Does anyone know what the the nationwide popular view on Illegal Immigration?
Everyone I know (excpet 1 dumbass) hates it and thinks we need to put some strong measures against it.

I never hear of anywhere saying XX% of population supports more border security.

It seems if it was popular someone or some major party would go after the problem, and if alot of people want it stopped why is nearly everyone not doing anything?

I would say the people in the south have a much stronger opinion.

I think its a crock to allow amnesty for illegal activity.

I've heard figures of 65% to 80% of folks are against it, depending on how far away from the border they live. Unfortunately, the politicians avoid the issue like the plague because they are too busy pandering for the hispanic vote. Pisses me right the fuck off! Amnesty, my ass. Deport the bastards and militarize the border. This is one place where Bush makes me sick.

Hispanics who are legally registered to vote also oppose illegal immigration. The politicians are pandering for the service industry when they fail to take on illegal immigration. Landscapers, nanny's, janitors, housekeeping and kitchen staff, ect...

Big business likes it's cheap (illegal) labor. Businessess donate plenty of money to candidates on both sides to make sure real immigration reform is never passed.
