Having lived in Los Angeles for a decade, I can certainly see how illegal immigration affects the city and Southern California in general. While I consider myself a fairly liberal person, most would probably take my views on illegal immigration as quite conservative. Apparently, I'm not the only one who shares these views.
The non-partisan, non-profit organization/think tank, Center for Immigration Studies (CIS) just published a poll on their website that is fairly interesting. The way the media has portrayed it of late, one would conclude that most people are sympathetic to the illegal immigrants and their cry for amnesty. According to this poll, which has in my view relatively neutral wording, that is not the case.
