This study from the Hudson Institute has wider implications beyond the current debate over amnesty. It places the blame for its findings on a failure of patriotism.
A country whose educational institutions are less patriotic and more liberal will play a crucial role in the shaping of a less patriotic and more liberal population. Immigrants who tend to get their identity more from education than national culture (tellingly immigrants are more likely to rank professors higher than soldiers, in contrast to native-born Americans) are more likely to lean left.
For example the study finds that immigrants are more likely to identify as liberal and less likely to identify as moderate. 36 percent of immigrants identify as liberal versus 22 percent of native born Americans.
This has grimmer implications when it comes to the United States Constitution.
67.3% of the native-born think the U.S. Constitution should be the highest legal authority for Americans, but the majority of immigrant citizens think differently.
Only 37% of immigrant citizens think the U.S.Constitution should be the highest authority for Americans. 29% of immigrant citizens think international law should be above the US Constitution and 34% of them remain unsure
And that calls us back to basic questions of identity.
29 percent of immigrants consider themselves citizens of the world
That is not a good number when you are trying to build a nation, rather than another stop on the globalization tour. And that has national security implications as well.
Should the U.S. allow immigration of radical Islamists who are against the U.S. Constitution and favor replacing it with Islamic law?
Only 47.5 percent of immigrants believe we should definitely not, compared to 70 percent of native-born Americans

Why then do Rubio, McCain and Grahamesty want to make them voting citizens?
Rubio is the hispanic obama.
Obama is a liberal who ran as a liberal and governs like a liberal.
Rubio is a liberal who ran as a conservative and governs like a liberal.
Throw them out ... along with the native born Americans who think that.
Good question. I had forgotten about Paul. Why would any Republican want to make voting citizens of these criminals when all evidence shows they will only vote democRAT?

“Immigrants More Likely to Identify as Liberal, Put International Law Over Constitution”
Here is the reason that Amnesty, whether it be called Immigration Reform, Normalization, or any other weasel word or phrase must not be allowed to win!
This is the reason that any politician who is supporting this concept at any level MUST BE CONSIDERED A TRAITOR TO OUR CAUSE!
Yup. That is absolutely 100% correct. And you can bet they’ll be wanting to socialize and redistribute the “wealth” and property. And disarm the citizens.
Again, McStain, McGrahamnesty, McRubio and McPaul, et al, are absolute idiots for pushing this anti-America Marxist b/s.
This tells the story of why this Nation is bedeviled from It’s founding intentions. The vast majority of immigrants today from anywhere in the world come to the USA to milk what others have set up and believe they are working and dying for. Immigration and Naturalization are no longer resource positive.
Gotcha all the way to Cuba. Cuba is an ISLAND. There is NO BORDER to cross. You have to Land on it’s SHORES.
