A new survey from Secure America Now shows that a majority of American voters, including those of Hispanic origin, approve of President Trump’s efforts to control illegal immigration and stop funding to sanctuary cities.

Approximately 56 percent of Hispanic voters surveyed also said they approved of the deportation of criminal illegal immigrants, while 31 percent were against deportation. A majority of Hispanic voters also said they approve of Trump’s executive order to put a stop to the previous administration’s “catch and release” policy at the border. Only 21 percent disapprove.

Most Americans — nearly 70 percent — think that the president’s order to temporarily stop immigrants coming into the U.S. from countries that sponsor terrorism. (Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, and Yemen) is the right thing to do in order to preserve our national security.

“When voters were told that this ban is trying to stop terrorists who happen to be Islamic radicals without penalizing all Muslims, and that the FBI and Homeland Security directors cannot certify that refugees from these seven countries are not a threat, they agreed that we need to pause and take a 90-day break for allowing refugees from these countries to enter the U.S. until a system is in place that assures that they are not a threat to America,” according to John McLauglin of McLaughlin & Associates, the organization which conducted the survey with a sampling of 1,000 likely voters. “Agreement for the pause rises to 61% while only 28% disagree.”

When it came to sanctuary cities, 46 percent of Hispanic voters agreed that federal funding for sanctuary cities should be halted. The survey showed that 43 percent of Hispanics said they thought funding to these cities should continue, however. As for American voters, nearly 60 percent surveyed were against the funding of such cities, and nearly 30 percent were for it.

Those surveyed were told that the U.S. now contributes three billion dollars per year to the United Nations, which accounts for more than a quarter of the U.N.’s general and peacekeeping budgets combined. While 8 percent said that we should provide more funding to the UN, 33 percent said to maintain the amount, and 44 percent said to decrease it.
