Americans want illegal aliens deported, not given amnesty
Americans support the deportation of illegal aliens in the United States rather than the amnesty that would be granted by the immigration bill recently passed by the Senate, according to a poll conducted by The Conservative Caucus (TCC).
“Doing more to send illegal aliens home” had the support of 98 percent, in sharp contrast to President Obama’s policy of guaranteeing that most illegal aliens will not be deported regardless of congressional action. Removing amnesty for any immigration bill in Congress also had 98 percent support, while 96 percent said they would be less likely to vote for a candidate who supported amnesty.
The cost of illegal immigrants was a concern for 92 percent, while 70 percent worried about the loss of jobs for Americans.
The poll was conducted by mail, with about 8,000 responses.
The Conservative Caucus (TCC) is a grass roots public policy action organization, formed in 1974. It was active in defeating the SALT II Treaty, repealing the Catastrophic Coverage Act, blocking the Clinton health-care takeover, and having the U.S. House of Representatives impeach President Clinton.
