Immigrants More Likely to Identify as Liberal, Put International Law Over Constitution
FrontPageMag.com ^ | Arpil 21, 2013 | Daniel Greenfield

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

Almost.

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.

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?

Exactly.

Why would any Republican want to give 30 million+ Undocumented Democrats Amnesty, Normalization, or Citizenship?

“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.

Actually, you’ll probably be arrested before you land.

Then they shouldn’t be here.

“Then they shouldn’t be here.”

Yep. That’s what a rigorous screening process is for. Certain people don’t belong here and shouldn’t be allowed to just waltz right in.

“Does Mexico have a history of liberty,freedom,democracy?”

Speaking of Mexicans..

*Poll: Mexicans say Mexican-Americans Owe Loyalty to Mexico Over U.S.
Thu Oct 15 11:51:17 2009 ·

(CNSNews.com) - Nearly 70 percent of Mexicans surveyed said that Mexican-Americans – including those born in the United States – owe their primary loyalty to Mexico, not the U.S.

NOTE: The last time I posted this, a freeper went nuts because I didn’t clarify the poll was taken in Mexico.
....whatever!

This is the reason for the first amnesty and the reason behind not protecting our border. The fall of our Constitutional Republic and an eventual one world socialist government.

Please join me in contacting the ‘conservative’ talking heads and ask WHY they have not exposed the corruption of the people behind this amnesty.

How do we get Rush, Hannity, Levin, Beck to expose it?? Or are they part of it??

Please send them this article!
