Immigration’s Reverse Migration, Litigation And Manipulation

Aren't you glad that the Supreme Court is supposed to judge Arizona's actions according to the law, not according to what the press puts in the headlines.

Immigration remains a hot topic.

A study this week reported that more people are now returning to Mexico than are coming here. And the Supreme Court heard arguments in the Obama Administration’s lawsuit to throw out Arizona’s law against illegal immigration.

Yet headlines screamed about an opinion poll saying the Arizona is unpopular. But if you read the details, they only polled Hispanics and only in three states.

Less attention was give to a second new poll–taken of registered voters across the whole country, with a cross-section of different races, ages, and so forth. It revealed that 68 percent of us say we support Arizona’s crackdown on illegal immigration.

But that poll got less media attention. It did not match what they want you to think. Aren’t you glad that the Supreme Court is supposed to judge Arizona’s actions according to the law, not according to what the press puts in the headlines.
