    49% Concerned Efforts To Identify Illegal Immigrants Will Violate Civil Rights

    Voters are showing less concern that anti-immigration efforts will also end up violating civil rights and most continue to oppose automatic citizenship for children born in the United States to illegal immigrants.

    The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey of Likely Voters shows that just 49% are even somewhat concerned that efforts to identify and deport illegal immigrants will also end up violating the civil rights of some U.S. citizens. That’s down from 55% in April and 57% in May 2010.

    Today, 47% are not as concerned that civil rights may be violated in the effort to seek out illegal immigrants. The current figures include 22% who are Very Concerned and just 12% who are Not At All Concerned. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

    Thirty-two percent (32%) of voters now believe a child should be a U.S. citizen if he or she is born here to a woman who is illegal. That’s generally consistent with results from April of this year and August of last year. In April 2006, 36% supported automatic citizenship for children of illegal immigrants.

    Sixty percent (60%) oppose automatic citizenship for children born in America to illegal immigrants, a finding that has held steady for years.

    The national survey of 1,000 Likely Voters was conducted on August 15-16, 2011 by Rasmussen Reports. The margin of sampling error is +/- 3 percentage points with a 95% level of confidence. Field work for all Rasmussen Reports surveys is conducted by Pulse Opinion Research, LLC . See methodology.

    Most voters (85%) also believe that everyone must be required to prove they are legally allowed to be in the United States before receiving any local, state or federal government services. Just nine percent (9%) disagree. These findings are largely unchanged from past polling.

    Most Democrats (66%) are concerned about civil rights violations in dealing with illegal immigration, while most Republicans (73%) and half of voters not affiliated with either major political party (50%) are not.

    White voters are slightly less concerned about violating civil rights compared to black voters and voters of other ethnicities.

    Democrats, by a 49% to 43% margin, lean towards giving automatic citizenship to children born in the United States to illegal immigrants, while most Republicans and unaffiliateds disagree.

    Political Class voters strongly support granting automatic citizenship to children born here, while Mainstream Voters strongly disagree.

    More voters continue to favor tougher laws against employers who hire illegal immigrants than against landlords who rent to them. But support for strong sanctions against both employers and landlords are at record highs.

    Voters continue to believe U.S. society is fair and decent, while the number who believes immigrants should adopt American culture hovers around the all-time low.

    Sixty-seven percent (67%) of voters think a state should have the right to enforce immigration laws if it believes the federal government is not enforcing them. Most also believe that policies of the federal government encourage illegal immigration. ... vil_rights
