Rasmussen poll: Americans value border security over immigration reform

A new Rasmussen Reports poll has found that support for border security among likely voters is at a 4-year high, eclipsing support for immigration reform:

[M]ost voters — 63 percent — continue to say that border security is more important than legalizing or providing a pathway to citizenship for illegal immigrants already in the United States, up two points from January and the highest level measured since December 2011. The 30 percent of likely voters who disagree is at it’s lowest level in two years. The number of Americans supporting the use of the military to secure the border is also up to 63 percent from 57 percent in January, the highest number measured since December 2012.

Additionally, 77 percent of likely voters consider illegal immigration a serious problem in America, with 51 percent saying it’s a “Very Serious” problem. The latter is up from 47 percent in January.
