A Poll On Illegal Immigration

Poll: Employers Key to Stopping Illegal Immigration

Jimmy DeButts, Birmingham Business Journal, January 11, 2008

A large majority of Americans believe cracking down on
employers who hire illegal immigrants is the key to immigration
reform, according to a poll of participants encompassing most
of the political spectrum.

Regarding immigration, American Solutions [for Winning the
Future, Newt Gingrich, chairman] found:

* 77 percent said banning employers from hiring illegal immigrants
would reduce the number of illegal immigrants.

* 78 percent support heavy monetary fines against employers
who knowingly hire illegal immigrants.

* 83 percent support Internal Revenue Service audits of
companies who knowingly hire illegal immigrants if those
companies have not paid taxes owed.
