[Ed. – The odd thing would be thinking it was a priority. DACA doesn’t frame the problem in a way that makes sense — unless you already have a radical political perspective on illegal migration. Most people don’t. At most, they’d prefer to see attrition reduce the scope of the problem over time, until the cost of making a definitive decision has been lowered sufficiently.]
Fewer than 30 percent of Americans prioritize the award of permanent amnesty to nearly 800,000 illegal aliens shielded from deportation by President Barack Obama’s DACA amnesty.
In a new poll by Morning Consult and Politico, just 29 percent of Americans said allowing illegal aliens on the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program to permanently remain in the United States and receive a pathway to citizenship was a priority.
Support for amnesty for DACA illegal aliens has dropped 10 points among Americans since Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced in September on behalf of President Trump’s administration that the Obama-era program would ultimately be ended in March 2018.
Even among Americans who are Democrats, support for an amnesty for DACA illegal aliens has fallen to less than 50 percent. Only 44 percent of Democratic voters said giving amnesty to DACAs needed to be a priority for Congress.
