Did you know that it is the consensus among religious leaders that the way to solve the problem of illegal immigration is to make more visas available to the illegals, hence, automatically turning them into legal immigrants? The numbers of immigrants, legal and illegal, now flooding the country, and their impact on American employment, is of no consequence to most of the religious leadership. However, such matters do concern the members of their congregations.
The survey was conducted among Catholics, mainline Protestants, "born again" Protestants, and Jews. Read the report to learn how the percentages break down between religious leaders and church members on issues such as desire for more immigrants, displacement of American workers by immigrants, pathway to citizenship, and the role of law enforcement.
CIS reports: "Most parishioners and congregants prefer more enforcement to cause illegal workers to go home, rather than legalization of illegal immigrants, which most religious leaders prefer. ... Most parishioners believe that enforcing the law and improving the wages and working conditions of unskilled workers to attract more Americans is the best way to deal with illegal immigration."
