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.

I highly doubt majority support any pathway to citizenship for illegals. Maybe if our economy was booming ,but not in this "Obama's world" of redistribution by taxing those who work.

Don't worry when Obama finishes turning this country into one big GHETTO no one will want to come here. They will all run back to their own countries it will soon not be worth coming here. Thanks to the ass kissing liberals and fool democrats who want hand outs. Oh they will soon be standing in line just like a third world country waiting for that bag of rice. They will look in the mirror if they have one and say did I do that. OMG I thought we were one big happy socialist family.

Not all of them do.

Some think he's a centrist and not really on their side.

What's your point in making blanket statements when the fact is they don't always apply?

Amnesty came once so far and it did under a Republican president, if you recall.

That for sure didn't work.
So Obama carried the Hispanic vote based on what?

Yes a Republican President signed it based on a lie a "Democrat" told!

"This amnesty will give citizenship to only 1.1 to 1.3 million illegal aliens. We will secure the borders henceforth. We will never again bring forward another amnesty bill like this."

If you're wanting to blame the '86 amnesty on Ted Kennedy, then that doesn't say much about Reagan, does it? Reagan was the POTUS and the one holding the bus tickets in the matter. He signed it, he was in charge, so he goes down in history as the enactor and the fall guy.

Spin it anyway you want, the fact is that amnesty did little to deter the never ending flow of illegals, because enforcement measures were never really instituted. There was no beefing up of the border. This is was Reagan's fault. He could of applied pressure through the Attorney General of that time, and given the proper directives, but he didn't. He failed in that matter.

I believe the hispanics gave Obama the vote, because right wing pundits and the Romney campaign continued to insult them in ways similar to that flat 47% remark, where insults were directed at those who once produced and were now either retired or incapacitated. How can you expect anyone to pull the lever for you, if you're insulting them? That's why he lost.

You don't even know me, so STFU! If you're looking for "peace", this forum isn't the place. This forum is defined by chaos. That's what makes it fun, IMO. Your problem is that you don't know how to effectively rebut or argue. It takes depth perception and an analytic capacity/ability that you apparently don't have.

You Sir Are not about effectively debating the topic at hand, you are about verbally insulting people who disagree with you. Anyone who has read your comments for the past week will see clearly what I am saying is truth. You are a cyber bully.

Steven Camarota, the Center's Director of Research, notes, "There is simply no question immigration makes for a much larger and more densely settled country, but it is not a cure for an aging society."

Among the findings:

If net immigration (difference between those coming and going) unfolds as the Census Bureau estimated in the last set of projections, the nation's population will increase from 309 million in 2010 to 436 million in 2050 a 127 million (41 percent) increase.
The projected increase of 127 million is larger than the combined populations of the U.K. and France.
By itself future immigration will account for 96 million (75 percent) of future population growth.
The immigrant (legal and illegal) share of the population will reach one in six U.S. residents by 2030, a new record, and nearly one in five residents by 2050.
The Center for Immigration Studies, as well as other researchers, has found that immigration levels have fallen somewhat in recent years. While there is no way to know if the level will remain lower, this change can be incorporated into these projections:
A one-third reduction in the Census Bureau's level of net immigration over the next four decades (2010-2050) produces a total U.S. population of 404 million in 2050 a 95 million increase over 2010.
Even if immigration is half what the Census Bureau expects, the population will still grow 79 million by 2050, with immigration accounting for 61 percent of population growth.
The underlying level of immigration is so high, even assuming a substantial reduction would still add tens of millions of new residents to the U.S. population and account for most of the population growth.
Consistent with prior research, the projections show immigration only slightly increases the working-age (18 to 65) share of the population. Assuming the Census Bureau's immigration level, 58 percent of the population will be of working-age in 2050, compared to 57 percent if there is no immigration.
Raising the retirement age by one year would have a larger positive impact on the working-age share over the next 40 years then would the Census Bureau's projected level of net immigration (68 million).
While immigrants tend to arrive relatively young and have higher fertility than natives, immigrants age just like everyone else, and the differences with natives are not large enough to fundamentally increase the share of the population who are potential workers.
