Proposed Immigration Bill Wildly Unpopular

Despite the best efforts of a reckless White House and feckless Republican senators, the American public knows an amnesty when it sees one, and doesn't like it at all.

Initial public reaction to the immigration proposal being debated in the Senate is decidedly negative.

A Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey conducted Monday and Tuesday night shows that just 26% of American voters favor passage of the legislation. Forty-eight percent (48%) are opposed while 26% are not sure. The bi-partisan agreement among influential Senators and the White House has been met with bi-partisan opposition among the public. The measure is opposed by 47% of Republicans, 51% of Democrats, and 46% of those not affiliated with either major party.

The American people see the face of their country changing before their very eyes and realize that the reason for that change is untrammelled illegal immigration, and they want it stopped.

Unfortunately for them, their elected leaders do not.
