The liberal media may be focusing on the U.S. situation with Russia, but according to a recent Gallup poll, Americans are much more concerned about illegal immigration.

According to Gallup:

Immigration (Immigration/Illegal Immigration) has risen to the top of the list when Americans are asked to name the most important problem facing the nation -- edging out the government, which has been the top issue each month since January 2017. The 22% of Americans in July who say immigration is the top problem is up from 14% in June and is the highest percentage naming that issue in Gallup's history of asking the "most important problem" question. The previous high had been 19%.

Combine that with a Gallup poll showing that Americans' views of U.S. relations with Mexico are at new lows, with 26% saying the country is an enemy to the U.S.  - and it’s clear to see that America’s southern border is on people’s minds.
