"In fact, when you combine those two terms, 'illegal and immigration,' it really conjures up a considerable amount of negatives. And, in fact, we find that it's really across the board."

That's why they're called "undocumented workers" now, kind of like someone who forgot his ID card at work and has to get a temporary one from security.

Democrats want cheap votes and Republicans want cheap subsidized workers for the subsidized farms in the red states. That's why this problem isn't being addressed by either party.

Whichever party in 2008 comes out against illegal immigration will win.

First, this is Zogby, which means you couldn't normally trust it.
But, in this case, he played it safe and polled a question he already knew that enormous results of.

Hope nobody paid him for this.

Next poll:
Do you require air to breath?

The fascinating thing about this poll is that although the GOP base has made the most noise about this issue, it is the Democratic blue collar base (or what is left of it) that is seen as the pollster as the most negative because they know that economic competition with third world labor is reducing their standard of living.

Illegals are taking the kinds of jobs inner city blacks used to get and they know it.

As we juxtapose zogby's poll with the FOX/Opinion Dynamics one.

Opinion is divided on eliminating public assistance, such as education and health benefits, to illegal immigrants and their children. Forty-three percent of Americans favor stopping public assistance for illegal immigrants, while 45 percent oppose it.

Even so, a 62 percent majority, including almost equal majorities of Democrats (65 percent) and Republicans (62 percent), favors allowing illegal immigrants who have jobs in the United States to apply for legal, temporary worker status

Link

Oh yes it was zogby who came out with the 5:00 PM election day poll saying kerry was going to win big.

Real good track record there.

According to the report, the greatest opponents of illegal immigration are Democrats

In my opinion, the Democrat politicians want as many illegals as they can get into the country for future votes, but the Democrat base is angry because the illegals cut in on the money they could scam for themselves from the taxpayers. Without illegals, they could pocket twice as much.

As far as illegals go - round 'em up and head 'em out.

I think that Republican leadership has been duped by the MSM into believing that "tolerance" of illegals is the majority view. In Massachusetts there are at least 2 sob stories a month in the local media about an illegal who is being "persecuted."

A new opinion poll by Zogby International indicates Americans are hardly pleased with the Bush administration on the subject of illegal immigration.

The poll, cited on CNN's "Lou Dobbs Tonight" program yesterday, noted a huge majority – 81 percent – believes local and state police should help federal authorities enforce laws against illegal immigration. Only 14 percent disagreed

This is another example of the controlled MSM, ignoring the American people and supporting the Socialist Agenda of the Progressive Democrats.

If the majority want the cops to help the feds, why do they elect mayors that forbid the police from helping the feds and legislators who pass laws requiring benefits for illegal aliens, that keep them coming here. If you took away all the benefits, you would see a significant reduction in the numbers.

It only makes sense to oppose illegal immigration.

SEE MY POST AND PASS THE WORD:

(State and Local—LEA--Authority to Enforce Immigration Law.)

"The law on this question is quite clear: arresting aliens who have violated either criminal provisions of the INA or civil provisions that render an alien deportable "IS WITHIN THE INHERENT AUTHORITY OF STATES." And such inherent arrest authority has never been preempted by Congress.

The source of this authority flows from the states’ status as sovereign entities. THEY ARE SOVEREIGN GOVERNMENTS possessing all residual powers not abridged or superceded by the U.S. Constitution. (Emphasis. Added)

I love my President - but I sure wish he'd listen to what the public is trying to tell him about illegal immigration.

Pitty that the Repbulicans are oblvious to this issue. Hillary will eat their lunch as she picks up this issue in 2008.

I mean the Republicans are the modern-day version of the flat-earth society when it comes to immigration.

Well good, then. Maybe Bush, Karl and Cheney will decide to do something about it, finally. I know, I know... Bush doesn't pay attention to polls.
