Rasmussen Poll: Deportation Policy Not Tough Enough

While Obama-friendly stenographers in the press promote the idea that the administration has a “high rate of deportations”, 60 percent of the citizenry believes not enough homeward trips are happening. Perhaps the voters understand that the deport numbers are inflated to make Obama seem a serious law enforcement guy in order to advance the amnesty project.

But the President even admitted to an audience of Hispanic journalists in 2011 that the record repatriation numbers were “deceptive” because of phony baloney counting. He can’t help himself from bragging about how clever he thinks he is.

Below, the public wants lawbreaking illegal aliens sent home pronto.

60% Think U.S. Not Aggressive Enough In Deporting Illegal Immigrants, Rasmussen Reports, December 10, 2013

More than 20 House Democrats last week urged President Obama to halt the deportation of illegal immigrants until Congress passes a comprehensive immigration reform plan, but voters by a two-to-one margin oppose that idea. Most already think the federal government is not vigilant enough in deporting those who are in this country illegally.

Only 29% of Likely U.S. Voters think the government should stop deporting illegal immigrants until Congress passes an immigration reform plan. A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 57% oppose a halt to deportations. Fourteen percent (14%) are undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
