Forty-six percent of Americans support President Donald Trump’s proposal to send immigrants to sanctuary cities, while 43% oppose it, according to a new Monmouth University poll.

Here is how the rest of the poll breaks down:

  • 71% say illegal immigration is either very serious or somewhat serious, compared to 28 percent who say it is not too serious or not at all serious.
  • 42% favor building a wall along the southern border, while 56% oppose it.
  • 24% say illegal immigrants take jobs away from Americans, compared to 60% who say they take jobs Americans don’t want.
  • 41% say immigrants seeking political asylum should be allowed into the U.S. while they wait for their claims to be processed, while 51% say they should be made to stay in Mexico.
  • 37% say immigrants who come to the border seeking political asylum are really fleeing violence, while 46% say the immigrants are trying to get around the normal process of apply for entry to the U.S.

The poll, conducted April 11-15, surveyed 801 people. The margin of error is 3.5 percentage points.
