Poll: Focus on American Jobs Before Immigration Reform

From breitbart.com:

A new poll commissioned by NumbersUSA and conducted by Pulse Opinion Research found that the majority of Americans want Congress and President Barack Obama to focus on getting unemployed Americans back to work rather than giving already-scarce jobs to immigrants, legal or illegal.

When the 1,000 likely voters were asked: “When employers say they have trouble finding an American to take a job, would it be better for the country if the employers raise the pay to attract an unemployed American worker or if they bring in a new immigrant worker to keep the labor costs down?” an overwhelming majority, 71 percent, said they think employers should “raise the pay to attract an unemployed American worker.” Only 10 percent responded that they think employers should “bring in a new immigrant worker to keep the costs down.” Eighteen percent were unsure.
