According to a recent poll, Americans are feeling friendlier toward Mexico these days but still think it should offset the cost to the United States of the illegal immigrants it’s sending our way.
More than half of Americans believe Mexico should reimburse the U.S. for the cost of illegal immigration, despite more positive attitudes towards the country than three years ago.
In a National Survey of 1,000 American adults conducted from August 31 through September 1, 2016, by Rasmussen Reports, this is what they answered:
The survey asked whether Mexico is a U.S. ally or an enemy, or somewhere in between:
Ally: 47 percent
Enemy: 4 percent
In between: 43 percent
Not sure: 6 percent
Asked if they agree that Mexico wants to stop illegal immigration into the U.S.:
Agree: 21 percent
Disagree: 50 percent
Not sure: 29 percent
Asked if Mexico should compensate U.S. taxpayers for the cost of illegal immigration:
Yes: 50 percent
No: 34 percent
Not sure: 15 percent
Rasmussen also asked these questions three years ago, in May, 2013.
On Mexico as a U.S. ally:
Ally: 30 percent
Enemy: 8 percent
In between: 52 percent
Not sure: 10 percent
On whether Mexico wants to stop illegal immigration into the U.S.:
Yes: 12 percent
No: 57 percent
Not sure: 32 percent
On Mexico compensating U.S. taxpayers for the cost of illegal immigration:
Yes: 54 percent
No: 29 percent
Not sure: 17 percent
