Poll: Most Voters See Illegal Immigrants as Burden on US Budget

July 5, 2018 Updated: July 5, 2018

Most American voters see illegal immigration as damaging to the U.S. budget, a new poll revealed.

A July 3 poll by Rasmussen found that 52% of likely U.S. voters think illegal immigrants are a “significant strain” on the U.S. budget. The percentage is similar to last year’s finding, which was 49% of likely voters.

Meanwhile, 35% do not think that illegal immigrants are a budget strain. Another 14% were undecided. The survey was conducted with 1000 people from June 27 to 28.

The findings come after an earlier Harvard-Harris June poll revealed a massive 84 percent of Americans favor turning in illegal immigrants. Only 16 percent said that federal agents should not be notified.
