56% Say U.S. Government Policies Encourage Illegal Immigration
    U.S. voters want aggressive action to restrict illegal immigration, but they don't think immigrants should bear the brunt of the enforcement efforts on their own. Most say the federal government and those hiring illegal aliens also need to be brought into the discussion.
    The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 56% say the policies of the federal government encourage people to enter the United States illegally. Only 27% disagree, and 17% are not sure.
American Patrol Report -- October 13  
    Beginning in January, American Border Patrol will "barnstorm" America to show just how bad the border situation really is. "After Operation Good Fences, 73% - 56 plus 17 - will not only agree that the federal government has been deceiving them, they will learn that the situation on the border is much worse than they thought," said Glenn Spencer of ABP.
