(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.
