Recent poll surveys across the United States of America shows a surge of strong support for the policy behind President Barack Obama’s executive action. What people are saying is – they commend his initiative on halting deportation for the undocumented parents of children born in the United States of America, but they feel that his method of implementing the same is not correct.
Very few – just around 26% of Americans think that the President’s plan for these immigrants goes too far, while more than half feel that the policy is just right – only around 22% of Americans felt that the policy on immigration is not justified. Which is why, more than 70% of the surveyed seem to be supporting the action; this shows that the American people want more and more protection for undocumented immigrants. What is going against the grain are the Republicans, who are still refusing to act and are still hooked up to their previous standpoint, thinking it’s a strong one.
What is very appealing is that 76 % of the American population feel that members of the Grand Old Party should spend more time in passing appropriate immigration reform legislation, policies that are in keeping with the requirements of undocumented immigrants. Only 21% of Americans did not go with this idea, saying instead that the party should focus more on overturning President Obama’s policies.
Over the coming weeks and months GOP leaders in the Congress will be going through all kinds of action to defer Obama’s plans and actions. They will focus on the nitty – gritty and do everything in their power to oppose the reform bill. Every trick in the book will be used to block the impending new immigration policy. What they do not fail to realize is that as much as this is about the President and his party it has much more to do with the undocumented immigrants and their families.
