Around the world, most societies don’t care for immigration, particularly when there’s too much of it. Global polls from Ipsos and Pew Research have illustrated the normal dislike of foreigner diversity. Human nature is deeply tribal, dictating that we all like our own group the best and are somewhat suspicious of those who don’t share [...]
A recent Fox News poll suggests that citizens are sick of immigration anarchy and want the system made into an orderly procedure. Fifty-five percent of voters want fewer legal immigrants admitted. Only 3 percent think border security is too strict, while 60 percent regard it as too lax. Sixty-eight percent want adequate border control before [...]
Among elites in Washington, population growth of any kind, even of stubbornly retro third-worlders, is preferable to a sustainable society. The reason is simple: expanding population causes GNP to rise, which looks good, even as per capita income of the citizens decreases. The idea of the country being full never occurs.
Yet even without a strong [...]
Why don’t we ever get nice straightforward polls like this in America? It would be a welcome change if Gallup or Rasmussen would ask whether we little citizens think the country is full, but no such honesty of inquiry has been forthcoming.
Australians think their country has enough people, and therefore the policy that allows the [...]
As usual, the public understands that Washington is playing make-believe when its leaders assert the border is “as secure now as it has ever been” as DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano has said repeatedly. The point of defining the border as secure is to get on with a big amnesty for millions of future Democrats.
Obama’s recent [...]
Years of worsening violence, intimidation and general unpleasantness now show up in the pollster’s results, in which a sizable minority see Muslim immigrants as a threat. A recent survey conducted by France’s Le Monde also indicate an increased willingness on the part of Europeans to express doubts about the immigration enterprise now transforming the continent.
Obama might well pay attention to the old saying: “When you’re in a hole, stop digging.”
He has dug deep with policies that the public dislikes, but he refuses to deviate from his hard-left agenda. One example: his decision to pursue a lawsuit against the consistently popular Arizona law against border anarchy. Another is the budget-buster [...]
The polls keep rolling in and mounting up with the same message: Americans want an enforcement approach to solve border anarchy, and reject the craven surrender to Mexico that Obama prefers.
Today’s example notes that just over a third of voters (34%) agree with President Obama, while 56% prefer Arizona Governor Jan Brewer, who met with [...]
Do you get the feeling that Americans are sick and tired of being gamed by parasitic illegal aliens? The jackpot baby scam, where a pregnant illegal alien crosses the border to pop out a citizen meal ticket, is rejected by a substantial majority of voters.
A recent poll shows that aliens using even cutesy babies as [...]
The Rasmussen pollsters have published a new survey just in time for the big shindig at the White House welcoming Presidente Felipe Calderon and his amnesty roadshow.
The take-away message is this: more than two-thirds of those polled don’t believe Mexico is an honest player that respects America’s right to borders and sovereignty. This opinion sampling [...]
Interesting poll results from the uber-blue state of Massachusetts — they are nuanced, shall we say.
According to the Rasmussen pollsters, a stunning 70 percent of those polled reject taxpayer-funded goodies for illegal aliens, while only 41 percent support Arizona’s enforcement law.
(Of course, many rank-and-file Democrats dislike immigration anarchy as much as anyone, unlike the D-elites, [...]
