(CNSNews.com) – A recent survey by Rasmussen Reports shows that 48% of likely U.S. voters feel that the federal government isn’t doing enough to secure the border. In addition, only 36% are satisfied with the government’s efforts to secure the border and reduce illegal immigration. 15% were unsure.

The national telephone and online survey of 1,000 “likely voters” was conducted on June 25-26. Rasmussen Reports asked, “Is the federal government doing enough to secure the border and reduce illegal immigration?”

Forty-eight percent said the government is not doing enough to secure the border, which is down from 74% in 2008. Thirty-six percent said the government is doing enough, which is up from 11% in December 2008.

Rasmussen’s latest immigration survey comes after the Department of Homeland Security’s ‘zero-tolerance’ border security policy received national media attention two weeks ago.

House and Senate Democrats have since proposed measures to end the separation of illegal border crossers from their children, with some calling to stop their detention altogether.
