    President Barack Obama's high-profile shift on immigration last week—announcing plans to grant temporary legal status to as many as 800,000 undocumented people brought to American soil as children—has the overwhelming support of likely voters in a new Bloomberg poll released Tuesday.

    Sixty-four percent of them—and 66 percent of independents, the frequently up-for-grabs voters thought to decide elections—support the president's decision. The White House has forcefully (and rather implausibly) denied that Obama sought political gain from his announcement. But as recently as March 2011, he had said publicly that he lacked the power to halt such deportations.

    The Bloomberg survey found that just 30 percent of likely voters disagreed with the president's plan. Fifty-six percent of likely Republican voters opposed it, while 86 percent of Democrats supported it. Just 26 percent of independents sided with the Republican majority in the poll.

    The results surely cheered Obama's re-election campaign, which has been working to reassemble the victorious coalition that powered his history-making 2008 win—but it faces an uphill fight in the face of deep pessimism about the economy.

    It's a prickly problem. You have a young adult who was raised here, and either has no memory of the homeland his or her parents brought him or her from, or has never even been to that country. He or she may not even speak any other language than English, with no trace of an accent.

    We should deport these people?

    I don't think so.

    Can you imagine the trauma as a teenager upon being told you aren't even an American citizen?

    "What do you mean I have to go back to Mexico?!?!"

    We should offer a fast track naturalization to these kids. Make them taxpaying citizens.



    As for the timing of Obama's move, it is patently obvious this was electioneering.

    As a Hispanic American I take offense to Obama's embrace of criminals, then again after Fast and Furious, where an American was murdered, this does not surprise me

    Someone who was brought here as a child, or who was born here, is not a criminal.

    Try again.
