Re: “Anti-immigration activists rally, preaching mostly to themselves

Given that Mr. Saldana mentions our poll in his recent response, I wanted to direct your readers to examine our polling data themselves. The data can be found here: http://www.nccivitas.org/media/publication-archive/fact-sheet/immigration-enforcement-and-reform-what-voters-want Our poll only polls registered voters who have voted in the last three elections. As you can see from the results, voter opinion on this issue is constant. The majority of North Carolinians (79%) believe immigration is a burden to our state. They also support the 287(g) program (91%); oppose allowing illegal aliens to attend community colleges (68%); and oppose giving non-emergency benefits to illegal alien adults (81%). While it is true that the ALIPAC rally did not draw a large crowd, that does not mean that this issue is not important to voters. Our polling demonstrates that it is. Moreover, Mr. Saldana's not so veiled suggestion that immigration reformers are racist and violent is ridiculous and unfair. The best protection for every minority is equal application of the law and this is primarily what immigration reform and enforcement is about. Jameson Taylor (nccivitas.org)
