    SNIP:
    With the Legal Workforce Act, a bill forcing companies to check the immigration status of their employees, working its way through Congress, voters nationwide continue to believe overwhelmingly that when it comes to immigration legislation the focus should be on the border.

    A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 65% of Likely U.S. Voters say it is more important to gain control of the border than to legalize the status of those already living illegally in the United States. Twenty-eight percent (28%) feel legalizing the status of illegal immigrants is more important. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

    Fifty-seven percent (57%) favor a welcoming immigration policy that is designed to keep out only national security threats, criminals and those who come here to live off our welfare system. Twenty-eight percent (28%) disagree with this kind of immigration policy, while 14% are undecided.

    Findings for both questions are consistent with surveys dating back to 2006.

    and before enforcing our immigration laws which would make it easier to secure the border because they would not be coming to work and those coming across illegal would only be seen as criminals coming here to do us real harm and should be dealth with accordingly.

    Just move out of those areas where drug cartel violence is in to safe areas. Just like I do when illegal aliens move into my neighborhood. I move three time in the past 10 years. They are spreading like a live fire.
    They only have to fear drug cartels if they are involved in drugs and crime themselves.

    They are running here for the government handout, affirmative action for illegal aliens, automatic birthright citizenship and all the benefits that goes with that label.
    Stop the flow of drug and we will stop the use of drugs.

    I would have guessed it would be more than that. Send them back home and let them come back legally.

    Maybe we need to take back our neighborhoods since the gov't. isn't doing enough to? Stop moving, they win.

    Oh you have no idea what you're saying! I have moved so many times, I can't remember them all! The times that I dug in my heels and said "This is IT, I'm NOT moving". I was forced out by a wave of violence so bad, I left in the middle of the night. My son moved back to the neighborhood he grew up in. He moved when his father in law was terrorized for a day in the house and his wife was beaten up in their own driveway. Oh no, you WILL move. The only question is how bad does it have to get before you move. Hopefully you live long enough TO move! It's not like you, personally, have to be victimized by some criminal activity. The random gunfire from a nearby birthday party is enough to break out your windows and kill the toddler asleep in a crib.
