They're also very angry about the part that requires wages over poverty level because that will make it more difficult for the new citizens to get on welfare handouts.

Maybe but it'll have nothing to do with immigration. Hispanics didn't power Obama to re-election Blacks did combined with Whites not showing up. Immigration isn't even on the radar as a top issue for most Americans.
