77% want illegals sent home, 81% say it's a serious issue



 By Paul Bedard  | July 28, 2014 | 9:21 am

 

A huge majority of Americans, 81 percent, believe the new immigration crisis of unaccompanied children streaming over the U.S.-Mexico border is serious, and almost as many want them gone -- some even if it's not safe to return, according to a new poll.

In an Economist/YouGov.com survey, however, the public isn't heartless in how they view the plight of the children, with 66 percent expressing sympathy for their situation that drove them north, where U.S. Border Control officers are catching the new arrivals for immigration processing.
 
But while there is an understanding among many Americans that some of the children are fleeing violence in El Salvador, Honduras and Guatemala, a majority, 57 percent, believe the illegal immigrants are coming to America because they believe “that the U.S. government is or will be granting amnesty to undocumented immigrant children,” said the new poll.

The poll is the latest to show that the nation doesn’t believe the president’s immigration policies are working. And it is proof that most want the flow of illegals into the United States slowed or shut off.

While 77 percent said they want the illegals returned, there are different degrees in how fast it should be done. For example, 10 percent said that Border Control should just return the children to the Mexican border. Another 32 percent said that the children should be returned home “regardless of conditions in their home country,” and 35 percent said they should be returned “only if” conditions are safe.

And for those allowed to stay temporarily, the public is split evenly on whether unaccompanied children should be housed in their state or in another state.

The poll also revealed that the crisis has become a drag on President Obama. “The approval rating of the president on immigration, like his approval ratings on many other issues, is negative. A majority disapproves, and only a third approve. But the evaluation of the president is even worse among those who would deport the child migrants as soon as possible: only 16 percent in that group approve of how Barack Obama is handling immigration. Those who want the children to stay until they can be returned safely approve of the president's performance,” said the poll analysis.

Is there a diplomatic way to remind blacks, that their guy in the WH is helping the very people, who out-compete for low skilled jobs?

Generally speaking, experienced employers will usually want the Hispanic, instead of the problematic entitled, affirmative action black, if they can make the choice.

Places like Watts, in South Central Lost Angeles, have changed from majority black, to majority Hispanic during my adult lifetime. IOW they even push the blacks out of their neighborhoods.

The GOP would do well to NOT demonize the Hispanic illegal immigrant children and teens, however much a few seem unable to avoid.

Focus should be 100 on the fact this crisis is of Obama's making. Blame him and his enabling democrats. GOP talking points should go out.

The elites, safely ensconsed in their gated abodes, won't have to live with the consequences, but will instead enjoy the benefit of continued inexpensive window-washing, child-care and gardening services, "off the books", wherever possible.
Liberalism isn't really about making the world a better place. It's about reassuring the elites that they are good people for wanting to rule over it.

Obamacare is the template. The political class has learned that they can even do things that are unpopular, and the backlash will be minimal.

There's no doubt the illegal children have raised Americans' awareness of the whole illegal problem.  Still, polls show overwhelming support for allowing those already here to be provided a path toward legalization.  And in even the latest Fox poll, favored disposition of the children runs almost 50-50.  Both sides are hoping to use this in the fall, and while Obama isn't generating any enthusiasm, Republicans shouldn't assume an overly aggressive anti-immigrant stance will carry them.
It's the Supreme Court nominations!
