Border Deportations Policy - Political Parties and Stances

Polling indicates that illegal immigration is regarded to be a much bigger issue among Republican voters than Democratic voters; 75% of Republican voters perceive illegal immigration to be a major issue, compared to just 19% of Democratic voters. Accordingly, the Republican party platform emphasizes the perceived need to curb illegal immigration, while the Democratic platform is focused more on providing pathways to citizenship for undocumented immigrants and streamlining the process of visa applications.

Further, approximately 79% of Republicans support the deportation of undocumented immigrants while 39% of Democrats support the same.  This shows differences in levels of enactment of border control.
