Quote:
agree with President Obama’s decision to allow young people brought here illegally who meet certain criteria to avoid deportation.
71% Favor Work Permits for Young Illegal Immigrants in Certain Circumstances - Rasmussen Reports™

Once again, likely voters overwhelmingly support Obama's decision. You can view the wording of the poll below!

First off who is going to agree to call these "young people" lawbreakers with the questioned posed under 4* when the sentence plainly states that their parents brought them here illegally?

Second, under 5* illegal aliens cannot join our military.

Just as I suspected the way the questions are worded is the reason for the outcome.

You are in denial.

The majority of people out there are seeing that these young folks brought here illegally by their parents cannot go back to a country they have never known. It makes more sense to give them a future here., where they were raised.

You will soon come to the realization (hopefully) that the majority of the US aren't as angry as you.

It's weird. Obama just did this amnesty last Friday, and they've had time do conduct all these super-scientific and official opinion polls?

Yes, I'm sure all Americans really like having foreigners brought in to take their jobs.

They are kids brought here by their parents malamute. You've lost this battle, most Americans don't agree with you.

And that is pure bull because it didn't stop their parents from leaving their own country to live and mooch in one they had never known.

Americans study and live in Mexico and enjoy it -- and that is Americans who knew no Spanish before going there, and weren't brought up in that culture.

No, the results of this poll were what they were because of the way the questions were posed. Didn't you read the questions that I pointed out and my remarks about them?

Why can't they go back to their own country? Many of them came here in their teens so they did know their country. Besides, didn't their parents come here to the U.S. not knowing this country? Adults and children move all the time to different countries and they adapt. These so-called kids already know the language and cuture of their homelands. Adaptation should be easy.

You'll see just how angry many Americans are about this issue in November.

The ONLY good thing I can see in this is that now the illegals won and they can shut up. They can stop making demands.
