BIPARTISAN: Americans Overwhelmingly DO NOT Want More Immigration, Says New Gallup Poll

BoehnerObamaPals (1)
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. 

Should Immigration Increase, Decrease, or Stay at Current Levels

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.

    1. Yes but how many people were polled? There are a number of little tricks in the statistics business and I want to make sure none of them were pulled this time. It could have been that they polled a smaller number of Democrats in a socially conservative area.

      That being said, polls are really irrelevant. When a poll says “**% is in favor of x”, you can really take it with a grain of salt, since they only pick a handful of people.

      Oh, and this article does not say that these people are not in favor of immigration REFORM, it just says they are not thrilled about the prospect of increased immigration. Given past twists of the facts (like the Mexican “act of war”) on this site, I have the right to be skeptical when claims like this are made.

    2. if the Dem’s didn’t have to fudge everything, then we wouldn’t have a gang of kids, drug lords and terrorist being given free access to this country, without ID’s of passing through customs, Kind-of makes the whole NSA meaningless when they let them walk right in and hand them a plane ticket to their city of choice, and worse, the TSA??? this would be laughable if it wasn’t true.

    3. Ok. Who runs the polls that favor democrats? I’ve never been asked anything about what I thought on immigration, gun control, the so called Affordable Care act or Obamas handling of the economy. How did he get such good ratings in the past?

  1. The only Americans who favor more immigration, are the Democratic Party, because more Dem voters, will destroy the balance of political power in America, and enable the Democrats to become de facto dictators………which is precisely what they are working towards.

    America no longer stands for freedom……..now we are a socialist dictatorship.

    1. Bullsheet! Stop rewording and posting like it’s your original opinion. Had you paid attention you would have noticed that the “Establishment” is just as bad as the liberals when it comes to pandering to illegal aliens.

    2. Hey Dummie everyone knows the establishment is corrupt! WHERE DO YOU THINK THE TEA PARTY CAME FROM?

    3. a distinction without a difference, but since you’re obviously a liberal, and obviously powerless, while thinking you’re winning something, you’re losing right along with us.

    4. When the free stuff quits flowing these libs will finally see the light. It will be to late, but they will see.

    5. It is not the Democratic Party, it is the Democrat Party. There is a definite distinction!

  2. As if the handouts for votes democrats and cheap labor loving republicans care what we the people think.

  3. Per the Constitution a President does not have such authority to legislate as such.

    Therefore, should a President do so the American citizen has zero obligation to comply with any such Presidential action.

    As such, if a public servant law enforcement agent attempts to enforce such an non-lawful “proclamation”, (because that is in fact all it will be, a proclamation, not legislated law), a proclamation given by such a lawless President, the public servant’s authority is “null and void”. The public servant who is attempting to enforce such an illegal law becomes legally a criminal their self and can there and then be apprehended; citizens arrest.

    And at that point, should it get there, the only law will be that at the end of a gun barrel. We will no longer be a land ruled by law, but by men. And the men with the guns will be the law.

    Get it? Got it? Good.

    Which brings up the point citizens can arrest illegal aliens too. Its the law people. And if a President breaks the law, he too can be arrested by a citizen and anyone attempting to protect the criminal. PERIOD

    1. SO VERY, VERY WELL SAID. The President more than any other SHOULD follow the CONSTITUTION! As he pledged to do! HE WAS LYING! HE IS A LIAR!

    2. No he is a Muslim…and according to his RELIGION…it’s OK to further the cause of ISLAM…Remember this next time he speaks…cause if his lips are moving…he’s lying….

    3. Obama is exercising what 9-11 set into motion, while he’s never to make law, not even through exective Order, they invented the patriot act and praised the DHS, now a huge monster that was never supposed to exist, there was never to be a federal police force nor to operate on American soil, ergo, how Obama intends to ram his lawless actions down everyone’s throats even some liberals still murmur support when they don’t, because they want to appear right when they are going peaceably into the slaughter with everyone else. I used to be a Democrat, never a Republican (independent) I find myself voting 95% republican because they know what the people want, after they are in power for about 6 years (and things for Americans “will” get better), then the Democrats will be the ones with the better ideas, and then vote whats best for “US” not for the media’s chooses through daily lies and feed to “we the people”.

    4. Not exactly aclay. Although the Patriot Act allows for a lot of discretionary maneuvering looking into the citizen’s affairs, there are many “proclamations” being made by Obama that has nothing at all to do with the Patriot Act. People need to stop blaming Obama’s illegal proclamations all on the Patriot Act and thus giving him a pass.

      Obama was just proven to be the chump dictator want-to-be he is by this latest Supreme Court 9-0 ruling; and what he had tried, at gun point, had nothing to do with the Patriot Act. All of Obama’s changes to the newly controversial Obamacare legislation is illegal, being done at gun point, and again nothing at all to do with the Patriot Act. Immigration lawlessness turning lose thousands of hardened illegal alien criminals onto America’s streets to co-mingle with you and your wife and your children was an illegal act on his part and done at gun point, also having nothing to do with the Patriot Act. Releasing five hardened enemy combatants was done illegally and by gun point, again nothing to do with the Patriot Act. The IRS was given their marching orders and he has no intention on investigating that, why? Because he’s holding a gun on America and doesn’t feel obliged to is whyand had nothing to do with the Patriot Act.. Running guns to Syrian rebels through Benghazi and getting a ambassador and three others slaughtered, impeding the investigation, and he could care a less while he holds a gun on America and dares anyone to stop him, also nothing to do with the Patriot Act.

      I can continue, but believe I made my point. Stop giving Obama a pass claiming the Patriot Act for his illegal and totally lawless Presidency using the threat of the end of a gun barrel to get away with it.

      Citizens have guns too though. And law enforcement works for the citizen, not some lawless politician.

    5. I know and certainly agree with all this, trust me, I’m on board and it’s in my mind how I will protect my family each and everyday, expecting to give up my life for what “we used to have as a country” BUT, the Patriot act, like the examples you so well lay out above, has allowed that same expansion of the heavily armed DHS to be directed towards us, that’s clear. 1000 vets dead and all he can think about is his brain child, (his plan coming together) at the Border, no crisis, they treked all the way through the large country Mexico, give the sufficient provisions to trek back, make it easy, but don’t make mass border crossings without background checks and customs as everyone else, hold them at the border and forget the ransom of 2 Billion dollars to the Countries, what an invitation to more of the same, this action was invited and an extension of the Dream act. Give a much smaller portion to the funds to the immigrants themselves to return.

  4. Americans Overwhelmingly DID NOT Want either HillaryCare of obamaCare !

    “If the gate’s closed, you go over the fence. If the fence is too high, we’ll pole-vault in. If that doesn’t work, we’ll parachute in. But we’re going to get (whatever it is we’re after)… ” ~ Nancy Pelosi 10/21/2010

    1. It’s always in the wording, “Honest leadership” Patriot act, Affordable care act the first three words start out a lie and there it remains.

  5. This is EXACTLY the ISSUE the TEA PARTY needs to Establish it’s BASE..
    Both Democrats and Republicans are FED UP with this AMNESTY Bull $hit..
    Labor Unions and Minorities will SUPPORT THE PARTY that DEFEATS AMNESTY!!
    It’s a GREAT CHANCE for TEA PARTY Candidates to SHINE!

  6. Truth in Media “End Partisanship”

    Ben Swann explains how the new coalition of EndPartisanship org is working to break the 2 party hold on primary elections, which currently lock around 50% of voters out of the process. Plus, Ben details a lawsuit that has now been filed in the state of New Jersey to break that hold.

  7. So-since the television media never mention what Americans are really thinking they are free to try to convince us we are in the minority in thinking we already have a mess and too much debt and charity begins at home-with Veterans and U.S. citizens.

  8. Does anyone really believe that Obama really cares about the Mexicans he is just using them as pawns do you think he would live next to them. He only cares about himself that’s all

  9. Perdonslly feel if they introduce amnesty we need to seriously break away from federal government be it through cival war or succession. This is something that needs to be seriously considered.

  10. It is up to Congress to stop authorizing his ‘executive orders’ by allowing them to stand. The President does not have the authority to make law! His job us to uphold the Constitution just like he swore to do.

    1. George it makes me mad. Bendover Boehner is supposed to be on our side. Ever since Obama got in the second term he has bowed and scraped to Obamas tune.

  11. That the seiu is a top supporter of immigration should completely bust the bubble of cheap labor.

  12. Duh. Of course middle american doesn’t want to see new immigration laws right now. Look at what the current president is doing. He just wants to seal his policies in a law.

  13. The democrats and now Rino have never listen to what the people want and thats why hopefully in November some of it will be resolved. If you dont vote as those who voted you in office wants you should be kicked out of office.

    1. it’s what the people want, but the conspiracy to fix elections like in Virginia (where their man was clearly losing) and Mississippi where the got Democrats to vote in the Republican primary, all kinds of deception to take away great peoples choices and keep the sell-outs from selling us out. Mississippi is an atrocity and should be reversed, clearly he’s not the peoples choice and that’s the paramount issue in any primary. Look at South Carolina, a great state, yet the man that lies more than Obama, Lindsey Graham, got a number of others to toss their hat in the ring to obscure Nancy Mace’s certain win, there were 6 running and that was conspiratorial by a small few he won, and Graham is really bad for this country. The Dems are planing how to take the peoples choice away, it’s about power and anything they do should be punished any way possible.

  14. The United Nations Genocide Conventions legally defines genocide as follows:

    “Article II: Genocide means any of the following acts committed with intent to destroy, in whole or in part, a national, ethnic, racial or religious group, as such:

    (a) Killing members of the group;
    (b) Causing serious bodily or mental harm to members of the group;
    (c) Deliberately inflicting on the group conditions of life calculated to bring about its physical destruction in whole or in part;
    (d) Imposing measures intended to prevent births within the group;
    (e) Forcibly transferring children of the group to another group.

    Article III: The following acts shall be punishable:

    (a) Genocide;
    (b) Conspiracy to commit genocide;
    (c) Direct and public incitement to commit genocide;
    (d) Attempt to commit genocide;
    (e) Complicity in genocide.

    Forced assimilation is an internationally recognized form of genocide.

  15. If only the military could drag Obama out of office and execute him alongside all the other traitors in the American political process. America needs a change and since it won’t come peacefully we are left with the recourse of violence, for as John F. Kennedy once said ” those who make peaceful revolution impossible, make violent revolution inevitable.
