A new “California Survey on Othering and Belonging” shows that a majority of Californians in the sanctuary state actually believe its important to increase U.S. deportations of illegal aliens.

Released Wednesday, the UC Berkeley Hass Institute for a Fair and Inclusive Society survey shows that “59% find it important to increase deportations of those here without documentation.”

A quarter (24%) of Californians surveyed call it “very important” for the U.S. to increase deportations of illegal aliens, while another 35% deem it “somewhat important.”

The findings reflect Californians’ increasing opposition to the state’s sanctuary policies shielding illegal aliens from arrest, the San Francisco Bay Area’s Mercury News reports:

“The results come as a growing number of Southern California cities, including Escondido in San Diego County and Los Alamitos in Orange County, are rebelling against the state’s sanctuary policies.”
