CNN Poll: Sixty-two percent think border security should be main focus in immigration reform...

The current Gang of Eight bill puts border security after legalization of illegals. Democrats will have no motivation to support stronger border security at that point. Anyone who believes otherwise is naive.

Via The Washington Examiner:
CNN also asked another question: “What should be the main focus of the U.S. government in dealing with immigration policy?” The possible answers were “Creating a path to citizenship for many immigrants who are in this country without permission from the U.S. government” and “Increasing border security to reduce or eliminate the number of immigrants coming into this country without permission from the U.S. government.”

Sixty-two percent said that increasing border security should be the main focus of the government, while 36 percent said creating a path to citizenship. There were significant differences between the parties. Democrats favored path to citizenship by a 50-49 margin. Independents answered border security by a 65-33 margin. And Republicans favored border security by a 74-24 margin.

The Gang of Eight bill under consideration is based on a sequence in which currently-illegal immigrants are first awarded legal status, and then border security is increased, and then the immigrants move to a path to citizenship.[...] Keep on reading...
