Voters Still Worry About Illegal Immigration But Are Divided By The Wall

Friday, August 09, 2019

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. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
