Pew Poll: Immigration Pessimism on the Rise

Support for a pathway to legal status for undocumented immigrants remains strong, but the number of Americans who believe immigrants are a drain on the country is on the rise, according to a new Pew Research Center report.

The center reports 72 percent of Americans said in a poll conducted in May that undocumented immigrants currently living in the U.S. should be allowed to stay in the country legally, if certain requirements are met. That result has fluctuated only slightly in recent years, according to Pew.

But the survey of 2,002 adults also found the number of respondents who see immigrants as a strain on housing, health care and the jobs market has increased 6 points, from 35 percent to 41 percent, over the past two years.

The survey found President Barack Obama with some of his lowest issue approval ratings for his handling of immigration. Only 37 percent approved of the president’s immigration moves, while 56 percent disapproved.

The poll had a 2.5-point margin of error.

    If you try to feed your whole neighborhood, your family will go bankrupt. Same thing with the USA and our Central and South American neighborhood.

  • Klatnu Veradida

    ” undocumented immigrants currently living in the U.S. should be allowed to stay in the country legally, if certain requirements are met” WHY? Why reward those who will not follow the law?

  • Honest Abe

    Americans are very slow to see the light!

    Derrrp! No kidding, especially all the Muslims being imported, the majority of which will never assimilate, they cannot work and will be on the dole forever spawning yet another generational welfare parasitic group of people! All so that the Democrats can stay in power forever, what kind of future do they think they are leaving their children? Well of course they have no souls why would they care.

    . . . but the number of Americans who believe immigrants are a drain on the country is on the rise . . .

    Safe bet: A lot of them have last names like Gomez, Rodriguez, Sanchez and Lopez.

  • Yu So Wong

    So now selfish Americans think that the Nation that they and their ancestors built and defended with sweat and blood – and its jobs and wealth – should go to Americans and their children and not to the citizens of Mexico and South America and Africa? Obama is not going to like hearing this.

  • Blandly Urbane

    “…respondents who see immigrants as a strain…” As it has become so interchangeable these days are the “immigrants” immigrants or illegal/undocumented aliens/immigrants?

    WHAT WAS THE QUESTION??? Word for word please..

  • dubs11

    Put the glue down man….

  • guido sarducci

    Wake Up, People! This is an INVASION from Mexico! One fourth of Mexico’s entire population has illegally come into the US. L.A. is second only to Mexico City with the largest Mexican population!

    Pls read Ann Coulter’s latest best seller, Adios America for the truth about the deadly and hyper corrupt and costly INVASION from Mexico.

    This situation is completely and wildly out of control and will not end well.

  • guido sarducci

    Dangerously so and to their own stupid peril!

  • sunnyroberto

    ” undocumented immigrants currently living in the U.S. should be allowed to stay in the country legally, if certain requirements are met . . ”

    That question was worded that way to get a positive response. What kind of requirements?? Sign some piece of paper saying they will learn English?? So then what, will they get deported in two years if they haven’t ??

    In reality, except for felony convictions, illegals are never deported.

  • carlyle_ny

    Really, who is there that doesn’t know that all this marks the beginning of the end of the United States? Who is there that doesn’t know that all this has been orchestrated ultimately by corporate powers that have corrupted the government and engineered this social change all for the sake of cheap labor and increased profits? But there is such a thing as justice, even if it is only poetic justice. One day these very corporate powers, these immensely wealthy and powerful people, will find themselves stripped of everything they own by a government voted into office by the impoverished “new Americans.” The Second American Revolution is only another good recession away, and then it’s—off with their heads!

  • I am surviving Obama

    Give them a green card. BUT they and their first generation offspring can NOT vote.
    If we really want to make it so that the illegals will stop coming here. Just make it a law that they MUST vote for a Republican. The demoKKKrat plantation owners will build a wall so high around our country, a fly wouldn’t get in.

    allowed to stay in the country legally, if certain requirements are met. That result has fluctuated only slightly in recent years, according to Pew.”

    Most Americans are either ignorant of the results the last time comprehensive immigration reform passed 30 years ago or are content allowing the top one-percent to continue destroying the country for their own benefit. Rewarding illegal immigration with a path to citizenship will only encourage more of it. In 1986 there were an estimated 5 million illegal immigrants in the country when the Immigration Reform and Control Act Passed. Today there are 11-20 million. The federal government conveniently and purposely didn’t follow through with their commitment to permanently end illegal immigration . Anyone who trusts them this time around is a damn fool. They will never follow through with their promises and this process will continue repeating itself every 30 years if we allow it. Lets not go down that path again.

  • mickrussom

    Aliens are the lowest scum from the worst parts of the world. These low life scum vote illegally and vote for scum rat vermin democRATs to give them handouts. The low life alien scum are the tools of Tammany hall.

    Obama is a traitor. Obama runs a baby-Stalin dictatorial regime. Obama is an imperial president. Obama and his regime are the enemies within. Obama and his regime are the enemies of faith, freedom, family and liberty. Obama has bought our LEOs and Military with Pay and Pension with Printed Fake Federal Reserve Notes. LEOs and Military should note that those FRNs are paper, but our freedom costs much blood. We need to end thus regime and most of the government needs to be re-chained as the Constitution wanted. All of the acolytes of Alinsky, Cloward and Piven should be arrested and imprisoned for their sedition, for their treason, for their utter evil.

    Debt is Wealth. Ignorance is Strength. Freedom is Slavery. War is Peace. Cold is Warm.

  • JDCampbell

    Our immigration system is broken when illegal aliens are given priority over legal immigrants.

  • verbusen

    If the public realized how many immigrants (legal or not) remained on welfare these numbers saying they were a drain would be much higher. On the web is this but this is before 6 years of Obama so the numbers are probably over 70% now, also note this is after 10 years in America. “In 2009, 57 percent of households headed by an immigrant (legal and illegal) with children (under 18) used at least one welfare program,”

  • michael s

    Maybe we should look back in our history, to see, what the future holds. Here is one example.

    There was a name for people that couldn’t control their borders and stop the
    overwhelming influence of new arrivals. First, they lost their identity, their language and their way of life. Then, their history was be erased. Finally, with only
    archeological evidence to prove their existence, their spirits fade.

    They were American Indians. They are pretty much extinct.

    Only ones breaking in to homes is people from Baltimore, give these poor illegal people a break, there is enough Americans that have already stank up this country

  • donniea

    Anything obama is in favor of should be opposed as a solid rule. He is by far the most corrupt president in US History.

  • Prelusive007

    There is a very significant difference in the “immigrant” who is or has gone through the legal channels to become a citizen and the “illegal alien” who has sought to thwart our legal system to come to our country and remain illegally.

    I don’t understand why so many Americans don’t seem to understand that difference or the implications of allowing illegals to remain in our country AGAINST OUR LAWS but I am very sure the day will come when most Americans will regret not taking a more active role in stopping this illegal transfer of our resources to non-citizens.

  • Bloodaxe

    What the American people want as far as illegal immigration is concerned is 2 things: (1) SEAL THE DAMN BORDER so tight a mouse can’t get through and (2) ROUND UP AND BOOT OUT ALL THE W E T S. Got it? You simple f*cks in DC should do what the people you supposedly represent want you to do OR RESIGN.
    Put it to nationwide vote and see what happens.

  • Bloodaxe

    I read her book, and as a former Border Patrol Agent I can vouch for everything in it. The situation now is worse than ever and the next wave of immigrants is going to be the worst scumbags on the planet, hordes of Muslims. They make the Mexicans look like Boy George and Mary Poppins.

  • katzkiner

    North Carolina has become a sex tourism destination for Latin American pedophiles, in the last 17 months almost 1200 NC children have been raped by illegals who should never have been in the country. (NCFire) JUST ONE STATE!

    Polls mean absolutely nothing every legal American I talk with including Hispanics says the same thing…Round them up send them home, fine and imprison business owners who employ them. Make them go through the legal immigration channels like everyone else. And place no entry status on any who do not voluntarily turn themselves in for deportation by the stated.

  • Kevin

  • katzkiner

    And one thing Ann said is very true, when you have 25% to 35% of a countries’ population illegally in another country that is not immigration,
    that is an invasion.
    We are getting the dregs and outlaws of Mexico. Phoenix has turned into the car jacking & kidnapping capital of the southwest.
    When the law gets hot on these outlaws trails they just skip back across the border.
    If you follow the immigrant crime you will notice most of the illegals charged with rape & murder have already been deported or fled custody at least once.

  • GrannyGripes

    NOT possible that even 50% of this nation supports any type of Amnesty . bogus poll.

  • Apu Bugolligosh

    “72 percent”? Yeah, right.

  • libros gratis

    In my opinion, all of us should stop complaining, because inmigrants who come to this country are just looking for a better life, the almost die trying to come to a country that gives not rights and threats them as garbage, but people will continue entering to the u.s., because there will always be hope to get a better life.
    American people should try to be the best they can be, so nobody would get their opportunities.
    They simply reason why foreign people are getting the opportunities is because they know the cost of freedom and they work until the end for being those who get a better future.

  • JC907

    My European wife just got her citizenship finally after 13 years (yes, 13 years) even though I’m an American citizen who worked over 24 years in law enforcement and security including 2 1/2 years in active warzones providing diplomatic security and training local police while representing our country. While she fulfilled the physical presence requirements, she was denied the first time because I didn’t tell State she would stay with her mom in Europe while I was in Iraq. The agent then told us when we could reapply and be certain of approval. Amazingly he even had our fees refunded. I later found out this was a discretionary item they could have let go especially considering we were married and have a child together.

    The second time, the time we were supposed to be certain of approval, we drove through a blinding snow storm for 5 hours only to be denied again simply because the agent assigned had just got the case and told us “…I just got here and have 30 cases on my desk as of yesterday. I haven’t had a chance to review yours and I am not going to do it today. So, you’re just going to have to come back.” We were not refunded our $650 that time.

    Finally, we decided to wait until we moved to Texas to reapply and at the first and only interview, the agent stated “…I see you’ve had some issues with our agency in the past. I’m going to try and resolve that today. She received approval and was awarded citizenship the next day.

    My wife comes to this country with a bachelors degree in education (full WES approval), is married to a US citizen who served this country honorably and knows this country’s history and functioning better than most US citizens including the USCIS agents and yet, it still took 13 years.

    At her ceremony were 51 others: 10 Mexicans, 6 Indians, 5 Pakistanis, 5 Nigerians, 2 Ghanans, 5 other Africans, 5 from Muslim states, 5 Chinese (PRC) and the rest from assorted other countries. Only 2 others were European: 1 from Germany and 1 from the UK. This fits perfectly with the changed quotas for entry. The government is focusing on Latin Americans Africans/Arabs and Chinese while reducing the number of Europeans purposefully even though Europeans tend to be much better educated and bring something to the table. I have no problem with immigration by anyone from anywhere as long as it’s legal and done for the best of the country. I can’t understand the logic of bringing in millions who came illegally and bring little or nothing but mouths to feed for from my pocket and fast tracking them and thinking this will turn out good in the future somehow.

    The system is broken but only because the laws we already have are not being followed and because it’s been politicized.

  • amuncat

    It’s hard to believe that over 70% of Americans think that illegal aliens deserve a pathway… I personally think that they should be given NADA! We owe them nothing! Each time they come and are allowed to stay only encourages more to follow that path!!!! Let’s start focusing on LEGAL immigrants, that way we encourage more legals! Illegal aliens should be allowed to literally starve! The children they have here should not be given benefits of any kind, including education! OR, take children away from them, foster/adoption, because the illegal alien parents are putting their children at risk and instability!!! Somewhere along the line between gay marriage and Obama care, we have gotten the idea that people who come here illegally shouldn’t be deported!!!!

  • Freeland_Dave

    Why are you purposefully sidestepping the word illegal in the phrase illegal alien? If you came here illegally you should get treated humanely and immediately deported back to the country you came from. If you attempt to illegally enter the US again and are caught you should be imprisoned. I have no problem with those who go through the established process to come here and become a citizen. But when you circumvent that legal process and come here illegally I have absolutely no sympathy for you what so ever and you are a drain on the US American Citizens who live here. And no, the revolving door of amnesty is nothing but a ruse. Like the Mafia laundering money to make it clean. If you truly here to survive and work then do it legally. As for working hard, how hard do you work to do something illegal and try to pass it off as good honest hard work. Get yourself legal or be deported.

    Mexicans are not ruining the country. They’re just trying to survive and work hard on jobs which “American” don’t want to do anyway.

  • Oh crap

    Lets see we are going to reward those that break American laws, by making them citizens. you think they will start to follow the laws then?

    look let me be clear the house,and senate are very much as criminal as the illegals. Thats why they love them common criminals.


  • Right-wing Realist

    Remember white man, you have an obligation to take care of these people. Your taxes should do nicely for the transformation of America.

  • Cahal the Mad™

    Illegals contribute nothing and take everything. What’s more, they have no respect for out laws, our culture, or anything our coutnry was founded on. They are also racist and think our country “belongs” to them, that they have every “right” to just take it from us.

  • pepina

    Because.. many of “you” are here for one reason alone…and that is the old $$$. You don’t care about this country… most of you don’t even LIKE this country! You break our laws by coming here – illegally – and demand that we accept your language, your customs, your holidays.. while figuratively ‘spitting’ on us. If it is, truly, respect that you crave.. then do things the right way. And.. how would you feel if a stranger walked into YOUR home, demanded that you speak his language, raided your refrigerator and your bank account, took over your TV and then complained about your “rude thoughts.”

  • Freeland_Dave

    At least the people you are complaining about are mostly made up of legal citizens of this nation and not the flood of illegal aliens that want the same welfare benefits. I agree that welfare is out of control but the illegal alien problem is bigger. Take care of that problem and then we can work on the welfare problem together.

  • Oh crap


  • Pro_sanity

    Do any other countries allow this kind of insanity?

  • Freedom?

    Morons who couldn’t see around corners now can see why people were upset about illegal immigration when it becomes blatantly obvious, and can’t be blamed on “just a few bad apples” as they often do.

    I guess the bright side is these dim bulbs have finally had illuminated for themselves enough “proof” to see that illegals are not good for anything, and need to be deported and prevented from coming over in the first place.

    This is just the cost to the county of Los Angeles. Who is covering the costs while services and jobs for the middle class go away?

    LOS ANGELES ( — A projected $650 million in welfare benefits will be distributed to illegal alien parents in 2013, county officials said Monday.

    Supervisor Michael D. Antonovich announced the latest figures from the Department of Public Social Services, which showed more than $376 million in CalWORKs benefits and food stamps combined have been distributed through July to illegal alien parents for their native-born children.

    Approximately $54 million in welfare payments are issued each month, consisting of nearly $20 million in CalWORKs and $34 million in food stamp issuances, according to the data.

    An estimated 100,000 children of 60,000 undocumented parents receive aid in Los Angeles County, according to Antonovich, who said this year’s projections — up about $1 million from the nearly $53 million in total benefits issued in July 2012 — underscore the economic impact of the nation’s immigration debate.

    “When you add the $550 million for public safety and nearly $500 million for healthcare, the total cost for illegal immigrants to county taxpayers exceeds $1.6 billion dollars a year,” Antonovich said in a statement. “These costs do not even include the hundreds of millions of dollars spent annually for education.”

How many immigrant families of 5 (or non immigrant, for that matter) are paying $65,000/yr in just federal taxes? 1%, maybe? All the rest are on welfare and are a drain on our fragile economic system.

    It is time for Americans to withhold taxes from the Federal Government to force a showdown. No taxes means no money to pay illegals and invaders to invade the US, not to mention that the foreigners motivations are not to be Americans , but instead to transplant their country and religion, and culture to America. The Federal Government wishes these people into this country so they can be played off one another to create tension, as ” divide and conquer” is one of the oldest strategies..

  • dougtheavenger

    Neither current immigration patterns nor falling wages are the result of free market economics. Our government effectively pays people to come to the US and work for low wages at tax payer expense. Millions of full-time workers need and get food stamps, EITC, subsidized housing, WIC, etc. Much of the payroll of Walmart and McDonalds is effectively funded by the US tax payer. Government intervention has provided US employers with a semi-captive labor pool at artificially low wages.

  • Dnice

    An American teenager living with parents and working at McDonalds for $7.25/hour is not poor and does not qualify for any form of welfare.

    A 30 year old immigrant with kids working full time at McDonalds needs and gets medicaid, food stamps, EITC, subsidized housing, WIC, etc.

    Cheap labor is subsidized by the tax payer and is a transfer of wealth from middle class tax payers to business.

    One thing I think most Americans don’t understand about this issue. Once you give any of these illegals one foot in the door as to legal status, i.e. “work permits,” exactly how long do you think it will take before La Raza will cry kicking and screaming that these immigrants are being exploited and that they are subject to “taxation without representation?” I can hear it already. “We will not be treated as second class citizens!” All I’m saying is be careful what you wish for.

Racially, they remain mostly Europeans (Spaniards have the greatest percent) and West Africans (Yorubas), with a sizable native group formed by descendants of Chinese immigrants. None of that we can say about the kind of illegals that are at the present crossing US borders.

  • Jamie

    The overwhelming majority of illegal immigrants in the US are actually very hard workers. They perform back breaking labor for minimal pay in the agriculture, hotel, home building, home maintenance and child care industries. Many also live in squalor that most of us would consider unfit for our pets.

    They also routinely receive paychecks, with taxes deducted. However, since they are illegal, they cannot obtain a social security card. Lack of a social security card prevents almost anyone from receiving benefits such as food stamps, Medicaid, medicare, welfare benefits, unemployment benefits and insurance, disability insurance, etc. They often forego routine and critically needed healthcare for preventive medicine, and care needed to treat serious work related injuries. They’ll jut put a band aid on it and go back to work.

    Many of these workers are supporting families in their home country, or just barely scraping by here, in the US. They often live under the constant threat and fear of deportation. While the jobs here are very hard and don’t pay well, they still offer a better opportunity and living for these people than what is available to them where they came from. The choices there are often to join a gang or become a prostitute. Not much hope there.

    Some adult illegal immigrants entered this country as small children or infants. They have assimilated well, and wish to become fully contributing citizens. They can’t. This immigration reform bill would have at least provided a way for many of these folks to do just that. As it stands now, the legal path is very difficult, long, and expensive for anyone desiring to become a citizen.

    Think about this as you enjoy a nice, crisp cup of orange juice, a glass of milk, eat a juicy peach, or eat out at a restaurant. There were likely a number of illegal immigrants who were directly involved in the production and delivery of those services and products. Unless you are Amish, you benefit from illegal immigrants.

    Geezer, you would have to be really, really dense to not realize the tremendous drain Mexican illegals put on the economy. The Mexicans receive free medical, free education, free housing, free electricity, and food stamps. Doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure that one out. Know this too: Mexican illegals have zero intentions for becoming assimilated by American culture. The opposite is true. They want to bring Mexican culture here and to hell with all those white people.

  • Jamie

    I’m not saying US citizens are not capable of doing these jobs, I’m saying current US citizens won’t do these jobs! Not at minimum wage. The earnings of people in “poverty” in the US far outstrip the earnings of the poor in most other countries. It has NOTHING to do with race. It has everything to do with work ethic and perspective. America doesn’t have an unemployment problem, America has an entitlement problem. That’s what this is all about.

    Nobody is arguing that most illegals are hard working, but that doesn’t mean they should be allowed to violate our laws.. And that is why they are called “illegals.” If they want to come here and work, then let them do it the way all other immigrants have done it – legally.

  • harshcritic1967

    So please tell us, at what point does unlimited immigration by uneducated, illiterate, unskilled people become a problem? After the next 20 million? Maybe 40 million more?

If we had metered, limited, legal immigration, where people have to learn English and our history and constitution before becoming citizens (the way things used to work), then it’s all good. But opening the floodgates as we are, for the people we are allowing in, is insane, and suicidal. Notice that immigration from Europe IS strictly limited. Almost all immigrants now, illegal and legal, are from third world hellholes, many muslim. This is by design. Obama said that he would “fundamentally transform America”, and he was not lying.

  • RETUSAF1995

    Support for a pathway to legal status for illegal aliens remains strong? There has always been a path, go home fill out a visa application and wait for approval. No approval you stay home.

    BY who? The illegal aliens themselves? Where i live there never was or is any support. Plenty for prison and deportations. These people have a country, a government allow their government to take care of them.

  • cadilac76

    I truly see no hope to solve our immigration mess anymore.
    We got people who still talking about deporting 12 million undocumented which gona cost us trillion of dollars to do so that’s if we can do it.
    Besides we gona be destroying 40 to 50 million us families by doing so.
    And you got people who’s more realistic and godly who’s fighting hard to solve this issue sadly with zero result.
    And there is people who doesn’t want to do anything at all and keep undocumented in limbo which I believe it’s a big mistake to do so.
    Sad sad sad we can’t solve this simple easy issue for more than 10 year’s

  • mar999

    Allowing an unchecked invasion of America by the impoverished peasants of the third world will eventually destroy and bankrupt the country. The real hope of the President and Democrats is these illegals will soon be newly minted Democrat voters. The real loser is the rule of law and America, Americans, their culture customs and language. We are living in what is the modern day version of the last days of the Roman Empire. The Republic is nearly finished and may or may not survive the next 16 months of this Presidency. What comes after America? What kind of world will exist without America?

    It is not just the illegals in the country and those illegals who cross our wide open (unenforced per Obama) border, it is also all the legal immigrants that Obama is importing wholesale that concerns me. Obama is bringing in another 100,000 Syrian Muslims this year. Almost all are given welfare and all benefits.


    They’re lying. Who’s going to deport them if they don’t pay a fine, pay back taxes, or learn English? No one will. It’s a lie.

    Down the tubes.

    As we always knew, California
    and American elections are filled with fraud and corruption. Thanks to a new
    poll, we now know that approximately 13% of illegal aliens vote. Since they are
    already criminals, stealing ID’s or using phony ID’s; lie to get welfare, steal
    jobs—why not vote as they have nothing to lose. Since they can not be deported
    or jailed, they have nothing to lose. Obama is protecting these law breakers.

    Could this be why real citizens don’t vote—the illegal aliens outvote them?
    Worse, in close elections illegal aliens can make the difference. Corruption?
    Look at the ballot box. In fact, they could have elected a President and

    “Since 80 percent of non-citizens vote Democratic, according to the study,
    non-citizen participation could have “been large enough to change meaningful
    election outcomes including Electoral College votes [in North Carolina in
    2008], and Congressional elections” such as the 2008 race in Minnesota in which
    Al Franken was elected to the U.S. Senate, giving “Senate Democrats the pivotal
    60th vote” to pass Obamacare. The Old Dominion/George Mason study
    was sharply attacked by progressive critics, but the mounting evidence makes
    clear this is a real problem.”

    Read this disturbing Steve Franks report at

    It seems to me that a greatly
    successful Entrepreneur and top billionaire businessman Donald Trump would be a
    perfect choice for America as the president. With none of the questionable affiliation with the
    corruption in Washington and the power grabbers as the Clinton’s, whose unsavory reputation goes back to their
    earliest beginnings in Madam Hillary’s law office. Whereas Trump has
    exceptional abilities, to draw America out of its financial crisis and that he cannot be brought by insistent mega

    He is unlike many of the incompetent
    contributors who have shown us nothing but failure, as we are asphyxiated in a
    growing 18 Trillion dollar deficit, and a illegal immigration invasion out of
    control with much elevated by the Obama White House and his under-lords. Their
    massive give a ways of food stamps, entitlements to not only American citizens
    and legal residents, but the millions of illegal aliens who have arrived here under
    Obama’s watch, with being offered the possibility of amnesty?

    The great initiation of a Donald
    Trump ultimatum was that he stated “I Would Build the Greatest Wall you have
    ever seen on the Mexican Border.” Trump cannot be bought like the Hillary Clintons
    and other politicians, who must be provided patron money to survive. Trump
    doesn’t need ‘Super Pacs’ money that wealthy donors use as favors to sweeten many
    politicians positions in Congress. Trump
    would be completely isolated from bribery that the People are ONLY aware of;
    that sometimes comes to light.

    Senator Ted Cruz would be perfect
    for runners-up or even President. His proposal would be an end to Obamacare, abolishment
    of the IRS and a simple flat tax introduced and the Environmental Protection
    Agency brought back into reasonable line. He would reduce the radical size of a
    copious government and stop the wrecking of our country.

    Donald Trump has the fortitude to stop the jobs going to China, Mexico and
    other countries. He said that he believes in ‘Free Trade’ but he would charge
    35% tariffs to anybody importing products into America. As
    to China a
    major culprit, he also said he would end the decades of this nation’s
    fraudulent manipulation of their currency. Click on Donald Trumps website to
    read his manifesto to return America to
    its greatness at

    It would be his obligation to lower the corporate tax, so
    that companies building outside the U.S; returning to manufacture their goods
    in America. By
    cutting the corporate tax rate, at least 2 Trillion dollars would find it
    returning to the U.S from tax havens, a benefit that would spiral the hiring of
    the estimated 35 million unemployed Americans and a decline in food stamps. Trump
    has a tough backbone and cannot be bribed by special interests and other foreign
    benefactors and would reject any issue, which this President and his minions have
    navigated against the American Economy. He is not beholding to the lobbyists and
    can stop them from tearing this country apart. He would stop the ultra Liberal
    zealots from changing our nation, into something Americans could not recognize.

    There’s always been a pathway to citizenship in this country — but it made distinctions between those who’d be contributors, and those who’d be a drain. Lately, it appears the administration is favoring those who’d be a drain and excluding the rest. It’s probably already too late for this country.

Our country has never experienced a high rate of immigration that has developed in the last 40 years. Close the border. Go after visa violators.

    lllegals drain an estimated $50bn from CA’s annual budget alone and they will never put that back into our state. Nationwide the numbers must be in the billions for each state as well. So far not one dem or Repub has been able to explain why unskilled, illiterate (even on their own language) non assimilating non tax paying dependent is good for our economy? Neither can these politicians explain how the $40Bn annually sent back to Mexico by the illegals is good for our economy. But it isn’t just Mexico. Mexico has already exported 25% of its population to the US!

  • recliner70

    I consider myself middle class but when I go to the grocery store and watch family after family who cannot speak English, are dressed in clothes reflecting a foreign country,etc but who pay for their items with a benefits card, it is hard to believe that these immigrants are paying their own way. I know that when they need medical care they have a card for that. When they need housing one of the major religious charities is involved in that aspect of their life. I am not sure if the federal government allocates money for the education of their children or the cost is born by the local school district and state aid. I do know this though that because I live in a rust belt city in the northeast the federal government is sending thousands of immigrants to repopulate the city and they cost money. Don’t tell me that they are legal refugees and deserve the help because I know a lot people in this city who are citizens of this country and receive a lot less help for themselves and their children. Maybe that is the way it should be but we should try taking care of our own citizens first.

If he was anything even close to a communist, he would never have approved the bailouts of so many private sector businesses, but he WOULD have enacted legislation to prevent crimes like those committed in the financial sector from 2001 through 2008. Instead, privately-owned businesses have more money than they EVER have in history. If he’s a communist, he’s not a very good one, since he keeps enriching capitalists beyond their wildest dreams.

    Rigged? They seem to always be accurate

  • dridata

    First of all I find it hard to believe that 72% of Americans support allowing undocumented illegal alien staying in the US. This statement is a lie and is based and biased on how the question was asked and the supporting information regarding if certain requirements are met qualifications. Reporting only half of the conclusions is simply a way to have the data represent a skewed result. And I don’t care what mathematicians say, sampling 2002 people out of 320 million to make these predictions is not accurate. I suspect that most of the people polled are Dems or Dems lying and saying they are Republicans. I’d also like to see the breakdown by State or region as to where the people polled live. Just another case of organizations like Pew and liberal media to try to tell us what to think.

  • dridata

    The only accurate thing about that poll was that Americans do not approve of our current idiot in chief’s handling of the immigration issue and that is probably wrong as well since the number is probably a lot lower than that. Please explain how 72% approve of allowing illegals to remain, which is obamas position, but then only 37% approve of obamas position on immigration? Kind of opposite results don’t you think?

  • Toby Jones

    Support for a pathway to legal status for undocumented immigrants remains strong is Bull S_it. Very few citizens want them legalized. Obama is trying to push his wants on the people and does not listen to what the people want. I cannot wait to get rid of this incompetent fool.

    Mr. Ayers may or may not be, but it doesn’t matter. Mr. Obama has done nothing to further any imaginary “communist agenda,” but has, on the contrary, done everything to buttress the private sector, which is now enjoying the highest profits in history. Again, if Mr. Obama has a “communist agenda,” he has failed miserably — but, as a champion of private enterprise, he’s presided over the most prosperous period in human history. True, that success is almost exclusively the province of VERY big business at the expense of “mom and pop” businesses.
