67% believe Illegal Immigrants Major Strain – Ras

Not that there was need for validation, but its good to print these things out and have ’em handy when going door to door or writing newspapers.

Rasmussen reports asked the question “Are illegal immigrants a significant strain on the U.S. budget?”
67% responded yes, 23% no, and 9% not sure.

Another survey question asked ” Does the availability of government money and services draw illegal immigrants to the United States?”
Again two thirds respond yes. 66% Yes, 19% No, 15% Not sure

O.K., so how do we deal with the strain? Rasmussen asked:

“When it comes to immigration reform, which is more important… gaining control of the border or legalizing the status of undocumented workers already living in the United States?”

Should we be a) Gaining control of the border- 68 percent voted for this one; or b) Legalizing the status of undocumented workers already living in the United States – 26 percentthought this was the way to go. And 6 percent had a tough time with this one so were ‘not sure’.

Rasmussen also breaks it down how the question fell on party lines and asked questions about how soon legislators might tackle the issue.
