Addressing the U.S. Senate, Republican Alan Simpson made his views on immigration clear:
The American people are increasingly troubled about the impact legal immigration is having on their country. Poll after poll shows us this. The people have made it so very clear they believe the level of immigration is too high. The people have been saying more or less the same thing for a very long time. According to a recent article in the American Enterprise, which reviewed 11 major polls taken since 1955, well over 60 per cent of the American people favor a reduction in immigration, according to most polls since 1980 . . . Yet what do people see going on, year after year after year? They see steady increases. In 1953, 170,000 new legal immigrants. In 1963, 306,000; 1973, 400,000; 1983, 560,000; in 1993, 904,000. Thus, in these 40 years since 1953, the annual level of new immigrants has gone up fivefold, rising from 170,000 to 904,000.
