Yet Another Poll Shows Americans Oppose Both The Policy And Procedure Of Obama's Amnesty

Fox News released a poll Wednesday showing that not only do a majority of Americans oppose the changes to immigration law President Obama made in November, but an overwhelming majority of Americans also oppose the way he made those changes.

Specifically, when asked, "Do you approve or disapprove of the recent changes Barack Obama made to how the United States government will handle illegal immigrants currently living in this country, including allowing more than four million illegal immigrants to remain temporarily in the United States to work," 51 percent of Americans said they disapproved while only 43 percent approved.

Then when asked, "Barack Obama issued an executive order to make the recent changes to how the United States handles illegal immigrants. Setting aside how you feel about the changes in policy, do you approve or disapprove of Obama bypassing Congress to make the changes," 60 percent of Americans said they disapproved of Obama's action while just 38 percent said they supported the move.

These results mirror a CNN poll which also show that Americans oppose both the substance and the procedure of Obama's executive amnesty. 

The Fox poll also found that 68 percent of Americans are concerned "that Barack Obama’s use of executive orders and acting withoutCongressional approval may be permanently altering our country’s system of checks and balances."
