Skip to comments.Immigration rallies: Do they help or hurt cause? (Poll Indicates "Backlash")
Posted on 04/12/2006 8:19:23 AM PDT by GOPGuide
SNIP a Zogby poll released Tuesday found 61 percent of likely American voters felt less sympathetic to the plight of illegal immigrants after seeing the first round of demonstrations, including the massive, Mexican-flag-waving protest in Los Angeles on March 25.
Lungren, who supported the House immigration bill passed last year but also favors a guest worker or limited residency component, said the size of the turnouts at recent demonstrations cuts both ways: "It shows strong support from some to grant legalized status, and on the other hand you have people saying, 'Look how large that number is, we don't dare do it!' "

Unfortunately, the idiots in DC are salivating at all of the "future voters" they see in the streets... the rest of us be damned.
The GOP will DEFINITELY be seeing my riot at the ballot box in Nov. if they fsck this up. I want these illegal morons OUT of my country. I want that fence put up. If they can't figure out that they're not welcome here, perhaps they should learn English?
The reaction in my small corner of Pennsylvania is that federal immigration officers, backed by state and local police, should have been on hand with buses at every rally to load 'em up and ship 'em all home.
All I ask of the GOP house is: let the voters decide in November. Don't pass any bill before letting us vote. If the Hispanic voters speak loudest and give the House to the Democrats, then amnesty will pass. But at least go down fighting in the trenches, for core Republican values. Campaign in favor of tough enforcement. You might just be surprised how many people agree with you.

"What's the reaction to all this in your neighborhoods?"
Major league ticked off, shorts in a knot, Excedrin migraine, anger...
People don't care if someone comes here legally, but the idea that we have to have open borders and absorb Mexico which, btw, Forbes Magazine states has sent up 30% of their peasant workers is the stuff of citizen Revolutions.
I may be French descent, but my people were the rabble, not the elite. It's in the genes.
Yeah keep waving that MEXICAN FLAG and DEMAND RIGHTS!
I say, throw em out. Let em get in line LEGALLY. do background checks and then decide - do we want this person?
LOL- obvious point I missed. No need to hunt them down, just put them on a bus and take them staight to the border -
Fence-sitter that's choice ! ROFLMAO
The pussies on the Hill have seen these pictures and they're not nearly bright enough to understand that these people DON'T and WON'T vote for them.
But they'll dream about all the votes, ignore their own base, and water down the House version.
Just wait until they get a few million mulsims marching in the streets for Sharia type laws. congress and Pres will crumble then as well.
Illegals immigrants cannot legally vote so they will vote illegally.
My coworkers are ultra, ultra liberals. And even they are disgusted by the demonstrations.
They already did but I don't forgive them.
Several Central American groups and American foundations also - Pew Foundation, Tides Foundation,Heinz Foundation, Ford Foundation; Rocekefeller Foundation, Open Society (George Soros)......
Working up a Illegal Alien Uniform Crime Report now - template is the FBI-DOJ Uniform Crime Report
It will identify numbers of murders, rapes, kidnappings, armed robberies, violent assaults, carjackings, thefts, etc. commited by illegal aliens each year
Over 30% of all convicts in US federal prisons are illegal aliens.
Over 95% of all wanted warrants for violent criminals in LA are for illegal aliens.
