PHOENIX -- Politicians have been playing the blame game for months after thousands of juvenile illegal immigrants began pouring over the border into the United States.

According to a Rasmussen poll, nearly half of the American public place the blame squarely on the shoulders of the Obama administration.

The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 46% of Likely U.S. Voters think that the administration, through its statements and policies, has encouraged this wave of illegal immigration.

Slightly more than 30 percent of Americans felt the administration was not at fault and 23 percent were unsure.

A majority want the young immigrants deported immediately.

The poll used the opinions of 1,000 likely voters.
