President Trump said at a rally in Iowa last week that immigrants “must be able to support themselves financially,” and called for stricter enforcement of laws that prevent them from receiving welfare until they’ve been in the United States at least five years. Most voters are on board with such laws.
A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 62% of Likely U.S. Voters favor barring new immigrants to the United States from receiving welfare benefits for at least five years. Twenty-six percent (26%) oppose such laws, but 12% are undecided.
