Shame on the Federal government for letting foreign nationals invade our nation. They are subjects of a foreign government, without any respect for our laws. They have no commonality with the language and customs of the American people. They have no allegiance to the people of the United States of America, nor respect for their persons and property. And the American people are fools for allowing them in, letting them siphon off prodigious benefits. Americans have thus surrendered their country and deprived their posterity, who will become strangers in their own land.

Failure to prosecute, punish and deter these invaders is one of the greatest acts of treason to the American people by a bankrupted, venal government filled with lying predators and scoundrels.

They asked 4 flavors of a question
Simple would have been a single yes/no question.

What if they called them illegal aliens in the poll instead, would the result be different? What if they educated Americans who were asked the question in the poll about how the illegals used false identity to drive and work, how would the answers to the poll be different?

My kids will be okay, since they educated themselves and have careers that cannot simply be handed over to some immigrant who doesn't have the skills nor the language skills to fill their positions.

The low skilled obamatrons will suffer greatly under the weight of this decision.

You earned the coming hardships.

Yep,

The existing batch of immigrants legally doing yard work, etc. are going to take the hit. But hey, they want to expand immigration, go for it.

That 60 percent number might include people like me: I can go with an amnesty for illegal alien kids who can PROVE they've been living in the US below the age of 14 AND have NEVER had any dealings with the cops for anything, even jaywalking.

But nothing like that is on the table. So you said "yes" based on your opinion of what amnesty "should" be like ?

The low skilled in 2013 were not going to fare well, with or w/o immigrants. I have no kids, but I am delighted my nephews,nieces, godchildren, friend's kids, and cousins also educated themselves well.
