We have all heard the Hollywood hype merchants and left wing opinionists who flood our media talking down to us and lecturing us on how if we don’t accept illegal immigration we’re uncivilised xenophobes living on the fringes of society. Just as in the US where border crossings are encouraged, televison and radio in Australia is soaked with Progressive loons who advocate boats of illegals should be encouraged to flood Australia’s northern coastline.
Well, I’ve yet to see a survey on the issue in NZ or Australia that is as encompassing as a recent Rasmussen poll in the US, but it wouldn’t surprise me if the results were similar. A new national telephone survey finds that 62% believe the government is not aggressive enough in deporting illegal immigrants. This is a 10% increase since last year.
32% believe illegal immigrants who have American-born children should be exempt from deportation, an element of Obama’s plan, but 51% now disagree, a figure also up by 10% on last year.
An overwhelming 83% of voters think someone should be required to prove they are legally allowed in the United States before receiving local, state or federal government services. Just 12% disagree.
These figures show the climate is changing on immigration, that people are waking up to how they have been conned by the govt, and they don’t like it. We’re not isolated xenophobes, we’re mainstream. How much longer will out of touch Western elitists in beltway districts, the bureaucracy, Hollywood and the mainstream media keep trying to push this clearly unpopular social change upon us, and use a complete reversal of reality as a means to do it?
