REDWOOD CITY, Calif. – Immigration is now the most important issue in America, according to results from a new Gallup poll.

The poll results showed that one in six Americans, 17 percent, believe immigration is the country’s most pressing issue. That’s up from 5 percent in June and the highest seen since 2006.

Dissatisfaction with government only came in second at 16 percent on the list of America’s top problems.

This development comes with tens of thousands of undocumented immigrant youth crossing the border in recent months, as well as the recent arrest, detention and release of the most visible undocumented immigrant in America — Filipino Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Jose Antonio Vargas in the border town of McAllen, Texas.

    of course, the passage of immigration reform, this immigration lawyer will be the first one whose pocket will become loaded with millions of taxpayer money. this immigration lawyer knows damn well, immigration reform passed were meant to be broken by the elected POTUS. all this claim obummer have deported more illegal aliens are total exaggerations. the actual situations do not shows more illegal allies were deported by obummer. the best immigration amendment is to impeach the POTUS on failures to deport illegal aliens.
