Monday, October 04, 2010
Most voters in Florida feel that the current policies of the federal government encourage illegal immigrants to enter the United States. They also believe that the federal government should leave it up to individual states to deal with the problem.
A new Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of Likely Voters in the state finds that 59% say the policies and practices of the federal government encourage people to enter the country illegally. Twenty-five percent (25%) disagree, while 16% are not sure. (To see survey question wording, click here).
