According to a new Rasmussen poll, a majority of Americans blame illegal alien parents for the child crisis on the border over the U.S. government.
The media has put a hyper focus on the separation of illegal aliens at the border (while ignoring the fact that Obama did the same, putting children in far worse conditions) over the last several weeks, leading President Donald Trump to sign an executive order ending the separation.
Current U.S. law does not allow families to be detained together if the parents are referred for prosecution for illegal border crossing, a fact that Democrats vehemently denied.
However, the Rasmussen poll shows that Americans don’t blame the Trump administration for the approximately 2,000 children who have been separated from their parents.
When illegal aliens are arrested and separated after attempting to enter the United States, 54% of Likely U.S. Voters say the parents are more to blame for breaking the law.
The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that only 35% believe the federal government is more to blame for enforcing the law. Eleven percent (11%) are not sure. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
Fifty-four percent (54%) agree with President Trump when he says, “The United States will not be a migrant camp. And it will not be a refugee-holding facility – it won’t be.” Thirty percent (30%) disagree, while 16% are undecided.
The sad fact is, Congress could solve the entire problem by enacting a law common around the world. Simply require paperwork for anyone trying to enter the nation. Either you have documentation or identification that shows you are allowed in the United States, or you are turned away at the border. Simple.
It’s decades overdue to deal with the problem of illegal aliens invading the United States, and there’s no reason other than treasonous intent to not deal with illegal aliens with whatever means necessary to prevent them from entering, and deportation from the United States.
