61% Say Enforcing Immigration Laws Would Cut Poverty

A Rasmussen poll reports.
—————————————————————————————————-

Adults under the age of 50 are more inclined to agree that there would be less poverty if immigration laws were enforced than their elders.

Despite the billions of dollars spent on government anti-poverty programs, a majority of Americans nationwide still believe there are more poor people in the country today than there were 10 years ago. In fact, a plurality (45%) of adults thinks the current government anti-poverty programs actually increase poverty in America.

A majority of Likely U.S. Voters feel that the policies and practices of the federal government encourage illegal immigration. Most voters continue to favor strong sanctions on employers who hire illegal immigrants and landlords who rent to them. Voters also feel strongly that police should check the immigration status of drivers during routine traffic stops.

Fifty percent (50%) of adults say it’s too easy to qualify for welfare in the United States. At the same time, 41% of Americans think it’s too easy to get food stamps in this country now.

Forty-eight percent (48%) also still believe it’s possible for anyone in the United States to work their way out of poverty, a finding that has shown little change since January 2010.

  1. im actually proimmi but i think the right is correct to view immigration as entropy, however, i think the idea of maintaining a pure society is comparable to the utopianism of the left. iin my opinion, viewing immigration as the solution to maintaining a pure society would most likely lead to a totalitarianism similar to the left.. “the society”, or “the nation” is now at it’s purest form, and must be maintained, or protected.

    imo, both the left and right are totalitarian, i wouldnt say equally tolitarrian, seeing that the right favors a kind of local isolated tyranny, while the left advocates a kind of invasive, monolithic tyranny

    thats why ive long since made my peace with so many movements. ayster, honestly, i dont care about your political views. im just interested in bringing down the present system,

    sorry about the shitty msg. sent this from phone

    Right! I don’t endorse the mainstream anti-immigration movement for that reason. It simply wishes to replace totalitarian humanism with old-fashioned authoritarian nationalism.

    “imo, both the left and right are totalitarian, i wouldnt say equally tolitarrian, seeing that the right favors a kind of local isolated tyranny, while the left advocates a kind of invasive, monolithic tyranny”

    Right! I can tolerate the village fascists. I’ll just go to another village. But an all-encompassing state allows no escape.

    “thats why ive long since made my peace with so many movements”

    Ditto.

    Or perhaps, the ‘left’ and ‘right’ have both libertarian and authoritarian aspects, and the art is in enabling cooperation between the libertarians of both camps.
