THE RANK AND FILE SUPPORT AMNESTY BY THE SAME MARGINS:
Immigration Issue Hurts GOP with More Than Just Hispanics (Max Boot, 11.08.2012, Commentary)
Respondents were then asked what should happen to most illegal immigrants working in the U.S.-should they be offered a chance to apply for legal status or deported? Sixty-five percent of respondents said they should be offered a chance to apply for legal status-what Republican politicians normally characterize as an "amnesty for illegal aliens." Only 28 percent said that they should be deported. This suggests that Republicans' anti-immigration views hurt them not only with Latinos but with a broader electorate, which is more sympathetic to undocumented migrants than Republican leaders are.
A Christian party is naturally pro-immigrant.
