Another Poll Shows Voters Overwhelmingly Support Immigration Enforcement

A new Rasmussen Reports poll shows that likely voters overwhelming support immigration enforcement over President Obama’s non-enforcement policies. The survey of 1,000 likely voters, conducted April 1-2, found that 62% believe the Obama Administration is “not aggressive enough” in deporting illegal aliens. (Rasmussen Reports Poll, Apr. 6, 2015) This is up from 56% in November (right after the election) and from 52% last April. (See Rasmussen Reports Poll, Nov. 18, 2014; Rasmussen Reports Poll, Apr. 30, 2014) By comparison, just 15% of likely voters in the recent poll believe “the number of deportations [is]about right” and 16% think the government is “too aggressive” in deporting illegal aliens.

    Unfortunately this administration could care less what the American people think or want. They are only interested in their own liberal agenda and pandering to special interests and undocumented Democrats.

    Obama’s immigration policies (or lack of) is just another move by Obama to continue his destruction of the USA by diluting the population of knowledgeable voters with his “no speak a da English” followers.

    “Immigration Enforcement” can be facilitated by upholding the existing laws, and providing stiff fines and jail time for American businesses hiring illegal immigrants. I find it remarkable that so few employers of illegal immigrants are held accountable. It is your civic duty to report those American enterprises that are in violation.
