New Poll Shows Voter Support For Tough Border Controls

Politicians may be sanguine about the surge across America's borders, but voters aren't. A new Rasmussen Reports survey says, "A growing number of voters consider illegal immigration a serious problem and believe controlling the border is the most important thing the government can do, even if using the military is necessary."
That's quite a statement, but Rasmussen backs it up with numbers. Fully 77% of the 1,000 likely U.S. voters that Rasmussen polled say that illegal immigration is a serious problem. Only 19% say that it's not. And 63% think that gaining control of the border is more important than "legalizing the status of undocumented workers" already here.
Two things jump out: One, 58% of Americans believe that providing a pathway to citizenship for those already here will serve as a magnet for future illegal immigration. And 63% say that the military should be used to prevent illegal immigration along our border with Mexico.
