Half of American voters blame President Trump or the Republican Party for the immigration woes in America, according to a Morning Consult/Politico poll released on Wednesday.

When asked who was the most responsible for the state of immigration policy in the U.S., 51 percent of all voters said it was either the Republicans or Mr. Trump, with the larger portion — 36 percent — blaming the president.

Democrats overwhelmingly faulted Mr. Trump for his party’s lawmakers, but Republican voters were divided over assigning blame. Forty percent blamed Mr. Trump or the Republicans in Congress, though slightly more — 42 percent — did blame Democrats.

Mr. Trump, Republicans and Democrats have all been pointing fingers at each other over the past few weeks as rhetoric and outrage over immigration policies ramped up. Each side accused the other of trying to use the broken system as a platform to campaign on for the midterm elections.
