Gingrey Finds Opposition To Immigration Reform Bill.

From Cong. Phil Gingrey’s blog:

The results are still pouring in, but the preliminary count shows Georgians firmly opposed to this legislation:

Do you support the Senate immigration reform bill?

89% – No, it is a form of amnesty
6% – Yes, it is a good plan
6% – I don’t know, I need more information

Stay tuned for the final survey results on Friday.

    How about an informed poll:

    Have you read the immigration bill before the US Senate?

    Do you know what’s in it?

    If people read the bill AND understood it, they would know that clearly this is not a path of amnesty.

    “legislation that would provide a path to citizenship for the 12 million illegal immigrants currently in our nation”

    Gingrey is a moron who clearly hasn’t read the bill. All illegal aliens seeking U.S. citizenship have to return to their country of origin and go to the back of the line. How did that guy get through Med School?

    Phil Gingrey is an excellent Congressman and he will fight the bill tooth and nail. He will probably one of the Congressmen to try to “blue slip” the bill if it passes the Senate.

    Gingrey has his pulse on the way Georgians feel and will not bow down to pressure from the Whitehouse or any where else.

    It is amnesty. I like Fred Thompson’s remarks about the bill. He more or less inferred they were trying to put lipstick on a pig with this bill.

    “Thompson savaged the White House immigration proposal in a commentary last week. “A nation without secure borders will not long be a sovereign nation,” he said. “No matter how much lipstick Washington tries to slap onto this legislative pig, it’s not going to win any beauty contests.”

    Latest Rasmussen Polling data on the Illegal Immigration Bill:

    http://www.rasmussenreports.com/public_content/politics/just_16_believe_senate_bill_will_reduce_illegal_immigration

    Excerpts:
    The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey found that just 16% of American voters believe illegal immigration will decline if the Senate bill is passed. Seventy-four percent (74%) disagree. That figure includes 41% who believe the Senate bill will actually lead to an increase in illegal immigration.

    Overall, despite a major push by the President and others over the past week, support for the Senate bill has not increased at all. In polling conducted last night (Tuesday, May 29), 26% of voters favor passage of the bill. That’s unchanged from the 26% support found in polling conducted the previous Monday and Tuesday. Forty-eight percent (48%) of voters remain opposed.

    Gingrey says on his website that the bill provides a path to citizenship – it clearly does not. While Thompson and Sessions may be critical of the bill, at the least they criticize it based on components in the bill that they don’t like. I respect that.

    Gingrey makes stuff up and then criticizes what he conjured up out of thin air. That’s just wrong, regardless of what you feel about this bill.

    Debbie,

    Polling data and quotes from other Republicans don’t change that fact that Congressman Gingrey completely disregarded the facts on this issue. I like the good Dr., but he should not be e-mailing out statements that make false claims. I for one expect better from him.
