NSA/TIPP Survey: The Southern Border

NSA/TIPP Survey: Americans See The Southern Border As A National Security Threat, Want Strong Enforcement Of Existing Laws And More Mexican Cooperation

President Biden refuses to acknowledge and exercise his full authority to secure our borders.


Nearly three-fourths (72%) of Americans perceive the southern border situation as a national security threat. Another 72% want strong enforcement of existing laws. Further, an overwhelming majority (83%) want more cooperation from Mexico in alleviating human suffering at the border. Those are the findings of an online nationwide TIPP survey of 1,402 Americans conducted from January 31 to February 2 for the National Sheriffs’ Association (NSA). The credibility interval for the survey is +/- 2.7 percentage points.

The National Sheriffs’ Association came out against legislation recently released by the U.S. Senate. The bill would simplify the process of entry at the expense of border security. National security should be the top priority for every administration. The legislation ignores the political, social, and economic domination of our borders by the cartels, which are more powerful than the terrorists who brought down the World Trade Center. This crisis has caused more than 35-times the number of deaths to American citizens in a one-year period than was inflicted upon the United States on 9/11.
