New Poll Shows Opposition to Illegal Immigration Rises After Obama’s Edict

A brand new Quinnipiac University poll shows American’s have turned sharply against illegal immigration in the wake of President Obama’s so-called “executive action” to give illegal aliens amnesty.

he new poll, taken after Obama’s amnesty edict, showed 48% of Americans opposed the President’s action with 45% in support.

This near perfect division of opinion hides some disturbing trends for the Open Borders-at-all-costs crowd.

“At the same time, support for immigrants is at its lowest level ever measured by the independent Quinnipiac University Poll. Offered three choices on what to do about illegal immigrants:
  • 48 percent of American voters say they should be allowed to stay, with a path to citizenship, down from 57 percent November 13, 2013, and the lowest this number ever has been;
  • 11 percent say immigrants should be allowed to stay, but not be allowed to apply for citizenship, consistent with previous surveys;
  • 35 percent say illegal immigrants should be required to leave the U.S., up from 26 percent 12 months ago and higher than this number ever has been.”

As Americans comes face to face with the tragic costs of unlimited illegal immigration, they are turning away from the open borders cheerleaders and toward a sane immigration policy.
