Only 26% Favor Amnesty Plan

The powers that be in Washington better take note. The American people are overwhelmingly opposed to the current amnesty plan as offered, and if you pursue this and try to ram it down our throats, you risk alienating an overwhelming majority of American citizens.

Kill this bill now!
Initial public reaction to the immigration proposal being debated in the Senate is decidedly negative.

A Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey conducted Monday and Tuesday night shows that just 26% of American voters favor passage of the legislation. Forty-eight percent (48%) are opposed while 26% are not sure. The bi-partisan agreement among influential Senators and the White House has been met with bi-partisan opposition among the public. The measure is opposed by 47% of Republicans, 51% of Democrats, and 46% of those not affiliated with either major party.

The enforcement side of the debate is clearly where the public passion lies on the issue. Seventy-two percent (72%) of voters say it is Very Important for “the government to improve its enforcement of the borders and reduce illegal immigration.” That view is held by 89% of Republicans, 65% of Democrats, and 63% of unaffiliated voters
Enjoy your holiday weekend, lawmakers, and I hope you hear it loud and clear from your constituents, at least those of you who aren't avoiding them.
