FOX NEWS POLL: MAJORITY OF AMERICANS SUPPORT TRUMP IMMIGRATION PLANS
A new Fox News poll shows that a majority of Americans favor the immigration and deportation plans proposed by Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump.
According to the just-released Fox News poll, 52% of Americans support Trump’s plan to deport several million illegal immigrants back to their home countries who have entered the United States on an unlawful basis. 40% are opposed to the Trump plan.
When broken down and analyzed by political party affiliation, 70% of Republicans support Trump’s plan and 24% of Republicans oppose it. 34% of Democrats support Trump’s plan and 58% of Democrats oppose it.
Voters in the Fox News poll also were asked about Donald Trump’s plan to build a wall on the United States border with Mexico.
50% of Americans favored Trump’s plan to build a wall. 47% opposed it.
When broken down and analyzed by political party affiliation, 71% of Republicans support Trump’s plan to build a wall on the border with Mexico and 26% of Republicans oppose it. 27% of Democrats support Trump’s plan to build the wall and 69% of Democrats oppose it.
A separate question in the Fox News poll asked voters about the most important problem facing the United States today.
Terrorism was listed as the nation’s most important problem with 24% of the vote. Given the recent Paris attacks which killed at least 130 people, and the role of immigration and refugee issues related to the Paris attacks, given the fact that at least a pair of the suicide bombers held Syrian passports and entered the European Union with other Syrian refugees, then the listing of terrorism as the nation’s most important problem lends additional veracity to the other poll numbers showing majority support for Trump’s immigration plans, and his rise in various other polls in the days after the Paris attacks.
The Fox News poll was conducted among 1,016 registered voters nationwide between November 16-19, 2015.
The Fox News poll numbers also verify what Legal Immigrants For America (LIFA) has seen and heard from Americans from coast to coast. Americans are fed up with an administration which does not support legal immigration, which does not enforce immigration laws, and which is not interested in protecting our borders or our citizens. That is why a majority of Americans in the Fox News poll support Donald Trump’s immigration policies and those of any other candidate who embraces similar, strong immigration and refugee policies.
Support LIFA as we lobby all presidential candidates to promote legal immigration, enforce immigration laws, strengthen our borders, build a wall, end amnesty, and defund sanctuary cities!
