As the political establishments from both major political parties push to give amnesty to illegal aliens, acting like they’re doing the will of the people, a new poll from Gallup shows that fewer than one in four Americans favor increased immigration to the United States.
And, unlike most issues facing America today, it’s completely bipartisan.
Only 14% of Republicans polled are in favor of increased immigration, but surprisingly, only 27% of Democrats favor increasing immigration from current levels.
By almost a two-to-one margin, 41% to 22%, more Americans think immigration should be lowered from present levels, rather than be increased, as Barack Obama, Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi, and Republican Speaker of the House John Boehner desire. Groups like the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, hungry to import cheap labor, are pressuring political leaders to go against the wishes of the American people, as the poll indicates.
Democrats have promised that if the Republican dominated Congress doesn’t give Obama the amnesty he desires, he will further the implementation of his dictatorship and “act alone,” bastardizing Article I, Section 1, of the Constitution, which puts all legislative powers in Congress, not the president or the Executive Branch.
