    Sentence

    Many people think immigration policies should be more strict.

    Re: Sentence

    No teacher.

    What makes you think that your sentence is not good?

    Well, there are always other possibilities.
    You could also say:
    A lot of people think immigration policies should be stricter.

    But as said, there are plenty of other possibilities...

    Re: Sentence

    May I add it also depends on the circumstances?
    E.g.
    1)You are talking/writing to a friend (informal context)

    A lot/Lots of people think immigration policies should be stricter/more strict.

    You are giving a talk/writing a formal text (letter, essay, etc...) (formal context)

    Many (people) think (hold, maintain, find ...) that immigration policies should be stricter/more strict


    Hope it's clear.
