Just 31% Oppose Plan to Send Illegals to Sanctuary Communities

Voters still aren’t eager to live in so-called sanctuary communities, and they tend to support President Trump’s proposal to send illegal immigrants to those communities.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 36% of Likely U.S. Voters favor the community they live in declaring itself a sanctuary for illegal immigrants. Just over half (51%) don’t want to live in a sanctuary community that refuses to cooperate with federal immigration authorities. Thirteen percent (13%) are not sure. These findings haven’t changed over the past two years. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
