A Rasmussen poll reports that African-Americans, populist-conservatives, and middle-class Americans are some of the most likely voters to oppose an Obama-created temporary amnesty program for illegal aliens.
Attorney General Jeff Sessions confirmed this week on behalf of President Trump’s administration that the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program that gave work permits and temporary amnesty to nearly 800,000 illegal aliens would ultimately end.
African-Americans are the most likely racial group in the United States to oppose DACA, with 42 percent wanting to see DACA end. A slim plurality of 47 percent supported the program, according to a Rasmussen Reports poll.
African-Americans’ disdain for DACA was more than both white Americans, who opposed the program by 37 percent, and other minority groups – like non-white Hispanic-Americans – who were the least likely to oppose the program at 33 percent.
Conservatives who strongly approve of Trump and his populist-nationalist agenda were the most likely of all sub-groups to oppose DACA. Fifty-six percent of that group agreed with Sessions’ announcement. Another 48 percent of American voters who somewhat approve of Trump said they too oppose DACA.
