Im guessing alot of the people with nice 50k+ Jobs with good insurance,etc..
Could care less about Illegal Immigration.
I have noticed alot of people who live in the suburbs and are pretty comfortable..
Dont really care about much of anything until it hits home.

Not true. There are plenty of us who care and are doing all we can to get rid of illegal aliens. This isn't just about low wage jobs, it's about keeping our society safe from diseases that have previously been eradicated, its about: preservation of American culture, our language ENGLISH, our way of life, having our laws upheld, our country respected, living in a civilized society, the sovereignty of America and what we as Americans MUST do to ensure the progress our future generations.

I'm with you. I'd say the percentage is high in all groups, except the libs and DC.

Just an Observation i had made from talking to folks.
I would say the working class is probably more against illegal Immigration.
Followed by the middle class and i doubt the uber-rich could care less.

Agreed. Because there are at least 20-30 million illegal aliens in this country, I doubt that few if any people are still asleep or unaware. I'm sure that there are millionaires and billionaires who are not affected or are bleeding heart liberals, but at the end of the day, if you love this country and remember how much better it was even as late as 10 years ago, then you have been negatively impacted and should care.

Yeah, I'm sure the working class that has day workers taking their jobs would be 100%.

Agreed. There are MANY professionals earning six-figures who vehemently oppose illegal immigration, and are actively involved in fighting this scourge. It's the "wealthy" millionaires and billionaires living in their secluded mansions who tend not to be concerned. After all, most of them have enough money to live off for the remainder of their lives, and their descendents.

That and more likely than not they employ them as maids, nanny's, housekeepers, and gardners. I'd even go so far as to say they are part of the problem as well.
