Terrible news for the open borders/we love illegals crowd
Most American voters think Arizona was right to pass its own immigration law, and think the Obama administration should wait and see how the new law works rather than try to stop it, according to a Fox News poll released Friday.
The new poll finds 61 percent of voters nationally think Arizona was right to take action instead of waiting for the federal government to do something on immigration. That’s more than twice as many as the 27 percent who think securing the border is a federal responsibility and Arizona should have waited for Washington to act.
Of course, Chuckie Schumer wants Arizona’s governor, Janet Brewer, to delay implementation of the law in order to wait for Los Federales to get their comprehensive amnesty bill passed. In response, Brewer told him “no. Now go away or I will taunt you a second time.”
Significantly more voters think the Obama administration should wait and see how the new law works (64 percent) than think the administration should try to stop it (15 percent).
In today’s politics, 64% sounds kinda like a mandate. But, then, Obama and the Democrats failed to listen to the Will Of The People on healthcare, as well, and passed their monstrosity, so, who’s to say they won’t go ahead and try and stop Arizona from using their 10th Amendment rights to protect the people of Arizona, while passing a new immigration bill that will be all about giving illegals an easy pathway to citizenship while ignoring the problems that make it easy for the illegals to come here in the first place.
Asked how to deal with illegal immigration, the poll shows large numbers favor using National Guard troops to help border patrol agents (79 percent), and imposing fines and criminal charges against employers who hire illegal aliens (79 percent).
I can agree with that. How about you?
