Dunkin’ Donuts recently removed franchise rights from owners who failed to use the E-verify system. The company said this was done to discourage franchise owners from hiring undocumented workers. Sixty-four percent (64%) of voters believe Dunkin’ Donuts’ actions were justified. A ScottRasmussen.com national survey found that 17% disagreed and 19% are not sure.
Eighty-one percent (81%) of Republicans believe the company’s actions were justified. So do 64% of Independents and 51% of Democrats (see crosstab results).
To ensure that people hired are legal residents of the United States, 80% favor the law requiring use of an E-Verify system during the hiring process. Twenty percent (20%) are opposed. Those figures include 45% who Strongly Favor the law and 6% who are Strongly Opposed.
These results are broadly consistent with a vast collection of data showing that eight-out-of-ten voters believe illegal immigration is bad for the United States (eight-out-of-ten also believe that legal immigration is good). Other data showed that 21% of voters effectively support an open borders policy. They believe the United States has no right to decide who is eligible to enter the country. They believe anyone who wants to live in the United States should be allowed entry.
Thirty percent (30%) of voters say this action makes them more likely to visit a Dunkin’ Donuts while 15% would be less likely to do so. Most (55%) say it won’t have any impact on their decision.
