Democratic pollster Mark Penn, a former chief strategist for Hillary Clinton's 2008 presidential campaign, said on Thursday that the vast majority of Americans support turning illegal aliens over to law enforcement.

They also oppose “sanctuary city” policies that limit local cooperation with the national government’s effort to enforce immigration law.

Some 84 percent of Americans support turning undocumented immigrants over to authorities.

A 2014 study in the online Electoral Studies Journal shows that in the 2008 and 2010 elections, illegal immigrant votes were very high.
