The American People Want Immigration Reform in 2014

Spread the love

According to a brand new recent poll of the American people, the majority want some type of immigration reform to pass that includes a path to citizenship. Senator Marco Rubio was quoted saying that “we should start working on stuff that people agree on” and so begins another year with immigration waiting for legislators to make a move that will affect the 11 million undocumented immigrants residing in the U.S.

Majority of Americans agree with reform

Last year was important in convincing the voting population to take a positive stance on immigration. The effects are seen this year as “forty six percent of voters were less likely to vote for-and would punish- Congressional candidates who vote against passing immigration reform.” There appears to be a unified agreement that immigration is not going to blow over without a dramatic change to the current system.

New statistics have strong numbers showing up in favor of immigration changes and support in large numbers. Researchers believe this is because of consistent exposure to the issue which has forced people to pick a side.

Moderate Lawmakers will have to choose

Immigration supporters are thrilled that even more conservative groups have been following in the trend of supporting immigration reform. Something different being done to ensure lawmakers are on board is a step called “electoral punishment.” This is a concept where opponents to reform should expect “…relentless and constant confrontations that will escalate until they agree to support immigration reform.”

Even lawmakers who did not want to become involved in the immigration debate will have to eventually pick a side because too much pressure is being put on them to finally make a decision so reform can progress into the next stage. Negative repercussions are being promised to anyone who either avoids the issue chooses to stall again.
