Poll: Majority of Voters Reject $450K Payout to Illegal
Aliens, Want Southern Border Closed Until Crisis Solved 1

A majority of American voters want the border closed to stop the flow of hundreds of thousands of migrants, and they oppose giving taxpayer-funded compensation to those who entered the United States with children illegally, according to a poll through a partnership of the Trafalgar Group and the Convention of States Action.

The poll found that 67 percent of American voters disapprove of President Joe Biden’s plan to pay $450,000 settlements to illegal aliens who were separated — compliant to federal law — from their parents.

The poll, taken between November 1-4 with 1,086 likely 2022 election voters, also found that 55 percent of American voters say President Biden should close the southern border until the current crisis is fixed.

“We were not surprised by the election results in Virginia and New Jersey,” Mark Meckler, president of Convention of States Action, said of the poll. “For more than six months, our polling has consistently found that overwhelming majorities of Americans in all parties are opposed to the insane policies coming out of Washington, DC since Biden came to office.”

“As soon as Americans had a chance to register their views at the ballot box, everyone saw the results,” Meckler said. “For the good of the nation and for the good [of] their own party, the left needs to reverse course immediately and get back to common sense.”

“Halting ridiculous payments to criminals who violated our laws and came here illegally would be a good start, and stopping more of those people from illegally crossing would be another one,” Meckler said.

The poll found 31.6 percent of respondents think the border should stay open, and 13.7 percent were not sure.

Other findings show responses fell along party lines, with independents leaning to the right:

  • 83.4 percent of Republican voters believe President Biden should close the southern border until a solution is reached to deal with the crises of migrant caravans, human trafficking, and drug smuggling. 10.6 percent say remain open, and 6 percent say unsure.
  • 29.5 percent of Democrat voters believe President Biden should close the southern border until a solution is reached to deal with the crises of migrant caravans, human trafficking, and drug smuggling. 51.5 percent say remain open, and 19 percent say unsure.
  • 67.5 percent of independent voters do not approve of the Biden Administration considering to pay families of illegal immigrants separated at the southern border $450,000 each for “psychological trauma.” 9.3 percent approve.
  • 88.1 percent of Republican voters do not approve of the Biden Administration considering to pay families of illegal immigrants separated at the southern border $450,000 each for “psychological trauma.” 6.5 percent approve.
  • 45.8 percent of Democrat voters do not approve of the Biden Administration considering to pay families of illegal immigrants separated at the southern border $450,000 each for “psychological trauma.” 36.4 percent approve.
