Majority of Americans Are For Tougher Immigration Reform and Support Arizona New Anti-Illegal Immigration Law
It must come as a shock to liberals and the NY Times/CBS that most Americans support an overhaul of US immigration laws and that a majority of Americans also support Arizona’s new tough anti-illegal immigration law.
How did the New York Times come to the above conclusions, why in their own polls of course. Much to their surprise, NY Times learns what most in the United States have know for a long time, majority of legal Americans are fed up with illegals in US. 60% of respondents stated that the AZ law is about right or could go farther.

The public broadly agrees, across party lines, that the United States could be doing more along its border to keep illegal immigrants out. The view was shared by 78 percent of the respondents.
That unity, however, fractures on the question of what to do with illegal immigrants who are already here and the role of states in enforcing immigration law, normally a federal responsibility.
A majority of the people polled, 57 percent, said the federal government should determine the laws addressing illegal immigration. But 51 percent said the Arizona law was “about right” in its approach to the problem. Thirty-six percent said it went too far and 9 percent said it did not go far enough.
So let’s understand this, 78% of those polled agree that the United States should do more in protecting its borders and keeping illegals out. However, along party lines what to do with illegals once they have broken federal law is a different matter. Why? Do we reward a criminal is they have successfully robbed a bank, pulled off a drug deal or harmed another?
Newsbusters has more on the liberal medias attempt to skew a poll on immigration with loaded questions. It still failed. Democrats best understand just how volital an issue this is for people in America, those here legally that is.
Via Michelle Malkin, the May Day protests you won’t see in the MSM. Interesting, the MSM is so quick to point out the hate, racism and violence of the Tea Party movement, yet none exists. As posted earlier, MSM has no issue when swastikas are on posters with Republican politicians, it’s only when regime is used to depict the current Administration does the MSM get upset. To the MSM only hate exists at a Tea Party protest. Can that be said for the pro-illegal May Day marches? Hardly.
65% Very Serious Problem, 24% Somewhat Serious Problem, 10% Not a Problem
74% Weaken Economy, 17% Strengthen Economy
53% of Americans polled think that either illegals who are currently in the US should be required to leave their jobs and the US or can stay in their current jobs but only as a guest worker. The point being that a majority of Americans do not believe nor want illegals that are currently here to be provided US citizenship.
“Which comes closest to your view about illegal immigrants who are currently working in the U.S.?”
43% Allowed to stay in their jobs and to eventually apply for U.S. citizenship
32% Required to leave their jobs and leave the U.S.
21% Allowed to stay in their jobs only as guest workers
