CIS: new poll shows majority of Americans want immigration laws enforced

….and want illegal immigrants to go home!

This is not a surprise, what was a surprise were those polls that Republican establishment types and the mainstream media were bandying around shortly after the Republican establishment lost the Presidential race in November claiming that the majority of Americans wanted a path to citizenship for illegal aliens. You knew intuitively it wasn’t true.

Here is the Center for Immigration Studies reacting to a neutrally-worded poll:

A new poll using neutral language — and avoiding the false choice of conditional legalization vs. mass deportations — finds that most Americans want illegal immigrants to return to their home counties, rather than be given legal status. The findings also show a very large gap in intensity, with those who want illegal immigrants to head home feeling much stronger about that option than those who would like to see illegal immigrants receive legal status.

A few of the more interesting results:

~Of likely voters, 52 percent responded that they preferred to see illegal immigrants in the United States go back to their home countries, compared to just 33 percent who would like them to be given legal status.

~When asked why there is a large illegal population in the country, voters overwhelming (71 percent) thought it was because we had not made a real effort to enforce our immigration laws. Only 18 percent said it was because we were not letting in enough immigrants legally.

Republican establishment take note:

~Enforcement remains politically very popular. Of likely voters, 53 percent indicated that they would be more likely to support a political party that supports enforcing immigration laws vs. only 32 percent who said they would be more likely to support a party that supports legalization.

For the entire poll results go here.

Tell the Christian RIGHT that they have it wrong!   I hope people abandon those “evangelical” churches jumping on the bandwagon with the Left and the Islamists!

  1. […] New poll! Most Americans want illegal immigrants to go home and will support the political party that stands for enforcing immigration […]

  2. Like I said before. I don’t support a path to citizenship, I support a path to the Rio Grande. Ted Kennedy said 1986 would be the last amnesty and the border would be secured. Now we have another set of liars.
