A new poll has found that nearly 70 percent of Americans want a wall or some kind of fence on the southern border to help deal with our massive illegal immigration problem.
It seems like the only people who don’t want this are our liberal leaders in Washington, DC.
What does that tell you?
The Washington Examiner reports:
Two-thirds want border wall and E-Verify to slow illegal immigration
Sizable majorities of 2022 midterm election voters are growing more concerned about illegal immigration across the U.S.-Mexico border and believe the fix should include walls, fences, and other barriers and an E-Verify system that would punish employers who hire illegal immigrants.
In a new Rasmussen Reports survey done with the hard-line immigration reform group NumbersUSA, 67% backed a wall and other barriers, including 49% of Democrats.
Even more, 69%, want to “mandate that all employers use the federal electronic E-Verify system to help ensure that they hire only legal workers for U.S. jobs,” read the analysis.
Overall, 60% said that the border crisis is a top issue, and most faulted President Joe Biden for the growing disaster.
“This polling is remarkable. It shows clearly that most American voters of every type, party, and ideology agree that immigration needs to be brought under much better control,” said NumbersUSA Vice President of Operations Jim Robb.
Under Biden, illegal immigration has hit record levels, and Republicans have hammered Democrats on the issue during the midterm elections. However, voters showed that they are not singularly focused, and the promised red wave of GOP victories has evaporated. Just 15% said the border crisis was their sole reason for voting for a candidate last month.
In other words, the Biden administration is doing the opposite of what most Americans want.

Republicans should keep this in mind for when they take over the House and hopefully the White House in 2024.
