Immigration Surges to Top of Most Important U.S. Problem

Gallup: “With thousands of undocumented immigrant minors crossing the nation’s southern border in recent months, the percentage of Americans citing immigration as the top problem has surged to 17% this month, up from 5% in June, and the highest seen since 2006. As a result, immigration now virtually ties ‘dissatisfaction with government,’ at 16%, as the primary issue Americans think of when asked to name the country’s top problem.”

“Americans’ perception of the main problem ailing the country continued its gradual shift away from the economy in July, while healthcare is also fading as a top-of-mind concern. At the same time, immigration has clearly captured public attention given the political and humanitarian crisis building at the border …”

    OBAMA’S CATCH and RELEASE and MURDER program in operation:

    EVERY DAY THERE ARE 12 AMERICANS MURDERED BY ILLEGALS and 8 CHILDREN MOLESTED.

    The AP identified the illegal alien as a “suburban New Orleans man” who faces a second-degree murder charge after his girlfriend was found bludgeoned to death in a bathtub in Louisiana. The man was arrested in a Katy, Texas trailer park with three children. It is unclear if they are his or if they are the same children he used to get U.S. authorities to release him with a Notice to Appear.

    IMPERIAL AMNESTY:

    THE RISE of LA RAZA FASCISM and the MEXICAN WELFARE STATE in
    AMERICA

    FUNDED AND ORCHESTRATED BY BARACK OBAMA and the DEMOCRAT
    PARTY

    Although the crisis has prompted a new flurry of legislative activity, Obama’s unilateral actions may prove far more significant. According to National Journal, Obama recently gave “quiet credence” to a plan from a left-wing activist group to grant unilateral amnesty to as many as 6 million illegal aliens currently residing in the U.S.

    Amnesty… it’s all about keeping wages for Legals depressed.

    E-VERIFY: Obama’s war on the American (Legals) worker.

    Keeping wages depressed makes campaign donors richer and more generous!

    “The principal beneficiaries of our current immigration policy are affluent Americans who hire immigrants at substandard wages for low-end work. Harvard economist George Borjas estimates that American workers lose $190 billion annually in depressed wages caused by the constant flooding of the labor market at the low-wage end.” Christian Science Monitor

    It’s amazing what can be done when the democrats REALLY want something done. What about the more than three million STILL unemployed families who are STILL without an unemployment extension since late last December? Have they forgotten about this group already? These families have been falling deeper and deeper into financial ruin over the past seven months, while both political parties played their party politics. Why is it that other countries receive financial aid, but NOT our own citizens here? Look what a disgrace the VA has been to out veterans? Who are you working for? Yourselves??

    Whatever happened to the more than three million unemployed families without an unemployment extension since late last December? We’re STILL here, and have not gone away. Although both political parties have chosen to walk away, We’re still here struggling and falling deeper into poverty and financial ruin. While the republicans fought ferociously in the senate for the Koch Brother’s oil pipeline bill to be passed, and congress approving billions of Aid dollars for the Ukraine, and more billions for the illegal migrant problem, we Americans are still here without help, and without compassion from our so called elected officials. Both political parties have utterly FAILED these unemployed families, who once believed in the system, and had contributed to it throughout the years from their paychecks. We have now become ignored, and forgotten, and no longer “newsworthy enough” to make a difference to their political agenda and image. The coming elections will bring many surprises for these so called “public servants”. The voters will not forget.
