POLL: AMERICANS NO LONGER ALL THAT CONCERNED ABOUT IMMIGRATION
Rasmussen Reports indicates in their latest poll that only 5% of Americans list immigration reform as a top priority, a number that is consistent with historical numbers but is much reduced from the last few years when anti-immigration activists whipped up a wave of nativism not seen in many years in the US. One of the reasons immigration measures big and small have not succeeded in recent years is because the entire issue of immigration has been perceived as radioactive and no one wanted to take on the crazies. As it becomes clear that dealing with immigration issues isn't something that is going to sway many voters one way or the other, it actually might be easier to get down to dealing with bread and butter fixes to problem areas in the system.
