Stating The Obvious

Polls like these are for the politicians because normal citizens already knew what most Americans desired. Enforce the laws.

A Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey found that 79% of American adults favor a proposal requiring employers to fire workers who falsify identity documents. Only 9% are opposed while 12% are not sure. Is that a significant majority for you McCain, Kyl and Graham?

Let's take it another step, 74% believe that if a person wants to rent an apartment they should be required to provide documents proving they are in the country legally. Just 17% are opposed. Is that enough for you Kennedy, Reid and Durbin?

68% of Americans believe it is Very Important to improve border enforcement and reduce illegal immigration. That view is held by 80% of Republicans, 62% of Democrats, and 64% of those not affiliated with either major political party. Is that enough for you Bush, Chertoff and Snow?

12% of Americans believe the federal government is doing enough to secure the border and reduce illegal immigration. 71% say it is not doing enough. It is blatantly obvious those in Washington are out of touch and failing to do their primary job which is represent the will of the American people. When November comes we need to begin fixing that problem.
