"Build That Wall!"A border enforcement advocacy organization says exit polling reveals that the radical immigration policies laid out by Biden-Harris ticket during the campaign are clearly not what the voters wanted.

Breitbart reports that exit polling conducted by Zogby Analytics on behalf of the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR) found that majorities of 2020 voters strongly favor strong border enforcement and limited immigration —countering any narrative that Joe Biden's immigration proposals were popular with voters.

"With regard to the policies that they laid out during the campaign, they're probably the last thing that the country needs at this point, and clearly not what the voters wanted," says Ira Mehlman, spokesman for FAIR.

He adds that the exit polling reveals these high percentages cut across party, racial, and ethnic lines.

"They believe that keeping the border under control under the circumstances we're now facing is extremely warranted, that they think that we should be limiting the number of people who are coming in to work in this country at a time when American workers are in as a bad a shape as they're in," Mehlman relays.

In contrast to Joe Biden's stance, President Trump's immigration positions enjoy near universal support from the Republican base as well as significant support from Democrats and Independents.
