Well, the story doesn’t actually call Americans big meanies, yet that will certainly be the viewpoint of people who support amnesty
(Reuters) More than half of U.S. citizens believe that most or all of the country’s 11 million illegal immigrants should be deported, according to a Reuters/Ipsos poll released on Wednesday that highlights the difficulties facing lawmakers trying to reform the U.S. immigration system.
The online survey shows resistance to easing immigration laws despite the biggest push for reform in Congress since 2007.
Thirty percent of those polled think that most illegal immigrants, with some exceptions, should be deported, while 23 percent believe all illegal immigrants should be deported.
Only 5 percent believe all illegal immigrants should be allowed to stay in the United States legally, and 31 percent want most illegal immigrants to stay.
Put me in the category of deporting most illegals with a few exceptions.And making sure they don’t come back.
As the article goes on to point out, American attitudes towards illegals has barely changed since the last amnesty push. Most are against it. It’s only the political class that is interested in passing legislation that provides a pathway to citizenship for people who broke our laws and break the law everyday they’re here. American citizens seem more interested in The Law than elected officials.
