Despite the never ending stream of propaganda, as well as the outright incendiary rhetoric, that we continue to hear from any number of Democrats and faux journalists/activists such as George ‘Jorge’ Ramos, claiming illegal immigration is not a problem, a recent survey would seem to indicate that a majority of Americans do actually think that illegal immigration is a “very serious” problem. And not only that, but it would also seem indicate that there are a great many of Americans who would support measures to deport illegal immigrants currently living within the country.
It was this most recent survey that also found that: 1) Half of Americans would report an employer they suspected of hiring illegal immigrants to the government, 2) Nearly half of Americans would support the government “actively searching for illegal immigrants who have not committed any other crimes to deport them from the United States,” and 3) 39% of respondents would report their neighbors for being illegal immigrants. Now if you listen to no one other than Democrats and those in our state-controlled media you would have no idea that most Americans feel this way.
Those taking part in this specific survey were asked, “How serious a problem is ILLEGAL immigration in the US?” As it turned out, 51% of respondents replied that it is “very serious,” while 26% responded illegal immigration is “somewhat serious,” and 15% described illegal immigration as only a “minor problem.” In total, 77% of respondents believe illegal immigration is either a “very serious” or “somewhat serious” problem. Including the 15% who responded illegal immigration is a “minor problem,” 92% of Americans view illegal immigration as a problem.
Individuals were also asked about certain measures they would support in order to remove illegal immigrants currently in the country. And 55% claimed they would support “creating a phone number where people could report activity connected to illegal immigration to the government.” And it turns out that 26% would “definitely” and 24% would “probably” report an employer who was suspected of illegally employing illegal immigrants to the government. Meanwhile 13% said they would “definitely not”, 19% stated they would “probably not,” and 18% were unsure.
And it was just a little less than half, or 48%, of respondents who replied that they would either “strongly support” (23%) or “somewhat support” (25%) the government “actively searching for illegal immigrants who have not committed any other crimes to deport them from the United States.” Of the individuals polled, 38% opposed such a policy of actively searching for illegal immigrants in order to deport them, with 21% responding they would “strongly oppose” the measure and 17% replying they would “somewhat oppose” it. Those are mostly likely our ‘friends’ on the left.
But when it comes to reporting their neighbors, there Americans are a bit more divided. Those taking part in the poll were asked, “If you suspected that illegal immigrants were living in a house in your neighborhood, would you report this to the government?” While 17% responded they would “definitely not” and 24% responded they would “probably not” report their suspected illegal immigrant neighbors to the government, 39% of respondents would “definitely” (19%) or “probably” (20%) report their neighbors to the government if they were suspected of being illegal immigrants.
In this survey, 52% claimed to support a pathway to citizenship, as defined as “a way for illegal immigrants currently in the country to gain legal citizenship if they pass background checks, pay fines, and have jobs.” And regarding deportation, the survey asked, “There are just over 11 million illegal immigrants in the United States” and then asked, “Do you think it is possible for immigration agents to find and deport most of these people?” In response, 61% of those polled said it is either “definitely not” or “probably not” possible to find and deport “most of these people.”
Which, I guess, brings me to what was an angry little speech given by presidential non-candidate ‘Slow Joe Biden’ at a Hispanic Heritage Month event in Washington, D.C. on Tuesday. It was during this speech that he referred to the language being used by Donald Trump as “sick”. But this is language that makes a lot of sense to a lot of people. And what is truly sick is the mentality of those like ‘Slow Joe’ who seem to go out of their way, and in what is very plainly an attempt to gain votes, to justify the ignoring of federal law regarding illegal immigration.
Scumbags like ‘Slow Joe’ spend a lot of time casually glossing over, or leaving out of the conversation entirely, the number of violent crimes being committed by those who are in this country illegally. These illegal immigrants have no problem whatsoever compounding the fact that they are already breaking our laws, simply because they’re in our country, by choosing to commit some of the most heinous crimes imaginable. Yet those on left, ones like ‘Slow Joe’, are only too happy to not talk about any of that. Because, you see, that wouldn’t be politically correct.
