Forty-nine percent (49%) of voters prefer no bill over the Senate bill.
Seventy-two percent (72%) of voters believe it is Very Important for “the government to improve its enforcement of the borders and reduce illegal immigration.”
Adding pressure to Congress is the fact that voters see this objective as achievable --68% of Americans believe it is possible to reduce illegal immigration.
Where’s the Republican Party in New Jersey on this issue? Leadership is not flying below the radar.
