• Majority Say Feds TOO SOFT On Deportations

    It’s pure gold how just one day after we report on a new program that allows illegal alien children to fly to the U.S. from Central America on the taxpayer’s dime, a new Rasmussen Reports survey shows that a growing number of Americans believe the Obama administration isn’t doing enough to kick people who don’t belong in the country out.

    The survey’s findings could be directly linked to Obama’s overtly desperate efforts to downplay the seemingly annual flood of minors coming across the U.S.-Mexico border. Either way, the American people are concerned about the security of the country and the southern border  Many say they want a federal government that will be more aggressive in its deportation efforts.

    Here are the most compelling findings in the new Rasmussen Reports survey released Monday:

    More voters than ever feel the United States is not aggressive enough in deporting those who are here illegally, even as President Obama continues to push his plan to make up to five million illegal immigrants safe from deportation.

    Just 16% of Likely U.S. Voters think the U.S. government is too aggressive in deporting those who are in the country illegally. A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 62% believe the government is not aggressive enough in deporting these illegal immigrants, up from 52% a year ago and 56% in November. Fifteen percent (15%) feel the current number of deportations is about right.

    Overall, the survey also showed public concern over how much government spend providing welfare benefits to illegal immigrants.

    A whopping 83 percent said persons should be required to prove that they are “legally allowed” to be in the country before receiving government benefits.
