So the fact that comments from average readers are so heavily tilted against illegal immigration makes me question the accuracy of polls that always say a majority of Americans are in favor of amnesty.
The polls are worded so they get the answers they want. For example, a question gets phrased something like this: "Should we kick in doors and round up illegal aliens or should we give them amnesty?" Or, they make a false claim like this -- "It will cost 3 trillion to round up and deport all the illegal aliens but if we amnesty them all, it will cost 2 trillion. In light of that, do you support amnesty?"

So...low information voters, who are easily manipulated, will answer "yes" to amnesty on both counts. They are too ignorant to know that illegals will self-deport if they can't find work, their anchor babies won't get automatic citizenship and they can't collect welfare.

Prisons are full of people removed from their kids for breaking the law. It's what happens.

Exactly! American moms and dads are sent to prison all the time for their offenses. Where's the sob stories for them and their kids? I have no sympathy for lawbreakers who just happen to have kids no matter what their status is in this country.

I agree. They should have thought of the risk to their kids before breaking the law.

Someone in my town was trying to sell us on the fact that these illegals are really just the victims of human traffickers.

Huh?

And that person likely believed what they were saying. The dumbing down of America.
