Poll Shows DREAM Policy a Hit With Latino Voters

Rate this Entry

So much for all the antis who said Latino citizens of the US don't really care all that much about immigration. From the LA Times:



President Obama's decision to extend administrative relief to an estimated 800,000 young illegal immigrants has won favor with Latino voters in key battleground states, according to a new poll.


The Latino Decisions survey found that Obama's move had wiped out an earlier 'enthusiasm deficit' among Hispanic voters over the administration's deportation policies. By contrast, the poll found that Latino voters were sharply opposed to Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney's call for illegal immigrants to 'self-deport.'


Voters in five states with significant portions of Latino voters -- Florida, Colorado, Nevada, Virginia and Arizona -- were asked about Obama's new policy of halting deportations and offering temporary work permits to some illegal immigrants who came to the U.S. before they were 16, lived here for at least five years and have clean records.


Forty-nine percent of the Latino voters surveyed said Obama's move made them more enthusiastic about the president, compared with 14% who were less enthusiastic. Thirty-four percent said it would have no effect on their attitude toward Obama.

    While early polls can be provide a temporary bump, it needs to be seen if the same is sustained over the next few months. In my view the early bump is going be to very short as next Monday, Supreme Court will announce its verdict on SB1070. If SCOTUS upholds SB1070 or some sections of it, anti immigrant forces will be emboldened. In this backdrop Romney will see an opening and might like to take the advantage and try to paint the current administration as a failure on the immigration front. He might also propose his solution for immigration. It is to be seen how DHS will handle the rush of applications (1.4 million to 2.1 million) and how fast it will process these applications. It appears that deferred action will be considered on case to case basis and so the processing is likely to be slow.
    September / October polls are likely to be more accurate on the impact of deferred action / SB1070 .

    I hope the republican house will do its oversight job and asks USCIS on how they are planning to handle the volume and make sure that EAD processing times are going to stay under 4 months.

    The Dems need to put adds out there for Latinos that if they want the president to complete the work on Immigration they need to get out to vote!! Get him the tools needed like a democratic congress. If the get out the vote effort works and the dems ride on Obama's tail they may have a chance, how big who knows but is worth a shot.

    There are reports that Rubio is not being considered for the VP spot....now we know why!!

    Marco Rubio Calls For Compassion Toward Undocumented Immigrant Parents In New Book

    "Many people who came here illegally are doing exactly what we would do if we lived in a country where we couldn't feed our families," he writes in An American Son, which was released Tuesday. "If my kids went to sleep hungry every night and my country didn't give me an opportunity to feed them, there isn't a law, no matter how restrictive, that would prevent me from coming here."

    GOP slowly coming out of the cave one by one - Speaker wants Comprehensive Immigration Reform

    http://thehill.com/homenews/house/233479-boehner-takes-careful-aim-at-obamas-deportation-policy

    He added that Obama has made no serious effort to enact immigration reform during his time in the White House. "If we're serious about dealing with the immigration problem, the first thing we ought to ask is 'where's the president's plan?' There is no plan," Boehner said. "The point is we've got to do a comprehensive immigration reform plan that makes sure it secures our borders, enforces our laws, and fixes the problem of the 12 million illegals that are here in our country."
