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.
