Most Americans say the U.S.-Mexico Border will continued to be unsecured if Congress passes an amnesty policy for illegal aliens.

In a Rasmussen Reports survey, 45 percent of Americans said it was not “likely” that even if Congress were to pass an amnesty package for illegal aliens, allowing the estimated 12 to 30 million individuals to remain in the United States, coupled with a security measure, the southern border would still not be secured. A smaller 41 percent disagreed.

The poll also asked Americans which agency should be the authority on making sure the U.S.-Mexico Border is secure. A surveyed 51 percent said the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) should be tasked, as it currently is, with border enforcement duties.

Discussion of amnesty for illegal aliens has most recently come to forefront as President Trump may break with campaign promises to curb illegal immigration and make a deal to give 800,000 illegal aliens – protected by an Obama-created program known as DACA – lasting legal status.

As Breitbart News reported, the legalization could potentially trigger more arrivals at the U.S.-Mexico Border and surge chain migration to the U.S. that would be upwards of at least 4 to 6 million foreign nationals.
