A Roundup of Thoughts on Immigration

Silvio Canto has a round-up of material on immigration opinion. A couple of gems:
"Fifty-eight percent (58%) of voters nationwide favor cutting off federal funds for “sanctuary cities” that offer protection to illegal immigrants." (71% Favor Requiring Foreign Visitors to Carry Universal ID Card)

It makes sense to me. Sanctuary cities promote chaos because they are defying the rule of law.

Not surprisingly, the public mood is getting more and more sour on immigration reform:

"A recent survey found that 79% of voters favor strict measures requiring employers to fire workers who provide false identification documents.

Seventy-four percent (74%) also believe that proper identification should be required for anyone to rent an apartment." (links in original omitted)
Sanctuary cities are getting to the point where they will see an awful lot of the "throw the bums out" mentality in voters. When nearly three in five say that such cities and states should lose federal funds, they you know some policies are bound to change.
