    Obama Tanks On Immigration Poll

    12:19 PM 02/10/2015
    Neil Munro

    President Barack Obama gets his worst ratings for his immigration policies, according to a new poll by the Associated Press.

    But that political disadvantage is offset by the publicís deep skepticism about the GOPís divided stance on immigration.

    Obama gets 29 percent strong approval and 46 percent strong disapproval for his immigration-boosting policies, such as his November amnesty announcement.

    But the GOP leadership is trusted to do a better job on immigration by only 27 percent of the 1,045 adults who responded to the APís survey, which was conducted from Jan. 29 to Feb. 2.

    That final result means that the GOPís congressional leaders are trusted to handle immigration only by about half of the people who strongly oppose Obamaís high-immigration policies.

    That will be a problem for the GOP in 2016, when the issue of mass immigration is expected to play a large role in the votersí debate over the nationís decades-long problem of shrinking middle-class wages and growing wealth divides.

    Moreover, the GOPís 27 percent rating on immigration is 5 points below the Democratic Partyís 32 percent trust.

    Another 27 percent of poll respondents said they trust neither party. Thirteen percent said they trust both parties equally.

    The GOP isnít trusted, partly because some of its business-backed establishment wing favors amnesty because it simultaneously increases the flow of cheap labor and of customers whose income is boosted by government aid.

    Several top GOP leaders have said they want to pass bills that would import hundreds of thousands of lower-wage workers for food-sector jobs, for blue-collar jobs and for jobs sought by young U.S. professionals, such as therapists, teachers, accountants and pharmacists.

    GOP leaders will pass an huge amnesty of illegals if Democrats support their goals of importing workers for companies, say critics. So far, GOP leaders havenít tried to close that deal because several recent polls show almost 90 percent of their GOP base opposes the amnesty-for-foreign-workers deal.

    The GOPís division helps explain why top party leaders havenít yet mounted a coordinated and full-throated media campaign against Obamaís November amnesty, which would provide work permit to 5 million illegals.

    In contrast, despite the danger to their 2016 candidates, Democratic leaders have united their Senate caucus to block annual funding for the Department of Homeland Security until the GOP agrees to let Obama implement his unpopular amnesty.

    The Democrats are also using their media allies to blame the GOP for the impending funding problem, which will happen Feb, 27.

    Few media reports explain the scale of Obamaís immigration policy, or the many polls that underline, showcase and highlight the publicís understated hostility to mass immigration.

    Immigration is a top priority for voters, the AP shows. Fifty-two percent said immigration is a very important or extremely important issue. The economy was judged is similarly important to 88 percent of respondents, and unemployment was judged similarly important by 66 percent of respondents.

    Obamaís rating on immigration is worse than his rating on health care.

    Overall, 55 disapprove of his healthcare policies, while 43 percent approve.

    That information is critical for GOP leaders eyeing the 2016 election. They need to find issues that will spur turnout against Obama.

    The publicís rating of Obamaís immigration policies have changed little since December 2013. Back then, the GOP was trusted by 23 percent of respondents, and the Democrats were trusted by 27 percent. Back then, 30 percent of respondents said they trusted neither party.

    Overall, Obamaís immigration policies win him 42 percent combined strong and weak support, and 56 percent combined strong and weak opposition.

    Thatís down slightly from last summer, when Obama welcomed 130,000 Central Americans who came across the Texas border. Obama repatriated only a few hundred of the adult, juvenile and child migrants allow the vast majority to fie for asylum and to get work permits.

    The influx may spike again this Spring, partly because Obama is offering an effective amnesty to all 12 million illegal migrants in the United States, and work permits to roughly 5 million of those migrants.

    Also, opposition to Obamaís immigration policies is stronger among voters. For example, an AP poll of likely voters in late October showed his immigration policies had 52 strong disapproval and 21 percent strong support among likely voters.

    The poll gives Obama an overall rating of 47 percent, and disapproval of 52 percent.

    In November 2014, one in every five U.S. jobs was held by a foreign-born worker, up from one-in-six jobs in January 2010, according to federal data highlighted by the Center for Immigration Studies.

    Each year, 4 million young Americans begin competing for jobs against at least 10 million unemployed Americans, 2 million annual new immigrants and a resident pool of roughly 2 million guest workers.

    This is an absolute crisis for our citizens. This is an outrage beyond imagine. This is an historic betrayal by a government of its own citizens that has never happened anywhere else in the world in our planet's history. This is called "eating your own" and is nothing but a modern-day refined version of sociopathic barbarism.

    Listen up, Republicans, remember Nancy Reagan and her "Just Say No" campaign for kids to stay away from drugs? Apply it here and now to our political officials and candidates on the issue of immigration. Any candidate who says even one positive word about the impact of immigration on the United States is not who we want running our government affairs. Not one positive word, because in the last 100 years, there hasn't been a net positive result of any kind for any American from these levels of immigration, legal or illegal. Furthermore, if they aren't only blasting away at the ravages and horrors of illegal immigration, but the dire economic consequences of excess immigration as well, then they are not fit to serve the people of the United States and I guarantee you have no intention of doing so.

    We need a 10 year Congressional moratorium on all new immigration and we need it now. We need Steve King's bill passed immediately to stop the travesty of automatic birthright citizenship for children of illegal aliens. We need Marsha Blackburn's bill that acknowledges and authorizes states rights to enforce US immigration law. We need to cut all welfare benefits for illegal aliens including their children and remove them from the country if they don't leave voluntarily. We need to pass the FairTax and abolish the IRS whose stupidity has escalated this problem with handing out tax credits to illegal aliens. You can't solve this illegal immigration problem with the federal taxing authority sending them checks for thousands of dollars every year in tax credits for jobs they stole from Americans and children that shouldn't even be here in the first place and children that aren't even here at all but back in their home country.

    The IRS has become one of the key conspirators responsible for this disaster. The IRS is supposed to be our fiscal agent, but instead it's become on its own entirely, a fiscal enemy of the people of the United States. STOP THIS MADNESS. Pass the FairTax, HR 25 in the US House of Representatives and S 155 in the US Senate and bid all these traitors from the tax industry to the IRS and the politicians behind them a pink slip "farewell" and kick their butts to the curb.
