In the fall, Rasmussen Reports released the results of a national poll concerning Americans’ attitudes toward illegal immigration. Not surprisingly, the poll received very little, if any attention from the national press.
Participants were asked whether or not they believed the federal government will actually secure the border, if so-called ‘comprehensive immigration reform’ (amnesty) is passed.
The poll found only five percent (5%) of Likely U.S. Voters “say the government is Very Likely to secure the border if it’s part of legislation that would give legal status to those already here illegally.”
