Most voters think the government should stop the caravan of Central Americans now at the Mexican border from entering the United States. Even more say failing to stop them will lead to more illegal immigration.
Hundreds of people from Central America who have come across Mexico in a highly publicized group are threatening to enter the United States illegally any day now. The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 54% of Likely U.S. Voters believe the U.S. government should stop them all from entering. Thirty-seven percent (37%) disagree and say the government should allow them to enter this country temporarily until each of their cases can be individually reviewed.
