Leading scholars in the field of crimmigration pose that othering narratives fuel the growth of the immigration industrial complex. This analysis adds to this body of work by evaluating the effect of conservative media narratives on anti-immigrant sentiment. Using data from the 2016 American National Election Survey, I utilize multinomial logistic regression techniques to examine how an individual’s level of conservative media consumption influences their support for punitive immigration policies or nativist sentiments. The analysis highlights that net of demographic and socioeconomic factors, individuals who regularly follow any conservative media are significantly more likely to support punitive immigration policies and to harbor nativist sentiments. Similar to previous studies, the results from this analysis also indicate that race, age and education are significant predictors of anti-immigrant sentiment.
