Most Americans Support Deporting Illegal Immigrants

I wish I could believe what Heather Ginsberg says, but unfortunately I can't. Just about every poll shows that vast majority of Americans don't support deportation of most illegals, and if this were true Romney certainly would have won the election. As it was, he only got 21% of the Hispanic vote, which many feel was a deciding factor in his loss.

I like Heather, and I understand her problem. This is a conservative enclave on the Web; and it's what Bubba wants to read; no matter how racially vile. Nobody here wants the truth. Except one or two realists like me and you.

Hate speech is popular during hard times, obviously.

dreadnaught, I never thought TownHall could have a poster more annoying than Allison, but you're really starting to close in on her. Why don't you find some other forum to troll? Or find one more to your liking.

Dear LA,

I'm a conservative Republican not a troll. We just have a serious difference of opinion in this matter. I could call whoever isn't racist here a bigot; for arguing he is the only one right. Like you're doing. You make it sound as if ONLY you can be right! But a bigot? I don't say that.--so don't say I'm a troll. Don't tell me to leave, either.

I believe I'm supplying necessary opposition to a racist fringe. Without my input, this becomes a flagrant racist fraternity.

PS, LAPhil

WHY do I annoy you? Because I make sense? You're annoyed because things won't go your way. What have I been telling you?

I also annoyed this camp last year, repeatedly telling know-it-alls Obama was going to make road kill of Mitt Romney. Nobody wanted to hear that.

Now you won't allow even SPEAKING for amnesty. It bothers you!

Well, that's a pity, because it's coming.

And stop throwing around the "racist" slur. There is nothing racist about what I posted. The people you are defending have broken our laws. If we had enforced those laws, we wouldn't have this "problem" now. They deserve nothing. They harm the US and her citizens. And deserve nothing more than what enforcement dictates -- which is certainly not a path to citizenship, and you will not find another country in the world which would so ignore their immigration legislation in the way you and others are suggesting. What happens when you amnesty people? They think their actions have been validated. So do their offspring. So you are introducing into the country the certainty that this nonsense will likely continue.

Your only serious motive for posting all that hatred is racism. To you there are no living humans out there as illegals. They are just inconveniences from a country south of here.

They are NOT harming our country or its economy. But YOU think you're sole judge and jury. When you amnesty people, the illegal immigration issue is finished; they are LEGAL. Why does that anger you?

Because you hate Mexicans.

Romney was not elected because, foolishly, most voters have not considered this THE -- or even A -- major issue. Romney was consistently demonized by the "true" conservatives for not being pure enough and election results show that many stayed home. Ironically, on this, the most important issue, Romney was to the right of every candidate out there. Some, like Gingrich and Perry, were actually terrible on it. Illegal immigration IS the most important issue because amnesty can never be reversed, nor can the disastrous effects of it. Almost every other kind of legislation can.

Sorry, # two

Amnesty has no disastrous effects. You may be swallowing the usual BS about how illegal immigrants are "costing" taxpayers billions.

I t really isn't true. If the same outrage could only be re-directed against the abortion industry; wouldn't it be fine? Instead it's spent on hate rhetoric against taco vendors and garlic harvesters.

No disastrous effects? You have no idea how many will be amnestied, but it is sure to be more than the idiotic 11 million talked about. That number may have applied years ago, but not now. And you honestly think that it will not cost this country trillions to implement this plus pay for the government programs illegals do not qualify for now but will then. Then there is the unemployment situation. How that will helped by throwing another 10 million or so into the labor market will not worsen an already bad situation only a non-thinking person like yourself could fantasize about. Then there is the likely obliteration of our culture: Think chain migation and higher birthrates.

And while you are at it, please note the nationalistic for their homelands many of the current group possess. Add that to the fact that groups like La Raza are already in place, already interfering in our political process (they have had influence in more than one White House in recent years). If you don't think that adds up to disaster, your brain isn't working.

LAPhil, I think maybe the disconnect is that most people DO want illegals deported, but they're also aware of what an overwhelming task that is.

Although we have been hearing a lot from Washington lately about new immigration policy, it seems that our legislators are not listening! A recent Reuters/Ipsos survey found that the majority of Americans want illegal immigrants deported. Clearly the 53 percent of respondents who want all or most illegal immigrants deported are not getting used to the idea of easing immigration laws.

Reuters explains their findings by saying,

These results are in line with other polls in recent years, suggesting that people’s views on immigration have not changed dramatically since the immigration debate reignited in Congress last month, according...
