More Americans Favor Arizona Anti-Illegal Bill than Oppose … Obama Takes Issue off the Agenda


If you were to listen to the state run main stream media these days one would think that America is against anti-illegal immigration laws and most notably the new anti-illegal law that was recently signed by Gov. Jan Brewer.

Of course that is the case, that is the liberal propaganda media at work once again. However, according to the most recent Gallup poll, more Americans are in favor of the new Arizona law than oppose it.


More than three-quarters of Americans have heard about the state of Arizona’s new immigration law, and of these, 51% say they favor it and 39% oppose it.

Once again Obama and the Democrats find themselves on the wrong side of the illegal immigration law fence. As stated in the Gallup poll summary, “Most Americans have heard about Arizona’s tough new immigration law, and they generally support it”.

Nationally, 62% of Republicans support the law (including 75% of Republicans who have heard about it). Democrats are more likely to oppose (45%) than favor (27%) the law, and a majority of Democrats familiar with the law (56%) oppose it. Independents are somewhat more likely to favor (37%) than oppose (29%) the law, with half of those who have heard about it in favor.

QANDO reminds us that just the other day Reuters had an article regarding the the energized Democrat and Hispanics in the wake of the Arizona law. We had stated that Democrats best be careful just what things they decide to get behind.  So who will the ultimate backlash be against when all is said and done?

I think we already know the answer and so does Barack Obama. There is a reason why Obama took immigration reform off the agenda and said there will be no immigration reform done in 2010 prior to the midterm elections.

The president noted that lawmakers may lack the “appetite” to take on immigration while many of them are up for re-election and while another big legislative issue — climate change — is already on their plate.

“I don’t want us to do something just for the sake of politics that doesn’t solve the problem,” Obama told reporters Wednesday night aboard Air Force One.

Lack the appetite because they are up for reelection and there are other things already on the table? Hey Hispanics, I guess you see where you rate in the grand scope of things. You mean Democrats are playing politics with the illegals issue, say it isn’t so. Be very careful of supporting a party who things that fraudulent climate change is more important. The fact of the matter is, illegal immigration reform is yet another disaster in waiting for the Democrat party.

Recent Rasmussen polls show 60% support for police stopping individuals to verify immigration status. Just an FYI to the uninformed, The AZ law is hardly Nazi-like, especially when current US federal law states that an immigrant is required to have “green card” on them at all times.

Obama looks to kick the illegals can down the road. Illegal immigration Obama reform will be another Obamacare for the 2012 elections.

      On the local news this morning they reported that the local civil rights group will be marching downtown tomorrow in protest of the law passed in AZ saying that it violates civil rights. What is so hard to understand about “Illegal Immigrants”? Illegal immigrants have no civil rights under the United States Constitution. The United States Constitution applies to legal citizens not Illegal immigrants. It is not a violation of anyone’s civil rights to ask them for their “green card” or other legal papers to prove they are a legal citizen.

      Some people just need to buy a clue.

    2. NewGirlBoston on April 30th, 2010 12:15 pm

      Obama should take this issue off his Agenda for now—it opens up a whole HUGE can of controversy for him and his chances of getting re-elected again in 2012.

      It just amazes me also how these protestors do not understand the interpretation of the Civil Rights of AMERICAN CITIZENS! Those BORN OR NATURALIZED HERE ! Not those here illegally who want the same rights as AMERICAN CITIZENS. Shame on the supposed Leaders like, Sharpton, et al., who also claim to devote their lives to these causes but who are RACE BAITERS and cannot even understand the Constitution they claim to defend as it is interpreted into law! This is just a big bunch of bullshit.

    3. yoyo muffintop on April 30th, 2010 12:56 pm

      So you are OK with a “Papers Please” society #1?

      ALL citizens who don’t have these “papers” on them, but are suspected of being an alien, will be rounded up and detained until their citizenship status can be verified — and I expect that on occasion Kafkaesque mistakes will be made.

      You OK with that…when it happens to you?

      And btw – your comment about T”he United States Constitution applies to legal citizens not Illegal immigrants.” is patently false. It is you that needs a clue. Lol.
      I will leave you with a few gems to prove you incorrect (even though it’s silly for me to do since there is not one single person remotely familiar with the Constitution that would say it does not cover illegal immigrants as you state…except you. lol.).

      Supreme Court in Wong Wing v. U S:
      “The fourteenth amendment to the constitution is not confined to the protection of
      citizens. It says: ‘Nor shall any state deprive any person of life, liberty or property
      without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the
      equal protection of the law.’ These provisions are universal in their application to
      all persons within the territorial jurisdiction, without regard to any differences of
      race, of color, or nationality; and the equal protection of the laws is a pledge of
      the protection of equal laws.’ Applying this reasoning to the fifth and sixth
      amendments, it must be concluded that all persons within the territory of the
      United States are entitled to the protection guarantied by those amendments,
      and that even aliens shall not be held to answer for a capital or other infamous
      crime, unless on a presentment or indictment of a grand jury, nor be deprived of
      life, liberty, or property without due process of law.”

      Supreme Court in Supreme Court in Wong Wing v. U S:
      “The illegal aliens who are plaintiffs in these cases challenging the statute may
      claim the benefit of the Equal Protection Clause, which provides that no State
      shall ‘deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.’
      Whatever his status under the immigration laws, an alien is a ‘person’ in any
      ordinary sense of that term… The undocumented status of these children vel non
      does not establish a sufficient rational basis for denying them benefits that the
      State affords other residents.”

      Bottom line – when one examines the Constitutional rights actually enjoyed by ALL Americans, including convicted felons for example, illegal aliens enjoy the same rights while they are within the boundaries of the United States.

      Oh, wait a minute, you are a birther #1…well that would explain why you haven’t a clue. My bad, I actual thought you were sane. Lol.

      That last SC decision was in regards to Plyler V. Doe, not Wong Wing v. U S.

    5. Tamikosmom on April 30th, 2010 1:48 pm

      My husband’s second cousin and wife from Japan applied through regular channels to enter the States three years ago. Papers are in order … sponsors have been secured … jobs waiting but … the time has not been deemed right by the “powers that be” that would afford them the privilege of immigrate to they consider the greatest nation on the face of the earth.

      Immigration has advised them to be patient … their turn will come.

      Why is enforcement not where it is at for those who bypass the system and illegally immigrate to the US? Why should my husband’s relatives conform to protocol … the law?


    6. yoyo muffintop on April 30th, 2010 3:43 pm

      Plyler V. Doe on the second one, not Wong Wing v. U S.

    7. A Texas Grandfather on April 30th, 2010 6:16 pm

      YoYo Muffintop has quoted case law in two instances. However, he or she conviently fails to mention that crossing the U.S. border without proper papers is a crime.
      The new Arizona law simply makes it possible for all levels of law enforcement in the state to ask for papers if they have stopped someone for another reason and they after talking with the person or persons have reason to believe they may be in the country illeagly.
      At the present time, the feds have forbidden local law enforcement from doing this unless every member of the local group has been trained to federal standards and then the feds sometimes refuse to take the illeagles.
      If the federal government shirks its primary duty to properly protect the people, then the people have the right to take steps as Arizona has done.

    8. Michelle on April 30th, 2010 6:35 pm


      Get a clue…The United States Constitution applies to U.S. Citizens not illegals. Illegals do not have the same rights as citizens that’s why they are illegal. Jeez you are so dense.

      They are only asking for papers if they are suspicious of someone being here illegally. They are not going home to home and asking for papers, you dimwit. When you are pulled over by a police officer and he/she asks for your license & registration, is that profiling? Is that in violation of your civil rights? NO it isn’t.

      Leave it to YoYo to always find a way to spin things to suit his or herself.

      Bottom line is: If you are in the State of Arizona without proper proof of citizenship (like your boy Obama) then you are an illegal immigrant and you are breaking the law. It’s not that complicated. The Constitution does not apply to those who are not legal citizens or what would be the point of securing our borders if everyone is treated as citizens when they indeed are not?

      That is the most ridiculous thing I’ve ever heard. Why would illegals be given the same rights as citizens? What’s the purpose of having borders if you are going to allow every person that comes here the same rights as citizens? That is stupid and the Supreme Court got it wrong.

    9. Michelle on April 30th, 2010 6:42 pm


      I think you have a problem with reading comprehension. This is what the 14th Amendment says. Take note of the first line. It says all persons born or naturalized are citizens. Nowhere does it say, illegals in the 14th Amendment. It says citizens with the jurisdiction of the states. Illegals are not citizens. It does not apply. The courts did not interpret the 14th Amendment as written. Leave it to liberals to twist the words of the Constitution for their propaganda.

      U.S. Constitution – Amendment 14

      Amendment 14 – Citizenship Rights

      1. All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside. No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.

      2. Representatives shall be apportioned among the several States according to their respective numbers, counting the whole number of persons in each State, excluding Indians not taxed. But when the right to vote at any election for the choice of electors for President and Vice-President of the United States, Representatives in Congress, the Executive and Judicial officers of a State, or the members of the Legislature thereof, is denied to any of the male inhabitants of such State, being twenty-one years of age, and citizens of the United States, or in any way abridged, except for participation in rebellion, or other crime, the basis of representation therein shall be reduced in the proportion which the number of such male citizens shall bear to the whole number of male citizens twenty-one years of age in such State.

      3. No person shall be a Senator or Representative in Congress, or elector of President and Vice-President, or hold any office, civil or military, under the United States, or under any State, who, having previously taken an oath, as a member of Congress, or as an officer of the United States, or as a member of any State legislature, or as an executive or judicial officer of any State, to support the Constitution of the United States, shall have engaged in insurrection or rebellion against the same, or given aid or comfort to the enemies thereof. But Congress may by a vote of two-thirds of each House, remove such disability.

      4. The validity of the public debt of the United States, authorized by law, including debts incurred for payment of pensions and bounties for services in suppressing insurrection or rebellion, shall not be questioned. But neither the United States nor any State shall assume or pay any debt or obligation incurred in aid of insurrection or rebellion against the United States, or any claim for the loss or emancipation of any slave; but all such debts, obligations and claims shall be held illegal and void.

      5. The Congress shall have power to enforce, by appropriate legislation, the provisions of this article.

      Notes for this amendment:

    10. rightknight on April 30th, 2010 7:39 pm

      Big Government needs plenty of voters to remain in power.
      The ‘Illegal’ voting bloc is being eyed as guaranteed to
      supplement the ‘prisoner’ bloc, the ‘black’ bloc, the
      ‘indoctrinated youth’ bloc, and finally the ‘parasite’ bloc.
      Amnesty is viewed as the way to corral these critical votes.

      The U.S. of America is being invaded ~

      Our Nation is imploding because of the influx of drugs and “illegal” immigrants ~ their Drug Lords, Cartels are the ones pushing them through our borders for their agenda and ~ slowly, ever so cleverly chipping away at our Country… we’re rotting from the inside out ~ our infrastructure is collapsing ~ we’re being sold out ~ our Government is putting a blind eye to the Drug War that is upon us,and has allowed over 21 million illegal immigrants to invade us.


      If this was Al Quiada, crossing into our borders, would our Government then be doing something?

      It’s frightening, (regardless of race) ~ just the fact that human trafficking and drug trafficking is being allowed ~ and 4,000 a day, are getting through our borders in AZ alone ~ is staggering!

      That rancher that was murdered in AZ was hit by assassins from Mexico ~ it was made to look like an “illegal” alien shot the rancher dead. The rancher moved drugs off his property and was murdered for it.

      The Governor of AZ is doing the right thing… she’s standing up for what is necessary to get control of her State ~ and this is a wake up call America ~ War is being declared upon our land, it’s a DRUG war ~ and nothing has been done, or is being done about it, until now… bless the Governor of AZ ~

      In AZ, CA, Al Sharpton and then some are screaming in outrage by her actions… “illegal” folks are outraged by this Governor… She should be congratulated and given a medal of honor for bravery… for doing what is right ~ it’s about time.

      In addition to the Police and Sherriff’s doing their job, protecting it’s legal citizens… our U.S. Military should also be patrolling our borders and guarding the United States of America and it’s LEGAL citizens… from this INVASION.

      This IS war ~

      very clever, Mexico… just eat away at the United States, little by little, day by day… hook the kids on drugs, destroy their minds ~ ruin the U.S. economy… little by little ~

      Time to wake up America!~

      Close the Borders NOW.

      Thou doest the law and all it stands for….if you are ILLEGAL…you have violated our laws and indanagered our people…!!!

    16. on May 1st, 2010 9:15 am

      If this was Al Quiada, crossing into our borders, would our Government then be doing something?

      And, because our borders are so porous, we have NO CLUE who is crossing and roaming about the United States.

      Don’t kid yourselves that they are all just illegal Mexicans looking for work. If you were Al Quiada and wanted to enter the US, what would be one of the easiest ways to enter without being noticed?

      Do remember we have actually found foreigners inside the US, plotting our demise.

    17. kitty on May 1st, 2010 4:13 pm

      Katablog, you’re absolutely speaking truth ~ and are right.

    18. Tamikosmom on May 1st, 2010 6:06 pm


      I agree. Homeland security demands that the borders are protected from terrorists … from the criminal element.

      Then there are the Mexicans who only wish to reside and raise their children in what is perceived as one of the greatest democracies.

      What right do these so-called “immigrants” have to bypass the immigration procedure and enter the States illegally? No right. They do it because they can. They have learned that the politically correct responses from the liberal politicians … included the American president … will insure that they are not held accountable.

      A question. Why are children who are born on American soil to mothers who are in the country illegally considered citizens?

      Speaking to idiots and liberal douche bags like yoyo is like speaking to a donkey.

      No matter what facts and logic you throw in his stupid face all IT does is hee haw hee haw and hee haw and hee haw the same typical liberal illogic and unfactual bullshiz.

      He has no clue about what he is talking about. No where, no Supreme Court decision has ever said that illegal immigrants are protected by the 14th Amendment. Not one single case. Not one.

      Not one case has said those that ILLEGALLY cross the border have protection…NOT ONE.

      See dummy.

    22. The Old Chip on September 2nd, 2010 4:23 pm

      About a Half MILLION Voters!
      1. Should America follow Arizona’s lead when it comes to immigration reform?

      85% voted: Yes
      3. Do you feel being asked for proof of citizenship is a violation of your civil rights?
