The Democrat Party took a big risk when they coordinated with their allies in the media to create a fake outrage story about illegal kids being separated from their parents. They wrongly assumed that manufacturing a phony border crisis that’s been in existence since Geroge W. Bush was President, would distract the American voters from the IG report, that exposed the corrupt bias of anti-Trump FBI agents and FBI’s top dog James Comey.
The Daily Caller is reporting that according to a new Rasmussen poll, a majority of Americans blame illegal immigrant parents for the child crisis on the border over the U.S. government.
The media has put a hyper-focus on the separation of families at the border 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.
According to a newly released Rasmussen poll, most voters blame the parents of the separated children at the border for the latest illegal immigration crisis, not the federal government.
When families are arrested and separated after attempting to enter the United States illegally, 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.
To help understand the current political debate over the children issue, a closer look shows that 82% of Republicans and 56% of voters not affiliated with either major political party feel the parents are more to blame for breaking the law. But 60% of Democrats say the government is more to blame for enforcing the law.
The survey of 1,000 Likely Voters was conducted on June 19-20, 2018 by Rasmussen Reports.
