    Temporary Work Visas Endorsed by 72% in U.S.

    Angus Reid Global Scan : Polls & Research
    Temporary Work Visas Endorsed by 72% in U.S.
    April 6, 2006

    (Angus Reid Global Scan) – Many adults in the United States would welcome a special program to allow illegal immigrants to work lawfully in their country, according to a poll by SRBI Public Affairs published in Time. 72 per cent of respondents support the concept of temporary work visas.

    In January 2004, U.S. president George W. Bush tabled his proposal for a major overhaul of the U.S. immigration system. The plan includes a "temporary worker program" that would grant legal status to undocumented workers, who would pay taxes, be required to return to their home country after three years, and receive no special preference if they decide to apply for permanent citizenship.

    Last month, the Pew Hispanic Center calculated the number of undocumented immigrants in the United States at somewhere between 11.5 million to 12 million. More than 70 per cent of respondents believe illegal immigrants should be allowed to register as guest workers, and to seek citizenship if they learn English, have a job and pay taxes. Also, a majority supports granting temporary visas on a seasonal basis, and providing and enforcing penalties for employers convicted of hiring illegal immigrants.

    In December 2005, the House of Representatives passed a bill that seeks to make it a felony to be in the U.S. illegally or to help an undocumented person stay in the country. The proposal also calls for the construction of a new 1,100 kilometre fence on the U.S.-Mexico border. 62 per cent of respondents favour stopping illegal immigrants from entering the U.S. by taking whatever steps necessary to guard the border, and 47 per cent back deporting all illegal immigrants.

    Yesterday, Bush urged lawmakers to deal with the issue without delay, saying, "This is a vital debate. I thank the members who are working hard to get a bill done. I strongly urge them to come to a conclusion as quickly as possible and pass a comprehensive bill."

    again 1,000 adults (mostly either wealthy or young ill look into that). is no way to gauge the ideas of 300,000,000. These studies are commonly done to get a certain result via "quoating". For instance they will have a limit on those who would disagree with the way they want the study to skew and no limit on those who would say what they want.

    Still waiting for a comprehensive Gallup poll.

    The poll is bogus, they have to lie to justify what it is they are doing, which is a conspriacy.
