    President Barack Obama's disapproval rating on immigration has hit an all-time high in surveys conducted by Pew Research.According to a Pew survey conducted August 20-24, 61% of Americans disapprove of Obama's immigration policy while 31% approve and 7% have no opinion.
    When Pew tracked how the country felt about Obama on immigration in an Oct 28-Nov 8, 2009 survey, 31% approved, 48% disapproved, and 21% had no opinion.
    As illegal immigrant juveniles continue to flood across the U.S.-Mexico border and Obama considers more executive amnesty, other polls have found a higher disapproval rating. For instance, a Gallup poll recently found that 65% of Americans disapprove of his handling of immigration while 68% opposed Obama's handling of illegal immigration in an Associated Press-GfK poll. A recent Reuters poll found that 70% of Americans believe illegal immigrants "threaten traditional U.S. beliefs and customs" while 63% felt that "immigrants place a burden on the economy."
