Voters Say It’s Easier for Illegal Immigrants to Get In, Stay In the U.S.

Voters still think it’s easier to enter and stay in the United States illegally than it is in most other countries.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 42% of Likely U.S. Voters believe it is easier to enter the United States illegally compared to most other nations in the world.  Just 19% say it’s harder, while 26% think the level of difficulty is about the same. Thirteen percent (13%) are not sure. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
