Recent Poll Suggests the Congressional Battles to be Fought this Summer.
According to United Press International, (UPI), last week in a recent Zogby poll, when 5,932 U.S. residents were asked “whether they agree that immigration law reform, including a guest worker program, would help protect the United States from terror attacks”, 50% indicated that they do agree, with 24.5% “strongly” disagreeing, and 25.5% “somewhat” disagreeing.
Of those who agreed, 10% percent said they “strongly” agreed that such measures would make the country safer and 30.3 percent were in the “somewhat agree” category.
Pollsters also asked whether the erection of a wall along the Mexico-U.S. border would increase safety against terror attack in the United States.
Additionally, when the participants were asked whether the erection of a wall between the U.S. and Mexican border would increase safety against terror attacks, the results were against virtually split down the middle.
The results of this poll highlight the divisivness of the American public on the issue of immigration reform, and and suggest the intensisty of the Congressional battles to be waged in early summer when this issue is scheduled to be debated in Washington.
