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.

Anti-immigrant laws are code words for racist policies. Nobody complains about illegal immigration from Canada. It's always targeted towards Mexicans. Illegal immigrants work the jobs most American don't want to work.
ok how many illegal Canadians do you know compare to illegal Mexicans or even real aliens?Yeah shut up.

Cricket is a Viet Nam vet. I would hardly call him a coward. So you're not going to thrill all your fans and "divulge your personal firepower". That's too funny. I can sum it up in one word....nonexistent. OOPS, another ad hominum

Are you seriously trying to base this on the comments posted on Topix? LMFAO!!!

That was too good!

Wake up, you sad sheep. This site may appear to you to be a cess pool for the racist right but the reality is that it's mainly one or two sad souls burning out a couple of hundred proxies 24/7.

You're just as clueless as "the Mitt" who believed America was for him all the way up to the very end, where the Presidency had to be verbally pried from his reluctant non believing fingers like a toy from a whaling toddler.

I think it would serve you better to accept the reality that the election is a better indicator of who agrees with who. After all, Obama is your president, and there's not a da** thing you can do about it, jacka**. ;)

The path to legal immigration goes through the applicant's home country and to the USA with official documentation. The path includes paying for their crimes.

Not everyone deserves to be a US citizen.

The Dems want the illegals and their relatives because they will vote for whoever promises them welfare and amnesty! Now the Dems are going to make the Repubs foot the bills for all the gifts the illegals and welfare queens were promised for their votes!

Education Gap
THE REALITIES OF EDUCATION IN LATIN AMERICA
Without a high-level education, Latin American children will continue to
lack the skills necessary for entering the workforce and participating in
the increasingly competitive global economy.
a.. 50 million people in Latin America cannot read or write.
b.. Latin Americans receive an average of six years of schooling, compared
to nine-and-a-half years in the OECD (Organization of Economic Cooperation
and Development) countries.
c.. Nearly one-third of children in primary school in Latin America repeat
a grade. The additional cost to the region's education systems has been
estimated at $4 billion per year.
d.. Brazil, Chile, Mexico and Peru rank behind Uganda, Zambia, Botswana
and Burundi in the quality of their math and science education.
e.. In Mexico, only 13% of adults receive a high school diploma versus 87%
of American adults.
f.. Over 50% of Mexican and Brazilian 15-year old youth are functionally
illiterate and thus unable to compete in today's economy.
CONTRIBUTORS TO LATIN AMERICA'S EDUCATION CRISIS
1. HIGH DROP-OUT RATE THROUGHOUT LATIN AMERICA
The heart of the problem is the drop-out rate -- children living in poverty
are not staying in school.
a.. 92% of Latin American children begin primary school, but only 32%
continue on to secondary school (the U.S. equivalant of middle/high school).
Even fewer ultimately graduate.
b.. Approximately 40 million children and adolescents in Latin America
drop out of school to live or work on the streets each year.
c.. It is estimated that 95% of children have access to school in Brazil,
but only 59% of them finish the eighth grade.
d.. It is well established that school dropouts have worse outcomes,
including in terms of mental health status, than do those youth who stay in
school.
2. INEQUALITY IN LATIN AMERICA
Unequal societies are less efficient at converting growth into poverty
reduction. In Latin America, the education gap mirrors the income gap
between rich and poor.
a.. Levels of inequality in Latin America are the highest in the world --
at least one in three households and two in five people live below the
poverty line.
a.. 220 million Latin Americans (about 44% of the region's population)
live on less than $2 per day. Over half of them are children.
a.. In Brazil, children in the bottom income quartile complete an average
of four years of school versus over ten years completed by children in the
top income quartile.
3. LATIN AMERICA'S EDUCATION SPENDING
Despite increases in past years, spending on elementary education is still
relatively low throughout the region.
a.. Per capita spending on primary education in Latin America still
averages only 15% of U.S. levels.
a.. Latin American universities, which serve less than 10% of the
population, receive a disproportionate share of education dollars compared
to primary education.(In Brazil, public universities have only 2% of all
pupils, but receive 25% of all federal education funds.

This is so sad but what's more sad is knowing that the USA spends more money than South America does on education yet the USA still lags behind many other countries. Simply put, Americans are increasingly becoming as stupid as those you're currently making fun of.

Kinda ironic to know that your own grandkids will be as stupid as Jose the illegal gardner from Bolivia.

I think our (so called) Government is under the impression that, giving illegals a path to citizenship they will eventually pay their share of taxes. Not going to happen,,, they want Gov. assistance. They want free tuition, medical care,food-stamps, etc.,etc., etc. Who in their right mind wants to pay taxes? Like I said before, when it comes to money,,, Illegals are not stupid. They see what we pay.
