The Polling Company … 63% of Hispanics & 57% of Blacks Say the Government is not Doing Enough to Enforce U.S. Immigration Laws
HERE’S A POLL THE MSM, DEMOCRATS AND PRO-AMNESTY REPUBLICANS WILL NEVER SHOW YOU …
CNS News reports the following TPC/WC poll that shows that an overwhelming majority, including Hispanics and Blacks, say that the government is not doing enough to enforce current US immigration policy. But the MSM, Democrats and pro-amnesty Republicans would have you believe that “amnesty” is the only way to deal with illegals already in the country. The poll also went on to say that 71% of Blacks and 63% of Hispanics believe the government “has a responsibility” to protect job-hungry Americans “from competition with illegal immigrants.” It would appear that legal Hispanics and blacks in America both agree that American jobs should be given to legal Americans. Hmm, think Hispanics and blacks realize that their already poor unemployment numbers and salaries are drastically affected by illegals?
Fully 63% of Hispanics and 57% of Blacks say the government is not doing enough to enforce U.S. immigration laws, according to the survey by The Polling Company, Inc. Likewise, 78% of Whites and 74% of all respondents want tighter border security.
What’s more, 71% of Blacks and 63% of Hispanics believe the government “has a responsibility” to protect job-hungry Americans “from competition with illegal immigrants.” About three-quarters of Whites (77%) and all respondents (74%) agree that the government has a duty to protect Americans from job competition by illegal aliens.
More than three times as many Hispanics and Blacks agree as disagree that “Americans who need work ought to have the opportunity to do the jobs that are currently done by illegal aliens”:
- Hispanics: 73% Agree, 21% Disagree
- Blacks: 70% Agree, 22% Disagree
- Whites: 83% Agree, 12% Disagree
- Total: 81% Agree, 14% Disagree
The youth labor force participation rate was highest for whites, at 63.2 percent in
July 2014. By contrast, the rate was 52.9 percent for blacks, 45.8 percent for Asians,
and 56.2 percent for Hispanics. For all four groups, labor force participation rates
were little different from last July.
The employment-population ratios for young men (53.6 percent) and whites (55.4 percent)
were higher in July 2014 than a year earlier. The ratios for young women (50.1 percent),
blacks (39.8 percent), Asians (40.8 percent), and Hispanics (47.0 percent) showed little
change from last July.
Among the major worker groups, the unemployment rate for adult women increased to 5.7 percent and the rate for blacks edged up to 11.4 percent in July, following declines for both groups in the prior
month. The rates for adult men (5.7 percent), teenagers (20.2 percent), whites (5.3 percent), and Hispanics (7.8 percent) showed little or no change in July. The jobless rate for Asians was 4.5 percent(not seasonally adjusted), little changed from a year earlier.
Economist/YouGov Poll: 77% of Americans Say Illegal Southern Border Kids Need to be Sent Back Home … 64% of Hispanics Want Children Deported
RUT-ROH, looks like Barack Obama, Democrats and the MSM have misread the tea leaves badly…
A funny thing has happened on the way to Barack Obama and Democrats trying use self-created humanitarian crisis of illegals pouring across our Southern border in mass and passing it off as an only unaccompanied minor issue … an unanticipated American backlash, including Hispanic-Americans that says, SEND THEM HOME!!! According to a recent Economist/YouGov poll, 77% of Americans say that the children who have massed on our Southern border in an attempt to get into the USA illegally need to be sent back home to where they came from. Obama and Democrats with the aid of the MSM tried to use “the opportunity” to their advantage to pass amnesty. However, according to the poll 64% of Hispanics want the children to be deported as well. Looks like some one [Democrats] has misread the signs badly.
Breitbart asks, where has the wall to wall media coverage gone? Even the MSM understands that it is hard to exploit “an opportunity” when the American people are so strongly against their bias position.
Rather than convince the American people that passing a mass amnesty is what’s needed, the burst of border coverage earlier this month convinced 77% of the American people that the kids need to be sent back home. A full 42% want the kids sent back immediately regardless of what’s happening in their home countries. Add to that another 35% who want them sent back unless their home country is deemed unsafe.
Only 11% want what Obama, Democrats, and the media want — which is amnesty for everyone.
The numbers are not all that different among Hispanics. Only 22% want to give the children amnesty. A full 64% want the children deported. Of that 64%, 28% want them deported immediately; 36% want them deported unless their home country is deemed unsafe.
That puts Hispanics almost perfectly in line with the rest of country.
Oh the irony, hasn’t the MSM reported that these kids were coming illegally to America to get away from the gangs, violence and murders?
Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel wants to welcome immigrant children who crossing the U.S. border illegally to the Killing Field of Chicago. What a joke. Chicago is one of the most dangerous and violent cities in the country and Rahm wants to bring vulnerable illegal children into that environment. Over this past weekend,23 individuals were sot, 22 were wounded and one killed alone. Wasn’t the point of why these children showed up and crossed the US border illegally to get away from the gang violence and murderous conditions of their countries? Chicago cannot take care of their current problems and they want to add to it. UNREAL.
Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel wants to open the city up to more immigrant children crossing the border illegally, with plans to open up shelters in the city to 1,000 minors by the end of the year.
Mr. Emanuel’s office also plans to launch a “broad-based pro bono campaign,” using the city’s legal resources to council young immigrants
The influx of unaccompanied child migrants is a growing humanitarian crisis that we can no longer ignore,” Mr. Emanuel said in a statement, the Chicago Tribune reported Saturday.
“While we have our own challenges at home, we cannot turn our backs on children that are fleeing dangerous conditions,” he said. “We will do or part to ensure that these children are given access to services and treated fairly and humanely,” the Tribune reported.
But citizens in Chicago, one of America’s most violent cities, have claimed that the Obama administration is placing the plight of illegal immigrants above the needs of Chicago’s citizens.

Nancy Peosi (D-CA) Says After Tour of Humanitarian Crisis on US-Mexico Southern Border …”We are all Americans” … “Not a Crisis But an Opportunity”
UM, who was it that caused this humanitarian crisis on the US-Mexican border by not enforcing US immigration policy?
House Minority leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) held a press conference after her tour of the humanitarian crisis of thousands unaccompanied minors flooding across the U.S.-Mexico border and called it a “humanitarian opportunity”. HUH? Of course that was after she commented that “We are all Americans”. Which sadly is the real reason why San Fran Nan cares at all about this situation on the border … turning a crisis into an opportunity and making thousands of “unaccompanied children” US citizens and government dependent Democrat voters.
We have to ask ourselves, why did this happen under the Obama administration at this time? What else would folks think from South American countries when you do not enforce United States immigration policy?
Let’s make this an opportunity to crate future government dependent Democrat voters
Pelosi explained, “We are all Americans — north and south in this hemisphere,” and urged America to see this as not a crisis but an opportunity “to be helpful.” She also said she wished she could simply “take home” the thousands of children temporarily housed in the overburden facilities.
According to the U.S. Customs and Border Protection agency, in the past fiscal year more than 47,000 unaccompanied children have crossed the border into the United States through Mexico with the majority coming from Guatemala, Honduras, and El Salvador.

Put your money where your mouth is Nancy. Powerline points out that we could put many of these young people that you claim to care so much out in and on the many homes and property you own. Take them home with you, if you really mean it.
Pelosi said repeatedly that she wants to take all the kids she has seen in Texas home. Actually, she could: not all, but quite a few of them. The Obama administration certainly wouldn’t stop her from breaking the law. And Pelosi’s various mansions could house quite a few Central Americans. Her husband Paul, the brains of the family, is a very rich man, which frees Nancy to fool around with politics. This is the Pelosi mansion in San Francisco.
Nancy could house 20 or 30 Central Americans there. But that’s nothing. The Pelosi vineyard in Napa Valley could be home to several hundred. Look at the low population density!
70% of Americans Support Voter ID Laws, Including 51% of Blacks … Why Are Democrats Lawmakers & Obama Against the Will of the American People and Preventing Voter Fraud?
So I guess Democrat law makers and co-called Black leaders would tell you that 70% of Americans are racist.
According to a recent Fox News Poll, 70% of Americans polled agree that there should be voter ID laws passed that required an valid state or federal photo identification in order to be allowed to vote. The survey found that a majority of every demographic supported such a law, including 91% of Republicans, 66% of Independents and even 55% of Democrats. However, many Democratic lawmakers, Black activists and organizations are opposed to strict voter identification laws, claiming they are largely unnecessary and discourage minority voting. They even claim those that would want such a law are hateful, racist and only looking to suppress the minority vote. Of course one needs a valid state or federal ID to cash a check, board an airplane, buy alcohol, obtain a driver’s license at the DMV, any banking transaction including opening an account, obtain SSI disability, buy a gun, donating blood, buy cigarettes, get a US passport, attain unemployment benefits, obtaining a carry gun permit, adopt a child and even buy Sudafed from your local pharmacy. But some how requiring one to do something as important as vote is a burden to minorities. Here is the money line to the poll, 51% of African Americans support voter ID laws, while 46% oppose the laws. Does this mean that the 51% of blacks are racist?
Seven in 10 registered voters are in favor of identification laws in order to root out fraud at the ballot box, according to a Fox News poll released this week.
The survey found majority support in every major demographic, including black voters and Democrats.
The 70 percent who support voter ID laws remains largely unchanged in the past few years. Another 27 percent believe the laws are unnecessary.
The issue has resurfaced recently as Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) said Republicans should not go too crazy over the law because they are offending people, African-Americans in particular.
He later clarified he believes the laws should not be a defining issue for Republicans, and they should be left up to the states to decide. A total of 31 states have active voter identification laws, while a handful of others have recently been struck down in state courts.
The survey found majorities of every demographic support the law. Ninety-one percent of Republicans offer support, and 66 percent of independents feel the same.
Doesn’t make one wonder why when pretty much everything in this country requires a photo ID, including to buy, own and carry a gun (a right protected in the US Constitution) that making sure that there are fair elections with no fraud would be opposed by Democrats? So are they pro-voter fraud? But then again, this is coming from the party that is perfectly fine with letting illegals into the United States and then letting them out of jail after committing crimes. If individuals think that minorities cannot some how get a photo ID, maybe something needs to be looked into that as a problem, rather than calling voter ID laws racist.
As stated at TPPN, “All in all, the case against voter ID laws is not only flimsy, it’s downright laughable in its ridiculousness.”
Obama Administration Sanctions Release of Illegal Immigrant Murderers, Drunk Drivers & Sex Crime Felons
WELCOME TO OBAMA’S HOPE AND CHANGE: THIS IS CRIMINAL … OBAMA ADMINISTRATION SANCTIONS RELEASE OF ILLEGALS CONVICTED OF HOMICIDE AND MANSLAUGHTER BACK INTO THE UNITED STATES.
As reported at The Washington Times, in 2013 the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement released 36,000 immigrants back into the US population that consisted of 116 with convictions for homicide, 43 for negligent manslaughter, 14 for voluntary manslaughter. This is unreal. Hey Jeb Bush, here are more of those folks that came to America illegally out of an ‘act of love’. These don’t look like misdemeanors Jeb. A note to Republicans, if you think you are going to pass “amnesty” or any immigration bill with Obama in office and a Democrat controlled Senate, you will lose in November and bring about finally the advent of a true Third Party. As Rep. Lamar Smith (TX-R) stated, “This would be considered the worst prison break in American history, except it was sanctioned by the president and perpetrated by our own immigration officials.”
Immigration officials knowingly released dozens of murderers and thousands of drunken drivers back into the U.S. in 2013, according to Obama administration statistics that could undercut the president’s argument that he is trying to focus on the most serious criminals in his immigration enforcement.
Among the 36,000 immigrants whom U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement released from custody last year there were 116 with convictions for homicide, 43 for negligent manslaughter, 14 for voluntary manslaughter and one with a conviction classified by ICE as “homicide-willful kill-public official-gun.”
The immigrants were in deportation proceedings, meaning ICE was trying to remove them from the country and could have held them in detention but released them anyway, according to the Center for Immigration Studies, which published the numbers Monday. The Washington Times also obtained the data.
“This would be considered the worst prison break in American history, except it was sanctioned by the president and perpetrated by our own immigration officials,” said Rep. Lamar Smith, Texas Republican. “The administration’s actions are outrageous. They willfully and knowingly put the interests of criminal immigrants before the safety and security of the American people.”
- 193 homicide convictions (including one willful killing of a public official with gun)
- 426 sexual assault convictions
- 303 kidnapping convictions
- 1,075 aggravated assault convictions
- 1,160 stolen vehicle convictions
- 9,187 dangerous drug convictions
- 16,070 drunk or drugged driving convictions
- 303 flight escape convictions
Jeb Bush Says He Will Make a Decision of Presidential Run by End of Year and Illegal Immigrants Who Come to US in an “Act of Love” Deserve to Get Amnesty
To borrow Nancy Reagan’s anti-drug slogan of the 1980′s and apply it to Jeb Bush’s thoughts on running for president … “JUST SAY NO”!!!
Former Florida Governor Jeb Bush says he will make a decision on a 2016 presidential run by the end of the year. Oh boy, I can’t wait. Let me just say that if the GOP wants to lose another election with a candidate along the lines of John McCain and Mitt Romney, then by all means have the elitist, establishment Republican party get behind Jeb. Let alone, we do not need another Bush as president. Just like we do not need another Clinton. It would appear that Instapundit and I agree! I think out of the 300 million people in the United States we can elect a president whose last name does not begin with Bush or Clinton.
Why do we not need a RINO like Jeb Bush as a GOP candidate? We need to look no further than his statement on Sunday that illegal immigrants who come to the United States as an “act out of love” for their families deserve to be treated differently than others who illegally cross U.S. borders or overstay visas. This is obviously code for, they deserve amnesty. I wonder if Jeb feels the same if an individual robs a bank, store or someone’s home out of love for their family or sells drugs is also the same?
A note to Jeb Bush … ILLEGAL IS ILLEGAL!!! This is exactly the reason why so many have lost faith in establishment, limousine Republicans.
Former Florida governor Jeb Bush said Sunday that many who illegally come to the United States do so out of an “act of love” for their families and should be treated differently than people who illegally cross U.S. borders or overstay visas.
Asked about immigration, Bush started by saying that a bipartisan bill passed by the Senate last year made “a good effort” at proposing ways to ensure that people overstaying visas leave the country.
“A great country ought to know where those folks are and politely ask them to leave,” he said, adding later that properly targeting people who overstay visas “would restore people’s confidence” in the nation’s immigration system.
“There are means by which we can control our border better than we have. And there should be penalties for breaking the law,” he added. “But the way I look at this — and I’m going to say this, and it’ll be on tape and so be it. The way I look at this is someone who comes to our country because they couldn’t come legally, they come to our country because their families — the dad who loved their children — was worried that their children didn’t have food on the table. And they wanted to make sure their family was intact, and they crossed the border because they had no other means to work to be able to provide for their family. Yes, they broke the law, but it’s not a felony. It’s an act of love. It’s an act of commitment to your family. I honestly think that that is a different kind of crime that there should be a price paid, but it shouldn’t rile people up that people are actually coming to this country to provide for their families.”
So Jeb, why have any immigration policy if you think that the United States is just one big welfare state meant to help others in other countries, rather than its own citizens? Jeb Bush does realize that an immigration policy is meant to protect the survival of a country by allowing individuals with talent and skills to strengthen a country, not to let anyone one in who is going to be nothing more than a burden on society.
Barack Obama to Hispanics: We Won’t Deport your ‘ILLEGAL’ Relatives Because You Enroll in ObamaCare … Rep. Joe Wilson (SC-R) Was Right, #You Lie
THE LIAR IN CHIEF … when will it be considered a crime, not to enforce the law?
Or in other words, IF YOU LIKE YOUR ILLEGAL RELATIVES IN THE UNITED STATES, YOU CAN KEEP YOUR ILLEGAL RELATIVES IN AMERICA, PERIOD!
On Tuesday President Obama pandered to Hispanics in yet another attempt to shill Obamacare and dispel their fears that if they signed up for his signature piece of legislation, that their illegal relatives in the US would be deported. HEY, THERE IS AN IDEA. Obama said, “You know, you will qualify, you know, regardless of what your family’s status is. So, you know, people should not hold back just because they’re in a mixed-family status.” Um, what the hell is “mixed-family status”? YOU MEAN ILLEGALS!!! One again we are witness to a lawless president only supporting and enforcing the laws he likes. So is Obama saying that illegals can be signed up for Obamacare with no ramifications?
YOU LIE!!! Rep. Joe Wilson Calls Obama A Liar During Address … he was correct!
Remember when Obama said at the 2009 STOTU, “the reforms I am proposing would not apply to those that are here illegally.”
President Obama on Tuesday sought to assure legal immigrants that they can sign up for ObamaCare without worrying that “the immigration people” will come for family members who are in the country illegally.
In an interview with Univision Deportes, a Spanish-language sports radio show, Obama said immigration officials won’t have access to the personal information that consumers provide when signing up for healthcare on the new exchanges.
“Well, the main thing for people to know is that any information you get, you know, asked with respect to buying insurance, does not have anything to do with … the rules governing immigration,” Obama said. “And you know, you can qualify if you’re a legal resident, if you are … legally present in the United States.
“You know, if you have a family where some people are citizens or legally here, and others are not documented, the immigration people will never get that information.”
My first question is, WHY NOT? Is our government not supposed to protect the US Constitution and our borders? Would it not be a natural action of law enforcement to take this information and find out who is in the country illegally? But it is only okay for the IRS to harass the Tea Party and not go after illegals. Remember, Obamacare, the IRS and the Treasury Department are incestuously tied.
So lets understand this, Obama tells Hispanics to enroll in the Affordable Care Act, promising that their private information will not be used by “the immigration people” to track down family members who are in the country illegally, but when it comes to law abiding legal Americans, the NSA tracks our every move, word, cell phone conversation, email, social media posting and tweet? Since Obamacare is tied directly to the IRS and the IRS to the Treasury Department, how is it that only Hispanics information is private, but legal Americans is not!!!
Hey what’s next … turning the other way on Muslim terrorists who want to sign up for Obamacare? What about an early release for prisoners so they can sign up for Obamacare? Heck, let’s just let anyone in Mexico to sign up, border, way border!
Democrat Alex Sink, Candidate for Florida 13th Congressional District Says Iimmigration Reform Important … Where Else Will We “Get People to Work to Clean our Hotel Rooms or do our Landscaping?”
SHE SAID WHAT … A MOMENT OF HONESTY FROM A DEMOCRAT AND WHAT THEY REALLY THINK OF ILLEGALS!!!
Florida Democratic congressional candidate Alex Sink said immigration reform was important during a Tuesday debate with Republican David Jolly and Libertarian Lucas Overby. Sink says immigration reform is important because, without it, how else would Florida employers to find people to clean hotel rooms and do landscaping. YIKES! Take a good look Hispanics what Democrats think of you and where your place is in their caste system. Could Sink have possibly been more demeaning? This is what you are voting for Hispanics, people who want you to get them their towels, make their beds and mow their lawn.
” … where are you going to get people to work to clean our hotel rooms or do our landscaping?”
Alex Sink is running in a special election for Florida’s 13th congressional seat, that is confined to Pinellas County and stretches from Dunedin to the southern end the county, excluding parts of St. Petersburg, that was vacated last year with the death of Bill Young.
Hot Air asks a great question, can some Republican make the exact same comment so that the MSM can rail against them and call them hateful bigots? What do you think the reaction would be if a Republican made such a comment?
“Immigration reform is important in our country,” she said. “We have a lot of employers over on the beaches that rely upon workers and especially in this high-growth environment, where are you going to get people to work to clean our hotel rooms or do our landscaping? We don’t need to put those employers in a position of hiring undocumented and illegal workers.

Barack Obama Weekly Address: The Imperial Sith Lord Obama Says, “Where Congress Isn’t Acting, I’ll Act on My Own”
Barack Obama’s Weekly Address, BLAH, BLAH, BLAH, LIE, LIE, LIE …
As if President Barack Obama has not done enough damage to the economy and the country, Obama is now doubling down and going try and finish the job of destroying America. Obama claims that 2014 is going to be a year of action and during his Weekly Address that he will move forward and act alone without Congress on certain issues if he can’t gain the legislative body’s cooperation. His exact words were, “I want to work with Congress on proven ways to create jobs.” Work with Congress, since when? Proven ways, like what … increasing the minimum wage, Obamacare, extending unemployment, amnesty for illegals and raising taxes? All are proven ways to reduce jobs and create a further government dependent class. This rhetoric is coming off his earlier comments this week, that he has a pen. This is not leadership, it’s authoritarianism and Unconstitutional.
This lying clown has been promising jobs for 5+ years and all his policies have provided us is extended long term unemployment, record number of Americans on food stamps and record low job participation rates.
So the Sith Lord says he is going to act alone and act without Congress. Take a good look at what Obama considers his signature piece of legislation. Obamacare was passed with no GOP support and he had to beg and make sweetheart deals like the Corn Husker kickback and the Louisiana Purchase to bribe Democrats into supporting it for passage. Just curious, how is Obamacare working out for America? Do you honestly want this man f’ing up immigration and the rest of the economy?
However, it is not the GOP that Obama needs to worry about in 2014, it is his own Democrat party. With Barack Obama’s job approval ratings barely in the 40′s and with Obamacare a continuing nightmare for Americans, Obama is not a wounded lame duck president, he is a toxic one. What Democrat is going to want to sign on to any unpopular Obama idea and if Obama plays the “executive order” card to bypass Congress, he will further destroy the Democrats in the 2014 midterms.
