WASHINGTON, D.C. — A new poll released by Gallup found only 31% of Americans approve of President Obama’s handling of immigration.

That is a 10% decrease since last year.

Approval from Democrats has fallen to 60%, with Republicans at 8% and Independents at 25%.

Some respondents want a change in immigration while others want the borders protected and illegal crossings reduced.

Recently the Obama administration put more restrictions on border agents, which many have said has tied their hands.

At the same time, there is a 56 % increase in the number of unaccompanied minors crossing the border compared to this time last year.

So far, more than 47,000 have crossed the border this year.

A CNN report said most came after the President began talking about immigration reform and the DREAM Act.

The greatest increased in illegal immigrants appears to be from Guatemala.

Vice President Joe Biden is in Guatemala today talking with leaders and is expected to ask them to take steps to reduce the number of people making the dangerous journey to the United States.

    A projection by a Conservative THINK TANK organization that amnesty for 12 million ILLEGAL aliens would mean 100 million net new poor and often illiterate within just 20 years, mainly due to “chain migration” of relatives from South of the border. The same organization predicts that poor, ILLEGAL alien family of 4 granted amnesties would drain $1.4 MILLION more in net government services used over a lifetime than it EVER paid in ANY form of taxes

    * In actual fact the claimed “need” for more educated immigrants (engineers, computer technicians, Engineers and Math experts). The need for STEM labor is exaggerated, but employers simply want to pay foreigners less money than citizens! As an example India has educated FAR MORE engineers than it can employ.

    * The Congress should pass a mandatory E-Verify program to assure workforce enforcement, with a much large quota of ICE agents to audit businesses, whereas there are only 500 to enforce the laws across this country at this time. Or with much more merit a National digital Social Security card, that carries an expensive cost, but it would reduce the fraudulent access to EBT food stamps, health care services, education and a host of other programs, that illegal aliens and non-applicable citizens are using. It would also be a great restraint against voter fraud, which Democrats don’t want? Just to remind you that you have to show ID to buy clothes, cars or even groceries. New administrations could clamp down on welfare services going ILLEGALLY to non-citizens, which is against the law, but is extensive nevertheless.

    * A real commitment from Washington to revitalize the original concept of a double layer fence. The main structure built between the United States and Mexico, identical to the Israeli barrier to halt undesirable individuals and a second chain link fence topped with concertina razor wire extending fully from the San Diego; a fence that has succeeded as a deterrent to the Brownsville, Texas. Between these to obstacles would be towers for surveillance and a fast track roadway for interdiction.

    * If these functions were accomplished Illegal aliens deport themselves as job seekers and illegal access to citizenship benefits would see them packing. With no digital ID they would soon find they couldn’t survive in America.

    • Another finding is to amend the 14th amendment and bring to an end automatic citizenship of babies smuggled into this nation by pregnant mothers, who hide that they about to give birth; arriving here at airline terminals or slipping across the border and head directly to a emergency room and for Americans to pay for all the services. Anchor Baby Syndrome, which has massive expensive costs when the illegal family lives as leeches on public assistance. This second blanket amnesty will mean the right for other family members to gain admittance. The Obama administration has cut back on restriction on welfare, so just about anybody can help themselves. CHAIN MIGRATION has high costs to the low and middle class American taxpayer.

    • ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION HAS BECOME A PLAGUE on taxpayers, which both political parties have separate agendas on how to handle the immense problem that is out of control. King Obama has a simple way that is against the rule of law, is to release 36.000 illegal criminals; some with felonies back on the street. Then because he couldn’t pass amnesty without the House Republicans signing onto the disgusting senate bill, he has arranged open borders by broadcasting to Central America and around the world, that if you can get across the border, you will not be deported. This is why 60.000 children of all ages, pregnant woman and even gang members have surfaced and waited to be collected by the U.S. border Patrol.

    THE NATIONAL TEA PARTY SAYS: NO amnesty; NO path to citizenship and given none of Obama’s freebies like as healthcare (Medicaid), housing, 4 billion dollars in fraudulent child tax credits with the compliments of Democrat Senator Harry Reid; schooling that is overcrowding our education system, EBT food stamps and other free programs. Honestly how can the president keep selling this nation down the river, adding daily billions more dollars to the already 17 TRILLION.

    If you want REAL change: elimination of illegal aliens; Abolishment of the IRS; introduce a fair or consumption tax, decrease the government size; Returning the Department of Education, Environmental Protection Agency to State control. Building the Keystone pipeline and making America self-sufficient in Energy and not dependent on foreign oil, gas. Reduce to a minimum of Regulations for growing businesses. Make corporate welfare a thing of the past. Balance the US treasury and end the deficit Use the Tea Party agenda of Ron Paul, The One Cent Solution is beautifully simple: If the government cuts one cent out of every dollar of its total spending (excluding interest payments) each year for five years, and then caps overall federal spending at 18 percent of national income from then on, we can: Reduce federal spending by $7.5 trillion over 10 years. Balance the budget by 2019.

    Have you had enough? Stop Big Brother and this Imperial Presidency from controlling every aspect of our lives. No more spying, targeting conservatives, persecuting the innocent or rewarding those in the administration who commit criminal acts—like Lerner, Holder and Clinton. We can put an end to it once and for all. So join the Nation TEA PARTY in your neighborhood, your community, your town or city and reduce the power and influence of the Republican Establishment and the Democrats.

    Its funny how they will print ’31 % percent approve’-The real story is the 69% that disapprove. There is a clear majority of people who do not want this.
