A stunned Mercury News reports that nearly half of Californians say they support President Trump’s Muslim travel ban and more deportations of undocumented immigrants.
This according to a survey released by UC Berkeley’s Haas Institute for a Fair and Inclusive Society.
While Leftists in the country’s only sanctuary state value diversity and inclusion on all fronts — from economic and racial justice to immigration reform — not everyone agrees with them.
The Haas Institute’s Blueprint for Belonging project, which commissioned the survey hates President Trump and anyone who supports him. They told the Mercury News they found the results unsettling.
About 24 percent of the survey’s participants said it’s “very important” for the U.S. to increase deportations of undocumented immigrants, while 35 percent said it’s “somewhat important,” according to the poll. That viewpoint even held true in the Bay Area, where 25 percent of those surveyed said increasing deportations is very important and 35 percent said it’s somewhat important.
Even worse for the Leftists elites, about 49 percent of Californians support temporarily banning people from Muslim-majority countries, according to the poll. In the Bay Area, 44 percent of residents support the ban, the least out of any region in California.
Jon Rodney, spokesman for the California Immigrant Policy Center in Oakland, an immigrant advocacy group told the Mercury News, “I think some of these outlier results may be looking more into the attitudes of certain areas where there needs to be more education.”
More education? Interesting.
The results come as a growing number of Southern California cities, including Escondido in San Diego County and Los Alamitos in Orange County, are rebelling against the state’s sanctuary policies.
