In total, 60 percent of respondents said they were dissatisfied with the current levels of immigration to the United States. 33 percent said they were satisfied with current levels.
But among those who are dissatisfied with current immigration levels, 39 percent said they want less immigration, 14 percent say they want current levels to say the same, but only 7 percent say they want immigration levels to increase.

(Yes, 14 percent of Americans say they are dissatisfied with current immigration levels, but also say they want immigration levels to stay the same. I don’t get it either.)
Believe it or not, that 7 percent actually represents the highest level of support for increased immigration in the history of Gallup’s polling. In January of 2007, only 3 percent said the same. Since last year, the percent of Americans saying they are dissatisfied with current immigration levels has jumped from 54% to 60%.
