While Congress Picks Their Nose, Americans Have An Immigration Plan

WASHINGTON — While Congress and the White House remain divided over what to do with the estimated 12 million illegal immigrants living in the USA, a new poll shows the American public appears to have reached a consensus on the question.

A USA TODAY/Gallup Poll taken last weekend found that 78% of respondents feel people now in the country illegally should be given a chance at citizenship.

Sen. Edward Kennedy, D-Mass., who is drafting legislation to grant illegal immigrants an opportunity to stay in the USA, said: "As with so many issues, the American people are ahead of Washington on immigration reform. They know that only a plan that offers a path to earned citizenship will fix our broken system." (USA Today)


78%. Wow.

This is a flawed and agenda pushing poll. The wording is flawed as is it's interpretation.

This matters not to the open borders crowd who will proclaim that this is proof that Americans favor amnesty and an open borders policy.

Nothing could be further from the truth. Honest poll after poll demonstrates the exact opposite of this USAToday/Gallup poll.

Here is an excellent analysis of this msm agenda pushing propaganda/poll. http://lonewacko.com/blog/archives/006567.html

Here is a Zogby/Worldnet Daily poll recently taken that would be contrary to the USAToday propaganda. http://www.worldnetdaily.com/news/article.asp?ARTICLE_ID=44154

Wow.
