Poll: Majority Supports Path to Citizenship for Illegal Immigrants

Nov 14, 2012 Full story: KVOR-AM Colorado Springs 1,475

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.

For every job created in the past year, 75 people went on food stamps- gee, that's real progress. In light of this, WHY do we want more welfare recipients? WHY do we want to tqke qwqy the incentives for the average American to better himself and his work ethic if taxes to support this massive load of freeloaders are the result? Obamacare is going to drain the American way of life to support those who refuse to earn their way. I'm going to research whether or not I can get on this gravy train...no, wait...I have a modocum of integrity.

Obviously you have no idea of what a Nazi is. You need to spend more time in school and less time memorizing barroom rhetoric.

Did you think the Recession that got underway as a result of the collapse of a major component of the economy (Housing) coupled with TWO unfunded wars and the abject failure of Congress to pass a budget leading to a lowered credit rating by S&P was going to be ONE BIG BOOM without unfolding and reverberating for years? Seriously? Did you?

Do you understand how recessions work and jobs are lost as the fallout unfolds? What the h*ll did you want this country to do with all of the folks whose jobs were lost to 1) outsourcing (please see the people of Cleveland and Detroit for further details) and 2) Recession. We had Wall Street brokers walking the streets with signs looking for work - any kind of work. So, government did what they have endeavored to do for decades - use a social safety net to prevent hunger.

When the self-centered self-absorbed elite get off their azzes and start creating jobs here, not offshore for higher profits, more jobs will emerge and more people will leave the welfare rolls.

We are underway (about midway) on the greatest economic hit to this nation since The Great Depression. That's really the only economic situation with which we can compare.

Anybody who thinks that Barack Obama could have dug us out of the hole in four years is a fool. Economists have TRIED valiantly to explain, and some of you STILL dont get it. Could he have done a better job? Probably. Did he have ANY cooperation? Oh, h*ll no, and you know it.

Dummy, there are more people than available jobs right now. The fools who run the economy and the immigration department should be on the hook for importing too many people and allowing too many jobs to go overseas

Business writing its' own legislation and Congress selling out to their interests. It's been working that way for thirty years now.

It's hard to get the cow back into the barn, especially when greed drives the bus. They got a big taste of the rewards with NAFTA, and they never looked back. How do you reverse globalization when we've become so interdependent across the globe? As a result, economic recovery is a much slower process. We used to manufacture our way out of recessions - not so much this time, but the President's jobs bill can help - IF Congress can get it together to pass it and incentivize business to repatriate production and discourage outsourcing.

Little online spats like yours must occur quite often. I wonder how many people have actually followed through and met in person to settle things? I suppose it would be a greater possibility on facebook or instances where real names and addresses are used but other than that I doubt it happens at all.

Congress can't seem to do much more than vote themselves raises and NOT interfere with the Exectutive office's giving away of benefits. Here is another result of bypassing Congress: http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Government/2012/...

I agree with what you say and the causes of them- my point is that we were promised hope and change, but hope is dwindling and change has only been for the worse. I'd like ONE change that we were promised to occur. One. Not one that only satisfies the undeserving, but one that satisfies the backbone of the American economy- the working class- FIRST. Us. We, the people. Every SOB in Congress needs to be fired, except Rand Paul. Yeah, I said that. Further, I would like YOU to be up there as well. I like the conviction and slant you give things, though your choice of leader isn't to my liking (but we already know that). We really don't need economists to explain anything more, we need the Exectutive Office to listen to them and to follow their ideas to turn things around. What do we get instead, more cash printed. More "Green Energy" money that goes into CEOs' pockets. More money spent in other coutries (like Egypt) that does America no good.The list goes on and on, but the "blame" list is pretty darned short. One name on it, not two.

I don't click on Breitbart anymore. I know exactly what their agenda is, and they provide a wealth of disinformation. Now, google whatever it was they wrote about and see if you can come up with other stories that refute their perspective or put it in context. Seriously, stay off Breitbart. Try Reuters, CBS, ABC, The major news sources including the Wall Street Journal, Bloomberg News and the CBO reports site. The Tax Policy Center is another good source. Breitbart? Fringer site. I'll even read and consider a Heritage Foundation report, but not The Conservative Treehouse, Before It's News, and usually not FOX. You're welcome to cross MSNBC off your list. I admit their liberal slant. The Washington Post does a good job of presenting both sides, and The Economist is generally conservative as you would expect of Economists.

CBS, ABC, MSNBC, BLOOMBERG etc are all siding with the kenyan. While FOXNEWS shows stories related to the government, CNN and the like are showing dog shows and other distractions to give the webspinners in DC time to come up with bogus explanations and excuses. Even NPR is in the gummint's pocket. I used to listen to them often, believing they were unbiased but no more. Brett is not one I go to as a rule, but only when he makes sense or brings up a plausible point. Bloomberg disgusts me. The stories that come up on MSNBC and their bias is reflected in HLN and cnbc as well. You want me to accept the fabrications of Wolfe Blitzer or Anderson Cooper? Give me Judge Napolitano or the venerable Charles Krauthammer any day.

How about you just cut it out calling your President a Kenyan? That works for me. It's a disgusting level of disrespect for the office.

In case it hasn't yet come to your attention, Barack Obama released his long form birth certificate for media scrutiny in March of 2011. Only the most brain damaged individuals are still stuck on stupid with the birther nonsense. The rest of the country by a substantial majority got over it and wised up about the facts. What's Donald Trump up to these days? Not much in demand, is he?

You may recall that when Obama was running for President, we had not yet had a total collapse of the housing market. Do you appreciate how dire our circumstances were when he was finally sworn in? We elected a young senator with minimal experience and shoved him directly into the greatest crisis we had experienced since the Great Depression. The fact that we are still standing is testament to the fact he has gotten up to speed in record time. Yes, he relied too much on business advice, but I understand that as well. They drive the engine, and he wanted to provide them all the support they requested to do the job. Corporations under Obama have had the highest profits since the 1960's. Not bad.

Not participating in the recovery are American workers. Wages have continued to stagnate while corporate CEO's are receiving compensation at about 467 times what it was 20 years ago. If workers wonder where the money went? Well, they can look in that direction and essentially look at how the financial markets are driving the bus. Corporate welfare: 3X social welfare outlay, and most of the beneficiaries are already profitable.

Let's look at what it really is: a plutocracy headed toward oligarchy. So, Obama is re-elected promising to stem the blood flow away from the middle class. But, in actuality, there's no way to do that. We're all going to bleed more. Want change? Change Congress by actually doing the hard work of researching who owns your representative by how he/she votes. Then, do everything in your power to see that everybody you know knows. Support third party candidates. Tell the Tea Party to get a new program. They sold out to bigots and the Koch brothers. Too bad.

I will never believe in a birth certificate that took years to surface (quality counterfeit money also goes through a long process), and DT has his hands full, theses days. Also, judging by the one that got hired to do a job, I'm again not in the "majority". Judging by recent relations, some of the voting is ALSO suspect. I will forgive the "brain damaged" reference because it was you who penned it.
