    (Too high/Too low)!
    Too high, but without the illegal immigration it could be manageable. It's still a record for our history.

    Yes. Most anything “illegal” by definition is a problem. Annual estimates range from 10-20 million illegal immigrants annually. We aren’t helping ourselves, and we aren’t helping the world by allowing this to happen. A lifeboat only works until it gets so full it sinks. Better to take some folks safely to shore, and come back and get some more than for everyone to perish.

    They are a burden to the US. Every illegal immigrant is not a burden, but the sheer number is a burden. The trend is unsustainable.

    If he/she is paying for the college and living expenses from their own means, then he should be given a visa. If he/she is getting government support or being supported by illegal immigrants, then he/she should be deported (and illegal immigration should be stopped).

    Either: Very Poorly or Don’t Know. I won’t assume that I know everything that’s being done, but I haven’t heard of anything substantial being addressed. He (and his party) seem to think that the soil never gets too saturated to grow crops.

    Where's the poll?
    "He who does not think himself worth saving from poverty and ignorance by his own efforts, will hardly be thought worth the efforts of anybody else." -- Frederick Douglass, Self-Made Men (1872)
    "Fly-over" country voted, and The Donald is now POTUS.

    Too low. Legal immigration is the easiest way to improve the talent pool of our work force.

    2. Do you think illegal immigration is a problem?
    (Yes/No)
    No, at least not at the current levels of illegal immigration.

    3. Do you think that illegal immigrants are a burden or are of benefit to society?
    (They are a burden/They are of benefit)
    A benefit, at least at the current levels of illegal immigration.

    4. Do you feel that an illegal immigrant student who is planning to graduate from college should be given a visa in order to finish college or should be deported?
    (Given a visa/Should be deported)
    Given a visa. And then given a work visa once they graduate.

    5. Rate how you feel the Obama Administration is handling the issue of immigration.
    (Very Well/Well/Poorly/Very Poorly/Don't Know)
    Well...mainly because he's simply followed in the footsteps of his predecessors and ignored the issue, instead of pretending like it was a problem that needed to be solved.

    1. Do you think that the number of legal immigrants permitted into the US, which is 800,000 a year, is too high or too low?



    just right.


    2. Do you think illegal immigration is a problem?



    Yes

    3. Do you think that illegal immigrants are a burden or are of benefit to society?


    They are a burden to society.

    4. Do you feel that an illegal immigrant student who is planning to graduate from college should be given a visa in order to finish college or should be deported?

    Any illegal should be deported. The fact they care going to school is irrelevant.

    5. Rate how you feel the Obama Administration is handling the issue of immigration.

    If you consider the deportation numbers I say better than Bush. Seeing how is trying to push for a back door amnesty I say horrible,
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    (Too high/Too low)
    The number of annual legal immigrant numbers has been calculated based upon the ability of the nation to absorb them, available employment and the ability of our services and infrastructure to handle the influx. Therefore, the number as it now stands does not be corrected. BTW, would you please provide a link to your source of the 800,000/year you are claiming. It's my understanding that it's somewhat higher than that.

    2. Do you think illegal immigration is a problem?
    (Yes/No)
    Yes.

    3. Do you think that illegal immigrants are a burden or are of benefit to society?
    (They are a burden/They are of benefit)
    Legal immigrants are of benefit to society. Illegal immigrants are a burden on society

    4. Do you feel that an illegal immigrant student who is planning to graduate from college should be given a visa in order to finish college or should be deported?
    (Given a visa/Should be deported)
    Should be deported. They are here illegally, which means that US taxpayers have been funding their education. It may not be the child's fault; however, it most certainly is the fault of the child's parents.

    5. Rate how you feel the Obama Administration is handling the issue of immigration.
    (Very Well/Well/Poorly/Very Poorly/Don't Know)
    About the same as every other administration that ignores the real problems of illegal immigration either pandering for votes or pandering for campaign contributions from corporations wishing to exploit cheap labor.

    Re: What do you think about immigration?

    We should essentially throw open our borders to anyone with at least a college degree. What possible reason is there for keeping skilled workers out of our country? They don't take jobs away from Americans, they tend to CREATE jobs which Americans can work.

    Re: What do you think about immigration?

    I think if we were to enforce the laws on the books the problem would almost evaporate.

    We have was to come here legally and illegals should have no rights and get no benefits from our Governments State or Federal.

    I also think that anyone on the City Council of a Sanctuary City that does not begin to fallow the Laws will be charged with a Federal Crimes, do time, and be barred for life from public office because they are violating their oaths of office, right now.

    We also need to change the Constitution eliminating the anchor baby clause.

    This is not about race, it's about the rule of law and the damage being done to the economies of States and the Federal budgets.

    If it was about Mexicans we would be ignoring all the others from the Middle East, Europe, Canada,and other places.

    Follow the law and I welcome you but come here illegally and I have a problem with it.

    I took an Oath to preserve Protect and Defend the Constitution and it did not come with an expiration date on it.
