Poll: The American Public Rejects Obama’s Amnesty Plans

From the Daily Caller:

The Public Rejects Obama’s Immigration Policies

By Neil Munro | July 28, 2014

President Barack Obama is pushing for a huge amnesty in the weeks before Americans go to the polls, but a new poll shows that the swing-voters are deeply hostile to his immigration policies and to illegal immigration, and are growing very worried about legal immigration.

Only seven percent of swing-voting independents say the 50,000-plus Central American youths who have crossed the Texas border under Obama’s oversight (since October) should be allowed to stay, according to the poll released on July 28 by YouGov and The Economist.

Eighty percent of independents say the youths should be returned now, or once conditions are safe in their home country, the survey said. The score for independents are critical, because their votes are up for grabs in the November election, which may give the GOP a majority in the Senate…

But we thought the Republicans had to embrace amnesty to please the precious independents?

Obama’s immigration policies are backed by only 32 percent of independents. He’s also backed by only 62 percent of Democrats, 21 percent of independents, 32 percent of moderates, 42 percent of Hispanics, and 23 percent of whites.

So Obama’s immigration policies are not even backed by a majority of Hispanics.

His greatest support on the issue comes from African-Americans, but even they give him only 61 percent support.

Which is damned ironic, given that blacks are the group that will suffer the most from amnesty. They will lose jobs to these illegals. They will also lose welfare benefits to them.

Few people believe the White House’s claim that the 100,000-plus Central American adults, youths and children are fleeing violent crimes.

Only 28 percent of independents, and 31 percent of moderates, say the migrants are fleeing crime. But 59 percent of independents and 55 percent of moderates say they’re seeking an “amnesty.”

Also, there is some evidence that the border-meltdown is causing people to rethink assumption that they should welcome immigrants. The poll said that 61 percent of independents and 58 percent of moderates said that “immigration” — not illegal immigration — is a “very serious” problem. Only 3 percent said it was not a problem…

Which is yet another way in which (the laudable) legal immigrants are being hurt by all of this.

    Perhaps 99% of the Jews rejected Hitler’s plans. And?
