How does the Hispanic population in the U.S. feel about increasing legal immigration in America? According to Breitbart, a Gallup poll has revealed that roughly 2 out of 3 Hispanics are not in favor of it.

Breaking that number down, 34% of Hispanics born in the U.S. are not in favor of increasing immigration and 33% of Hispanics who live here but not were not born here are not in favor. In fact, 31% of foreign-born Hispanics actually want to decrease immigration.

As it is right now, each year the U.S. lets in a million legal immigrants, a million migrant workers, and about 300,000 illegal immigrants. According to Breitbart, a 2013 Rasmussen poll revealed that only 10% of American even know that America accepts a million legal immigrants a year.

Overall, these polling results look good for Donald Trump, who favors a hardline on immigration, and not so good for Jeb Bush, who, according to The Hill, appears to want to increase immigration into the U.S.
