An overwhelming majority of Californians say the U.S.-Mexico border is "not secure," according to a new poll from the Los Angeles Times and Berkeley.

The survey of registered voters found that 62% of respondents believed that the border was not secure, while just 30% said it is. The issue deeply divided the state's Democrats as well, with 54% of people who identify as "strongly liberal" saying the border is secure and 30% saying it is not.

Among California Republicans, 88% say the border is not secure and just 8% say it is.

Furthermore, over 70% of registered voters agree that illegal immigrants are a "burden" on the U.S., with 42% saying they are a "major burden" and 30% saying they are a "minor burden," according to the poll.
