Americans support pathway to citizenship for illegal immigrants

If you hear just the crazy Tea Party Republicans and read some of the hateful comments online, you would start to doubt if comprehensive immigration reform can ever be passed.  But when even GOP right wing crazies like Marco Rubio predict that there is a 50% probability that undocumented immigrants will be legalized, you know that there is a lot of noise out there but one has to listen carefully to appreciate the beautiful music coming out of American homes.





Americans support path to naturalization for illegals


It is out of this cacophony that I read this Politico survey that has found that two out of three Americans actually support a path to naturalization for illegal immigrants.  Yes, about one in three oppose it, but these people do not matter and cannot be persuaded anyway, the way they cannot be persuaded to embrace universal health care or marriage equality.
