WASHINGTON, Aug. 24 (Xinhua) -- Despite Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump's emphasis on the harmful effects of immigration, there has been no surge in the percentage of Americans wanting to see immigration levels decreased, Gallup found in a poll Wednesday.

Thirty-eight percent of U.S. adults say the level of immigration should be decreased, similar to recent years, while an equal percentage saying immigration should be kept at its present level. The relatively small percentage of Americans who want immigration increased, however, has edged down this year to 21 percent, Gallup found.

Despite the strong rhetoric on immigration emanating from the Trump campaign, there has been no uptick in the past year of those wanting to see immigration decreased, suggesting that Trump is not so much changing public opinion, Gallup found.

The poll comes as immigration is one of the main focal points of the 2016 race for the White House, with Trump saying he wants to build a wall to keep out illegal migrants from the southern border and saying he wants to deport the millions of illegals already in the United States.

Trump has also proposed restricting legal immigration among those who come from certain regions of the world with a history of exporting terrorism, who don't pass an ideology test or who identify with the Muslim faith, Gallup noted.

Since 2012, Americans generally have remained split between maintaining the current level of immigration and decreasing immigration, with less interest in increasing immigration. By contrast, before 2012 -- and particularly in the years immediately after the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks on New York and Washington -- Americans tended to be more in favor of decreased immigration, Gallup found.

Republicans and conservatives are most likely to want immigration decreased, while Democrats and liberals are least likely to want it decreased, Gallup found.

A separate question in the poll confirms that most Americans, at 72 percent, believe that immigration is a ""good thing for this country today.""

Hollande said the "cruel and cowardly" murder of Herve Gourdel would only strengthen France's resolve to pursue its air war against the Islamic State group in Iraq.

The 55-year-old was kidnapped on Sunday by Jund al-Khilifa, or "Soldiers of the Caliphate," while hiking in a national park that was once a magnet for tourists but later became a sanctuary for Islamists

His beheading followed France's rejection of the group's 24-hour ultimatum to halt its air raids in Iraq -- part of a US-led campaign against IS.

Hollande Dion Lewis Jersey , whose government was the first to join Washington in carrying out air strikes against the jihadists, pledged that France would stay the course.

"The fight against terrorism must continue and be stepped up."

US President Barack Obama voiced solidarity with France over the killing, which came after two American journalists and a British air worker were beheaded by IS in similar videotaped executions.

Chairing a special UN Security Council meeting, Obama looked at his French counterpart and said: "We stand with you and the French people as you grieve this terrible loss and as you stand up against terror in defence of liberty."

- 'Message with Blood' -

The video Brynden Trawick Jersey , entitled "A Message with Blood to the French Government", employs a similar style to those used in previous videos by IS showing the beheadings of three Western hostages.

It begins with a clip of Hollande at a press conference where he announced strikes against IS in Iraq.

The Frenchman briefly expresses his love for his family before one of the jihadists reads a speech in which he denounces the actions of the "French criminal crusaders" against Muslims in Algeria Harold Landry Jersey , Mali and Iraq.

The jihadist says the beheading is to "avenge the victims in Algeria... and support the caliphate" proclaimed by IS in Iraq and Syria.

The United States has built a coalition of more than 50 nations to fight IS, after the jihadists seized large parts of Syria and Iraq and committed widespread atrocities, including beheadings and crucifixions.
