Georgia immigrationJust 16 percent of likely U.S. Voters think the U.S. government is too aggressive in deporting those who are in the country illegally. A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 62 percent believe the government is not aggressive enough in deporting these illegal immigrants, up from 52 percent a year ago and 56 percent in November. Fifteen percent feel the current number of deportations is about right

Thirty-two percent believe illegal immigrants who have American-born children should be exempt from deportation, an element of Obama’s plan, but 51 percent now disagree. In November, voters were much more closely divided: 38 percent said they should be exempt from deportation, and only 42 percent disagreed. Seventeen percent remain undecided.

But then most voters continue to feel that a child born to an illegal immigrant mother in the United States should not automatically become a U.S. citizen, as is now the case.

Thirty-eight percent favor the current policy of automatic citizenship for these children. Opposition has ranged from 51 percent to 65 percent in surveys since April 2006. Support has been in the 28 percent to 41 percent range in that same period.

    Let’s keep it simple, any human being anywhere in the confines of the United States of America without LEGAL status needs to be removed…..PERIOD! Then, shut down the border’s and BUILD THE DAMN WALL! When all the above is complete, then we can look at helping people come to our Nation the LEGAL HONEST AND LAWFUL WAY!
    I do realize this will never happen because our Nation is driven by STUPIDITY AT EVERY LEVEL!

    I don’t trust polls, they only prove misunderstanding of the problem. How you state a question will drastic affect the answer. The ACA is a prime example of this. If asked if they support Obamacare they say no but asked if they support the law with out identifying it as Obamacare and they support it. The word amnesty is used in most right wing augments even though what the President is doing is not amnesty but delayed action. Most thinking people know we need a new immigration law that takes into account the needs of business and fairness to the American people.
