Apr 26, 2024 | Political News

A 51 percent majority of Americans, including 42 percent of Democrats, are in favor of mass deportations of illegal immigrants. Former President Donald Trump has promised to bring such policies in the US should he be elected to a second term in office.

According to a new Axios Vibes survey by The Harris Poll, Americans have warmed to the idea of mass deportations and more secure border policies, like those that were in place during the Trump administration, now that the influx of illegal immigration has reached crisis levels under President Joe Biden.  

68 percent of Republicans and 46 percent of Independents are also in favor of mass deportations, according to the poll reported on by the outlet.
