Lying B*ST*RDS
Poll Misleads Readers About Border
Mark Krikorian -- National Review -- May 16 
The Most Dishonest Amnesty Poll Yet      
    
Michael Bloomberg and Rupert Murdoch's Partnership for a New American Economy (a.k.a. Billionaires for Open Borders) has released what may be the most ridiculously skewed pro-amnesty poll I've seen. The poll, conducted by McLaughlin & Associates, is timed to coincide with Tea Party Express executive Sal Russo's teaming up with Grover Norquist to push amnesty (they both co-sponsored the poll as well); it purports to show that even tea-party people support Chuck Schumer's amnesty bill, so get on with it already, Boehner!
    The mendacity of the whole exercise becomes apparent when you read the actual questions....
8. WOULD YOU SUPPORT OR OPPOSE IMMIGRATION REFORM THAT WOULD REQUIRE WE REDUCE ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION BY AT LEAST 90% BEFORE GRANTING LEGAL STATUS TO ANY UNDOCUMENTED IMMIGRANTWHO IS ALREADY IN THE UNITED STATES...?
    The Big Lie here is right up front --- there is no proposal that would require any reduction in illegal immigration (or any other precondition) before illegal immigrants are legalized...
Glenn Spencer, ABP Note: Those who support open borders lie about everything. I knew this when Bush signed the Secure Fence Act of 2006. That's why I launched Operation BEEF. And sure enough, we caught them lying. That's why next week I will fly the entire US Mexico border to get the truth about the border fence..
