    Just a note for people who think America wants this bill, which grants instant amnesty to all 15 million illegal aliens in the country with no penalties, fines, or requirement to return to their home countries. It imposes fees etc. only on illegals who want citizenship, which most illegals aren't interested in. They merely want to get in and stay. This bill gives them what they want.

    President Bush has very low approval ratings nowadays. But more Americans approve of him, than approve of this bill.

    Just 22% Favor Stalled Immigration Bill
    Monday, June 25, 2007

    As the Senate prepares to resume debate the “comprehensive” immigration reform bill, the legislation continues to face broad public opposition. In fact, despite a massive White House effort, public opinion has barely moved since the public uproar stalled the bill just over two weeks ago.

    The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey found that just 22% of American voters currently favor the legislation. That’s down a point from 23% a couple of weeks ago and down from 26% when the debate in the Senate began. Fifty percent (50%) oppose the Senate bill while 28% are not sure.

    Among the public, there is a bi-partisan lack of enthusiasm for the Senate bill. It is supported by 22% of Republicans, 23% of Democrats, and 22% of those not affiliated with either major party. It is opposed by 52% of Republicans, 50% of Democrats, and 48% of unaffiliateds.

    From an ideological perspective, the bill is opposed by 59% of conservatives, 54% of liberals, and 45% of political moderates. Among those for whom none of the traditional ideological labels apply, just 20% are opposed.

    Support is found from 20% of conservatives, 32% of liberals, and 18% of moderates.

    Just 32% believe it would be better to pass the current bill instead of doing nothing. Forty-five percent (45%) believe it would be better to pass nothing at all.

    Doesn't matter. Haven't you heard? The American people are stupid, Congress knows best. We can't possibly understand the intricacies of the issue, so telling Congress we are against it doesn't matter.

    You are right, the arrogant politicians, can go to hell.
