Polling Round-Up

In November 2010, Lake Research Partners conducted a poll that included questions about immigration. Polling was conducted by telephone October 31 – November 2, 2010. The total sample was 1,200 likely, registered voters nationwide.

The majority of Democrats, Independents and Republicans support the DREAM Act. 81 percent of Democrats, 60 percent of Independents and 57 percent of Republicans supported the DREAM Act after hearing a brief description of it.

A majority of voters think that immigration is a federal issue, not a states’ issue. 56 percent of voters believed that immigration was an issue best dealt by the federal government. Only 20 percent believed the issue was best handled by the states. Another 19 percent believed both the federal and states’ governments should play a role.

More than three-fourths of voters said it was unrealistic to deport the 11 million illegal immigrants living in the U.S. 76 percent of voters agreed with the statement, “Deporting all 11 million illegal immigrants currently in the United States in unrealistic.” The majority of Democrats, Independents and Republicans alike agreed with the sentiment: 83 percent of Democrats, 75 percent of Independents and 70 percent of Republicans believed that deporting every illegal immigrant was an unrealistic goal.

Background Briefing: Senator Jeff Sessions (R-AL)

A history of hate:

Senator Jeff Sessions is one of the leading (and loudest) voices against comprehensive immigration reform in the United States Senate. He unabashedly attacks immigration reform – and immigrants. In the Senate, Sessions takes every opportunity to denounce comprehensive immigration reform, often in incendiary terms. No wonder. Senator Sessions’ allies in the anti-immigration movement are confirmed hate groups, originating from the white nationalist mastermind, John Tanton. The leading GOP Senator on the Judiciary Committee has aligned himself with people and entities that bash immigrants and make hate a priority.

What Sessions has said:

Sessions has used the Senate as a bully pulpit from which to spew anti-immigrant rhetoric. His voting record is solidly anti-immigrant, but his speeches truly give him away. In a June 27, 2007 floor statement on the Comprehensive Immigration Reform Act of 2007, Sessions played the “terrorist” card:

All of those people here including the current chairman of the association of retired Border Patrol officers, have criticized this bill in the most severe manner, saying it is a slap in the face to people who followed the law, saying it will not work, saying the 24-hour name check is not going to work at all, and will not provide security to our country, that it will actually be a benefit to terrorists. I am not saying this; they said this. It would be a benefit to terrorists. One called it the ‘Terrorist Relief Act,’ or something to that effect.



Background Briefing: Representative Steve King (R-IA)

During the now infamous immigration raids at the Agriprocessors meat packing plant in Postville, Iowa, hundreds of immigrants were corralled into the National Cattle Congress in Waterloo. Religious leaders and elected officials around the nation decried the raid, but not Congressman Steve King.

In an op-ed in the Des Moines Register, King praised the immigration raid in Postville, calling it a "step in the right direction." [2] Then, in an interview with Radio Iowa,[3] King said that the raid “was a good thing in the long run." From the interview:

King is the top-ranking Republican on a House subcommittee on immigration, and King says he will keep pressing for action to reduce the number of illegal immigrants living in the U.S. "I do have to carry that banner and I do so willingly…"

King’s perspective on the Postville raid, and his likening immigrants to cattle, are just two examples of a Congressional leader out of step with mainstream America and in step with the most disturbing arm of the extreme anti-immigrant movement.



Research paper

Research and term paper topics are generally given out by the professors and teachers to the students during their course - EffectivePapers can be a good solution in writing papers. Sometimes the students are given the option of coming up with their own topics. The topic selected for the research is of high importance. It should be a topic that is simple, interesting, and at the same time relevant to the purpose of the exercise. The topic should also be the one that gives the students enough to write on. Giving too broad or too narrow topics would be a mistake as this puts the students in tight spots with regard to the essay. Too broad topics mean there are too much data and no clue as to how to begin and end the paper. Too narrow means that there is hardly anything to research upon. So, the selection of the topic is of utmost importance.


With Election Looming, Three Polls Confirm Immigration Tops Latino Voter Concerns

Three recent polls of Latino voters show how the current immigration debate—including the national attention to Arizona’s anti-immigrant law—has dramatically influenced Latino voters’ view of political candidates, as well as their propensity to vote in November.

The polls, conducted by LatinoMetrics for the Hispanic Federation and League of United Latin American Citizens (LULAC); Dr. Ricardo Ramirez of the University of Southern California for the National Association of Latino Elected and Appointed Officials Education Fund (NALEO); and the National Opinion Research Center (NORC) at the University of Chicago for Associated Press-Univision, find that the immigration debate and the controversial Arizona law are having a mobilizing effect on Latino voters. These polls provide further proof that railing against undocumented immigrants has a profound negative impact on the way legal, voting American citizens of Latino heritage view the two parties.

The story of the November 2010 election is still to be written, and there are tremendous cross-currents at play that will impact the races. While the lack of action on comprehensive immigration reform could contribute to Latino voter apathy this cycle, the polls make it clear that the combination of national attention to Arizona’s anti-immigration law and the way many Republicans have wholeheartedly embraced an anti-immigrant agenda could energize Latinos to remain active this year.
