POLL: Californians Split on How to Handle Illegal Immigrant Children

 
POLL: Californians Split on How to Handle Illegal Immigrant Children
Posted Wednesday, September 3rd 2014 @ 7am  by KFBK News - Tim Lantz

Californians have different views on how unaccompanied children crossing illegally into the U.S. should be treated compared to other illegal immigrants.

Overall, 58 percent of California voters surveyed by the Field Poll believe the U.S. should offer shelter and support for the migrant children entering the U.S. illegally, while the government determines their long-term status.

Thirty-three percent disagree.

A 55 percent to 33 percent majority also favor President Barack Obama using an executive order to deal with these children, if the Congress fails to act.

On the other hand, when it comes to the status of the millions of undocumented workers already living in the country, statewide, only 46 percent want the president to take charge if Congress doesn't, while 36 percent are opposed and 18 percent have no opinion.
