WASHINGTON - July 11, 2014 - PRLog -- New polling shows that the administration is taking heat for the illegal immigration crisis caused by the influx of the tens of thousands of Central American kids crossing the southern border in recent weeks.

The surveys, conducted by Rasmussen and IBD/TIPP, suggest that the majority of those who took part in the polls believe the president and his immigration agenda are to blame because they encourage the migration.

“Proponents of amnesty and citizenship pathways for illegals argue that the majority of Americans favor an ‘open arms’ approach to illegal immigration and they cite their own polls that purport to prove their point.   The simple truth is that the United States is a nation of immigrants—people who come to this country to make their lives better and who wind up making all of our lives better.  And so, we are, indeed, likely to welcome individuals and families of all nationalities who respect our laws and who come in through the front door to establish resident status and seek citizenship,” according to Dan Weber, president of the Association of Mature American Citizens.

“But, we are also a nation of laws and we draw the line when it comes to those who subvert the process and gain entry by finding the holes in our laws and our borders that are a result of lax control and enforcement.  The current crisis along our southern frontier is proof enough that we need thoughtful immigration laws that reflect America’s needs and views,” Weber added.

He concluded by citing a recent editorial posted on the Web site of Web site:

“When the president ignores established policies and bypasses Congress and the deliberative process to make law with his pen and phone, he shouldn't be surprised when chaos follows.  The president has made immigration reform a priority, and there's no question it's needed. But he's put much of his agenda in place without the debate and compromise that should accompany sound lawmaking and the result has been policies that weren't thoroughly thought out.  The president issued the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrival Act by executive order in 2012, allowing undocumented children who were brought here by their parents to stay in the U.S. for two years or more, if they meet certain eroci requirements.  An unintended consequence is that parents now believe that if they send their children alone across the U.S. border, they will receive a permit to stay even if apprehended by the Border Patrol.”
