Well if you haven't made up your mind on which bill you support, then here's your nail in the coffin for opposing the Senate immigration bill. The group La Raza ("The Race") has approved of the travesty of a bill that the Senate passed last month. They just love how it grants all of those illegal aliens citizenship and allows them to bring all their family here thus increasing the population by over 50 million.
They even have the balls to outright lie about polling in order to make the reader think the population at large supports this crappy bill.
The Weekly Standard
THE POLITICS OF IMMIGRATION REFORM changed on March 27. That's the day the Senate Judiciary Committee approved (in a vote of 12-6) an immigration reform bill that included increased border security and law enforcement, a guest-worker program, and a path to legalization for the roughly 12 million illegals who live in the United States.
Almost immediately, polling on the immigration issue shifted toward the pro-immigrant side. Specifically, when voters were asked whether they favor "enforcement only" (like the bill passed by the House in late 2005), a guest-worker program only, or a bill similar to the Senate bill that embodied both these elements and legalization, they overwhelmingly favored the Senate approach. This polling pattern has not changed significantly in the weeks since late March--weeks that included floor debate and Senate passage (by 62-36) of the Martinez-Hagel bill, which resembles the Judiciary bill reported to the floor on March 27.
First of all the border security and law enforcement in the Senate bill is a joke, The guest worker program is an amnesty and it is even admitted in the following portion of that sentence where it legalizes illegals.
Secondly, I'm not sure what polls he's sighting here. Which voters? The illegal alien voters who are committing voter fraud? He sights no legitimate poll. Whereas I will sight mine, the Zogby poll which found that by a 2 to 1 ratio voters want the enforcement only House bill. I find it hard to believe that he could actually find that many American Citizens that favor the Senate bill.
This guy is full of crap and so is the racist La Raza. The Weekly Standard should be ashamed of itself for publishing this
article propaganda which goes on and on with lies and half truths. It also commits the tell tale sign that you are being fed a bunch of garbage on illegal immigration when it continues to compare those against illegals with being anti-immigration altogether such as in this sentence.
Another surprising Goeas [a pro-immigration pollster] finding is that Republican primary voters--not activists, but primary voters--are likely to react unfavorably to a candidate who comes across as anti-immigration or as favoring a purely punitive approach toward immigrants.
With an outright lie like that how can you believe anything else in the article?
