Broad Nationwide Support for Law Against Reagan's Pro-Corporate Illegal Immigrant Policies

Tags: Broad Support Arizona's Anti-Illegal Immigrant Law, Against Obama's Policies

Isn't it ironic that many pro-corporate Republicans now have to fake being anti-illegal immigrants to keep their job and support the bill supported by and partially written by Neo-Nazis Party Members in this country?

This accurate poll by Non-Profit Pew Research Center indicates Americans are sick and tired of immigrants keeping wages low and even taking over once lucrative jobs such as Meat Cutting and Construction from Americans. These immigration policies were enhanced by the more pro-corporate Republicans under Reagan to allow the brutal labor practices of corporate farmers and other businesses. It is a business of high human costs at cheap labor costs.

So far I have not seen a comparison of inflation adjusted labor costs of those businesses which have taken advantage of Illegal Aliens who have no recourse when employers mistreat them and sometimes don't even pay them. This goes from illegal aliens taking care of children for the affluent or not as affluent middleclass.

Based on what is known about how important caretakers, especially if the mothers need and want to work, are for the development of babies and young children, I still don't understand why we do not have a well paid professional class of caretakers paid by government and parents as France and other European countries, especially the Scandinavian countries have now. I still do not understand why even the rich parents hire immigrants to take care of their precious children. Shouldn't the states get together so corporations do not favor one state over another so that educated folks do not have to move out of state to get a good job? This will be good for all income levels.

Broad Support for New Anti-Illegal Immigrant Law Nationwide 2010 The public broadly supports a new Arizona law aimed at dealing with illegal immigration and the law’s provisions giving police increased powers to stop and detain people who are suspected of being in the country illegally.

Fully 73% say they approve of requiring people to produce documents verifying their legal status if police ask for them. Two-thirds (67%) approve of allowing police to detain anyone who cannot verify their legal status, while 62% approve of allowing police to question people they think may be in the country illegally.

After being asked about the law’s provisions, 59% say that, considering everything, they approve of Arizona's new illegal immigration law while 32% disapprove.

The latest national survey by the Pew Research Center for the People & the Press, conducted May 6-9 among 994 adults, finds that Democrats are evenly split over Arizona’s new immigration law: 45% approve of the law and 46% disapprove. However, majorities of Democrats approve of two of the law’s principal provisions: requiring people to produce documents verifying legal status (65%) and allowing police to detain anyone unable to verify their legal status (55%).

Republicans overwhelmingly approve of the law and three provisions tested. Similarly, among independents there is little difference in opinions of the new Arizona law (64% approve) and its elements are viewed positively.

Young people are less supportive of the Arizona immigration law than are older Americans. Fewer than half (45%) of those younger than 30 approve of the new law while 47% disapprove. Majorities of older age groups – including 74% of those 65 and older – approve of the law.

However, even most young people approve of requiring people to produce documents verifying their legal status; 61% approve of this element of the law while 35% disapprove. Larger percentages of older age groups support this provision.

been the case since last fall, the public is highly critical of Barack Obama’s handling of immigration policy. Just 25% approve of the way Obama is handling the issue, while more than twice as many (54%) disapprove. That is little changed from last month (29% approve) and down slightly from last November (31%).

In the current survey, 76% of Republicans disapprove of Obama’s handling of immigration policy, while just 8% approve. Independents disapprove of Obama’s job on the issue by more than two-to-one (57% to 25%). Even among Democrats, as many disapprove (38%) as approve (37%) of the way he is handling the issue, while a quarter (25%) offer no opinion. ...
