P.S. — Immigration Protest Backlash — 4/12/06

Issue: Protests backfire! Zogby poll: National demonstrations by illegal aliens have negative impact/WorldNetDaily

DFO: I’m definitely looking at illegal aliens in a different light. I’m beginning to see their importance to our economy. But I also see the need to address this issue satisfactorily for both main countries involved. Some kind of registration system that allows us to know who’s here and for how long. On the other hand, the protests irritated me. After all, they’re in the streets flaunting our laws, while others have waited in line to join this country of immigrants.

Question: Were you turned off by the street protests?
