National Survey of 1,000 U.S. Likely Voters

Conducted June 26-27, 2016
By Rasmussen Reports


1* President Obama has ordered that nearly five million illegal immigrants be allowed to remain in this country legally and apply for jobs, but a tied U.S. Supreme Court has effectively stopped his plan from being carried out. Do you favor or oppose the president’s plan?


2* Is the U.S. government too aggressive or not aggressive enough in deporting those who are in this country illegally? Or is the number of deportations about right?


3* Suppose a woman enters the United States as an illegal immigrant and gives birth to a child in the United States. Should that child automatically become a citizen of the United States?


4* Should illegal immigrants who have American-born children be exempt from deportation?
