That’s according to the latest Fox News Poll released Friday.
The Wall Street Journal first reported in late October that the Justice Department, Homeland Security, and Health and Human Services are considering the payments in response to lawsuits brought by civil rights groups on behalf of the roughly 5,500 parents and children who say they have psychological trauma from the separations, some of which lasted for an extended period.
As of this writing, no settlements have been made and the details surrounding the amount of the potential payouts are still being determined.
Nearly a third of voters favor the $ 450,000 payout (30 percent).
But more than 6-in-10 oppose it, including 49 percent who are against giving separated families any compensation at all and another 12 percent who say it should be a lesser amount.
