Illegal immigrants don't seem to be catching any of the blame for the state's financial troubles. Nearly two-thirds of California adults believe immigrants illegally in the country should be allowed to apply for work permits and stay. Another 72 percent, including 52 percent of Republicans, say illegal immigrants who have lived and worked in the country for at least two years should be given a chance to keep their jobs and stay in the United States.
CALIFORNIA / Residents say economy is bad, getting worse / It passes education, immigration as state's top concern, poll finds

I have always known the vast majority of Americans are not as hardline as some would suggest here. They support a realistic and common sense approach to this complicated issue.

First of all, the poll was done by the SF Chronicle. given their very liberal reputation, I wonder how they phrased the questions. Also, they put Obama a whopping 9 points ahead of McCain. National polls all show a much closer race. Proving California is not representative of the rest of the country.

Sounds like a realistic approach to the problem.

Seems CA is looking for a honest fix to the problem.

40 years ago Liberal meant liberty and justice for all IMHO

Today; 'Liberal' is a PC word for an elitist who is borderline UnAmerican----probably because most of the original goals (most of which were reasonable) have been achieved.

Seems to me that there is an inordinate amount of people in CA who endorse the exploitation of human beings. So long as we are all on the same page.

If you believe the economy will be bad, the economy will be bad. But if people are optimistic about the economy there's no recession. The news media generates fear by hitting the panic button on the economy.

Here in the trenches; I see many of the classic signs of a downturn, recession, whatever people wish to call it.

Housing prices are continuing to plunge here in Arizona along with many auto repair shops noticing a dramatic drop in business-----on the order of 20-40%.

Too; in the enclaves where there were lots of (probably) illegal immigrants-----since they are bugging out in droves, more and more businesses that used to cater to that clientele are shutting their doors. I see lots of 'for rent' signs now.

the poll was a small sampling and given the latino poplulation my guess is thats who answered, being the many of us where out working ,with a small amount of retired folks at home to get the call. wish they would do a real poll for all of ca. just more silly pro illegal immingrant non tax paying [mod cut].
