Poll: Only 35 Percent of Americans Want to Live in Sanctuary Cities
A small minority of likely Americans voters say they want to live in sanctuary cities where criminal illegal immigrants are shielded from federal immigration law.
In a new Rasmussen poll, only 35 percent of Americans said they would like to live in a community that declared itself a “sanctuary city” while 52 percent would not. Some 14 percent were on the fence.
Working-class Americans are least likely to favor living in a sanctuary city, with only 25 percent supporting the idea and 63 percent opposing.
Wealthy Americans, on the other hand, are the most likely to support living in a sanctuary city. Forty-one percent stated support for sanctuary cities and 40 percent opposed the idea.
Key takeaway: The richer you are, the more likely it is that you want to live in a place where your cheap illegal alien servants won’t be deported.
