An exit poll conducted by Kellyanne Conway’s firm for FAIR found more support for enforcement than the immigration expansionists would have you believe. The options were described neutrally, with enforcement getting majority support:
52% ENFORCING AND STRENGTHENING LAWS AGAINST ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION TO ENCOURAGE THEM TO RETURN HOME
31% PROVIDING AN OPPORTUNITY FOR ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS TO BECOME LEGAL AND REMAIN IN THE COUNTRY
11% NOT MAKING ANY CHANGES TO THE CURRENT IMMIGRATION LAW
5% DO NOT KNOW (VOLUNTEERED)
1% REFUSED (VOLUNTEERED)
61% of voters favoring Arizona-style immigration laws and the nation nearly evenly divided on President Barack Obama’s executive action that gave temporary two-year work permits to illegal immigrants who had been brought to this country as children, with 40% in support and 37% opposed.
In the Breitbart News/Judicial Watch poll, 40% of Democrats and 63% of independents favored Arizona-style laws. A majority of blacks (53%-43%) favored such laws while 58% of Hispanics opposed the law. Forty percent of Hispanics, though, approved.
When it comes to Obama’s deferred action plan, the Breitbart News poll found while 68% of Democrats favored Obama’s executive action, only 40% of the nation did.
