Poll finds 6 in 10 back
granting legal status to
undocumented immigrants

Associated Press, by Erica Werner and Dennis Junius

Original Article

Posted By:Ribicon, 1/23/2013 10:18:09 AM

Washington — More than six in 10 Americans now favor allowing illegal immigrants to eventually become citizens, a major increase in support driven by a turnaround in Republicans’ opinions after the 2012 elections. The finding, in a new Associated Press-GfK poll, comes as the Republican Party seeks to increase its meager support among Latino voters, who turned out in large numbers to help reelect President Obama in November.(Snip) In the coming weeks, he’s expected to push aggressively for ways to create an eventual pathway to citizenship for the estimated 11 million illegal immigrants already in this country.

Comments:
Official line is that there are now 11 million wonderful migrants, despite a starting point of 12 million and some 3 million streaming across the border since 2004 or so.

Poll numbers almost certainly bogus, but you have to give credit to the government-sponsored push behind "amnesty," starting in the schools.

On the subject of a different form of immigration,I just read on the blog CT Capitol Report here in CT that entire families are moving from Puerto Rico directly into homeless shelters in CT. Can you say "Welfare State"?
After all, we have to help the most vulnerable.

There should be a way for people who want to come here to become citizens. We should also not reward people who are here illegally.

C´mon folks, this was a poll of hollyweird rich folks (who need maids and gardeners) and guilt ridden demos (who need to ´do good´), and of course the necessary illegals and dead folks. Ya´ know, the usual demo voter pool.
No way it was a poll of normal Americans.

Pandering really, really works well for US doesn´t it? A polyglot of ppl who refuse to assimilate, solely here for freebies and benefity. Ain´t we grand?

Seal borders, fine employers for illegals and ZERO immigration from anywhere till we sort the primarily RAT mess out.

Why not simply annex Mexico and drone out the cartels?

As for Puerto Ricans-- aren´t they already citizens?

I call BS....unless the only place they polled was among the illegal population already here. The undocumented don´t all want to become legal. They get more benefit by being here ´temporarily´. Honestly, I´d expect this kind of a poll result from the "undocumented´ alone.

Yo..yo..As for the Puerto Ricans in Ct... The PRs were brought into Ct. in the 50´s as migrant workers in the shade grown tobacco industry. At first they were kept locked up in concentration camp conditions and were very poorly treated. Eventually, the camps were closed and the PRs assimilated in Ct. Most are good US citizens. Veterans of the armed forces. VERY GOOD warriors!! Can´t comment on the recent arrivals.

I´d like to see the questions asked. Without them this is meaningless. Here in AZ a poll was taken asking if you´d support legal status for illegals if the border was secured. That had 67% support, but it hinged on the border being secured. I have a feeling that was part of this poll too but they´re leaving it out.

What is the guarantee that we won´t have another 12 million illegal, illiterate immigrants who will further burden our health and welfare system? So far, I have heard nothing on the building of the border fence, strict enforcement of the present immigration laws and the actual necessity of learning English and American history before you become a citizen.

I don´t know one person who would be against granting these people permanent residency, if we truly could believe that immigration issues would be fixed, but they won´t. It will be just another ´here we go again´ that fails.

And nine out of ten pollsters privately agree amongst themselves that scientific polling is not at all scientific and inherently biased. I am talking about the loaded questions they pose, never mind the lack of true random numbers to be had. Yup that chemical rubber company random number table is bogus. They just fudge results with it anyway. Any attempts to generate a random number sequence eventually resorts to repetative patterns. Feel better now?

Guilty. My ancestors came here for the Social Security, free healthcare, Section 8 housing, Food-stamps, and the Obamaphones. Take all those things away and they would have all stayed home. /s

A suspect has been taken into custody in connection with a string of random highway shootings that left three people wounded in the Kansas City, Missouri, area.

A man who beheaded his girlfriend before stabbing himself has been sentenced to life with a minimum term of 20 years in prison. Aras Hussein, 21, stabbed student Reema Ramzan, 18, in her chest with a kitchen knife and began to decapitate her while she was still alive. He then stabbed himself in the chest, took his clothes off and went outside his flat in Shirecliffe, Sheffield. A neighbour saw him standing naked and covered in blood while holding a wad of money and a passport. Hussein admitted manslaughter on the grounds of diminished responsibility but denied murder at his

Half of all foreign doctors in Britain do not have the necessary skills to work here but can practise because the competency exam is too easy, a major study finds. The majority of the 88,000 foreign doctors in the health service would fail exams if they were held to the same standard as their British colleagues, according to the research. The disclosure will add to concerns over the reliance of the NHS on foreign doctors. The language ability of some has been questioned in recent years. The research potentially shows more wide-ranging inadequacies. Around 1,300 foreign physicians are licensed each

Kim Kardashian may be one of the most sought-after women in the world - but one man can´t stay far enough away from the reality TV star. Retail assistant Mike Amess has an unusual phobia: he is absolutely petrified of the Kardashian family.

Fredon — The U.S. Supreme Court will decide on Friday whether it will hear a Sussex County man’s challenge to New Jersey’s handgun carry laws. The lawsuit, brought by John Drake, challenges the “justifiable need” requirement the state asks for carrying a handgun. It has drawn the support of the National Rifle Association and 19 other states, who see the case as a possible watershed moment for reevaluating how the Second Amendment and state regulations interact. The nation’s highest court now has scheduled a conference for Friday morning on whether to decide to hear the case in its entirety, according

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

Look, everyone loves Sean Connery, particularly Sean Connery. That’s why he plays Sean Connery in every movie he’s in. People love that Scottish brogue so much, they don’t mind that he has it when he plays Juan Sánchez Villa-Lobos Ramírez, an immortal Spaniard in Highlander.
