A new Cronkite News-Univision News-Dallas Morning News poll released earlier this week said that 72% of residents living on the U.S. side of the border and 86% of percent of those living on the Mexican side are opposed to building a wall between the two countries.

The poll, which interviewed 1,427 residents in 14 sister cities on both sides of the border, also asked questions about law enforcement. For example, the following graphic asked respondents if they trust law enforcement. On the U.S. side, 82% of respondents said yes, but on the Mexican side, 76% said no.

Another finding showed how Americans on the U.S. side of the border view Mexicans and vice versa. Just 1% of the responses from Americans said that Mexicans were viewed as “criminals,” while 38% of the responses said Mexicans were viewed as “neighbors.” When Mexican respondents were asked a similar question, 45% said Americans were “neighbors,” with 8% saying they were “racists.”
