Majority Supports Path to Citizenship; Greater Division on Other Social Issues

Full story: ABC News

Most Americans support a path to citizenship for illegal immigrants, an issue that may be high on the agenda of newly re-elected President Obama and the 113th Congress, given the increased importance of nonwhites - including Hispanic voters - in the nation's political equation.

Open Letter to John Gibson,Shawn Hannity,John Boehner,Luis V. Gutierrez & Lindsey Graham

11/9/2012

The gentleman I've listed above are advocating amnesty for the 12-20 million (wag) illegal aliens in our country . I strongly disagree with their position for the following reasons.

In 1986 President Reagan signed off on a bill granting amnesty to 1 1/2- 2 Million illegal aliens, today I wonder how many more of their family members are here now because of the Chain Immigration policy in place?

In the past 26 years since President Reagan signed that bill, because of politicians like Congressman John Boehner , Luis V. Gutierrez and Senator Lindsey Graham who have none nothing to help control our borders except to stick their finger in the dike to appease the voters at home,12-20 Million more illegal aliens (wag) have entered our country and now because the finger caper didn't work their solution to the problem is amnesty.

The message that people like Sean Hannity , John Boehner , Luis V. Gutierrez & Lindsey Graham are sending to immigrants around the world is that if you can enter our country illegally without getting caught and hide out for another 26 years, then sooner or later another amnesty will be granted.

Case in point, a large number of American Hispanic voters including Chicago Congressman Luis V Gutierrez have again rally their support for amnesty, and are using their vote to blackmail the Democrats into granting it. My question is what are those Hispanic Americans basing their support on?

My answer is it's based on the fact that a large number of the illegal aliens are also Hispanics which would appear to make their support based on race.( Google some of Chicago Congressman Luis V Gutierrez's comments on the subject).

Now if I say I don't support amnesty because it's wrong then those same people yell "Racist".

We currently have no control of immigration into our country, yet continue to allow in around 900,000 legal immigrations a year, and now John Gibson,Shawn Hannity,John Boehner,Luis V. Gutierrez & Lindsey Graham want to add 12-20 Million illegal aliens to our population which is now around 315 Million.

My question to John Gibson, Sean Hannity , John Boehner , Luis V. Gutierrez & Lindsey Graham that support amnesty is how many more immigrants legal & illegal entering our country will make you happy?

My closing comment is that violating our immigration laws should not be rewarded with American Citizenship, it's worth more than that! Just because you can walk across our borders or swim / wade across a river doesn't give someone a place at the head of the line here. The line for those people starts inside the border of their own country.

To compound the problem, under the 14 Amendment we have around 300,00 new American Citizens a year born in our country to just illegal Hispanic women, and yes John,Shawn , John B.,Luis & Lindsey a lot of them walk or swim/ wade across our border to have those babies.

Honest to God, these Politicians must be fired, they should all be forced to go to Arizona and see the mess's their. They should all be forced to talk to a victim of one of these criminal. They should be forced to review the death and mayhem caused by illegal immigration before they make one more statement in agreement with amnesty to these people.Same with the Media. The]re so busy spending our money, they simply do not see what happening in our community's. WTF

I read an article that said a majority of Americans approve of amnesty for the 12-20 million illegal aliens.

My question is why would Americans want to increase the voting block of Hispanic voters by 12-20 Million?

And why would anyone want to grant amnesty to 12-20 Million illegal aliens that ignored our immigration laws?

It cheapens our American Citizenship and is a slap in the face to the immigrants in other countries waiting to enter here the legal way!

Immigrant group balks at Obama reform wording

By Liz Goodwin, Yahoo! News |

An advocacy group for young immigrants expressed concern Wednesday after President Barack Obama, at his first press conference in months, said he would support "a pathway for legal status" for those living in the country illegally.

That Obama used the phrase "legal status" instead of "citizenship" raised alarm bells for some deep in the weeds of immigration advocacy, since some more conservative immigration reformers think the estimated 11 million people living in the country illegally should be given legal status but not the opportunity to become citizens.

"He looked like he sidestepped around saying 'citizenship,'" said Marisol Valero, spokeswoman for United We Dream, a group that represents young people who were brought to the country illegally as children and want the opportunity to become citizens. "We are worried that the president and other leaders will not be supporting a path to citizenship for everyone."
