Survey: Lack Of Immigration Control Is Biggest Problem Facing U.S.

With thousands of undocumented immigrant minors crossing the nation's southern border in recent months, a new Gallup poll finds the percentage of Americans citing immigration as the top problem has surged to 17% this month, up from 5% in June, and the highest seen since 2006. 

As a result, immigration now virtually ties "dissatisfaction with government," at 16%, as the primary issue Americans think of when asked to name the country's top problem.

See the survey here.

So what do you think, Times readers? Do you agree with the survey?

    I read this in today's World Herald...

    A civil liberties group and a veteran Latino activist chastised Gov. Dave Heineman Wednesday over a letter seeking information about unaccompanied illegal immigrant children who have been transferred to the state. Activist Ben Salazar of Omaha said the governor's request was "bigoted, it’s stereotypical and it’s xenophobic."

    Keep it up, Ben. You and your "open borders" and "LaRaza" friends are awakening a sleeping giant. Trust me.
