Will illegal immigration be a key issue in the Presidential race?…
From The Washington Times:
Voters oppose driver’s licenses for illegal aliens by a nearly five-to-one margin, a new Fox 5/Washington Times/Rasmussen Reports poll finds.As immigration politics explode into the presidential race, polls show Americans are taking a hard line on benefits for illegal aliens, including opposing driver’s licenses and such taxpayer-funded benefits as scholarships at state colleges for illegal-alien students.
The new poll found 77 percent of the adults surveyed opposed making driver’s licenses available to illegal aliens, while just 16 percent supported the idea.
Licenses fared poorly across party lines, including near-blanket opposition among self-identified Republicans, at 88 percent. Among independents and Democrats, it was still overwhelmingly unpopular, drawing 75 percent and 68 percent opposition, respectively.[snip]
Most Democratic presidential candidates have embraced the policy, including front-runner Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton, arguing it’s a matter of road safety and a valid response to the federal government’s failure to give a path to citizenship to illegal aliens.
But those on the other side, including Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Christopher J. Dodd and the entire Republican presidential field, oppose the idea.
I am glad people realize how important this issue really is and I hope that those running for office understand that we don’t want a path to citizenship for those here illegally. We want them sent packing! Do you here that Hillery Rotten Clinton?
You do know this is going to allow these illegal aliens to vote under the motor voter program, right? Of course, the democrats do and that is what they want. Illegal aliens already have voted in our elections, they are just trying to increase their numbers. Why you ask? because they overwhelmingly vote for democrats.
