State Department has sped up acceptance of newcomers from the Middle Eastern terrorist havens targeted by Trump's "Muslim ban", and voters are not happy about it
While President Trump’s refugee freeze is tied up in the courts, the State Department has sped up acceptance of newcomers from the Middle Eastern terrorist havens targeted by the freeze. Most voters think that’s making America less safe.
A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 54% of Likely U.S. Voters believe increasing the number of refugees from Syria, Iraq and other suspect Middle Eastern and African countries poses an increased national security risk to the United States. Thirty-three percent (33%) disagree, while 12% are undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
The survey of 1,000 Likely Voters was conducted on February 12-13, 2017 by Rasmussen Reports. The margin of sampling error is +/- 3 percentage points with a 95% level of confidence.
