Someone on here posted the other day with a yahoo poll stating Americans weren't that concerned with illegal immigration. Here's a poll that doesn't quite match. All the pro-illegals out there should stop and think that if illegal immigration isn't a big deal and that us agianst it on this forum are upset about nothing, then why are so many Americans against it?

Hmm, majority of Americans elected Bush twice. What does that tell you? This country is actually run by the 5% of the population that actually have brains. I guess, it took the average American about 7 years to figure out that Bush was not that good of a president. Enough said.

So everyone is stupid except you, right? I think your straight jacket may be a little tight and cutting off circulation.

Bush was still a better choice than Gore or Kerry.

I don't agree where Bush stands on illegal immigration, and I'm sure Gore and Kerry wouldn't have been any better.

Every poll you see shows that most Americans are against illegal immigration, not to mention that Shamnesty was shut down by us, the citizens.

Unfortunately, the country is run by corporations, who want illegal immigration, and a bunch of elites who don't have to live with illegals or near them, since they're in their gated rich communities.

One proposal that has been discussed in Congress would allow illegal immigrants who have been living and working in the United States for a number of years, and who do not have a criminal record, to start on a path to citizenship by registering that they are in the country, paying a fine, getting fingerprinted, and learning English, among other requirements. Do you support or oppose this, or haven't you heard enough about it to say?"

60 Support allowing them to stay and 25 Oppose
Greatday this is from the link you provided. Off course most americans oppose illegal immigration BUT most support allowing illegal immigrants who have been here for a number of years, without criminal records to be legal. I didn't post it your poll proves my point.

Once again, you're wrong.

" A majority of Americans said they oppose amnesty for undocumented workers from other nations who are already residing in this nation, the survey shows. While 52% said there should be no amnesty, 32% said they would favor amnesty for such people. "
