A new poll from Morning Consult/Politico shows that a full 56% of voters would prefer to keep the Trump-era border policy in place.
According to the Daily Caller:
The Biden administration announced Friday that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention would be ending Title 42, a pandemic health measure put in place during the Trump administration to deport illegal migrants crossing the U.S.-Mexico border. Out of the 56% of voters who responded opposing the Biden administration plan, 42% of those voters said that they “strongly disagree” with ending the pandemic era border protection, the poll stated.
Sixty percent of Democrats told the Morning Consult/Politico pollsters they still approve of the Biden administration’s decision to end Title 42, but Independent and Republican voters had a very different reaction.
President Joe Biden’s polling on immigration issues has been a sore spot for him since enacting his executive actions on immigration shortly after taking office, according to a February 2021 Morning Consult/Politico poll.
Almost 50% of voters disagreed with Biden’s decision to allow 125,000 refugees into the country, with only 39% supporting it, the poll showed.
Democratic Arizona Sen. Kyrsten Sinema and Democratic Arizona Sen. Mark Kelly wrote a letter to Biden asking his administration to rethink their plans to end Title 42 until better border processing is in place.
