immigration, their views are mixed concerning immigrants.

According to The Washington Examiner: For example, they cite crime and taxes as one of the top reasons they are negative on immigration. But they also said that immigrants are good for the economy.

And they disagree on the levels of immigration into the United States. Said Gallup, “Asked their preferences for U.S. immigration levels, 37% of Americans say it should be kept at its present level, while more say it should be decreased (35%) than increased (27%).”

Concerns about the government remain the top problem cited by Americans, but only by three points, a drop of 9 points since February.

Last month, Neon Nettle reported only 13 percent of Americans were aware of the severity of the illegal immigration crisis at the US border with Mexico, a poll revealed.

The latest Harvard/Harris survey found that less than two-in-15 voters in the United States realize the soaring levels of illegal immigration across the US Southern Border.

When US citizens are asked how many illegal aliens are crossing the border, the poll reveals that only about 13 percent answered correctly.

Around 76 percent of Americans, however, believe that levels of illegal immigration are far lower than they actually are.

In April alone, U.S. Border Patrol agents apprehended nearly 100,000 illegal border crossers.
