DATA: Majority Support Military-Led Deportation of Illegals.

A majority of Americans support the use of United States military troops to arrest and deport illegal immigrants in the country. The survey conducted by YouGov found that 56 percent of Americans believe using soldiers to enforce U.S. immigration laws is necessary. Just 31 percent of Americans opposed.

Democrats, liberals, and voters who indicated they had voted for Joe Biden in the 2020 presidential election were the only demographic outright opposed to using U.S. troops to enforce immigration laws. Nearly 60 percent of Biden voters oppose the military enforcing deportation, while 32 percent support it.

Among Independent voters, 52 percent say the military should be used to arrest and deport illegal immigrants, while just 29 percent oppose it. A plurality of voters between the ages of 18 and 29 support the use of the military for immigration enforcement, with 49 percent in support and 39 percent opposed.

White voters overwhelmingly said they supported military action, with 60 percent in support and just 29 percent opposed. Black voters indicated a plurality of support, breaking 48 to 29 in support versus opposition. The data also found that the border invasion is continuing to push some Hispanic voters away from Democrats. YouGov found that 45 percent of Hispanics support the use of the U.S. military to secure the border, while 43 percent oppose it.

The National Pulse has previously reported that two-thirds of Americans believe the term “invasion” is accurate to describe the border crisis that has unfolded under the Biden government. Additionally, polling has shown that a majority of Americans now support the construction of a border wall.
