Again, this is particularly true of Republicans. While Republicans who oppose this policy dominate most right-of-center space on cable TV and in the media, only 4 percent of actual adults who identify as Republican strongly disapprove of the policy of jailing illegal border crossers. Some 85 percent of Republicans support either Trumps executive order for family detention or something stricter. Only 7 percent oppose all such detentions.
The poll also shows that only 8 percent of American voters think illegal immigration is not a serious problem.
