Majority of Americans believe US government encourages illegal immigration

According to a Rasmussen Reports survey, 57% of likely voters think that government policies spur illegal immigration. 21% believe the federal government does not encourage illegal immigration, and 22% are not certain either way. The poll was conducted February 2-3 and included 1,000 likely voters and has a +/- 3 % margin of error...

...68% of respondents prioritize securing the border over legalization of the undocumented workers, and only 25% have the opposite view...

...64% think U.S. military should be used along the border to stop illegal immigration...

These folks are obviously still hung up on that quaint “WE THE PEOPLE” thing.

Well, If I left the door to my house wide open, money and valuables laying about in plain view, my credit cards on the table, my checkbook next to them, and the lights on and the garage door open with no car in sight, would people consider I had 'invited' whatever evil befell my property?

You bet they would!

The border is wide open...

“... if I left the door to my house wide open...”

It is even worse than that... you also gave them a map to your house and awarded them after robbing you with free housing, education, WIC, etc... IMHO

5* Which is the better approach to dealing with illegal immigration—allowing individual states to act on their own to enforce immigration laws or relying upon the federal government to enforce immigration laws?

This was a pretty get survey until the got to the last question. It is absurd to even suggest that the feds can in any way be relied upon to enforce immigration law. The best description of the feds approach to immigration law is a calculated and deliberate negligence in enforcing the law.

So this is a totally bogus result:

And finally, 47% believe immigration laws should be enforced by the federal government, 44% believe individual states should enforce the laws.

I can only respond to what I see— and to what I have tested.
I find more good reason to believe our Government ENCOURAGES
ILLEGAL immigration by prettying up the language calling them
“undocumented workers”Or similar socialistic atheistic terminology.By underfunding—and by Catch and release,and policies like those of Janet Nap— by the Mexican Consulate
interference with American Law-by the Court mandated theft of
property and transfer to illegal aliens-or the Court mandated
penalty given Americans who are tired of the Feds NOT doing their job.YEP-sounds like our Govt. encourages ILLEGAL immigration.
