DEMOCRATS AND THE LEFT ON THE WRONG SIDE AGAIN …
According to a recent Rasmussen poll, 55% of Americans are opposed to getting rid of ICE, Immigration and Customs Enforcement, while only 25% are in favor. After all of the MSM and Democrat blitz against President Donald Trump on illegal immigration policy, Americans can see through the BS. Americans realize that Trump is doing the same thing as the three Presidents who preceded him, including Obama. But for some reason the LEFT, MSM and Democrats were silent when that occurred. Now with all the cries from the LEFT and Democrat politicians to abolish ICE, a majority of Americans say no. 69% of Republicans and 53% of voters not affiliated with either major political party oppose getting rid of ICE. Immigration is said to be a top issue going into the 2018 midterm elections and the Democrats are on the wrong side of most Americans.
A growing number of Democrats are calling for abolishing the federal Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency, but even among voters in their own party, there’s not much support for the idea. Maybe that’s because voters think the government needs to be even more aggressive in deporting illegal immigrants.
A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that only 25% of Likely U.S. Voters favor getting rid of ICE whose duties include border control. Fifty-five percent (55%) are opposed. Twenty percent (20%) are undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
Sixty-nine percent (69%) of Republicans and 53% of voters not affiliated with either major political party oppose getting rid of ICE. Democrats agree by a narrower 44% to 36% margin.
Thirty-three percent (33%) of all voters believe the U.S. government is too aggressive in deporting those who are in this country illegally. But a plurality (46%) disagrees and says the government isn’t aggressive enough. Just 13% consider the current number of deportations as about right.
