ANSWERS:

(1) In former years, "D".....
Today....."A"

(2) "C"....The government's inaction in this matter is angering Americans while
misleading illegals

(3) "A, B, C, and D"....additionally, "E" (other)...the toleration of widespread lawbreaking is eroding the credibility of the 'societal leaders' who tolerate it...they're saying, in effect, 'I KNOW I swore I'd uphold the law...but I changed my mind'....

(4) "B"...Illegal imimgration is one of several 'enablers' being used by those intent on destroying the middle class...and its a push toward a ruthless "two--layer society" of "rich vs poor". Illegal immigration is 'helping' this "new" economy, by helping to destroy the 'old' (middle class) one

(5) Not relevant..

(6) "A, B, C, and D".

(7) "C and F"

(8) "B"

(9) NONE of these choices. THe entire CONCEPT of immigration needs to be shifted to giving a big priority to what AMERICA NEEDS, instead of debating the various ways America "must" accomodate foreigners. If we NEED them, and if we can ACCOMODATE them, fine....if NOT, then it isn't our "job" to find ways to "squeeze them in".

(10) In former years...definitely both "A" and "D". Increasingly, today, "B". In my personal experience, "C" is mostly not true, or is greatly exaggerated.

(11) Unincorporated land (no city). Southern California.

(12) "E"

(13) "F"..human

(14) "F"...
