Poll: A majority of rural Nebraskans don’t believe the influx of Hispanic immigrants has been good for the state
They also think undocumented immigrants should be deported, and that communities should not relay important information in Spanish, the poll shows.
“I was a little surprised,” by the extent of the anti-immigration sentiment expressed by rural Nebraskans, said Rebecca Vogt, project manager for the Nebraska Rural Poll.
The poll was conducted by the University of Nebraska-Lincoln Center for Applied Rural Innovation.
“I live in a rural community,” Vogt said, “so I knew there would be some sentiment against, but maybe not to this extent.”
Just 14 percent of respondents said Latin American immigration had been good for rural Nebraska, while 56 percent disagreed.
