(CNSNews.com) -- A recent Harvard- Harris poll found that 61% of registered voters believe that illegal aliens with children should not be allowed to stay in the United States but “sent home” to their native country.

In the June 24-25 online survey of 1,448 registered voters,  Harvard-Harris asked, “Do you think that parents with children who make it across our border illegally should be allowed to stay in the country or sent home?” 

Sixty-one percent said “sent home,” and 39% said, “stay in the country.”

In addition, the survey asked, “Do you think that people who illegally cross into the country should be prosecuted for illegally entering or not?”

Fifty-three percent said, “prosecuted,” and 47% said, “not prosecuted.”

For the online survey, Harvard-Harris contacted 1,448 registered voters. “The results reflect a nationally representative sample,” said Harvard-Harris. “Results were weighted for age within gender, region, race/ethnicity, marital status, household size, income, employment, political party, political ideology, and education where necessary to align them with their actual proportions in the population. Propensity score weighting was also used to adjust for respondents’ propensity to be online.”

“Mark Penn and Stephen Ansolabehere supervise the Harvard Harris Poll,” according to the group’s website. “Penn served as President Clinton’s pollster for 6 years. Ansolabehere is Professor of Government at Harvard and runs the the Harvard Center for American Political Studies (CAPS). The Harvard-Harris Poll is a collaboration of Harvard CAPS and The Harris Poll.”
