51% Favor Using NAFTA To Stop Illegal Drugs, Immigrants from Mexico

Voters here are strongly critical of Mexico’s efforts to keep illegal drugs and illegal immigrants out of the United States, and just over half agree with President Trump that NAFTA is a good weapon to use to make our southern neighbor clean up its act.

The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that just 16% of Likely U.S. Voters believe the Mexican government has been aggressive enough in stopping the flow of illegal immigrants into the United States. Sixty-two percent (62%) disagree and say Mexico has not been aggressive enough. Twenty-one percent (21%) are undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
