This can't be good news for self-proclaimed "sanctuary cities" like San Francisco and Montgomery County, Maryland, the suburban Washington, D.C. region jurisdiction that actively invites illegal immigrants to live within its borders, then resists enforcing federal laws against harboring such individuals.
Now Rasmussen Reports finds 59 percent of those surveyed in the pollster's latest national survey support cutting off federal funding for such santuary jurisdictions.
"A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 59 percent of Likely U.S. Voters favor a cutoff of federal funds to so-called sanctuary cities. Just 28% are opposed and 13 percent are not sure," Rasmussen said.
"However, only 29 percent of voters think Congress is even somewhat likely to agree to cut off funds to cities that provide sanctuary for illegal immigrants. Twice as many, 55 percent say Congress is unlikely to take such an action," he said.
"Those figures include 9% who say Congress is Very Likely to act and 11 percent who say action is Not At All Likely. Seventeen percent (17%) are not sure."
