Majority of Americans think illegal immigration surge is Biden's fault

A majority of Americans surveyed in a new Yahoo News/YouGov poll think the surge in illegal immigration is President Joe Biden's fault.

In the poll, 54% of Americans thought Biden was "a great deal" or "somewhat" to blame for the record-breaking illegal immigration numbers.

Only 33% said they didn't think Biden was to blame.

Over the two years Biden has been in office, 5.5 million illegal immigrants have been encountered at the border. This year, another 2.6 million are expected.

Tens of thousands of illegal immigrants are being released into the U.S. interior every month and given work permits because of a little-known parole program.

DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas has not done much to help the illegal immigration problem, either.
