Late. Joe Manchin’s (D-WV) voters in West Virginia are deeply opposed to amnesty for illegal aliens and generally want less legal immigration to the United States, a new poll shows.
A Rasmussen reports examination reveals that a large majority of West Virginia voters do not support an amnesty plan slipped into President Joe Biden’s “Build Back Better Act,” which would allow close to seven million illegal aliens to secure work permits and driver’s licenses.
About 63 percent of West Virginia voters said they do not support the amnesty plan, while about 31 percent said they support the plan. A large majority across racial boundaries said they are against the amnesty, including 74 percent of Hispanics, 71 percent of black Americans and 62 percent of white Americans.
The amnesty plan is particularly opposed by West Virginia swing voters. About 66 percent said they do not support the plan, while only 25 percent said they do.
In addition, 65 percent of voters in West Virginia said they would be less likely to vote for Manchin or other politicians who support the amnesty in the Build Back Better Act.
When it comes to legal immigration levels, where about 1.2 million foreign nationals are granted green cards each year and another million get visas to work in the United States, voters in West Virginia support reductions.
About 7-in-10 legal immigrants arrive, for example, through the process known as “chain migration,” where naturalized U.S. citizens can bring an unlimited number of foreign relatives to the United States on green cards.
About 63 percent of West Virginia voters said they are opposed to the policy, and 72 percent do not want chain migration extended to include illegal aliens who would be eligible for the amnesty plan included in the Build Back Better Act.
Majorities of Republicans, Democrats and swinging voters in West Virginia said they are against chain migration.
The vote comes as a similar vote have shown that Arizona likely voters are mostly against the amnesty plan. Support from Manchin, which faces re-election in 2024, along with Sens. Mark Kelly (D-AZ) and Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ) are crucial to Bidens Build Back Better Act.
The legislation, with the help of 28 vulnerable House Democrats, was passed out of the House last week after 32 House and Senate Republicans helped Biden pass its $ 1.2 trillion infrastructure package.
The survey was conducted from November 16 and 17 and surveyed nearly 1,200 likely voters from West Virginia. The measurement has an error margin of +/- three percentage points.
