Newly released polling data shows Americans believe illegal immigration is getting worse.
On top of that, they say President Joe Biden’s has mishandled the problem.
“Most U.S voters think America’s illegal immigration problem is getting worse, and believe President Joe Biden is doing a poor job of handling of the issue,” said Rasmussen Reports, which conducted the survey.
The poll also found only a small fraction, 14 percent, say immigration is getting better.
“The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 55% of Likely U.S. Voters believe the problem of illegal immigration is getting worse,” Rasmussen said. “Only 14% think the illegal immigration problem is getting better, while 27% think the problem is staying about the same.”
Meanwhile, House Republicans have launched an inquiry into Biden’s recent decision to lift a Trump-era rule that let federal agents expel illegal immigrants to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
“The radical open borders policies perpetuated by the Biden Administration are reckless and government mismanagement at its worst,” said Rep. James Comer, R-Ky. “Ending Title 42 authority at the border will make President Biden’s border crisis unimaginably worse. Because of President Biden’s open borders agenda, there were two million apprehensions of illegal immigrants and thousands of pounds of fentanyl seized in 2021. Now Biden Administration officials are telling us to prepare for an even greater surge. This massive influx of illegal border crossers will further overwhelm U.S. Border Patrol officers and facilities, which are already operating well beyond their capacity in many sectors.”
“With the Border Patrol completely overwhelmed, there is no doubt that bad actors will exploit the system to bring more fentanyl and other illicit drugs across the border,” he added.
