Voters Less Concerned With Immigration

Rumbo, Posted: Aug 31, 2008

HOUSTONRegistered voters will be more concerned with security at the Mexican border than the immigration debate when it comes to the November U.S. presidential election, suggests a Rumbo news report. The report cites a recently released national Rasmussen public opinion poll, where 70 percent of the respondents said that increased security along the U.S.-Mexico border was far more important than legalizing the undocumented. Seventy-five percent of voters interviewed said the current government is not doing enough to secure the border. Latino voters are also less concerned about immigration, according to The State of Latinos 2008: Defining an Agenda for the Future, a study conducted by the University of Denver and sponsored by the Azteca Foundation. This study found that immigration was sixth on their list. Latinos' top three concerns were education, the economy and health care.
