    OVERWHELMING MAJORITY OF AMERICANS OPPOSE AMNESTY.
    and the President is not listening to the Ameircan people.

    70% of Americans say it’s important to locate and deport those residing in the U.S. illegally, 53% say children born to illegal immigrant parents should not be automatic citizens. An incredible 92% of those responding said developing a plan to stop the flow of illegal immigrants into the U.S. is important, including 74% who said it’s very important. Just 7% said such a plan is not important. (August 20-23, 2010 ZOGBY International Poll)

    Seventy-eight percent (78%) of likely voters were opposed to legalizing the status of the estimated 12 million illegal immigrants in the U.S. with only 19% supporting it. 88% of African-Americans were opposed to legalization. Pulse Opinion Research, LLC, September, 2009

    White House, Senators Launching Immigration Push
    Saturday, January 26, 2013, WASHINGTON - President Barack Obama will launch a campaign next week aimed at overhauling the nation's flawed immigration system and creating legal status for millions, as a bipartisan Senate group nears agreement on achieving the same goals.

    Nothing new, this has been going on quite awhile.

    Sisters of Mercy - FEATURED ARTICLE: A Shameful Tradition: A History of Nativism in the United States

    from the link;
    "The Know-Nothing movement formed the American Party—a group devoted to strict limits on immigrant admissions, 21-year waiting periods for citizenship and restrictions on voting and holding office. In the 1854 and 1855 elections, the American Party won seven governorships, gained control of eight state legislatures and established a strong presence in Congress. In 1856 the party won 22 percent of the popular vote. But the decline of the American Party was as swift and dramatic as its ascent. Ironically, the slavery controversy that helped elevate anti-Catholic xenophobia in antebellum America was the driving force behind its demise. The new Republican Party siphoned away nativist voters who were more devoted to excluding slavery from the territories than to the Know-Nothings’ “war to the hilt on political Romanism.” By 1860 the movement had collapsed. Immigration from Northern and Western Europe flourished in subsequent decades, fueled by federal recruitment efforts, the Homestead Act of 1862 and spreading industrialization. "


    at least they were more transparent back then when they chose their name.

    Doesn't matter what Americans think about Amnesty. The Dumbos and the pansy-ass pandering Republicans will push for it anyway.
