    New Poll Reveals Minority Likely Voters Favor Enforcement Over Amnesty

    Thursday, February 25, 2010, 12:01 PM EST - posted on NumbersUSA

    A new poll conducted by Zogby finds that while many minority voters do support an amnesty, the majority favor enforcement efforts that encourage illegal aliens to go home. The full details of the poll can be found on the Center for Immigration Studies' website.
    http://cis.org/Minority-Views-Immigration

    The poll surveyed roughly 700 Hispanic, 400 African-American, and 400 Asian-American likely voters. It asked a series of questions regarding how to handle the current illegal alien population living in the United States, whether or not the United States needs to import more foreign labor, and whether current legal immigration numbers are too high or too low.

    The poll finds:

    In contrast to the leadership of many ethnic advocacy groups, most members of minority groups think immigration is too high.

    Hispanics: 56 percent said it is too high; 7 percent said too low; 14 percent just right.

    Asian-Americans: 57 percent said immigration is too high; 5 percent said too low; 18 percent just right.

    African-Americans: 68 percent said it is too high; 4 percent said too low; 14 percent just right.

    Most members of minority groups do not feel that illegal immigration is caused by limits on legal immigration as many ethnic advocacy groups argue; instead, members feel it's due to a lack of enforcement.

    Hispanics: Just 20 percent said illegal immigration was caused by not letting in enough legal immigrants; 61 percent said inadequate enforcement.

    Asian-Americans: 19 percent said not enough legal immigration; 69 percent said inadequate enforcement.

    African-Americans: 16 percent said not enough legal immigration; 70 percent said inadequate enforcement.

    Most members of minority groups feel that there are plenty of Americans available to fill unskilled jobs.

    Hispanics: 15 percent said legal immigration should be increased to fill unskilled jobs; 65 percent said there are plenty of Americans available to do unskilled jobs, employers just need to pay more.

    Asian-Americans: 19 percent said increase immigration; 65 percent said plenty of Americans are available.

    African-Americans: 6 percent said increase immigration; 81 percent said plenty of Americans are available.

    When asked to choose between enforcement that would cause illegal immigrants in the country to go home or offering them a pathway to citizenship with conditions, most members of minority groups choose enforcement.

    Hispanics: 52 percent support enforcement to encourage illegals to go home; 34 percent support conditional legalization.

    Asian-Americans: 57 percent support enforcement; 29 percent support conditional legalization.

    African-Americans: 50 percent support enforcement; 30 percent support conditional legalization.

    The media is filled with statements by illegals advocates, church officials, labor union officers, etc., all favoring amnesty. We'll have to work hard, to get this info into media outlets.

    It was in the column before yours went in under a different name. I looked and it was the same story.
    As to where it is, I have yet to figure out where they go as they are dropped off this page!
    The search function sucks, so I don't even try it anymore.

    Minority Advocates, Constituents Differ on Immigration
    Zogby Poll Finds Wide Support for Enforcement, Lower Numbers

    WASHINGTON, Feb. 25 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- While it is sometimes assumed that minorities, particularly Hispanics, favor increased immigration and legalization for illegal immigrants, a new Zogby survey finds that minority voters' views are more complex. The poll of Hispanic, Asian-American, and African-American likely voters finds some support for legalization. But overall each of these groups prefers enforcement and for illegal immigrants to return home. Moreover, significant majorities of all three groups think that the current level of immigration is too high. These views are in sharp contrast to the leaders of most ethnic advocacy organizations, who argue for increased immigration and legalization of illegal immigrants. The survey used neutral language, avoiding such terms as "amnesty," "illegal alien," or "undocumented."

    The poll is available online at http://cis.org/Minority-Views-Immigration The findings:

    In contrast to the leadership of many ethnic advocacy groups, most members of minority groups think immigration is too high.

    Hispanics: 56 percent said it is too high; 7 percent said too low; 14 percent just right.
    Asian-Americans: 57 percent said immigration is too high; 5 percent said too low; 18 percent just right.
    African-Americans: 68 percent said it is too high; 4 percent said too low; 14 percent just right.


    Most members of minority groups do not feel that illegal immigration is caused by limits on legal immigration as many ethnic advocacy groups argue; instead, members feel it's due to a lack of enforcement.

    Hispanics: Just 20 percent said illegal immigration was caused by not letting in enough legal immigrants; 61 percent said inadequate enforcement.
    Asian-Americans: 19 percent said not enough legal immigration; 69 percent said inadequate enforcement.
    African-Americans: 16 percent said not enough legal immigration; 70 percent said inadequate enforcement.


    Most members of minority groups feel that there are plenty of Americans available to fill unskilled jobs.

    Hispanics: 15 percent said legal immigration should be increased to fill unskilled jobs; 65 percent said there are plenty of Americans available to do unskilled jobs, employers just need to pay more.
    Asian-Americans: 19 percent said increase immigration; 65 percent said plenty of Americans are available.
    African-Americans: 6 percent said increase immigration; 81 percent said plenty of Americans are available.


    When asked to choose between enforcement that would cause illegal immigrants in the country to go home or offering them a pathway to citizenship with conditions, most members of minority groups choose enforcement.

    Hispanics: 52 percent support enforcement to encourage illegals to go home; 34 percent support conditional legalization.
    Asian-Americans: 57 percent support enforcement; 29 percent support conditional legalization.
    African-Americans: 50 percent support enforcement; 30 percent support conditional legalization.


    Discussion

    This survey of minority voters shows that when it comes to the issue of legalizing illegal immigrants, these voters disagree with the leadership of many ethnic advocacy groups. Most voters want the law enforced and illegal immigrants to return to their home countries. Overall they also feel that the current level of immigration is too high. The poll specifically asks voters to put aside the issue of legal status and focus only on the numbers. Even so, most think the level of immigration is too high and very few think it is too low. Not surprisingly, when it comes to allowing more unskilled workers into the country, most Hispanic, Asian-American, and African-American voters feel there are plenty of Americans here to do such work; employers just need to pay more.

    The overall findings of this poll show a significant divide between the perception that minority voters want legalization and increased legal immigration and the reality, which is that they want enforcement and less immigration. Like most Americans, minority voters are not anti-immigrant or anti-immigration per se. Moreover there is not unanimity on the immigration issue among or between groups. What the poll does show is that, like most Americans, Hispanic, Asian, and black voters want the law enforced and illegal immigrants to go home. Moreover, they think the overall level of immigration is too high. When some leaders of minority groups speak on immigration and argue for legalization, they are merely offering their own personal opinions, not necessarily those of voters in these communities.

    Methodology

    Zogby International was commissioned by the Center for Immigration Studies to conduct an online survey. A sampling of Zogby International's online panel, which is representative of the adult population of the United States, was invited to participate. Zogby maintains the panel and has used it for other surveys. Slight weights were added to region, party, age, race, religion, gender, and education to more accurately reflect the U.S. population. The survey included roughly 700 Hispanic, 400 African-American, and 400 Asian-American likely voters.

    The survey was conducted by Zogby from November 13 to 30, 2009. The margin of error for likely voters is +/- 0.5 percent. The margin of error for Hispanic likely voters is 3.7 percent; for African-Americans it is 4.7 percent; and for Asian-American voters it is 5.1 percent.

    The Center for Immigration Studies is an independent research institution that examines the impact of immigration on the United States.
