    Poll: Americans want fewer illegal immigrants in U.S.

    Poll: Americans want fewer illegal immigrants in U.S.
    Story Highlights
    3 in 10 say all illegal immigrants should be deported, CNN poll says

    Poll: Races differ on whether police should turn over illegal immigrants

    Blacks and whites oppose giving driver's licenses to illegal immigrants

    Telephone poll taken of 1,212 people and conducted Friday through Sunday

    Oct 17, 2007
    WASHINGTON (CNN) -- Most Americans would like there to be fewer illegal immigrants in the country, but only three in 10 say all of them should be deported, a CNN Opinion Research poll said Wednesday.

    Seven percent of those polled said they would like to see the number of illegal immigrants increase, 22 percent said they would like the number to remain the same, 16 percent want it decreased "a little" and 22 percent want it decreased "a lot," according to the poll of 1,212 adult Americans.

    Blacks and whites differed over whether the number of illegal immigrants should be increased, with 14 percent of African-Americans saying it should, versus 3 percent of whites.

    Nineteen percent of blacks said they thought all illegal immigrants should be removed from the country; 35 percent of whites said that.

    Blacks and whites overwhelmingly oppose state governments issuing driver's licenses to illegal immigrants, with 76 percent of blacks and 83 percent of whites taking that stance, the poll said.

    The races differed more on whether state and local police should turn over illegal immigrants they encounter, even if the immigrants have broken no state or local laws. In such cases, 45 percent of blacks and 61 percent of whites said they believe police should turn over illegal immigrants.

    Asked whether people who cannot read or write English should be allowed to vote, 54 percent of blacks said they should, versus 43 percent of whites.

    The Voting Rights Act of 1965 eliminated voting barriers such as a literacy test.

    On a related topic, the public appeared split on foreign trade -- 46 percent said they see trade more as an opportunity for economic growth, whereas 45 percent said they see it as a threat to the U.S. economy. Five percent said they see it as both an opportunity and a threat.

    The telephone poll was carried out Friday through Sunday and had a sampling error of plus-or-minus 3.5 percentage points.

    We don't have to deport the 12-38 million illegals. Law enforcement should focus resources on arresting and deporting the dangerous 600,000 "immigration fugitives." Enforcement of laws, ending of sanctuary polcies, cutting off of jobs and benefits will allow us to get a handle on the rest and this crisis over time. This illegal alien crisis didn't occur overnight, and doesn't have to be solved overnight.

    I simple don’t believe three out of ten...
    Eight out of ten of the men and women I talk to, agree that they all should go ...
    Two agree that the children are what most likely is the hardest issue they have in making them all leave ....


    As a father that is never understandable in the same since I don’t teach any child to break the law...

    This is the second poll I’ve read this month that disagrees totally with all other reports, included the opinions here.

    Deport them all and start over. If we need some workers here then get their darn DNA and fingerprints and know where they are at all times. What is so darn hard about this? Why is there such a fight over this? It is just common sense. Washington, the media and most of all the corupt corporations that abuse people for money think we are so dumb.
