Democrats and Republicans agree on a surprising number of issues related to criminal aliens in the United States according to a recent Zogby International / Associated Television News online poll conducted October 23-25, 2007 of 4,702 likely voters. The poll’s margin of error is +/-1.5 percentage points. Poll results show that America is of one mind when it comes to criminal aliens: If you break the law in your native country or in the U.S. you should not be a U.S. citizen, and those criminal aliens who commit a felony should be locked up here in the U.S.

Democrats and Republicans share similar support for who they felt should be ineligible for U.S. citizenship: aliens convicted of a felony. 48% of Democrats were more likely to deny citizenship to an alien convicted of a felony while 54% of Republicans who felt citizenship should be denied to criminal aliens whether the crime was a felony or a misdemeanor. Overall, 37% percent of voters felt any alien convicted of a felony or a misdemeanor should be ineligible for citizenship. Thirty-four percent of voters felt only those aliens convicted of a felony should be ineligible…..

The poll also asked voters which scenarios they would support for locking up criminal aliens. An overwhelming majority of voters, including Democrats and Republicans supported a wide variety of scenarios including: commission of a felony, smuggling human cargo or human trafficking, dealing drugs, engaging in gang activities or criminals acts. Only 49% of Democrats agreed that re-entering the U.S. after being deported should warrant being locked up while 85% of Republicans and 67% of Independents were much more supportive of locking up aliens who try to re-enter the country.

Q207. Which of the following scenarios would you support for locking up criminal aliens? A foreign criminal who…? Total Dem. Rep.
