(TPNN) – In November 2013, President Obama attempted to rev up his base by calling Republicans out for the ‘failure to pass immigration reform’, i.e. amnesty. During a speech at the Betty Ann Ong Chinese Recreation Center in San Francisco, he said, “It’s long past time to fix our broken immigration system.” He then claimed that Republicans in Congress were ‘unwilling’ to ‘catch up with the rest of the country’ insinuating that Americans supported sweeping amnesty.
With the massive influx of illegals crossing the southern border in an invasion swarm unlike any before, Obama has threatened to once again abuse executive privilege by granting amnesty to millions. Americans have been told that ‘it’s the right thing to do.’ But, a recent Economist/ You Gov.com poll clearly shows that Obama is either that out of touch with Americans or, as James Carville recently said, he simply doesn’t care what Americans think. Overwhelmingly, Americans do not agree with Obama’s amnesty plans.
The Washington Examiner reports that 81% of Americans believe the border crisis, including unaccompanied children crossing the border illegally, is serious. This is despite recent claims by Democrat Senator Harry Reid that the border is secure.
A whopping 77% say that illegals should be returned to their home countries. While the Left likes to portray those who believe these illegals, regardless of age, should be sent home as heartless, 66% expressed sympathy for whatever situation led them to journey illegally across the U.S border. However, a majority of Americans do not believe that violence in countries such as El Salvador, Honduras, and Guatemala are the main factor in them coming. In fact, 57% believe that illegals are coming to America due to a belief that the U.S. government is or will grant amnesty to illegal alien children.
Although Obama’s job approval numbers are falling, he is still threatening to grant amnesty via executive order to upwards of 5 million illegals. This possibility was confirmed by fellow Democrat Rep. Luis Gutierrez from Illinois who claims he has met with Obama in the White House to craft an amnesty plan.
