National Survey of 1,000 Likely Voters
Conducted May 11-12, 2011
By Rasmussen Reports



1* How closely have you followed news reports about the issue of illegal immigration?


2* Is the U.S. border with Mexico very secure, somewhat secure, not very secure, or not at all secure?


3* Should the U.S. military be used along the border with Mexico to prevent illegal immigration?


4* Most voters say securing the border is a higher priority than addressing the status of illegal immigrants already in the country. Is the border now secure enough to begin dealing with the issue of illegal immigrants already living in the United States?


5* Is it possible to end illegal immigration?
