A national Breitbart News/Judicial Watch poll has found that a majority (51%) of Americans oppose sanctuary cities, where local laws “prohibit law enforcement officers from helping to enforce federal immigration laws.”
Of the 51% of Americans opposed to sanctuary cities, 31% strongly opposed. Thirty-four percent of those surveyed favored sanctuary policies for illegal immigrants while another 14% said they did not have an opinion on the matter.
The poll found that “majorities of Independents and Republicans, and a plurality of Democrats oppose” sanctuary cities. In addition, 58% of Americans with “children in the home” oppose sanctuary cities while a plurality of Hispanics (46%) and a majority of blacks (56%) do as well. In addition, 60% of Americans between the ages of 45-54 oppose sanctuary cities.
