78% of Republicans think Biden is purposefully encouraging illegal immigration.

Even 30% of Democrats agree.

quick excerpts:

“It’s a red herring. It’s not even an issue of immigration, but all the energy is being put there,” said Rep. Lou Correa (D-Calif.), who’s fervently pushed for reform and even threatened to tank Biden’s party-line domestic policy package if it didn’t address immigration

If Democrats deliver nothing on the issue after two years of controlling both the White House and Congress, Correa said, he fears for their fate in November.

“Thirty-eight percent of Latinos voted for [Donald] Trump in this last election. You come home empty-handed, I don’t think it’s going to help the situation,” Correa said.

Domingo Garcia, president of the League of United Latin American Citizens, ultimately wants the pandemic-era deportation policy gone but argues that the administration remains ill-prepared to deal with an expected migration surge. He warned that without a more concrete plan, “it’s going to backfire in November.”

Others, however, criticized the White House for waiting as long as it did to end Title 42.

“The fact that the Biden administration initially said they were going to terminate it but yet have kept it in place for over a year is deeply concerning,” said Marielena Hincapié, executive director of the National Immigration Law Center.

“Ending this Congress without immigration reform will be a big letdown for the immigrant community,” warned Rep. Chuy García (D-Ill.). “We said that if we could win both chambers and have the White House, that would be the alignment. There is great expectation that this is the moment, and if it doesn’t happen, it will be a long wait again.”

Didn't he do an executive order and make an announcement to the world on changes at the Southern Border, leading to (as everybody in the world knew it would) screwing up the border situation worse than ever, starting on Day 1, also.
I don't like your poll. You didn't mention Independents. Speaking for the rest of them (whether they like it or not), we think his border policies suck, also. Why would they possibly consider rationally discussing immigration policy with him, when he acted, directly and stupidly on his own or the part of somebody else we didn't know was running the show?
