Harvard-Harris Poll: 69% of Registered Voters Oppose Abolishing ICE

Jonathan Mizrahi, CNSNews, July 2, 2018

A recent Harvard-Harris poll found that 69% of registered voters do not believe that the Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency (ICE) should be abolished, an idea that some congressional Democrats and liberal activists are proposing.

In the June 24-25 online survey of 1,448 registered voters, Harvard-Harris asked, “Do you think that the Immigration and Customs Enforcement officers, known as ICE, should be disbanded or not?”

According to the poll, 69% of the respondents said ICE should not be disbanded; 31% said the immigration enforcement arm should be disbanded.

The poll also asked, “Do you think we need stricter or looser enforcement of our immigration laws?”

To this question, 70% of the people answered that the United States should have “stricter” enforcement of its immigration laws; 30% said “looser” enforcement.
