    Strong majorities of both Hispanics and Blacks think the government should do more to secure the border and give job-hungry Americans the chance to do jobs currently taken by illegal aliens, a new national poll of likely voters shows.

    Fully 63% of Hispanics and 57% of Blacks say the government is not doing enough to enforce U.S. immigration laws, according to the survey by The Polling Company, Inc. Likewise, 78% of Whites and 74% of all respondents want tighter border security.

    What's more, 71% of Blacks and 63% of Hispanics believe the government "has a responsibility" to protect job-hungry Americans "from competition with illegal immigrants." About three-quarters of Whites (77%) and all respondents (74%) agree that the government has a duty to protect Americans from job competition by illegal aliens.

    More than three times as many Hispanics and Blacks agree as disagree that "Americans who need work ought to have the opportunity to do the jobs that are currently done by illegal aliens":
    Hispanics: 73% Agree, 21% Disagree
    Blacks: 70% Agree, 22% Disagree
    Whites: 83% Agree, 12% Disagree
    Total: 81% Agree, 14% Disagree

    When Welfare benefits are added to the mix, a majority of Blacks (53%) support encouraging illegal aliens to go home by keeping them from getting jobs and Welfare benefits in the U.S., while Hispanics are about evenly split (48% oppose, 46% support). Whites more strongly support this tactic (71% vs. 24%), as do all respondents (67% to 27%).

    Three-quarters (75%) of all respondents say that, if U.S. businesses are having trouble finding workers, they should raise wages and improve work conditions - not seek more workers from other countries - a view shared by 86% of Blacks, 71% of Hispanics and 73% of Whites.

    Nationally, only 8% of all respondents say more immigrant workers should be allowed in the country to take these unfilled jobs.

    More Than A Thousand Stood Under Heat & Sun For Free Food In Miami

    August 22, 2014 5:54 PM
    Marybel Rodriguez

    MIAMI (CBSMiami) — More than a thousand locals lined up Friday morning for several hours under the scorching sun and heat in Miami for a box full of food.

    The event located at the Central Shopping Plaza at 3825 NW 7th Street started at 9:00 a.m.

    Participants got a box of free vegetables, meats and bread worth $100 until 12:00 p.m.–or until supplies lasted.

    Those who didn’t want to stand in line could wait in their car for the drive-thru portion of the event.

    Brittany Payne, a mother of three, stood in line for hours with her baby boy.

    “It’s something I have to do to feed my kids,” said Payne.

    Payne joined Miami residents lined up under the scorching sun and heat.

    “It’s a blessing because if it wasn’t for them I couldn’t eat today,” said Payne.


    (Source: CBS4)

    Farm Share partnered up with Commissioner Francis Suarez for the massive food giveaway in a neighborhood in need.

    “We are a city of tales; the ‘haves’ and ‘have nots.’ The city is growing tremendously but we also have a very poor city. The need is far greater than the supply that we have,” said Suarez.

    In the parking lot tents were set up and dozens of volunteers were on hand to help the residents fill their boxes with vegetables, chicken, juice and gift card to Winn-Dixie.

    Many of those lined up were elderly. One man was so overcome by heat, he had to be treated and transported.Others tried cooling themselves off with paper fans that were given out–some stood under the shade of their own umbrella.

    For all the others who managed to tough it out, they said it’s something they had to do.

    “Did you ever think you would be doing this,” asked CBS4’s Marybel Rodríguez to Julio Exposito who was waiting in line. “Not in my wildest dreams” said Exposito.

    Damien Cabrera who was also standing in line, showed what he had received.

    “So far I have vegetables, juices, chicken and a gift card,” said Cabrera.

    Those who were able to get food, will be taking it to a home where a box full of food makes a huge difference.

    “If it wasn’t for this would you have food in your refrigerator,” asked Rodriguez.

    “No, not right now,” said Payne.

    The distribution was on a first come first serve basis. By 11:15 a.m. the food had run out.

    For those who were still in line Commissioner Suarez spoke with them promising another giveaway soon.

    New Poll: Americans reject Obama's amnesty plan, favor protecting workers


    Newsletter

    Week of Aug 22

    This Issue: Political media abuzz on poll showing Americans of both parties prefer immigration policies that protect American workers, oppose Executive Amnesty

    Opposition to President Obama's threat of an Executive Amnesty for possibly millions of illegal aliens continued to heat up this week as many of you faxed, phoned, and visited district offices of your Members of Congress. Your efforts were further validated by a barrage of media stories reporting on a new blockbuster poll released by National pollster and GOP advisor Kellyanne Conway confirming that a majority of Americans of both political parties agree with you. In fact, Americans are unequivocal in their support for immigration policies that protect the American worker. This new poll constitutes a stunning rebuke of President Obama's plan to unilaterally amnesty illegal workers and expand immigration at a time when 18 million Americans can't find full-time jobs.
    Their (voters) sentiment is the inverse of the oft-repeated phrase, 'illegal immigrants do the jobs that Americans don't want to do,' saying instead that these workers should have a fair opportunity to do the jobs that illegal immigrants currently do

    -- Kellyanne Conway
    Yahoo, The Washington Times, Politico, and a host of other media outlets reported on the findings of the poll. Talk radio host Laura Ingraham sai d the poll "should stand as a beacon for Republicans seeking office in November." In fact, the findings of the poll should serve as a guide to Republicans AND Democrats seeking office. Many would surely be stunned to learn:
    74% of voters want the President to work with Congress while only 21% support his acting alone. This includes:

    • 56% of Democrats
    • 81% of Independents
    • 93% of Republicans

    77% believe U.S. born workers and legal immigrants already in the country should be given preference for jobs over new legal immigrants (89% agree over illegal immigrants).
    You can read more about the key findings of the poll on our website here or from the polling company here
    Many of you are already letting your Members of Congress know about this breakthrough poll as you visit the district offices of your elected officials. Scheduling a local office visit to your Senator(s) and U.S. Representative is one of the most effective things you can do to keep up opposition to President Obama's proposed amnesty. Melanie Oubre has posted a host of informat ion on your action board to make it as easy as possible for you to do this. CLICK HERE TO FIND A SENATE OFFICE IN YOUR TOWN. (list of offices is under "contact information") All materials we suggest you deliver to the offices can be found on your Action Board.
    While Americans are more focused and more opinionated on the issue of immigration than they have been in years (immigration now ranks in the top 3 of voters' concerns), President Obama continues to pursue his renegade approach to immigration, inviting corporate stakeholders and special interests to the White House to help plan one or more unilateral executive actions on immigration.
    Your actions this week (and throughout this past year) are giving voice to the majority of Americans of both political parties who revealed in this week's poll that they oppose the White House and Senate Majority who appear more concerned about the demands of Big Business and special interests than the unemployment situation of their fellow Americans and constituents. Thank you for giving voice to those who need it most.
