The majority of American voters are opposed to President Donald Trump's executive actions on immigration, according to the results of a new survey.

The Quinnipiac University poll found that:

  • 51 percent are against Trump's directive to suspend immigration from seven countries with a terror presence for 90 days, compared to 46 percent who are for it.
  • 60 percent oppose Trump's order to stop refugees from entering the U.S. for 120 days, compared to 37 percent who are for it.
  • 70 percent are against indefinitely suspending Syrian refugees from coming to the U.S., compared to 26 percent who are for it.
  • 39 percent said Trump's executive action on immigration will make the country less safe, while 38 percent said it will make the country more safe.
  • 51 percent said Trump's order is an attempt to ban Muslims from the U.S., and 58 percent said mainstream Islam is a peaceful religion.

Trump signed executive orders on immigration a week and a half ago, but the action has since been lifted as it's sorted out in the court system. Several lawsuits say Trump's order was unconstitutional, an argument that several judges agree with

"Significant pushback on immigration tells the president that many voters are not on board with a ban on refugees and that voters are strongly opposed to holding back those most threatened, Syrian refugees," said Tim Malloy, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Poll.
