and work legally in the United States. He plans to take this action without authorization from Congress. Do you support or oppose
the president acting on his own to allow about 5 million illegal immigrants to remain in the U.S. and grant them work authorization?

Subsets have a larger margin of error than the whole data set. As a rule we do not rely on the validity of very small
subsets of the data, especially sets smaller than 50-75 respondents. At that size subset we can make generalizations,
but in these cases the data is more qualitative than quantitative

2. The House of Representatives recently passed a bill that fully funds the Department of Homeland Security through
the remainder of this year, but prohibits the use of that money to carry out the president's plan to shield millions of illegal

3. Last year, Sen. Angus King opposed the president taking executive action on immigration, saying 'The
Constitution...doesn't say if the president gets frustrated and Congress doesn't act, he gets to do...what he thinks
is important for the country.' However, this month Senator King voted against legislation that would bar the use of
federal funds to implement the president's plan to shield millions of illegal aliens from deportation and grant them
work authorization. Which of the following statements best reflects your views on Sen. King's stance?

4. President Obama has said that if Congress sends him a Department of Homeland Security bill that
prohibits him from using funds to implement his executive action on immigration, he will veto the bill. In
your opinion, would the president be justified in vetoing the Homeland Security funding bill because it limits
his ability to carry out his plan to shield illegal aliens from deportation and grant them work authorization?

justified in vetoing the Homeland
Security funding bill.

5. If the House and Senate cannot come to an agreement on legislation to fund the Department of Homeland Security,
there is a possibility that about 15 percent of the department's operations could be shutdown. The other 85 percent of
DHS personnel are considered essential workers and would remain on the job even if a spending bill is not approved.
In your opinion, who would be most responsible if a partial shutdown of DHS operations were to occur?

6. Supporters of the president's executive action on immigration argue that it would make the country more secure because it will
help us identify the people who are currently living here illegally. Opponents of the president's plan argue that it would make the
country less secure because it would divert resources and manpower away from the department's primary mission of securing
the homeland. In your opinion, what effect would the president's executive action on immigration have on homeland security?
