Massive majority of Americans want illegal immigrants arrested

Democratic pollster Mark Penn, a former chief strategist for Hillary Clinton's 2008 presidential campaign, said on Thursday that the vast majority of Americans support turning illegal aliens over to law enforcement.

    They also oppose “sanctuary city” policies that limit local cooperation with the national government’s effort to enforce immigration law.

    Some 84 percent of Americans support turning undocumented immigrants over to authorities.

    “I asked them, ‘Do you think notifying ICE [Immigration and Customs Enforcement] would in fact increase crime because it would inhibit people from reporting crimes or does it decrease crimes because it takes criminals off the street,’ and they overwhelming said ‘decrease,’” Penn told Hill.TV’s Rising.

    The response, even of Democratic voters, was strikingly “out of sync”, Penn noticed. The public is actually very much sanctuary cities. Voters believe cities should cooperate with federal authorities when it comes to turning over people in the country illegally to immigration enforcement.

    “When someone’s arrested, they expect someone will notify federal immigration authorities just as they would expect someone who violates state tax law will find out that they notified the IRS,” the pollster said.

    The vast majority of Americans do not want illegal immigrants in the US, but certain lobbies want cheap labour and have paid politicians to promote that notion despite a total lack of support from voters.

    A low-ball estimate is there are at least 11 million to 12 million illegals in the US, but that is based on faulty Census data. More likely estimates put the number at 20 million to 30 million.

    A 2014 study in the online Electoral Studies Journal shows that in the 2008 and 2010 elections, illegal immigrant votes were very high.

    “We find that some noncitizens participate in US elections, and that this participation has been large enough to change meaningful election outcomes including Electoral College votes, and congressional elections,” wrote Jesse T. Richman, Gulshan A. Chattha, both of Old Dominion University, and David C. Earnest of George Mason University.

    More specifically, the researchers note: “Noncitizen votes likely gave Senate Democrats the pivotal 60th vote needed to overcome filibusters in order to pass health care reform and other Obama administration priorities in the 111th Congress.”

    Earlier a Rasmussen Reports poll earlier found that 53 percent of the Democratic Party supported letting illegals vote, even though it is against the law, and it is clear why. However, after the elections Democratic voters do not want their voting pets to remain in the US.
