No Voter Migration


No surpises in the new Rasmussen poll on immigration.

Fifty-eight percent (58%) of U.S. voters say a child born to an illegal immigrant in this country should not automatically become a citizen of the United States, according to a new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey.

Thirty-three percent (33%) disagree and say if a women enters the United States as an illegal alien and gives birth to a child here, that child should automatically be a U.S. citizen. That’s what the current law allows and many believe it would require a Constitutional Amendment to change the law.

Voter sentiments are basically unchanged from four years ago when the Senate was considering the immigration issue. The Senate was eventually forced to drop its plans and surrender to public opinion on the topic.

On another aspect of the debate, voters overwhelmingly oppose allowing illegal immigrants to be eligible for state and federal government benefits. Just nine percent (9%) say illegals should receive such benefits, but 85% say they should not.

    Dear Real Clear,
    I think it is very unfair to require me to pay taxes (payroll and Income). I work very hard “under the table” and make about $75,000 a year. My neighbor makes $125,000 per year but after income tax, FICA, health insurance, automobile insurance, various lisence fees he makes about the same as I do. I also get food stamps, welfare, free public housing, and this allows my wife and six kids to go back “home” for a vacation each year….Please dont disallow these benefits to me!
