No, they don't. The questions in some of those polls were worded in such a way that it was made to appear that way. The results vary by ethnic group also.

That is the overall result. And certainly it does vary by ethnic group. But the electorate is composed of a number of ethnic groups.

It is a well known Pew survey. The choices were enforcement only, amnesty only or both. 63% went both or amnesty.

You obviously don't know Romney, he'll change his position after he gets the nomination.

Anything is possible with politicans. However, if the Hispanic vote holds the importance that it is claimed to have why wouldn't he hold a pro-amnesty, pro-Dream Act position now? I tend to think that he is being honest about his position on illegal immigration now. I just hope he doesn't cave into La Raza if he becomes our next president.

This Dreamie BS will end soon.
Excellent idea. Why should our kids have to compete with anchor babies and illegals brought here as children for slots in any school? [ IMHO, if the parents were illegals, the kids should get nothing ( including anchor baby status) ] Let them apply to private schools and pay the price or try to get scholarships.... Let's even fully eliminate going to state schools. Our own kids are having enough trouble paying for state schools.

And, if given the "easy in" of the Dream Act, these "newly minted illegals on the path to citizenship" will also compete with our kids for jobs. Doesn't anyone ever bring that up?

Unfortunately "anchor babies" are considered to be citizens by the mis-interpretation of the 14th amendment so there is nothing we can do right now about them attending our schools and getting other tax payer benefits. I hope birthright citizenship is revisted by the Supreme Court and soon.

Yes, I have often brought up that point in here that if the Dreamies and other illegals are granted legalization that they will be in direct competition for American jobs.
