NEW POLL CONTAINS GOOD NEWS FOR ANTIS AND PROS

Rate this Entry

A new poll from ABC News shows a seemingly contradictory result. Nearly six in ten support the controversial Arizona law SB1070. That will make the Tea Party crowd happy. But the buried headline is that almost the same number support legalizing illegally present immigrants.

Why the seemingly conflicting data? I think it shows Americans want action on reforming what they perceive is a broken immigration system. Americans are not anti-immigrant just because many support SB1070. They are upset that Congress and the President have refused to deal with immigration and are giving credit to states taking matters in to their own hands. Where the antis are off is assuming that Americans want to get rid of immigrants. They don't. They want to get rid of illegal immigration which is very different.

    "We're ICE and we're here to arrest you because President Obama sent the letter for a review, and we reviewed it and we denied it."

    Talk about lying through your teeth.

    Another effective expose by the famed Nina Bernstein!

    I agree people are frustrated with the broken system and therefore they support some action even if it's misguided, yet if the system were reformed and fixed then this types of laws like the AZ law would not even register in the radar.
