Voters are even more worried about illegal immigration and question the federal government’s commitment to stopping it. But they also remain closely divided over the need for – and effectiveness of - a southern border wall.
A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 73% of Likely U.S. Voters consider illegal immigration a serious problem in America, with 47% who say it’s Very Serious. This marks the highest level of concern in four years. Just 25% disagree and regard illegal immigration as not a serious issue, although only six percent (6%) think it’s Not At All Serious.
