Guess you don’t get the poll option in GD so we’ll have to do this the old fashioned way.
I’m an American thinking about illegal immigration into America, but I’m wording this poll so that anyone from any country can answer.
First question: What’s your opinion on governments controlling their borders?
[li]I think all borders should be 100% free and open. People should be able to come and go as they please with no restrictions or limitations.[/li][li]I have no problem with governments regulating who comes in to their country, how many come in, and for what reason people are allowed to come in.[/li][li]Other, explain.[/li][/ol]
Second question: What do you feel about people who are against illegal immigration?
[li]Most of them are racists.[/li][li]About half of them are racists.[/li][li]Most of them are not racists.[/li][li]Other, explain.[/li][/ol]
As for me, I have no problem with governments controlling access to their countries, and although it’s blatantly obvious that amongst people who are anti illegal immigration there are racists, I don’t think that the number is that high. Personally, I think people who have no problem with illegal immigration throw around the word racist too easily. Yes, here in America the target of anti illegal immigration are usually Hispanics/Latinos, but that’s because they’re the largest group of illegal immigrants: Site, Site. So to me, the fact that Mexicans or other Latin Americans get singled out as opposed to Canadians or people from other countries is simply a matter of numbers, not racism. So for the second question, I’m leaning towards option 3, but I could be wrong and it could be 50%, but I don’t believe it’s higher than that. So I’ll chose option 4, I just don’t know.
