Californians Open to Letting Some Illegal Immigrants Stay

Wall Street Journal reported that: In California, home to the country’s largest population of illegal immigrants, voters appear open to accommodating them. A Los Angeles Times/USC poll found that 59% of voters likely to cast a ballot next Tuesday believe an illegal immigrant who has lived and worked in the U.S. for at least two years should be allowed to stay if discovered. More than two out of every five voters said they felt strongly that this alternative should be available. By contrast, 30% of the likely voters said illegal immigrants should be deported, with 19% supporting that option strongly, according to the poll, released over the weekend. Illegal immigration has taken center stage in the California gubernatorial race since it was discovered that Republican candidate Meg Whitman employed an illegal immigrant as a housekeeper and then fired her. In Arizona, a law cracking down on illegal immigration has attracted more than $3.6 million of donations in its defense from across the country and has propelled the issue to the forefront of the midterm election campaign.
