Normalization, pathway to citizenship, bring out of the shadows are all code words for amnesty
Immigration is a word that is frequently and intentionally misused. The media and liberal politicians have become adept at using it to describe the invasion of the United States by illegal aliens who have entered our country by stealth.
And those illegal aliens? Consider yourself forewarned. Even the precisely descriptive term “illegal immigrant,“ by edict of Associated Press, is considered verboten. AP says people are not illegal, only actions are. Foreign nationals are no longer aliens.
Concern about illegals in the U.S. has remained steady according to Gallup polling. Fifty-nine percent of Americans say they worry “a great deal” or “a fair amount” about illegal immigration. This level of concern is typical of what Gallup has measured over the past 17 years, apart from a window between 2006 and 2011 when roughly two-thirds of Americans expressed worry. 79 % of Republicans expressed concern as opposed to 48% of Democrats. What those disparities indicate is worthy of exploration.
This 2014 poll from The Polling Company shows overwhelming support among likely voters for significantly lower immigration levels, increased enforcement and an opposition to (then) Pres. Obama’s plan to move forward with an executive action that could grant amnesty and work permits to millions of illegal aliens. 75% of likely voters want to see more enforcement of immigration laws.
According to a newly released Pew Research Center poll, 65% of Mexicans hold negative views of the United States, though they keep flooding across our border — illegally. What’s the likelihood these mostly uneducated illegals will suddenly integrate into our country, or their protesting children staging school walkouts, demonstrations and making demands — now claiming DACA status — will become proud, assimilated Americans by virtue of an illegal executive order?
This information provides a backdrop to the current discussions surrounding “normalizing” or ultimately gifting citizenship, (despite President Trump’s protestations to the contrary), to what has been described as “about 800,000” impossible to verify claims of those seeking DACA, or Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals status.
