US CBS News poll: Americans continue to oppose U.S.-Mexico border wall
Senior Trump adviser Kushner to visit Mexico on Wednesday
Senior adviser to U.S. President Donald Trump, Jared Kushner, will visit Mexico on Wednesday and meet President Enrique Pena Nieto, the Mexican foreign ministry said, after a ratcheting up of tensions over trade and plans for a border wall. Late last month, Trump and Pena Nieto postponed plans for the Mexican leader's first visit to the White House, after a testy phone call involving the U.S. leader's push to make Mexico pay for a border wall.Trump has repeatedly insisted Mexico must pay for the wall, a stance Mexican leaders have just as often rejected.
As President Trump plans to visit California Tuesday to see prototypes for a U.S. - Mexico border wall, the idea of building a border wall continues to be unpopular with most Americans, and sharp partisan splits remain. Most Republicans support it, while most Democrats and independents oppose it. These percentages have held steady over time.
We find partisan divides over whether "sanctuary cities" can refuse to assist federal efforts in detaining or deporting illegal immigrants; President Donald Trump visits California amid legal battles between the Justice Department and the state. Half of Americans – and most Democrats - think cities should be allowed to deal with illegal immigrants as they see fit, while another half of Americans – and most Republicans - think such cities should be forced to comply with federal anti-immigration efforts.
Anti-wall crowd shouts at border crossing before Trump visit
Dozens of demonstrators protested President Donald Trump's proposed U.S.-Mexico border wall Tuesday, shouting and holding signs at the busiest U.S. border crossing Tuesday before he inspects prototypes intended to guide future construction.Protesters chanted, "No ban! No wall!" near the San Ysidro border crossing, where tens of thousands of people enter the U.S. daily from Tijuana, Mexico, many on their way to work or school in San Diego. Drivers honked as a show of support.
On the broader principle of whether states or the Federal government should have power on immigration laws, partisans not only divide, but have switched places in recent years. Republicans today say the Federal government should have authority, not the states – a notion they rejected when President Barack Obama was in the White House and Arizona was drawing attention for passing its own measures; today most Democrats say the states should have power, having reversed their thinking from 2010.
This poll was conducted by telephone March 8-11, 2018 among a random sample of 1,223 adults nationwide. Data collection was conducted on behalf of CBS News by SSRS of Glen Mills, PA. Phone numbers were dialed from samples of both standard land-line and cell phones.
